2023 Alumni Luncheon

If you weren't there, you missed a darn good time! On Sunday, October 15th, the Arrow Alumni celebrated another successful fall party. There were about 135 attendees representing graduates from the Classes of 1950 through 1981. Fr. Terry Kerner, administrator of St. Alphonsus-St. Clement Parish, gave a presentation, urging alumni to support the parish in order to continue to celebrate the legacy and future for the parish. Fr. Kerner led the grace for the meal. A fantastic luncheon followed. Dennis Modzelewski '69, the president of the alumni association was honored for all he does. His enthusiasm, loyalty to St. Al's and his efforts to continue the growth of the alumni association know no bounds. Dennis was presented with a locker door from the high school. Dave Katona '72 was awarded the "Arrow of the Year". Besides being the vice president, Dave wears many hats in both the alumni association and the parish. He was awarded with a plaque made from a piece of the gym bleachers. It was a great time to mingle with all the different classes present. Thank you to all the volunteers, Class Captains and alumni officers for their efforts.

RECENT REUNIONS

Class of 1972

The class of 1972 celebrated their 51st reunion on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15, 2023. On Saturday, sixteen Arrows meet at the Hub in Novi. Four of those attendees left our class after eighth grade. There was a lot of laughter as we caught up on each other’s lives and reminisced about memories of our time together in grade school and high school. On Sunday, some of us attended 10 am Mass at St. Al’s. The Alumni luncheon followed with 14 of us in attendance, sharing food and remembrances of our younger days. Because of St. Al’s, there will always be a thread that binds us together.

Class of 1973

The class of 1973 held its 50th Anniversary of Graduation on Saturday, September 16, at Stitt Hall in Dearborn Heights. Festivities began with 4:00 Mass at St. Al’s, where Fr. Greg informed us that he had been visited in a dream – by Sr. Agnes Charles!  At the hall, 79 alumni and guests from around the country - and Australia - spent the next five hours eating, drinking, reminiscing, catching up and playing movie trivia. We also strolled down memory lane at the memorabilia and Remembrance tables. We also danced the night away (well, two hours) to the tunes from Vintage Reissue – one of our classmate’s bands. The Class of 1973 is a special class. We were so blessed to spend this special evening together. Submitted by Eileen Byrnes Palazzolo ‘83

Class of 1983

The class of 1983 celebrated their 40th class reunion on October 14th. The reunion was held at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Livonia. The reunion provided an opportunity to visit with classmates as well as partake in a euchre tournament. There was a prize for the first-place winner (Kathie Trotz Tereshko) and a donation to a local charity which was chosen by the last place player (Anne Horrigan). The idea behind having the euchre tournament gave classmates and their spouses an opportunity to partner with and play against various people throughout the two-hour tournament. For an additional $5, everyone playing had an opportunity to visit with various people while switching partners and opponents throughout the tournament. Those not interested in playing had banquet tables full of finger foods and a cash bar at their disposal to eat, drink and visit. There were approximately 40 classmates and numerous spouses. Mr. Behn showed up to help us celebrate as well. Marybeth made a beautiful memorial table for those classmates who had passed. We chose to do a cash bar and finger foods to keep the cost down. There was a lot of positive feedback. It was suggested by numerous alumni that we have a 45th reunion instead of waiting for our 50th. The euchre tournament was a big hit as well.
