Honoring John J. Downing, Class of 1979
January 30, 2009
John Downing, Brian Fahey and Harry Ford. They were the firefighters who responded to what started out as a routine blaze but quickly morphed into a much larger disaster when an explosion tore through the burning building on June 17, 2001. It was Father's Day.
We would like to invite all our former basketball players, alumni, classmates and friends of John to join with his family in honoring his memory. On January 30th, John's basketball number will be retired during a special half-time ceremony at the Prep game vs. Xaverian. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. (Generally, half-time will be at 8 p.m.)
A casual reception with light Hors d'oeuvres and beverages will follow in the cafeteria.
Please RSVP by January 22nd.
Call: (718) 423-8810, x-259 for further information or to register by telephone.
Wishing God's blessing on you and your family, and hoping to see you on January 30th!!
Bro. Robert Kent, O.S.F.
