Two student organizations at Hilbert College, Enactus and Rotaract, held a dedication ceremony for “Mother Colette’s Crosswalk”. This project brought new flowers, plants, and landscaping to the area around Hilbert’s St. Clare Chapel.
Special thanks to the generous support of Kevin Monaco ’01 Proprietor of Monaco Enterprises Of WNY, Inc., for donating the plants & materials!
Hilbert alum Tom Doody ’97 recently made a trip to China with his wife, Tracy. They made visits to both Shanghai and Beijing. During their adventures, they toured many Buddhist temples and places of historical significance, including Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. As you can see in the photos below, Tom brought Hilbert with him!
“It was an amazing experience,” Tom said. “The wall is remarkably steep in some places and a tremendously impressive structure. I was happy to represent Hilbert proudly!”
