Shamrock November Meeting

It's time again for a Shamrock meeting - Wednesday, November 6 at 7:00pm. Being held at the Lumen Christi Mequon Church - Library (which is just inside the main entrance off Mequon Road). Updates from committee chairs will be beneficial to maintain momentum and to see where help is needed.

All committee chairs should attend or at least communicate their update with their respective co-chair. All potential volunteers are also welcome to find out more about Shamrock 2014 and offer your suggestions and ideas. Planning all details of the event requires many hands and several leaders, so please come and see where you can offer your time and talent. We look forward to seeing you all this week wednesday.

Twilight Trivia Does It Again!

A heartfelt Thank You goes out to everyone in attendance this past Saturday night for the fun and always spirited Twilight Trivia. More than 200 in attendance helped to create an atmosphere of friendly competition and interesting representation of this year's theme - the 1980s! Below are a few snap shots of the evening with more online at Again, thank you to all who came out to play with family and friends – yet another highly successful pre-Shamrock event to benefit our kids!

Shamrock 2014 Releases Promo Video!

Over the years we've tried to generate excitement for Shamrock by simply providing a visual teaser of why Shamrock exists. It's, of course, our kids. Shamrock 2014 has now posted online this year's promo video in the style of a movie trailer. It's a fun, quick look into the lives of our kids at Lumen Christi Catholic School while answering the question, "What is Shamrock"?

Visit now to view and share the spirit of Shamrock through this video and please, tell your friends, family and neighbors too!

In Case You Missed It: New Shamrock 2014 Co-Chairs!

October 2nd, 2013 marked the first Shamrock 2014 meeting focusing on committee chairs, their duties and finding new co-chairs to head up the 2014 event. Counting more than 25 completely filling the conference room at Lumen Christi Library - Mequon campus, we couldn't ask for a better response for this kick-off meeting. As new volunteers were introduced to Shamrock, we still needed to accomplish that looming question – Who will chair Shamrock 2014?

We are proud to announce this year's co-chairs are stepping up in a unique manner to create a larger team able to truly divide and conquer all the duties of Shamrock efficiently. Barb Varney, Program and Finance Chair, Colleen Bigonia and Fran Blaubach, Venue Co-Chairs, and Christine Burke-Duecker along with Dierdre Schneider, Raffle Co-Chairs. This larger group of Shamrock co-chairs will help to organize the many event details and committees by handling specific groups of committees while working together as a whole to maintain a solid focus and create another successful event.

A huge Thank You goes out to these volunteers and all our volunteers who truly make Shamrock possible, each and every year!
