A message from the President
of the Brophy Dads' Club

Welcome!

It is my pleasure to welcome all of our dads to Brophy College Preparatory for the 2017-2018 academic year. 

The Dads’ Club is the perfect venue to meet new friends, serve our school community, and more fully enjoy the “Brophy Experience.” We coordinate and staff many of the community service and Brophy social events. We encourage you to get involved early and take advantage of this special time in your son’s life. 

Please put the Dads' Club monthly meetings on your calendar and plan to attend. We guarantee fun, fellowship, food and drink! Check our twice-monthly newsletter for dates.
 
Have a great year, and please contact me if you have any questions about Dads' Club!

Roger F. Velez Jr.
Brophy Dads’ Club President

Father-Son Communion Breakfast – Saturday, October 21 – Register Now!
Dads, you will not want to miss this! It’s a memorable father and son opportunity that only comes once a year, (and only four times in a lifetime)! Join other Bronco dads and sons to share communion, breakfast, and be uplifted as the annual Alumni Awards are presented. If you have any questions, please contact co-chairs Robert Pasionek/ rapasionek@gmail.com or Brian Smuckler/ brian.smuckler@cbre.com.
 
 
Fall Father-Son Work Weekend at Manresa – Sign-Ups Closed as of Sept. 3
The Fall Father-Son Work Weekend is scheduled for Friday-Sunday, Sept. 29-Oct.1. This weekend is about enjoying the moment spending time with your son and helping the school, all during one great opportunity! Fathers and sons arrive Friday afternoon with a kick-off dinner in the evening. Saturday morning will start with a hearty breakfast followed by working the grounds and performing a variety of general maintenance tasks. After lunch, there is free time with dinner in the evening. Sunday, breakfast is served, followed by a final clean-up of the facilities. All meals and refreshments are provided.
 
Since space at Manresa is limited, registrations are reviewed to ensure a balance of graduating classes with priority also given to those who have not had an opportunity to attend. If you signed up by Sunday, Sept. 3, you will receive an email by Friday, Sept. 8 letting you know if you have been confirmed to attend, or if you are on the waitlist. If there are cancellations, father/son groups will be added as space allows.

Watch for an email next week asking for parent and alumni volunteers who are interested in participating to complete a questionnaire. That email will also include dates and topics.
