Cabrini’s social committee is back and better than ever. Actually, this committee has existed at Cabrini for about 20 years but died off for a few years in the past. Just recently its members have been trying to revive it and get it back on track. For the past three or four years they have been trying to get more people involved and sponsor more events.

The committee is for the faculty and staff of the college. Ruth Richardson, one of the committee’s beginners, says that it is “our way of getting together”. There are usually eight to ten members on this committee. This year’s committee consists of Richardson, Cindy Ross, Cathy McRea, Colleen Poole, Joan Kelly, Maggie Mcguiness, Debbie Moran and Maria Small. The committee’s mission according to Richardson is “to bring staff and faculty together outside of the campus community.”

The social committee sponsors faculty and staff events. This semester they had the recent murder mystery program in the mansion. Last semester, they also had a raffle for the staff Christmas party where they raffled off three homemade wreaths, three baskets of cheer and one pair of tickets to the murder mystery theatre. The winner of the tickets was Cabrini’s own math professor, Bob McGee. This spring they also plan to sell Mother’s Day flowers to the campus community to help raise money for future events.

They are also planning to do a few bus trips but the destinations have not been decided. Richardson states, “It usually depends on the group that is going and where they want to go.” Last December they took a bus and a van, with a total of about 30 members of staff to Winterthur museum. The money made from the various fundraisers is used to help pay for these various events and allows them to sponsor more events.

Next year is the 45th anniversary of the college. Richardson said, “The committee is trying to decide what they will do for this event.” This event might include students. So even though this committee is for the staff of the college, there are times where students can be involved and have a part in the committees events.

The committee will continue to keep growing and sponsor more events. Now when you see something sponsored by the social committee, you know whom to thank for the event that’s taking place.
