2016 Florida Gathering a huge success.
We had another very successful Mon Valley Gathering. Our annual event was not quite as crowded this year, so it was a lot easier to get around and talk to everyone. MHS Class of 1959 had the most classmates in attendance.
In the picture is: Ed Nicholanco, Mary Jane Shepherd (Moore) Linda Cox (Louttit) Leona Cole (Marracini) Sarah Jane Christopher (Reinhardt) Kenny Cole, Stephen Lengyel. Since Leona is in charge of all our class reunions, this was the first reunion she was actually able to sit down and just relax!
Ed wears his MHS letter sweater to all reunions. He showed me two holes in his beloved sweater, so not only are we getting old, his sweater is too!
In the second picture was the highlight of the reunion for me. This is my cousin, Cathy Jupin (Cain) from Belle Vernon and her husband George Jupin from Charleroi. I have only met this cousin one time and my sister, Martha Ann, had never met Cathy. We spent a lot of time “catching up” and that is why I didn’t have many pictures to share.
I hope some of you will try to attend next year. It will be held at the same location, Cody’s Original Roadhouse in Clearwater, FL. It is always the last Saturday in February. Next year the date is: Saturday, February 25th. Cody’s reserves the restaurant just for our reunion from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Hope to see some of you there next year.
Take care. Sarah
