FRIDAY The Beer Tent adult party begins at 8 pm with a local popular band, wristbands for all adult beverages, and light food.  Buy your "early bird" ticket/wristbands here  for $20.  After June 6, wristbands will be $30.

SATURDAY:  School Tours - Take a walk around your grade school and let the memories flood your mind.  Two opportunities from which to choose: 10-11:30 am or 3-4:30 pm. You'll enter the school on the Lawndale side across from the rectory and see classrooms, science lab, gym, and,  of course, your pic on the wall.  Click here to register for entry to school and be sure to bring some pals along!  

SUNDAY :  Outdoor Mass - Grab your lawn chairs/blankets or borrow some from your parents to attend the 10:30 am outdoor mass on Lawndale between the church and rectory. (If inclement weather, mass will be in church.) It promises to be a joyous celebration with reception following.

REQUEST:  The reception committee would love to have photos of your time at SJA.  Please scan any pics that you and/or your parents are willing to share and email them to me by June 1. It is so appreciated and you'll be a part of the memory books created for our beloved parish and school that will be on display Sunday morning.

CLUSTER REUNION:  Why not take advantage of this weekend to gather your classmates at someone's home or places like Maggiano's, Blue Stone, Charcoal Oven, Old Neighborhood Grill t o name a few for some extra cheer!

SPREAD THE WORD :  It's always great to come home to your St Joan of Arc parish and grade school where it all began.  Do share this email so everyone is in the know.

Your friends, classmates, neighbors, and I are so excited to see you. Please, if you have any questions, email me and I'll get right back to you!

In the SJA Spirit,
