REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
Dear Florida Graduates and Friends of the Prep,
Greetings and best wishes and a Happy New Year from your Alma Mater! On Friday, March 6th, 2015, beginning at 6:30 p.m., we will celebrate our 21st Annual St. Francis Prep Florida Reunion. This year we will be making a return trip to the East Coast of Florida.
So it is with great pleasure that I invite you and a guest to this year’s reunion on behalf of our gracious and very generous host, Peter Callahan ’59, who will greet us at The Fox Club in Palm City (which is Peter’s own Club—see the attached directions). Since we will be using the “first-come, first-served” format, if you are interested in attending the reunion, I am asking you to call ASAP, Nancy DeStefano at 718-423-8810 ext. 259. And please remember, this reception is on Friday this year.
We have also secured a limited number of tickets (30) for the Mets vs. Braves game on Saturday, March 7th at 1:00 PM at Mets Spring Training Complex, 525 NW Peacock Blvd in Port St. Lucie. You will also need to call us for these tickets (priced at $14 each--first-come, first-served) and you can either use a credit card when you call or send a check after you have ordered. After the Met game on Saturday, Bill directions below.)
We have had a good representation of alumni from Butler Street, North 6th Street, and Fresh Meadows, attending our Florida Reunion over the past nineteen years, so we hope to see you this year. You may find a classmate you didn’t know moved to the Sunshine State!
Wishing God’s blessing on you and your family, and hoping to see you on March 6th at The Fox Club or on March 7th at the Met game and the Dunn’s!
Brother Robert Kent, O.S.F., Alumni Director
