2THE PROGRESS (Sec--ond Section}Friday, Sep'-t. 24, 1965   Father Gerald Moffat Archdiocesan CYO Director Chaplain, Carroll Club 'Carroll Club men pass acid test' t is amazing that a relatively small club, the Car- roll Club, does so much for the youth of this Archdiocese. Commissioned by His Excellency, Archbishop Connolly, in 1960 to support and pro- mote the CYO, the men of Carroll never stop. They know that the 75,000 youth of the Archdiocese will either form the dynamic Church of the future or they will be inert members slip- ping away with their interests scattered in a hun- dred different directions. Therefore, these men are dedicated to the parish-centered Youth Apostolate. They themselves are good examples of what they expect of youth. Each is a loyal parishioner, active in parish service, and yet willing to unite with men of other parishes in this cause for youth, a genuine concern of the whole Church. And Carroll Club men pass the acid test. They inspire youth by leading the way with youth- ful spirit and vigor. They meet every Monday to pursue their year-round activities. Their gigantic Seattle Invitational Indoor Track Meet in itself is an adventure which has captured the imagination of youth. Yet it involves a long grueling process of hard labor and sacrifice, the fruits of which glitter in dollars and cents aid to the youth program. At the annual CYO Dinner sponsored by the Carroll Club, these men gather together adult lead- ers of all nine CYO programs: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, Junior CDA, athletics, grade school activities, teen-ager programs, sum- mer camping and the youth adult program, and on that occasion the extensive influence of their work is unmistakably displayed as the leaders*alone crowd into the Seattle Exhibition Hall. But Catholic youth work is scarcely started. Thousands are not being reached. The men of Car- roll need more cohorts, Catholic men dedicated to youth as active or associate members. Please con- sider their cause. The Church tomorrow will de- pend on the Catholic youth we develop today. We salute the men of Carroll and express the admiration and gratitude of youth and their leaders in the Archdiocese of Seattle. Mrs. Stephen ,I. Wood President. Cmroll Club Auxiliary 'Lo k" o ,ng ahead to busy year' he Carroll Club Auxiliary is looking ahead to a busy and prosperous year. Our first project is assisting the Carroll Club in promot- ing the Invitational Indoor Track Meet to be held February 5, 1966. Another project is the Auto License Tabs Sales during the month of January, which netted our organization a sizeable amount this past year. With this money we were able to supply a few of the necessary items needed for the CYO. We also have members who volunteer their time in helping to prepare the summer camps for their annual opening. Such efforts have provided many youngsters with an en- joyable session of camping. The members of the Carroll Club Aux- iliary are to be commended for their efforts and work in promoting and aiding the CYO. The Auxiliary welcomes the wives of the Carroll Club members and other Catholic women who are interested in joining the membership. Your help is greatly appreciated by our Catholic youth. Harry Ashmore President, Carroll Club 'One of rich rewarding work' his year for our Carroll Club has been one of rich, rewarding work. We have been so ably assisted at all times by our beloved chaplain, Father Gerald Moffat, and to single out anyone else we would have to name everyone of our own in the Carroll Club, Our aim i to further the cause of the Catholic Youth Organization in the Archdio- cese of Seattle. Much of our success We owe to His Excellency, the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, and to the priests of the Archdiocese. We pray that we may continue to merit their help and their prayers. With the assistance of every member of the Carroll Club and of countless of hundred other good folk, we were able to sponsor.an invitational indoor track meet before a sellout crowd of 9,000 and an outstanding CYO Din- ner with 1,500 wonderful boys and girls and proud parents, all eagerly awaiting the pre- sentation of the various awards. This banquet was culminated by the awarding of scholar- ships to very deserving and very happy CYO Teen-Agers of the Year. Our thanks go to all who by their work and sacrifices have made this such an out- standing year. Likewise, we hope to merit your continued support in the years to come for the betterment and development of C a t h o 1 i c youth.
