6/30/13 A bowling party at Earl Anthony's in Dublin showed us just who has it and who doesn't (me). Geoff Smyth and his son wowed the crowd with their curve balls that landed more strikes than anyone! Joe Bennett did pretty well for himself, too. Lorraine Cronin, Ray Domerge & Dan McCarthy cheered and Dan's son threw a few balls for Janice Mattrocce when she took a break from her very solid game. Laura Flynn had a respectable game with a strike or two herself. Mike Colen gave it his all, and entertained the crowd with his wit. After the game, the group retired to Frankie, Johnny & Luigi's for some very delectable pizza. A rematch will be scheduled soon.

4/20/13 The famous 420! We met at Janice Mattrocce's house for a potluck planning session, and had a great and productive time! There were about a dozen of us and we socialized in Janice's sunny backyard patio before we got down to business in the dining room. We spent a lot of time going through the class list and strategizing about how to find people. Along the way, the stories abounded and there was much laughter and tears (from the laughing, not from crying). The girls got to hear lots of Monsignor Moriarty stories, too, from our former altar boys. A good time was had by all! Attendees: Joe Bennett, Glenn Jensen, Vic & Barbara Laconsay, Geoff Smyth, Jean O'Connor, Maryann Fried, Susan Simmons, Janice Mattrocce & Lorraine Cronin.

We caught up on life and had a very enjoyable time.
