MSM Junior Classical League helps victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma

On September 23, 2017, 21 members of the Mount St. Mary Junior Classical League (Latin Club) and friends washed over 40 cars to raise money to help victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  The club wanted a way to help provide relief and decided to sponsor something culturally appropriate yet fun.  Latin club president, Evelyn Nick, proposed the fundraiser to the administration, who then approved it.  All determined that Saturday the 23rd would be perfect since it was homecoming weekend and alumnae would be visiting the campus over the weekend.  One alumna, who is now a Latin teacher in Washington, D.C., stopped in to make her donation and think about the fun times in Latin class while she was at MSM. The event also drew in neighbors of Mount St. Mary who were happy to help the effort made for people hit so hard by the recent disasters.  God provided great weather for the event, and the students worked hard throughout the morning.  All proceeds ($1249) will go to the the “Texas Flood Relief” fund of Catholic Charities of Arkansas which is providing aid to victims of both Harvey and Irma.
