The tour has won wide acclaim for being well organized and scenic with outstanding SAGs (support and gear.) “This is the 26th year for this great event. It appeals to casual family riders as well as serious bicyclists and covers a number of beautiful, well-supported routes,” said Development and Alumni Relations Manager Emily Hutsell, organizer of the event. “Best of all, money raised from the hundreds of participants go to scholarships for our students, many of whom are completely reliant on Ancilla’s generous financial aid.”

By Chad Kebrdle DONALDSON – For the second time in 11 months, a formidable crowd of Ancilla College supporters converged to witness a blessing ceremony. In August 2015, it was to witness the Most Reverend Bishop Kevin Rhoades bless the first residence hall. On July 18, 2016, the ceremony officially opened the private college’s second residence hall and blessed the dining commons, which was completed in December. Before the blessing, the first two buildings’ names were announced. The first residence hall was named Hardesty Hall after James Hardesty who, even posthumously, has been a major donor to the college. On hand to give comment was his nephew and Ancilla board of trustees’ member, Chuck Hardesty. “I know my uncle is looking down and smiling,” Hardesty said.
