Annual Golf Outing
We are moving to Sportsman’s Country Club in Northbrook, Ill. The price will stay the same. Enjoy afternoon golf followed by a steak dinner at Techny. If you have not been receiving emails from the Divine Word Alumni Association, please contact Mike Cousins: svdalumni@gmail. com so that he can add you to the mailing list. We also want to make sure to get your feedback on future golf outings. We are considering moving the annual golf outing to a Saturday or Sunday for those who find it hard to make it on a Monday. However, we need your input to see if there is enough interest. We want you to be a part of the conversation.
Alumni will meet at the Divine Word Residence in Riverside, Calif. Rooms will be available at the Marriott in downtown Riverside. Details are still being worked out for the weekend.
