Chatfield College First-ever Homecoming Celebration Exceeds Expectations

October 18th, 2010 Chatfield College First-ever Homecoming Celebration Exceeds Expectations

Chatfield College entertained more than 200 alumni, faculty, staff, supporters and community members at its first-ever Homecoming celebration on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010 at the St. Martin campus. 

The all-day event included an alumni reception, a procession to and a prayer service at the Ursuline Cemetery, a student-produced variety show, an art show, picnic, live entertainment throughout the day, and corn hole and tennis tournaments.

Early morning guests enjoyed an alumni reception, sponsored by Paul and Terri Muething, including donuts from Holtman's Donuts and coffee courtesy of Kiley's Market and Wallingford Coffee.

Guests then walked to the Ursuline cemetary for a prayer service.  They visited and left roses at the graves of Sr. Julia Chatfield, foundress of the Brown County Ursulines, Sr. Miriam Thompson, Chatfield's first Dean, and Sr. Xavier Ladrigan, who was the college's first president.

During the student variety show, sponsored by National Bank and Trust, students from the St. Martin campus told of their personal journeys at Chatfield. The Findlay Market location student choir ended the show with a compilation of four musical numbers. The show marked the first live performance for the choir, and the first time on stage for many of the students.

Students displayed their impressive creativity at the Art Show, sponsored by Dinsmore and Shohl LLP and George and Kim Vincent, which featured paintings, drawings, photography and pottery from both campuses.

During the picnic, guests were served fried chicken from Kiley's Market, vegetables, apples and snacks compliments of sponsors Dennis and Vicki Sweeney. Drinks were provided by the Coca Cola company.  Live entertainment included St. Martin student Lydia Tissander, folk singer Gregory Albright, Cincinnati musician John Ford, sponsored by River City Furniture, and Blue Grass group Back Porch Hounds, sponsored by The Hauser Group.

Fifteen teams participated in the corn hole tournament, sponsored by ProSource, and the tennis tournament, sponsored by Kibbler Lumber. The first place prize winners received $25 gift cards, along with a Chatfield backpack and hooded sweatshirt. Second place prize winners received $15 gift cards and a Chatfield backpack and t-shirt.

The celebration was concluded with a mass at the St. Martin chapel sponsored by Father Ray Kammerer and the St. Augustine Parish.     

If you missed this event, don't worry.  Chatfield plans to continue the Homecoming celebration tradition for years to come.
