Sunday, September 3rd: There are no official activities scheduled on this date by the school. The school’s annual St. Charles Alumni Golf Outing had been incorporated into the reunion weekend in recent years, but has been moved to later in the month (September 24th) this year.

 Biographical Update: Regardless of your ability to attend the 2017 Combined Class Reunion Celebration, we hope you will provide us an update to share with others. A special online web address (also accessed from the Online Main RSVP page) has been created at www.stcharlesprep.org/event/2017-class-reunion-update  to use to complete this update conveniently and electronically. A hard-copy of the form and its questions are included in this mailing. You can also return the forms in the envelope provided or e-mail them to alumni director Louis J. Fabro ’83 at [email protected]. Note: Louis would be most grateful and selfishly appreciate electronic responses as it takes a LONG time to decipher handwriting, compose lists into sentences and re-type 12 classes worth of hand-written forms.
