See no evil, hear no evil, do no evil ... in fact, do good!

  

  

It has been quite a week and it is only Wednesday! Since last Friday, we won our first soccer game [more below on that], we celebrated two more Volunteer birthdays, the nation has had and disputed, at least by some, an election [more on that below as well] and we posted the first officially printed cholera prevention signs [not as good as ours, but more colorful] in the neighborhood, which thanks to God and human diligence, remains cholera free. 

The Show Must Go On and so must the turkey ...

  

We won! Moynihan Family/Staff 24 vs. Vols 12!  Most important, no injuries--well, except pride.

It was a great game--which got better when I had to leave [We were tied at that moment.] to attend to the turkey that had to be eviscerated [hacked in half for those with a stronger stomach] and cooked on our grill barbecue style after the gas for our regular stove ran out. I have to say that I was bit more concerned with food hygiene under the current circumstances--so the turkey was served Cajun style: a bit blackened.   

A Joyful Occasion

Back row from left to right: Aimee Maier ('98-'99), Reese Grondin ('01-'02), Elizabeth Mason ('03-'05), Mary Jo LeGrand ('00-'01), Kate McDodson ('03-'04), Elizabeth O'Connell ('02-'04), Jimi Grondin ('01-'02), Brian Rhodes ('04-'05), Bill Newton ('05-'06).  Front row: Patrick and Christina Moynihan.

We offer congratulations to our Director of Development Elizabeth Cross, née O’Connell, for her marriage to Adam Cross on Saturday.  The marriage was as beautiful as Elizabeth standing before the altar with her new husband.  Friends and family from all over the country flew in to participate in the joyous event, and I was taken back a bit by how many Volunteers (pictured above) are now married – many with children. I knew Christina and I were getting older but not that much older.
