Cardinal ‘M’ Club Weekend

The Cardinal ‘M’ Club is looking forward to celebrating an exciting 2013-2014 athletic season at its annual Cardinal ‘M’ Club Weekend on Sept. 12-14 — the same weekend as Young Alumni Weekend.

Friday night’s Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony will kick off the weekend’s events. The Cardinal ‘M’ Club, along with the Alumni Association, will induct new members into the Sports Hall of Fame. The ceremony will also recognize Saint Mary’s 2013-2014 award-winners, Outstanding Male and Female Athletes and Outstanding Scholar Athletes. Following the ceremony will be an on-campus reception for hall of fame inductees, along with family and friends.

Saturday’s activities include the annual golf tournament and dinner at Cedar Valley Golf Course and an alumni and friends evening social downtown. The ‘M’ Club committee advises people to sign up early for the golf tournament as the popular event fills quickly.

On Sunday, several alumni games and events will be held on campus. “Each year the athletic department, the university, and our alumni look forward to ‘M’ Club Weekend,” Athletic Director Nikki Fennern said. “It is a great chance to celebrate the 2013-14 athletic year, celebrate our student-athlete award winners, and honor our hall of fame inductees. In addition, we look forward to the opportunities to reconnect with our alumni during the awards ceremony, golf outing, alumni games and other activities. It is going to be a great weekend.”

Young Alumni Weekend

Undergraduates from the past decade get their own time to reconnect during Young Alumni Weekend.

Once again this year, the weekend will include opportunities to catch up with favorite faculty and staff, enjoy live music and a barbecue on the plaza, race through the picturesque bluffs during the Cardinal Dash, and converge downtown Winona for a night of spirited fun.

And, as it coincides with Cardinal ‘M’ Club weekend, alumni have the opportunity to cheer on Cardinal athletics, enjoy a golf game or even play a game or two with your alumni teammates. The campus will be in full swing with a variety of fall activities.

Last year about 170 young alumni enjoyed the weekend events. Watch for more details about how to register; catch up with the friends you haven’t seen for a while, and return to the spot where all the memories happened.
