Loyola University Chicago

Department of English


You are invited to Dr. Frank Fennell's retirement party!

On Monday, April 13, the Department of English is hosting a retirement party for Frank Fennell, marking the last semester of his 47 years of service to Loyola students.

Because of his many ties and involvements outside the department, we are reaching out to faculty and staff throughout the college. We understand how busy you are at this time of year and that you may well not be able to come. But if it is possible for you, please know that you will be most welcome. If you are aware of a colleague who would like to attend this reception, please forward this invitation.

One thing Frank is adamant about: no gifts, please. Your presence is gift enough. When I pressed him to name an organization to which individuals could contribute in lieu of a gift, he suggested Save the Children at www.savethechildren.org. (If you would like to do this, please contact the organization directly.)

We hope you can join us on April 13. The party will be in the Palm Court, 4th floor of the Mundelein Center, from 5 to 7 p.m. For planning purposes, it would be helpful if you could please RSVP to Brenda Jervier by Wednesday, April 8 at bjervie@luc.edu.
