KULPMONT — Over 40 alumni from the 1973 graduating class of Our Lady of Lourdes (OLOL) Regional High School met at The Warehouse Banquet Hall, Kulpmont, on Saturday, Sept. 1.

Class President Dave Shinskie welcomed fellow classmates and guests and presented attendees with specially monogrammed lanyards and stemless wine glasses with the OLOL logo embossed on it. He thanked this year’s steering committee, including Nancy McBride, Carl Maus, Kathy Sosnoski, Sue Ann Weisenfluh, and Helen Maureen “Steiny” McMenamin and the many friends who made donations to the cause.

Maria Foris donated flowers and bud vases for the tables and coordinated the remembrance table for deceased classmates and faculty members.

Scicchitano’s Catering provided a meal of American and Italian cuisine with desserts and beverages donated by reunion committee persons Sosnoski, Weisenfluh and McMenamin. The blessing before meal was offered by graduate member Sister Mary Ann Bednar, current Principal at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School. The names of deceased class members were posted and recited after a reflective prayer by Sister Mary Ann.

Announcements, raffles, and prize drawings donated by Maria Foris, Linda Turlis and “Steiny” McMenamin and organized by Carl Maus and Shinskie highlighted the evening.

Proceeds will benefit OLOL and future reunion costs. A class photo was taken by Harry Deitz and musical entertainment was provided by Power House Sound.
