Banquet is a special time of year for everyone involved with Cathedral Home. It's the biggest event of our year, and involves everyone from donors to community members, youth workers to directors, and most importantly, residents and alumni. It's a celebration for said residents and alumni, a positive reflection of the past year, and an opportunity to reward the hard work displayed by our youth.
Each of our youth dress in formal attire while all in attendance enjoy a delicious meal. During this time, our youth receive awards for their hard work. Some of these awards include: Rookie of the Year, Peer Leader, and Most Improved Student. Also,scholarships for college or trade schools are awarded to our alumni. For more coverage on this year's banquet, please check out our next issue of the Open Door in June.

The event took place on the future location of the arena, behind the Mae Olson Education Center on CHC’s main campus. Nancy F. Anderson, author, historian, and friend of the late Ezra Nichols, was the guest speaker at the event. An indoor horse arena will allow the youth at CHC to participate in EAP activities year-round. It will provide an area for 20 or more youth and staff to ride horses and facilitate therapeutic group activities when outdoor elements are harsh.
