"Wanted to reach out to the group of friends that my brother regarded with the highest esteem --- he loved each of every one of his classmates. I know in my heart that he will be with you all, pretending to be Toy Caldwell on his lax stick, strumming away to 'Can't You See" and singing the loudest he can. Raise your glasses and please sing along with him -- and CHEERS to all ---- love, Tom's sister --- And, remember, be kind to each other and always stay connected -- life is too short!! XOXO"
Timeline: 07:41h Monday 1 October 2018. Following are some pictures sent to me this weekend by my friend Ann Andrews. She was going through some old albums, (perhaps in anticipation of this Saturday's WPHS Class of '78 40th ReUnion...Woot!!!) If you still want to come, it's not too late. See ya Saturday night
Today is yesterday's pupil.
Timeline: 07:36h Friday September 28, 2018. Please note the latest as received earlier this week, from our intrepid ReUnion Committee:
"Hi, I’m hoping you’ll be able to post the following on FB and WPHS email. The committee hopes the posts can be done this Thursday (or Friday) and next Wednesday.
October 5, Friday night is our “meet and greet,” 7pm at Cooper’s Mill at Westchester Marriott, 670 White Plains Road, Tarrytown, NY. Please suggest that all locals come and enjoy each other’s company.
October 6 — 40th Reunion, 7pm Cocktail Hour, 8 - 11 Dinner and Dancing.
October 7, Sunday Brunch. Cooper’s Mill will allocate a small section of the dining area for WPHS at 9:30 am. First come, first serve. Cost $21.95 per person.
I think that covers everything.
Let me know if you can get the posts out. I look forward to seeing you! Thank you."
They serve God well who serve his creatures.
Timeline 11:43h Friday 31 August 2018. THANK YOU!!! September 01, 2018 was set as a ‘deadline’ in order to reserve a ballroom in the Westchester Marriott for the Walter Panas High ‘78 ReUnion. The Marriott wouldn’t give us the ballroom unless we could promise them enough people to fill it. YOU did it. It’s filled. We’re in. And it’s relatively early: there are still five full weeks yet until the ReUnion—October 6! Five weeks ahead...unbelievable. We’re golden:) IF you haven’t bought your ticket yet, never fear: the ballroom is expandable. We’re still selling tickets to the Show. We only ask that you don’t wait too long. It creates a last minute logjam, and we’ll need some lead-time to create your name-tags, make up the right number of table-centerpieces, order enough balloons, etcetera! DO COME!! It’s gonna be FUN!!! (And Happy Birthday Paul DePaoli!)
