Lauralton Night at Harbor Yard a huge success

 

On a Saturday evening in early April, nearly 200 parents, students, faculty, staff, alumnae, family and friends came out to support Lauralton and watch the Sound Tigers vs. Connecticut Whale ice hockey game at Bridgeport’s Harbor Yard arena. Lauralton Hall athletes, the Advanced Vocal Ensemble and faculty member Jill Waldron were part of the opening ceremonies, proudly holding the American flag during the National Anthem and during the moment of silence for Sandy Hook.

 

“It was an honor to be part of the Lauralton community that held the flag and paid tribute to the lives that were lost at Sandy Hook on that tragic day,” said Brenna Donahue, ’14, a member of the Advanced Vocal Ensemble. Prior to the game, guests enjoyed a private reception and the flag bearers received a training session on how to properly hold the American flag and how to move on the ice. (Don’t walk…shuffle!). The Advanced Vocal Ensemble also performed between the first and second periods. Standing in a skybox they sang “Seasons of Love from Rent and “Joyful Joyful” from Sister Act. “It was a thrill to sing in the arena and see ourselves on the jumbotron,” continued Brenna. “It was also a great night to spend time with our friends, enjoy a hockey game and show our school spirit!”

 

Alex Torres, ’13 was the lucky student winner of the Zamboni ride. “It was heartwarming to see so many people supporting Lauralton Hall and our students,” said Director of Enrollment Management, Kathleen Shine. “It was such a fun night and such a great success that we are already talking about planning an even bigger outing for next year. There is also talk of a Bluefish baseball event for the summer. I am so proud of our talented and dedicated students. They all represented Lauralton with such spirit and maturity. Bravo to our girls!”
