The ballot for first assistant to the U.S. regional superior went out yesterday and is due by Nov. 17, 2009. If no one wins a majority, a second ballot....yadda yadda. You know the drill. (At this rate we could drag out electing the entire regional council all the way to May 2010 when we can take up the proposal to abolish the region at our assembly. Br. Wayne wisely thought it best to proceed with a vote and not presume members will select him for first assistant. Of course, we are presuming this is OK with Rome.
TODAY (Ignore the flyer that says Tuesday) from 3:30 ~ 4:30 p.m. we will have a RIVERKEEPER PRESENTATION in the Asia Room. Mr. Phillip Musegass, Hudson River Program Director of the Hudson River and its Tributaries, and To Safeguard New York City's and Westchester County's Water Supply (but I think his friends just call him "Phil") will speak to us on current projects to save the Hudson River.
YESTERDAY, Fr. John Casey gave a well-attended talk in our library on his work with inter-religious dialogue. He is now off to Japan and points east for various seminars and symposia on this topic and is due back in January.
TOMORROW archives is sponsoring a fun activity for Hallowe'en in which, if I understand the announcement correctly, we can have ourselves digitally inserted into photos of our favorite movie stars or scenes. Trouble is, I started out identifying with Luke Skywalker, now I am more Obiwan Kenobi but am rushing toward Yoda. Maybe I'll stick with Cher in Moonstruck...
And starting on Friday the rarely seen natural sculpture of the late Sr. Marie Pierre Semler will be exhibited in our Spellman Room.
Photos to follow!
