Saturday, April 23, 2016
By now, you’ve heard that John and AJ Eccles will be retiring this summer. The College community is planning to send them off in style and President Garren has proclaimed Saturday, April 23 the Day of Eccles. All members of the LC family are invited to join in on this celebration of “all things Eccles” either in-person here at the College or via the College web site.
The day’s festivities will feature many of John and AJ’s favorite things – coffee in the morning and ice cream in the afternoon; Hornet Baseball, Track & Field, and Lacrosse matches; a picnic on the Dell; and an Eccles Roast to cap off the day – well, perhaps that last one might not be a favorite thing, but it will certainly be fun.
If you plan to attend, click here to let us know so we can estimate the crowds and cook enough food for the picnic. If you can’t make it to campus – heavy sigh – no worries, this web page also allows for comments and reflections – so please be sure to share your fondest memories and maybe even some photos of your time with John and AJ here at LC. We’re happy to hear of the embarrassing moments as well and we’d really like to see those photos, so please share away. Hope to see you on Saturday, April 23 for the Day of Eccles.
We’ll update this page as details of the celebration are finalized, so keep in touch! Follow LC on Facebook and Twitter to hear the latest! Read about the new Eccles Family Scholarship Fund.
And, as John always says – It’s a great day to be a Hornet!
