Jesse Foley '89 

Hello Fellow Academy of Holy Angels Alumni!

I hope you enjoy our first AHA Alumni Newsletter of 2016. We’ve got lots of exciting news to share! With assistance from many AHA alumni and friends across multiple AHA classes, we have been busy putting together our vision and plans to better welcome, partner and engage with AHA alumni. We hope you stop in to visit AHA during an event or on a day of your choosing.  May God Bless!

Rock the LawnSave the Date, June 24, for Rock the Lawn 

AHA Alumni Staff and alumni volunteers are planning our first ever all-school reunion and music festival called “Rock the Lawn” for Friday, June 24!  

Alumni volunteers have been working hard to make this event the biggest AHA alumni event ever.  The objective of this event is simple, to bring together all AHA community members, alumni along with current and former AHA staff and the Sisters of St. Joseph to have fun!

Music headliner is AHA Alumni Paul Peterson ’83 who has played with many of the top musicians in the world including Stevie Wonder, Prince, Morris Day, the Steve Miller Band and many more.  To read more about Paul Peterson, go to http://paulpeterson.com.  We are also excited to announce that Mick Sterling and the Studbrothers will open for Paul Peterson.

Rock the Lawn will also include a Mass, Tours of AHA, Food, Beer Tent, Wine and Games.  We are still in need of alumni volunteers to help with our many active committees and we are offering businesses the opportunity to sponsor and advertise. If you would like to learn more about sponsoring Rock the Lawn or to volunteer, contact Jesse Foley. Registration for this event begins on February 26!  More details coming very soon!
