The Founder would have had fun today.
...Park, St. Edward's Park that is. It's true. St. Edward's does not belong to North Quad or God Quad rather we belong to St. Edward's Park, that green area just east of the Dome. Over time, our fountain may have disappeared, and we had to cede land for the building of Cavanaugh and Zahm Halls, the fact remains, as does the deed, that the green space south of Hall is St. Edward's Park. Amid games of bocce and croquet and cups of hot chocolate, cookies, and cigars, the Gentlemen of St. Ed's renewed their claim to this small tract of land as they celebrated "A Day in the Park." Of the day, John Wetzel, Sted's senior and former Hall VP, said, "You can always tell that it is a true gentlemen's day in the park by the the hand crafted wooden furniture they bring out to the lawn...and the fine cigars too, of course."
Happy Founder's Week, and may the Founder smile on you always!
