This week we continued our service with Artisans and I already see the impact it is having on my mentee, Bud and me. I walked in to the Artisans building and I could tell my excitement to hang out was a mutual feeling between Bud and I. This is my first opportunity working with disabled adults, as most of my service has been with kids, and I am really enjoying it. The highlight of my time with Bud this week was seeing how he really cares for people. As we continued to talk and hangout throughout our time, he asked individually how each of my family members had been since I had last seen him and he genuinely cares how I am doing. This experience has been great so far and I’m excited to get even closer to Bud.
This was also a big week for the Knights as we had our Oksoberfest event. The event was a hit! Students from all classes came to enjoy the waterdie tournament and learn more about alcohol safety. It was great to see a lot of the Setons come and support the event too. One of the most exciting parts of the event is seeing the freshman that showed up who were already excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Knights and Setons organization. We are going to have a great class following us next year.
