There are always limits, and there are always opportunities. The ones we rehearse and focus on are the ones that shape our attitude and our actions.

Our 40th reunion took place on July 15th, 2017 and was a big success!    I'd like to thank Karen Lanczak Leonardi for taking the initiative in organizing the reunion.  Other reunion committee members included Chuck Brennan and Arlene Galanda Kurharchik. Thanks to all who attended. We missed those of you who could not make it, but hope to see you at the next one.

I've always wanted to read this sign at the intersection of Bennett and Kelley Street, but could never see it from across the street so I finally took a picture of it!

I won this cool little bus full of candy and a Gertrude Hawk chocolate computer too.  Now I can say this is an award-winning website!

One of the most fun parts of this website is the Blog because you get to participate.

Looking for the Donkey Basketball pictures?

Karen loaned me a 1976 yearbook and many of our classmates figured prominently in a play that year.  None more so than Doc!

You can see a copy of the news clipping and color photo of our 1988 reunion.  It takes a little time to download, but it's worth the effort and the color photo is suitable for printing.   I posted the 22-page memory book we got at the 1988 reunion entitled, " Class of '77 Where are You Now?"

Here is our 8th grade graduation photo from 1973.  Twenty of the Twenty-Nine 8th grade graduates of St. John's in Luzerne went on the graduate from Bishop O'Reilly.

This is a list of our deceased class members. May they rest in peace.

Here are some prom pictures from Karen.
