Biographical Update: Regardless of your ability to attend the 2018 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/2018-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.

 

Here are the current plans for the “Combined Weekend” announced by Alumni Director Louis J. Fabro ’83:

 

Friday night, August 31st: The weekend’s Main Event: The All-Classes Stag “Beer-n-Brats” STAG gathering from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. in the Robert C. Walter Student Commons. The cost is $25 per person which includes refreshments and a picnic-style brats and burger dinner buffet. Around 7:00 p.m., Principal Jim Lower will give a “State of the School” update and class photos will be taken directly afterward from 7:30-7:50 p.m. The Cardinal varsity football team plays AWAY this evening, so there will be no game at Walt Plank Field.

Note: The “STAG” is ALUMNI ONLY, NO GUESTS. However, WIVES/GIRLFRIENDS are welcome and encouraged to attend all class functions Saturday (see those just below).

 

 

 

                 

 

 

Saturday, September 1st: There will be a morning family bike ride along the Alum Creek Bike Trail starting at 9:00 a.m. Those interested in participating will meet in the school’s Campus Theater parking lot beside the “West Campus” brick gateway by 8:45 a.m. Thanks to the generosity of one of our alumni, we are able to provide a bicycle to any out-of-town traveler who wishes to participate in the group ride (Contact alumni director Louis J. Fabro ’83 directly at [email protected]  if you would like to take advantage of this lender program.).
