For those who missed our own Sam Mattis performing in the Olympics, he was the only one of three Americans to qualify for the finals and a chance to metal. Here are some snippets from the discus throw finals coverage : Nothing but rave reviews from the broadcasters as you will hear. And while he did not win a medal, when they showed the people who did - notice whose name they mention! Congratulations to Sam, one heck of a forever Olympian! #sammattis #friarproud #mad4mattis #foreverolympian ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Friar Alumni Family! Hope you are all having a lovely Friday 🙂My name is Joey Lohmann (Friar '22) and I would love to share with you my passion project that I think might be of interest to some of you too. I co-founded an initiative called Lockdown Letters, which has been sending thank you letters to front-line workers throughout the pandemic. We just recently launched our "Healthcare Hero Sticker Sale" and are selling 5 designs (shown in the picture below). These stickers can be placed on laptops, water bottles, fridges, and just about anywhere! In addition to celebrating front-line workers, ALL of the proceeds go toward Project HOPE, which has been supplying under-resourced countries with medical equipment, supplies, and personnel abroad. Although the United States is starting to heal and return to normal, several countries cannot say the same and every bit helps. If anyone is interested, you can order these stickers to be shipped anywhere in the US mainland! The form closes July 12th at 11:59pm EST. Your support means so much to us and tons of communities worldwide. Thank you!!STICKER ORDER FORM: forms.gle/aEkQshM3PhUP6fGT6Website: www.lockdownletters.org/And a MAJOR shoutout to Friar Alumna Doris Cochran-Fikes, who has been a champion writer for us over the past year, individually crafting almost 30 letters, stories, and poems to front-line workers nationwide. You are the absolute best, Doris! ... See MoreSee Less

With great sadness, I share Lesley Wolff's post about a wonderful mind, mom, and mover that is now lost way, way too soon. Our Friar family and the class of 1994 is now less one bright light - Alison Greenspan you will be missed greatly. ... See MoreSee Less

Per Sally Katz prior posting, I found my 1988 Friars Certificate, along with several photos. Here are 2 of them: ‘88 Friars Abbot & Scribe (Jim McLaughlin & Jim Karp) with my fellow ‘89 Friar Chris Ahearn, plus me in between ‘88ers Jim Mikloss & and Greg Catcher. As some have learned over the years, I met my husband “Jimmy Mac” @ the Friars Smoker, but we aren’t pictured together here as we were NOT yet dating...that would come a few days later after ‘88 Friar Chris Flynn’s held an off-campus party. Here’s to all of our great FRIARS memories!! ❤️💙❤️💙 ... See MoreSee Less
