Summer has arrived in Boston, and with it a variety of fabulous things to see and do…including attending the Skal Monthly Meeting in July at the EMC Club at Fenway Park!
Fenway Park is more than baseball! Amid it’s bricks and beams, Fenway Park has unique modern facilities for meetings and celebrations. Join us on July 21st in the EMC Club – one of Boston’s premier event spaces. Perched just above home plate with breathtaking views of the field and all that is Fenway, this is luxury in a ball park setting!
At this meeting, we will also be awarding the 2011 Keith Staples Scholarship to Amanda Soucy, a student currently in the Hospitality program at the University of New Hampshire, as well as an employee at the Hotel Marlowe. Thank you Skalleague Rick Collangelo for encouraging her to apply!
We are working hard to raise funds to permanently endow the scholarship fund….so your donations of items for the raffle, as well as your purchase of raffle tickets, is greatly appreciated!
Almost 60 Skaleagues and their guests headed south for Skal yesterday. The Preservation Society of Newport, the Newport Convention & Visitors Bureau and Blackstone Caterers did a great job making us feel welcome in Newport.
Despite the gloomy weather we’ve had all week, Rosecliff was still remarkable….and in fact, we even saw a bit of sun before the lunch was over.
Thanks once again to those businesses who donated items for the Raffle. The proceeds benefit the Keith Staples Scholarship Fund and we’re well on our way to making the Fund self sustainable thanks to the generosity of all who participate. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to donate items this year.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for June 16 – Skal will be at The Hampshire House. Skaleague Tom Kershaw will be hosting us….and we’ll actually have the reception on one floor and the lunch on another due to our size!

- Highland Lake Inn
- Spirit Cruises
- Upstairs on the Square
- New England Fast Ferry
- JFK Library and Museum
