Paver Walkway Dedicated at Wellness Center


On Saturday, September 22, 2012, over 100 alumnae/i and friends of The College of New Rochelle came together for the Paver Walkway Dedication and Ceremony.

The CNR community participated in this special ceremony to honor and remember their loved ones, CNR friends, and CNR professors. The engraved 12” x 12” pavers were placed adjacent to the Ralph & Mary Fischer Bell Contemplation Garden at The Wellness Center.

The event began with Nancy Harkins, Alumnae/i Board 2nd Vice President, welcoming the community and sharing a brief history of the paver project which began as an idea from the Alumnae/i Association in 2008.

Nancy introduced President Judith Huntington who shared her thoughts on the history of the project and cited moving sentiments from an alumna in regards to the paver walkway.

President Huntington thanked all of those who purchased pavers to help make the walkway so special and meaningful to us. She also expressed her gratitude to the Alumnae/i Board for "implementing this project in CNR’s behalf – each paver is a poignant reminder of the abundance of life in our CNR family."

Father Joe concluded the ceremony with a beautiful blessing of the pavers. Alumnae/i and friends then celebrated the day with a reception in the Wellness Center adjacent to the paver walkway.
