|Lynn Morris, Allison McGrade, and Stephanie Arrington|
Allison McGrade is the mother of Nicola ’14 and Nena ’16. She has taken on the role as chairperson of the Hospitality Committee for our Parent Council and recruited a great group of moms to join her team. Allison is the team parent for Lacrosse and joined many other Parent Council parents in hosting a freshman parent social at her house.
Here are Allison’s own words about her volunteer experience at Rosary:
"I wasn't sure how to get involved at Rosary, so I was happy that other parents reached out to me to fill the hospitality position on Parent Council. I really enjoyed all the events we were asked to host last year. I met so many parents and girls that were just familiar faces before. Whenever we set-up for an event the staff was so appreciative and it made us feel good to take one small job off of their hands so they could focus on the big responsibilities that they have. The duties of our committee are providing light snacks and refreshments at evening events that include grade-level parent meetings, prospective student open houses, and various student/parent gatherings. The committee is made-up of six dedicated Rosary moms. The November Open House and High School Placement Test day are two larger events for us, so we recruited some extra help from Jill DeFranco (Mary Kate 17', Gina 16') , Julie Rounds (Amanda 16') and Celia Gerish (Danella 16') who are our on-call members. That is what is great about helping out with this committee...you can help out occasionally and still make a huge contribution.
