Oh the weather outside was frightful!!

 The 2017 Alumni Christmas Party was held on Wednesday Dec. 13, 2017.  It was a great success regardless of the weatherman. Over 180 attendees braved the snow and ice to join in celebration of our alma mater. We were glad we hired a valet service. Hope we saved a few slips and falls. We will appreciate feedback on their service.
We were blessed by the presence of the St. Alphonsus-St. Clements priests Father Linus Kinyua, and Father Aaron DePeyster. Hopefully their blessing kept us safe on the trek home. Chester Lawrence '52 and member of the parish council made a request for mass attendance and contributions to the parish and reported some immediate results. Hope to see you also in the pews.
We made some special recognition to Don Summers '49 for his past support of the school, the class of '42 who raised funds during WWII for the flag pole and a commemorative plaque, and a recognition of our own Karen ( Cardelli '69) Andrusiak's selection as the Rose Award Volunteer of the year for Wayne County.
Compliments to the Chef; the food was excellent!  Finished off with cake and ice cream.
We had eight winners for the raffle who were happy campers. Thanks to ticket sellers for their salesmanship.
It goes without saying that a big thanks to our Board Members and our peeps who always come out to do the heavy lifting, especially all who helped break down the exhibits.
It was a pleasure seeing the old and the new alumni join in this wonderful event even in our winter wonderland. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and join us next year.

The City of Dearborn's 38th annual Homecoming festival took place Aug. 4- 6, 2017, at Ford Field Park. In addition to three days of live music, the festival featured great food, free and affordable family activities, car cruise, high school reunions, a carnival, and spectacular fireworks displays on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Despite cloudy skies, no rain fell on the Arrows banner at the Dearborn Homecoming.  Even if it had, it wouldn't have been able to dampen the spirit of the alumni who attended. From the oldest class, 1945 to the youngest, 1993, the laughter and camaraderie could be felt by all.
