Happy November! So far it seems like November has warmer weather than October...only in South Bend! Today happens to be Election Day! Why do we vote on a Tuesday in November? According to the Internet, most Americans worked in the farming industry in the 1800s when the current Election Day was set so Congress picked November for elections as a time after the harvest but before weather made travel cumbersome. Tuesday was picked so voters had a day between church services and Election Day to get to the county seat to vote! Another interesting fact from the Internet is that Election Day was a big day for drinking because buying votes with booze was a custom in the 1700-1800s. In 1758, George Washington spent his entire campaign budget on booze! While Duncan Hall does not use booze to woo anyone, the newsletters; however, come out every Tuesdays.

Former Duncan Hall AR, Robby Kiley, is getting married this Saturday at 11am in the Basilica. If you would like to join, please meet in the lobby around 10:45am with your green jackets if you have one. I imagine Robby would appreciate the support.
That's all for this week boys. Remember, voting is a right so exercise it and drinking is reserved for those 21 and older so don't break the law. Have great Zombies Week.
