1 May Social Update

Glad to see those classmates that showed up on 1 May at Carrigan's Public House on Morris Avenue in downtown Birmingham.  The venue seems to fit our needs and desires: non-smoking, central location in town, adequate free parking, pay as you go, etc.
​There were 29 classmates and spouses that dropped by throughout the evening.
​So save the date for the next event.  Have it scheduled for Tuesday, 7 August.
​I'll be sending out more information via e-mail.
​Hope to see you in August.

We had an informal get-together on 1 February at Gabriel's Sports Bar and Cafe in Hoover;  27 Classmates and spouses attended.  Pictures of some of those attending are posted in the Recent Gatherings 2018 photo album.

​We are planning on having another very informal, pay-as-you-go event, on 1 May at a place TBD, but save the date and look for more info.

Take Time

This is a poem that Monsignor Houck read at our 20th reunion

Take time to think – It is the source of all power
Take time to play-It is the source of perpetual youth
Take time to read – It is the foundation of all wisdom
Take time to pray-It is the greatest power on earth
Take time to love and be loved-It is God’s greatest gift
Take time to be friendly-It is the road to happiness
Take time to laugh-It is the music of the soul
Take time to dream-It is what the future is made of
