Bulldog Monthly April


Dear Parishioners,

A few days ago, I think I saw Mrs. Bayer blush. Some of you will remember that three years ago we celebrated Mrs. Bayer day; the 30th anniversary of Mrs. Bayer's maternal care for the students and families at Saint Gertrude. It is still hard to believe that we surprised the one "who knows everything". The children saved their allowance, hunted for quarters in couches, and did extra chores around the house, submitting their findings and earnings to the office in sealed envelopes along with an alumni survey. Judy never knew that each time we reminded the children to turn in their "alumni survey" we were really reminding them to turn in the money they'd raised to honor her. Finally Mrs. Bayer Day came: all the children arrived out of uniform, and smuggled in teddy bears hidden in their back packs. In the afternoon, we asked Mrs. Bayer to attend an assembly related to the alumni survey. She later confessed to total surprise when she was greeted with a huge banner congratulating her, a sea of teddy bears tossed up and down in the air, and a large check to the school of over three thousand dollars: enough to have her name placed on a statue of Saint Gertrude for the school's 75th anniversary. The gift was doubly fitting: not only is it right to honor Mrs. Bayer for playing a key role in almost half of the school's history, but it was she who inspired the idea of the statue. Overhearing some zealous Friars discussing a statue of Saint Dominic for the front of the school, Judy had exclaimed, "It should be a statue of Saint Gertrude!"
