In August, Fr. Tony Azzarto, S.J. and the Alumni Spirituality Committee will host two sendoff events for the Class of 2012 as they prepare to head off to college. First, on August 7, head out to Yogi Berra Stadium in Montclair to see the New Jersey Jackals host the Worcester Tornadoes in a 7 p.m. start. We'll be meeting outside at 6:30. Then on August 16, come home to Grand & Warren once more for a cookout in the courtyard from 6 to 8 p.m. All are welcome at both events, as we bid farewell to Prep's newest alumni and wish them the best in their new journeys.
Celeste Holm left an unforgettable mark in the annals of Broadway and Hollywood alike over a span of 70 years, garnering an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1947. She also left her mark at Grand & Warren, as she and husband Frank Basile helped to get the 144 Grand Gala off the ground in its formative years with their support of the nascent event. Ms. Holm died Sunday at her home in Manhattan, at age 95, and Prep remains grateful for her friendship.
Join us for a celebration 50 years in the making! The Class of 1962 will come "home" to Prep for their 50th Reunion Weekend, Friday through Sunday, October 19-21, 2012. Please note that this date is different from the one given on the back cover of Prep Magazine. Due to the production schedule Prep Magazine included a tentative date.
