Father & Son Banquet 2015
What a night! The Father & Son Banquet is a highlight of the Fathers’ Club activity calendar, and this year was no exception. Priory dads enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to spend time with our son(s) and gain insight from speaker Eric Greitens, Navy Seal and founder of The Mission Continues.
Eric shared his story as a young man moved to make a difference, his challenges and experiences bringing purpose through serving others. Each of our boys received a signed copy of Eric’s book “The Warrior’s Heart,” which tells his journey from his roots in St. Louis to places around the world that influenced his future. (His newest book, titled “Resilience,” is available now!)
Kudos to the event chair, Jim O’Brien, and co-chair, Frank Van Bree, for their hard work to pull off the largest attended banquet of record! Special thanks to Vice-President Doug Drysdale, Director of Development Emily Kuryla, and Xanadu and Volunteer Coordinator Mary Rhodes for their support of all the details needed to make the night a memorable one.
