ST.VINCENT’S BOYS’ – ST. MALACHY’S MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI NEWS
Thank you to all the alumni who attended the 2011 alumni dinner was held on Friday evening, June 12 at the former Knight’s of Columbus building on Coburg Street with 185 alumni in attendance.
The evening began with a ‘Wine & Cheese’ reception at St. Malachy’s Memorial High School from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM. This was also an opportunity for alumni to have a guided tour of the renovations and expansions which have taken place at the school. With a present student population of 1100 the expansions were certainly essential and the tour was a big hit with the alumni who had not seen the expansions.
The 2011 Annual Alumni Dinner began with a reception at 6:00 and the dinner at 7:00. One of the highlights was the fund raising activity of the Class of 1981. Led by Dr. Mike Simon, the class raised almost $9,000 which was given to members of the graduating class of 2011. Sixteen names were drawn and the only requirement was that a graduating student had to be present at the dinner to win. In total, Alumni gave more than $22,000 to assist graduating students with their further education.
The Class of ’81 had a very full weekend. With class members coming from as far away as Florida and the U.S. mid-west their activities began on Thursday evening with a gathering at Shooters in West Saint John. A nice feature of this evening was the invitation extended to faculty to attend. Present were: Bill (Uncle Willy) Coffey; Terry Comeau: Yves Daigle; Neil White & Don Smith. A great time was had by all. The class attended the alumni dinner on Friday night and then had a golf tournament on Saturday.
ALUMNI EXECUTIVE: Led by Dr. Marc Nicholson (Class of 94’), plans are well advanced for alumni activities for 2012:
