Catering Highlights – November 2010

May represents one of the busiest months of the school year. Our final auction of the year was held at Sacred Heart Academy in St. Charles. Graduation and Sports parties start up this time of the year, with events being held at Kennedy Catholic High School, St. Louis University High School, Immacolata, St. Katharine Drexel, Villa Duchesne, Marian Middle School, Chaminade Prep, St. Elizabeth Academy, Bishop DuBourg and St. Louis Priory. St. Joseph’s Academy hosted a Grandparents luncheon. Nestle Purina Farms hosted luncheons for their dog shows. St. Louis Priory hosted a Baseball Field dedication.

June continues the trend of graduation and Alumni parties and year-end special events. Purina Farms was host to several Dog Shows. Our annual company picnic for employees of Food Service Consultants was held at Nestle Purina Farms in Gray Summit. We had several special events this month. Logan College hosted their Homecoming weekend. It was the school’s 75th anniversary. They held several events and we were chosen to serve the BBQ with 1,000 guests in attendance. The following evening we served their happy hour after the doctors and spouses had a long day of seminars and meetings. Ursuline Academy hosted their Alumni Luncheon.

July slows down somewhat and allows us the opportunity to re-group and start to work on new menus and ideas for the 2010 – 2011 school year. We also had the opportunity to serve the Maggie Welby Golf Tournament.

August, as always seems to come upon us so quickly. It seems as if the school year has just ended and here we go again. With each new school year, brings our new school accounts. Catholic Education host- ed its annual Teachers Orientation at the Catholic Education Campus, followed by Direction Days at St. Louis University High. Missouri Baptist University kicks off their school year with a Back to School weekend of events and the Presidents Reception. Logan College held their graduation celebration in the Purser Center. St. Louis Priory hosted their back to school dinner with an outside BBQ. The next couple of weeks teachers started making their way back to school so we pro- vided lunches for the teachers. With so many to list I don’t want to for- get anybody. We also served Incarnate Word Academy’s New Parent Dinner. Visitation Academy hosted their Crescent Dinner which welcomes new students and parents. Nestle Purina held their company’s Family Days at the new Event Center at Nestle Purina Farms. They had a beautiful day for this event. Their 4,000 guests enjoyed a BBQ luncheon that we provided. They also had rides, carnival games and other items for the employees and families to enjoy.

September started off with a wedding reception in Logan College’s Purser Center. Nestle Purina Farms hosted the GSLVMA BBQ which recognizes the Veterinarians in the area. Ursuline Academy hosted their Freshman Induction Ceremony. St. Joseph’s Academy hosted their Celestine Dinner. In September we also start the beginning process of the Fall Auction Season with schools such as St. Dominic High, DeSmet, Villa Duchesne, St. Clare of Assisi and Bishop DuBourg. Villa Duchesne also hosted their annual Grandparents Breakfast and Mass on a Sunday morning. St. Louis University High School started their reunion dinners with the class of 1955 and 1980.

As we head into our busy time of the year we always want to thank the individuals at their respected schools for all their support throughout this time of the year.
