 The 2013 Combined Class Reunion Celebration will be held the weekend of September 6, 7 & 8 2013 for the Classes of 1963 (Golden), 1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988 (Silver), 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008

A mailing has gone out to all reunion classes detailing the formal events planned by the school and those private activities organized by each class. If you did not receive a reservation packet, please contact alumni director Louis J. Fabro ’83 at lfabro@cdeducation.org to get a copy and share your new contact information.

Those tentative plans made by the school for the Reunion Celebration include:

Friday night, September 6: The weekend’s Main Event: The All-Classes Stag “Beer-n-Brats” campus gathering from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. in the Robert C. Walter Student Commons. As part of the festivities, attendees will also be provided tickets to that night’s Cardinal home football game at 7:30 p.m. against Eastmoor H.S, just a few feet away at Walt Plank Field. That evening class photos will be taken and Principal Jim Lower will give a “State of the School” update. Cost will be around $20 (all food and drink included).

Saturday, September 7: There will be a morning bike ride along the Alum Creek Bike Trail starting at 9:00 a.m. and a campus tour from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. An All-Classes Mass will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Mother of Mercy Chapel for alumni & guests.

Sunday, September 8: The school’s annual St. Charles Alumni Golf Outing has been incorporated into this weekend and will take place at Riviera C.C. in Dublin. Cost will run approximately $75 a player with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start. Classmates will be paired together in foursomes and arranged in back-to-back groups within the larger fraternal setting of the St. Charles alumni community. This year we are honoring Brian Gilchrist from the Class of 1983 who died on July 14th.

2013  ‘Combined’ Reunion Weekend: “Save-the-Date” Card mailed in April; Reservation packets to go out the first week in July

 

The 2013 Combined Class Reunion Celebration will be held the weekend of  September 6, 7 & 8 2013 for the Classes of 1963 (Golden), 1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988 (Silver), 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008. Currently efforts are underway to locate lost classmates and update e-mail and mailing addresses of classmates for upcoming/future reunion mailings.

 

Reunion committees met with alumni director Louis J. Fabro ’83 in January and are ready to announce tentative plans for their private class events. In April, Louis sent members of each class a postcard that includes this information as well as those activities being organized by the school. In early July he will mail out reservation packets to 2013 reunion alumni.

 

Those tentative plans made by the school for the 2013 Summer Reunion Celebration include:

 

Friday night, September 6: The weekend’s Main Event: The All-Classes Stag “Beer-n-Brats” campus gathering from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. in the Robert C. Walter Student Commons. As part of the festivities, attendees will also be provided tickets to that night’s Cardinal home football game at 7:30 p.m. against Eastmoor H.S, just a few feet away at Walt Plank Field. That evening class photos will be taken and principal Jim Lower will give a “State of the School” update. Cost will be around $20 (all food and drink included).

 

Saturday, September 7: There will be a morning bike ride along the Alum Creek Bike Trail starting at 9:00 a.m. and a campus tour from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. An All-Classes Mass will begin at 4:30 p.m. in    Mother of Mercy Chapel for alumni & guests. Afterward, many classes have planned private gatherings   for classmates and spouses/significant others at various locations across the city (see those listed by class farther below).

 

 

Sunday, September 8: The school’s annual St. Charles Alumni Golf Outing has been incorporated into this weekend and will take place at Riviera C.C. in Dublin. Cost will run approximately $75 a player with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start. Classmates will be paired together in foursomes and arranged in back-to-back groups within the larger fraternal setting of the St. Charles alumni community. With golf officially built into the weekend, classes need not worry about scheduling it on their own. This will also provide those who have to work Friday — or can’t make it in from out of town until Friday night — an opportunity to participate in an additional weekend event. It is also perfectly fine if an individual class wishes to get together for golf any other time like Friday or Saturday morning.

 

Many classes have tentatively planned private weekend class functions in addition to the formal reunion activities sponsored by St. Charles.  These include:

 

The Class of 1963: Currently there are no plans for any private class activities following Saturday’s Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel. Due to personal scheduling conflicts, the class will hold its private class activities the following weekend.

 

The Class of 1968: Members will hold a private dinner at a classmate’s home on Saturday night.

 

The Class of 1973:  Currently there are no plans for any private class activities following Saturday’s Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel.

 

The Class of 1978:  On Saturday, classmates will be invited to gather starting at noon at the tailgate of a classmate prior to the Ohio State football game vs. the San Diego State Aztecs. Later that night, following the Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel, the class will meet at the rectory of   St. Catharine’s Church at 6:00 p.m. for a cook-out hosted by (Fr) Mike Lumpe.

 

The Class of 1983: Following Saturday’s Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel, classmates and their spouses/significant others will meet for dinner at Lindey’s Restaurant in German Village.

 

The Class of 1988: Following Saturday’s Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel, classmates and their spouses/significant others will meet at Easton Towne Center starting around 7:30 p.m. for a Class Pub Crawl.

The Class of 1998: Following Saturday’s Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel, classmates and their spouses/significant others will gather informally at Bar Louie in the Arena District starting at 7:00 p.m.

 

The Class of 2003: Following Saturday’s Campus Tour and All-Classes Mass in Mother of Mercy Chapel, classmates and their spouses/significant others will gather informally for cocktails and dinner at Plank’s Café (Parsons Avenue) on the restaurant’s lower level starting at 7:00 p.m.

As mentioned previously, final details and reservation information for the September 6-8 reunion weekend events will follow in a July mailing. In the meantime, you are invited to contact alumni director Louis J. Fabro ’83 with questions or to get in touch with your class’s organizational committee.
