We are now into the season of summer and with it, vacation planning, if not already completed, is being done in full force. What are we doing with these lazy, hazy days and beautiful starlit nights? Here in New Jersey, walking the Boardwalks, visiting the Casino Pier, dipping feet into the ocean, surf casting at twilight- these are just a few of the many things our state has to offer during the warm summer months. And this year, for the first time, Saint Dominic Academy is embracing a “gift of the Garden State” and hosting a summer event for families, alumnae, and friends of SDA.
The place to be this summer opened in 1870, only 8 years before Saint Dominic Academy opened its doors. Whether you’re a fan of horse racing or not, there is no doubt that a day at Monmouth Park is an experience that every New Jerseyean has to undertake at least once in his or her life. So, if you have not yet come down to the track, make your inaugural visit this summer as part of our SDA Day at the Races. If you and Monmouth Park are “old buddies”, then please come and celebrate with us this summer. (And, if you are a horse racing expert; find me and help me place my bets please!)
On Sunday, July 23rd, we will host our First Annual SDA Day at the Races at Monmouth Park! We will celebrate this day with family and friends; children are welcome. There will be bounce houses, clowns, pony rides, face painting and a playground for the future generation of SDA little girls (and their brothers too of course!) Food is always available for purchase at the Park, or you can pack a cooler and picnic with friends as the ponies speed by! Our goal for the day is a simple one; to come together and enjoy each other’s company in this historic and picturesque New Jersey setting.
The SDA Alumnae Association is organizing this event on behalf of the school. The cost is $15.00 and children 18 and under are free. For more information, you can visit the Alumnae section of the Saint Dominic Academy website. I will look forward to seeing you in a month at Monmouth Park racetrack, so please, save the date on your summer calendars and join us for some old fashioned NJ fun this July!
