Our Annual Alumni Christmas Luncheon was a wonderful success with almost 300 Arrows attending.  Classes with representation ranged from 1944 to 1981 demonstrating the breadth of our alumni spirit.  We are sure no other event held by any of the other Archdiocese of Detroit Parish Schools can boast this type of participation. We believe our Alumni Association is the most vibrant and successful, thanks to all of you and your loyalty and commitment to St. Alphonsus.  The facility, Hellenic Cultural Center, was the perfect setting. Classmates had plenty of room to mingle, renew old friendships and talk over good memories and make new ones.  The Committee and Officers were so pleased with how this year’s event turned out that we have already booked the Hellenic Center again for next year and the date is Wednesday December 13, 2017. So put it on your Calendars.

Now a little more about the luncheon:

There was plenty of happy noise, in fact people started socializing the minute they entered the hall and signed in at the welcome desk. As one walked around it was heartwarming to see all the hugs, smiles and in some cases tears of joy that were happening.

There were plenty of memorabilia and pictures on display representing our school heritage, history, class and individual pictures as well as those wonderful dedicated nuns and teachers who meant so much to all of us.

 A very successful 50/50 drawing was held with over $1,200 taken in. Six prizes of $100 each were awarded and the balance given to the Alumni Association.

All kinds of pictures were taken.  Some of the classes gathered to pose for group photos.  An historical slideshow of life at St. Alphonsus Schools was shown continuously during the luncheon.

Words just can’t describe how wonderful this luncheon is, so we hope next year’s turnout will be even greater so more of you can experience the love, spirit and fun.

The Alumni Association and Luncheon Committee appreciate all who came, those that worked on the event and the generosity of so many to the success of not just this event but to your St. Al’s AlumniAssociation.

Hope to see you next year on December 13th, 11am at the Hellenic Cultural Center.
