Everyone,

I've been living outside of NYC and overseas since 1975, a year after graduating from MC.

Gary and I have been organizing these informal get-togethers since the 1990's since it's been impossible for me to make the standard reunions.

The next one is:

Date:  December 15, Saturday
Time:  5pm - 730pm for Drinks Only
Location:  Bourbon Street, Bell Boulevard, Queens

So far we have committed:  Mark Codd, Marcel Philippe, Ray Brun Del Re, Jim Desposito, Gary Raese, John Donodeo, Bro Jimmy Dries, Landy Eng....

and, I fully expect Ed Gonera, Kevin Anderson and Bob Sorensen to be joining us, too....and, it's 3 months in advance!

Let me know if you can make it and pass the word:  landy@driven-tv.com

Why not make it this year before we become too "young" to attend?

Best,
Landy

Someone just pointed out that I graduated in 1970 so when I moved away in 1975 it was 5 years after graduating from MC and ONE year after graduating from NYU!

When you say class of 1966-1970, do you mean the single class that graduated in 1970, or do you mean the classes that graduated in 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, and 1970?  Thanks.

We're gathering some momentum.....we just sent out an email to about a dozen brothers and teachers who overlapped at MC from 1966-70.

To answer a question posed by Bill "66.....it appears that the bulk of the classmates graduated in 1967, 68, 69 and 70.   Right now, the '70 class and the track team has the most signups.

Keep watching this space or the Facebook page or stay in touch with garyr@who.net to get a better headcount in early December.

Would appreciate if you would all pass the word!

Hi Everyone,

A few updates:

• We’re up to 25 confirmed attendees (see list below) and we have about 5 “maybes”

• Paul Brun Del Re has confirmed his flight from Michigan for the Reunion. He’ll drive back with his brother, Ray, to turn this into a nice family White Christmas in Michigan (good idea, Paul!)

• Paul has asked the whereabouts of Carl Butler who I know became a lawyer (we shouldn’t hold this against him!) and practicing in the New York area perhaps for a non-profit (should we put Carl up for Mayor on a “gas for everyone” platform?) Gerry was the last person to have seen Carl…..

• Gary has received confirmations from Susan Conners ‘70 and Gerry Losquadro ’70. They are rehearsing together for the launch of their new band (shall we name them the “Gators” or “Boomers?&rdquo

• We’ve located Gene Rizzardi ’70 who lives in the LA area and works in one of my hobby industries - film/TV. Gene worked on the Titanic film.

• My partner, John Molinari ’69 (he has his Mater Christi 114 homeroom in his email address!) would like to meet a few more ’69 grads to join the Reunion (can we all get the word out for him? what do you say, Brian O’Dowd?)

• Bill Massano has informed Larry Kelty about the reunion. Based on Larry’s email address he’s with the all –important Veterans Administration which today happens to celebrate our veterans (I didn’t know Tony Casamento was in the armed forces after school!)

• Given that our attendance is approaching 30 pax, we’re now examining the adequacy of Bourbon Street and evaluating 2 venue recommendations we’ve received

Mater Christi Informal Reunion
Dec 15, 5-730pm (5 weeks to go)
Tentative Location: Bourbon Street, Bell Boulevard, Bayside (N.B. If anyone has an “uncle” or friend in the bar business in Queens or a house big enough in Queens, just let us know!)
