I hope and trust this message finds all the members of The Grand and Loyal Purple Brotherhood doing just fine. With the kickoff to the 2012 HC Football season a mere 71 days away I can only assume that all the brothers and sisters on this distribution are actively engaged in the requisite training for the 2012 edition of Crusader Football.
On that note, what is going on with the HCGLC? I am glad you asked.
We are actively involved in a number of operations to fulfill the mission of the HCGLC: "committed to excellence in helping Holy Cross Football win on and off the field."
I. Operation Fill Fitton Field ...self-explanatory...
II. Operation Team Impact ...a fabulous partnership with an organization doing special things...
III. Operation Touchdown ...a further extension of the partnering initiatives ongoing between the City of Worcester and Holy Cross...
I. Operation Fill Fitton Field
With an attendance of app. 16k for last year's opening kickoff vs UMass, we remain committed to selling out Fitton Field for this year's opening game under the lights vs the Wildcats of UNH. Please visit Fill Fitton Field (major high five and thanks to Brendan Devlin '01 for launching and managing this site) and sign the Guestbook.
Share the site and guestbook with your friends, teammates, and classmates so they can do the same. This simple effort will motivate more of our troops to join in on the Thursday evening prior to Labor Day at the hallowed ground at the base of campus, aka Fitton Field.
Who has already committed to being at Fitton Field on the evening of August 30th and what do they have to say? (Do not respond here. Go to the site and add your name and message.)
