118th Monon Bell countdown: 24 days!!

Have you made your plans yet?


If you’re going to the game be sure to get your tickets before the game is sold out:


Can’t make it to Greencastle? With over 40+ Monon Bell Telecasts already planned hopefully there is a gathering near you:




What a blessing it is to bring a child into the world. Over the past two months 3 of our fellow classmates have experienced that joy (that we are aware of at this time):

  • Evan Schmit and his wife Lindsay welcomed a baby boy, Ethan David Schmit on October 4th, 2011.  Evan has been able to take a couple weeks off work to help his wife at home and enjoy getting  accustomed to life with a newborn!
  • John Rose and wife Clare welcomed a baby boy, James Loren Rose on September 14th, 2011. John and Clare live out in Princeton, NJ.
  • For the trifecta, Michael Ruffing and his wife Leslie  just celebrated their daughter’s 2-month birthday during her Baptism this past Sunday.Luciana McCarthy Ruffing was born back on August 16th, 2011 in Chicago.

Do you have new children to tell us about? Did you just get engaged or married?? Did you just pass an exam, earn a new degree, receive an award??? Feel free to brag – send us a message below and we’ll spread the word!
