St. Francis Prep Alumni gathered for the 20th Annual Florida Alumni Reunion this past
weekend. The weekend's
activities began with a Mets vs. Tigers pre-season game at Mets Spring Training Complex in Port
St. Lucie on Friday, March 1st. After the game Bill
Dunn and his wife, Joanne, graciously welcomed more than 50 alumni into
their home for cocktails and delicious home-cooked dinner. We are very grateful to Bill and Joanne for inviting us in to their home.
On Saturday, March 2nd,
Father Bill Sweeney, the Prep Chaplain, celebrated Mass at The Fox Club prior to the start of our 6:30 pm reception. 100 alumni
representing the Butler Street, North 6th Street, and Fresh Meadows eras were present. The Prep spirit at our Florida Reunion over the past nineteen years has been growing strong and this year's event may have been the best ever! We are ever so grateful to our host, Peter Callahan
’59 for his generosity to our Florida area alumni and the students of St. Francis Prep!
Congrats to the SFP staff for an enjoyable weekend reunion in Florida. Special thanks to Bill Dunn and Peter Callahan for the five star hospitality and a chance to socialize with Prep alumni . Mets beat The Tigers ."On for old St Francis"
