Pacelli Booster Club to host Golf Day and Hall of Fame Banquet on June 16

By Jim Parlin, Pacelli Booster Club

The Pacelli Booster Club was founded as an organization whose purpose is to support athletic and extracurricular activities at Pacelli High School. Our mission statement reads: “The Pacelli Booster Club’s mission is to foster an environment that inspires athletes, students, coaches, parents, and the community to collectively create a positive and spirited atmosphere for all athletic, and extracurricular programs.”

The hard work of many volunteers over the years has served to promote strong programs for the benefit of our Pacelli students. In addition to subsidizing athletic expenses, the club has helped with expenses for the theater program, music program, yearbook, the middle school annual trip to Eagle Bluff, after prom party, and many other activities that help to enhance the student experience at Pacelli High School.   

The Pacelli Golf Day, which will take place at Meadow Greens Golf Course on June 16, has been our most important fundraiser. This year marks the 38th year in which this event has been sponsored by the Pacelli Booster Club. In 2007 the Pacelli Booster Club added a Hall of Fame Banquet in the evening as a part of this annual event. It is an opportunity to recognize former athletes and coaches who made significant contributions to the history of Pacelli athletics. This year’s inductees include, Bill Goblirsch, Class of 1962, Don Wistrcill, 1968, Jim Parlin 1972, Dave Regner 1975, Jim Headington 1976, and Caron Rathke 1978. In addition to these individuals we are also recognizing the members of the 1967 State Champion Baseball team (50th  anniversary) and the 1992 state champion basketball team (25th anniversary).

Anyone interested in joining us in our Pacelli Golf Day event or attending the Hall of Fame banquet is encouraged to sign up. Information can be found on the Pacelli Schools website at pacellischools.org or by calling the Pacelli office at 507- 437-3278. Hope you can join us on June 16.
