Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
Well, it’s another eventful week for Irish sports — your #1 seeded Men’s Lacrosse team (with three local students) came back from a first half deficit to beat Towson 12-10 and advance to the Denver round next Saturday. Also, Everett Golson announced his intention to transfer, putting an early end to what would have been an ongoing discussion about who would be Notre Dame’s starter in the 2015 season. Finally, the Softball team (also with three local students) was seeded #16 in the NCAA tournament, and will play at home on Friday at 2pm local time. Good luck to all these outstanding athletes!
While it’s still fairly quiet on the club calendar in May, there’s a bunch of great events coming up in June, so read on for those. Also check your email boxes in the next week for the Club’s newsletter, where we’ll have more information about our upcoming events, and an introduction to our visiting Summer Service students. For all of our students who just wrapped up finals on Friday, especially for those graduating this coming week, the club hopes you have a great summer and we hope to see you at some of our events!

For the remainder of 2015, the Notre Dame Club will be stepping up its efforts to support the greater San Diego community. Martin Holguin (MBA ’14) will be coordinating two projects between June and August. Martin’s efforts begin with a dinner serving opportunity. Saturday, June 13th from 4PM-7PM the Club will serve dinner to San Diego’s homeless at the St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter in downtown San Diego. We have 12 slots and would love to have you! – If you’re interested or if you would like more information please contact Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org. After the serving, the group will head over to Lolita’s for a short social to meet and greet each other over a taco or two.
