7/12/2018 golf-cocktails-dinner at Mundelein Seminary


Dear Classmates of the 1968 Ordination Class,

Last year when Albin Sikora, Bob Beaven and I (Bob Melcher) went
to the golf outing, the feature was the ordination class of 1967.
So many of them were there.

This year again our class picture will be greatly enlarged and on
display in the refectory. I would encourage you to sign up for the
golf outing on July 12, 2018 by calling 847-970-4816.

Golf  is free at Pine Meadow Golf Club including a cart.  Cocktails
and dinner are included and also free.  It would be a shame that
just a few of us show up.  It was so good to see all of you on
April 19th and 20th.  If you do not want to play golf, come for the
cocktails, appetizers and dinner.  Cardinal Blase J. Cupich was
there last year and said that all are welcome to attend.  Please
extend an invitation to your classmates he said.

So please take the time to make your call.  I hope to see you all
there.  There is no designation as to what table you occupy.  We can
all sit together.

  Thanks,
      Bob Melcher

Dear Classmates,

The Quigley 4th year class of 1961 is hosting an event of celebration/thanksgiving for Quigley’s greatest faculty. Eight of nine (all except McKenna who is too ill) have indicated that they will attend, i.e., Cross, Finnegan, Flaherty, Gorman, Kleeman, Nicola, Sheridan, Winters. The event will be held on Thursday, August 18, from 4-8 at the following deep south location where the plurality of the faculty resides.

Midlothian Country Club

Address: 5000 147th St, Midlothian, IL 60445

Phone: (708) 388-0596 http://www.midlothiancc.org/

A steak, chicken or vegetarian dinner will be $25 (which includes tip), payable in cash at the event and there is a cash bar. If you plan on attending (wives, significant others, etc. are welcome to attend) please email (reme@argosy.edu) or phone (847.691.2826 ) Bob Eme and indicate your dinner selection. Please indicate attendance by 8/14.

Since this was sent Bob Cross notified them he'll be unable to attend. I talked to Fr. Cross at St. Ben's rehab Center in Niles when he was recuperating from a fall. He mentioned he was living in a Senior Housing Community in Oak Park. I think it's called Brookdale. He said he celebrates Mass there on Saturdays at 3:00.

Hope this finds all your families and you well!

Peace & Prayers,

Pete

Subject: CANCELLATION OF SEPTEMBER OVERNIGHT AT MUNDELEIN

Dear class of '61:

It's with regret that we have to cancel our September overnight reunion due to lack of positive responses.

We can perhaps put an overnight together as a 50+1 event!

We are currently looking at alternatives.

Among the suggestions are:

dinner at a mid-priced, conveniently located restaurant, for whoever would like to make it;

and, a return to Ascension.

If you have any ideas, please forward them to Pete at petemazza@sbcglobal.net.

Peace and Prayers,

THE COMMITTEE

Hi Pete etal!

So sorry for not responding sooner - it's been a hectic spring!

I like the idea of a gathering at Mundelein. I don't believe I've been there since that awesome day in 1968!
Once we have a date and estimated costs, we can send an invitation to all. I'd suggest setting a price (separate for single or double rooms) a little higher than the anticipated expenses. Any surplus could go to Priests retirement or Fr. Jack. 

I'll be happy to track responses. 

Thanks for keeping us connected!

Peace
Jay
