Class of 1962 enjoys Reunion Weekend and pledges over $324,000 to benefit Prep
The Class of 1962 gathered for an activity-filled reunion weekend, beginning with a golf outing at Great River Golf Club and welcome reception at the Patterson Club on Friday, and a breakfast, tours and presentation at Prep on Saturday morning. The classmates and guests attended Satuday evening Mass at Egan Chapel with: principal celebrant Fr. John Hanwell, S.J., president; concelebrants Fathers Eagan, S.J., Gallarelli, S.J., and Holland, S.J., from the Fairfield Jesuit Community; homilist Fr. Richard Roos, S.J. '62; and deacon Rev. Mr. Paul Kurmay '62.
All enjoyed a delicious dinner held in Brissette Gymnasium, where the class presented Fr. Hanwell, S.J., with a record-breaking class pledge gift in the amount of $324,400 which will be used to benefit Fairfield Prep's Jesuit Educators Academy and Annual Fund. Sunday events continued with breakfast at Prep and the 70th Commencement at Alumni Hall, where the Class of 1962 processed with the Class of 2012 and received their golden diplomas. All attendees enjoyed reminiscing and reconnecting with their classmates.
