Rock the Lawn, canceled for 2020

Rock the Lawn

 Rock the Lawn is an Academy of Holy Angels all-community summer celebration!  The event includes food, beer and wine, games, music and great fellowship.  The purpose of Rock the Lawn is to bring the AHA community together including alumni, parents, teachers and the Sisters of St. Joseph to have fun! The events in 2016-19 were amazing with an average of about 1000 people each year.

*SADLY, Rock the Lawn 2020 was originally scheduled for Saturday, June 20 but was canceled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We look forward to seeing you on the lawn in the summer of 2021 along with your family, classmates and friends.  We will be in need of business sponsorships.  The advertising opportunities are outstanding!  Contact Jesse Foley '89 at for more information.
