A great big thank you to Ed Allahand and the rest of the group for putting together a great reunion. Was well worth the long trip back home again. You all did a splendid job with the name tags, presentation, etc. The after party at the Eddington House and brunch on Saturday rounded out a terrific weekend. When I got back to Florida on Sunday I realized that my face hurt from all the laughing and smiling!
I have posted pictures from the reunion on my profile.

I have lots of great memories of the reunion to take back with me to Norway. It was actually nice that there weren't hundreds of alumni there, it would have been difficult to see and talk with everyone.

Nice job to the committee for putting together a first-class affair. (Altho 11 pm was far too early to call it a night. We aren't THAT old yet!)

Look forward to the next time we meet. In the meantime, we can get together on "" and keep in touch there. Maybe we can start a group page on which to download our photos...?

"Greetings Classmates"
I was stuck in Greece, and will be traveling around Europe for the rest of the winter. It sounds like everyone had a 'Great' time at the reunion. I know I missed a fantastic time with friends.
I read some of the responses and there was a common thread. It was, as we all know, it was short.
I'm proposing that we do a 7 day Class of '73~Caribbean Cruise Reunion'.
For one cabin price we'll get; seven wonderful days on the ocean; swimming, hot tubbing, eating never stops, Broadway and Comedy shows daily, ship wide competitions, and more. Or you can just relaxing join on deck talking with friends with no worry of it "Ending to soon."
If you've never been on a cruise, you owe it to yourself to try one. Why not all go together. Even if you don't get off the ship to venture out, you will have a great time being pampered in the luxury you deserve.
Talk it up. We'll all be glad we did!
Take care my friends and enjoy life to it's fullest!

"Hi" Fellow Classmates from 1973~!

 Next year is 2013. Has 40 years gone by since we walked across the stage? Time has flown by so quickly.

Passing from carefree adolescence to adulthood. Well for some of you that is. Some of us grow older but refuse to let go of our childhood innocence. Life rushes by so fast either way. Let us take the time to enjoy each others company yet another time.

We will celebrate and have a fantastic time together at our 2013 reunion.

Anyone have any additional suggestions?

A nice saturday night dinner, drinks, dancing, and what about day~time fun either the day before or the day after the dinner.

Come on~! Let us get a discussion going on what we would like to have happen. You know: Have fun with it.

Talk with you all so very soon.

I have been to our 5th & our 15th reunion and I am looking forward to our 40th.  I have lived in Arizona since 1978 and I can't wait to get back to see some old friends.  I have a picture of Miss Wise's 5th grade class at Samuel K. Faust with Bill Cadutti and Ray Mchugh,(among others) I will bring it. See you there.

Catherine M. Wishart (Gaworski)

OMG - Miss Wise! She and I mixed like oil and water.... now Mr. Murdock - I'd love to find out where he is now!

I lost most of the pictures from Faust in a house fire. I'm hoping people will bring some along to the reunion.

I would like to thank everyone for attending the reunion last Friday. Pictures will be posted soon. The photographer's contact information is:

EP Digital Imaging  This is difficult to read. Here it is in caps but use lower case of course to send




He charged $15 for the pic. and $15 for the disc. The disc included 152 pictures and was done very well.

He charged $25 for both. He really liked spending the night with us and commented, "They were a nice bunch of GOOD people." I agree!

I hope we all remain healthy and happy.   I can't wait to see all of you in a few years OR SOONER.

Haven't had anything on the message forum for a while. I know the alumni site are using it a lot. We're getting more and more people on the site, including Joe Mattiaci who just signed up. Which answers the question "what the hell ever happened to Joe Mattiaci?"

Ed Allahand

This is the message forum that I was talking about. Joe and I had a great conversation about his days as a football and wresting star. We also remembered some of the classmates we lost along the way.

The Bensalem Alumni Assoc has scheduled the All Class Reunion for Sept 24th 2022 from 1-5 at the 1675 Club at the Ridges, Which is the old German Hungarian Club on Bristol Rd in Oakford. Price is $25.00 which includes a  full buffet. Cash bar. It would be great if we had a large turnout from our class. Also next year will be our 50th. Anyone who is interested in putting together a committee, let me know. Would like to get some feedback on this message forum. Great way to connect. Where are you Joe Mattiacci, Ray Mchugh, Mark Gage? We've been in touch, I'm sure people would be happy to hear from you, Nancy Kamnik, Don Holdren, Rick Cianni. Anyone?
