Regreen Springfield Gala

Regreen Springfield is hosting its first fundraising gala at the Barney Estate at Forest Park. Regreen Springfield was instrumental in replanting over 4000 trees in the tornado areas as well as fruit orchards and has been instrumental in helping Springfield and its residents to regreen the city. Please consider attending this important event so they can continue their mission of regreening the city one tree at a time.

Regreen Springfield Fundraising Gala – May 20, 2015
The event begins at 6:00 pm and will conclude about 8:00 pm.

A cash bar, food and a short program will be part of the evening’s menu. Scott Coen will be our emcee for the event, Mayor Sarno is expected to attend and an ensemble from the Community Music School will provide the light entertainment.

Business casual will be the dress of the evening, and an informal atmosphere will be certain to help keep guests in good spirits. The park will be in full bloom, and the outdoor tent will be available for use by our guests, making for a great setting for the event.

Rally for #SaveCathHigh Meeting 11/20/2014 5:30 PM

Posted for and by the Committee for Cathedral Action Team.

“We were surprised to hear that the Diocese’s Spokesperson finds it “unnecessary” to meet with our group of alumni, parents, students, community leaders and neighbors. We continue to grow a strong and active group of supporters that is at the moment just shy of 2,000 and rising by the minute. This clearly demonstrates that people care about the fate of Cathedral and they want to be heard. We find it very “necessary” that they are heard. We have secured a time and a date for a meeting and we hope that the Diocese will attend whether they deem it necessary or not. We are also looking at alternative events to express to the Diocese how important of an asset Cathedral High School is to the community, the parents, the neighbors, the students, the teachers, the alumni and the entire City of Springfield.”
