Big Day Coming

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you next Sunday.  Just to recap the main event is at 4:00 PM at Patsy's Restaurant 332 Bergen Blvd in Fairview.  The cost is $40 per person and the only credit card they take is American Express, so if you have left home without it bring some cash.

That is not all though,  If you are up for more please attend the 11:00 AM Mass at St. John's (remember that church on Walker street and Anderson avenue that was kind of near the school).  We should be able to tour the school building after the Mass and if you are up for it we will do a walking tour of Fairview and Cliffside before the big event.  I would like us to get pictures in front of the original homes of anybody who makes it.  That might be too ambitious, but we will see.  Lunch will be catch as catch can.  I'm thinking White Castle.

I'll be staying at the Marriot in Edgewater and am opening to getting together for breakfast, with anybody who wants to make a day of it. Email me at and I will send you my phone number.

No pressure here or maybe a little.  It would be great if everybody, whether you can make the reunion or not would send a donation to

Franciscan Community Development Center
239 Anderson Avenue
PO Box 89
Cliffside Park NJ 07010

Mention our class. Even a token amount would be a great show of spirit, but if you are the type of person that can write a large check, this seems to be a really good cause.  The Sisters who are living in the old convent are doing the type of work that Father McTague used to do.

See you soon.
