73rd Banquet Results still going strong.

2019 SAINT GEORGE ALUMNI BANQUET CLASS CAPTAIN AND ASSOCIATES:

 

FANTASTIC WORK, ONE AND ALL!   Our (“Blue Sheet”) January 17, 2019 goal -- 350 in attendance at our Monday, May 6th Gathering -- was exceeded (at 358) by 8 while surpassing our 2017 (at 343) and 2018 (at 344) Banquet crowds!

 

All of us contributing to our successful Banquet ticket acquisition this spring have every reason to be proud of our efforts.  With the final (1969) graduating class the biggest ever (at 306) -- and with that class celebrating (Alumni Banquet day) fifty years since leaving Saint George -- we had the “numbers base” to bring in an impressive crowd.  And we did just that! 

 

Including pre-day-of, at-the-door, and guest ticket acquisitions, please note here your class’s 2019 Alumni Banquet ticket tallies:   Our Class Captain-led groups 1946: 7;  1949: 7;  1950: 6;  1951: 7;  1952: 4;  1954: 20;  1955: 15;  1956: 12;  1957: 6;  1958: 9;  1959: 29;  1960: 8;  1961: 13;  1962: 6;  1963: 12;  1964: 36;  1965: 13;  1966: 17;  1967: 17;  1968: 19;  and 1969: 94

 

Non-Class-Captain class tallies:  1938: 2;  1953: 5;  1970: 3

 

Enhancing our 358 “numbers success” this recruitment season:   In January, supplying each Captain with the 2012 Harris Connect Directory page copies for their class and additional reminder “e-blasts” during the twelve-week Banquet ticket acquisition period.

  

Please:   Give the attachment to this e-mail a careful look.  (Burr Ridge) Joanna needs to track down twenty Alumni Banquet participants Monday, May 6th who weren’t checked in at the door and, hence, not listed in the attachment.   Recall a classmate, a classmate guest at the Banquet but you notice the name not listed here, in the attachment?  Contact Joanna immediately, at 1-630-323-3725, Extension 220.  Thanks so much!

 

Available since Friday, May 10th, you, your graduation buddies, and your Banquet night guests should be interested in our great set of online photo viewings of the Event.  Try perusing www.cbmidwest.smugmug.com – with photo-purchasing help offered by Alex Vasiliades (at 1-630-323-3725, Extension 221), if you’re in the “buying mood.”

 

Special thanks to Class Captain Rene Pelletier ’65 for his on-going website updating, at www.saintgeorgehs.com.   Give Rene’s latest efforts an online look.   You’ll be impressed!

 

With most of you “veteran” Class Captains, you’ve already received – as a small token of the Association’s and my appreciation for your efforts– your limited-edition Saint George Lapel Pin.  Do let me know – by the internet (at pauljquinn@att.net) or a phone call (at 1-773-784-3328) – if there’s someone recently helpful to you with your Banquet class recruitment deserving of a Dragon Lapel Pin.

 

Typically, we end a Dragon Alumni Banquet Season with yours truly offering you -- on my dime -- lunch at the Union League Club or dinner at the (Chicago, Clark Street) Calo Ristorante.

 

With the ever-increasing tuition challenging more Saint Patrick (High School) families each school year - the minimum 2019-2020 school year tuition cost will be more than $12,470 - I'm redirecting my Union League Club/Calo expenditure again this year to our Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, helping Dragon-related, deserving Shamrocks with their tuition payments.

 

Those Dragons recently donating additional monies to our Saint Patrick tuition aid effort (beyond a portion of their $65.00 Banquet ticket price) should be here especially thanked.

 

With the maintenance of a strong Banquet ticket acquisition critical to our continued success with our perennial, first-Monday-in-May Gathering, I sincerely appreciate your help and wish you a pleasant summer and

 

Only the best,

 

Paul Quinn '66

SGHS Alumni Banquet Chair

 

P.S.:      We’re “luncheoning” Monday, May 4, 2020, as we celebrate our 74th Annual 

              Alumni Banquet.  Tons of Dragon Alumni Banquet Luncheon information 

              forthcoming!

 

P.P.S.:   PCI Dragon Directory updating continues.  Phone (toll free) 1-866-875-2548

             be in production.  


72nd Saint George Alumni Banquet at The White Eagle in Niles  

SATURDAY 

May 19, 2018

 2018 SAINT GEORGE ALUMNI BANQUET CLASS CAPTAIN AND ASSOCIATES:

 CONGRATULATIONS, ONE AND ALL!   Our January 19th goal - 335 Banquet tickets purchased for our Monday, May 7th Gathering - was exceeded (at 344) by 9 while surpassing our 2017 Banquet ticket acquisition (at 343) by 1!

 All of us contributing to our successful Banquet ticket acquisition this spring have every reason to be proud of our efforts.  We know of 110 Dragons meeting their Creator since our Monday, May 1, 2017 Banquet.  That sobering fact coupled with (since 1969) a 47-year absence in adding to our alumni base makes our 2018 Banquet attendance accomplishment commendable.  

 GREAT WORK!

 Including pre- and at-the-door ticket sales Monday, May 7th, please note here your class’s 2018 Alumni Banquet ticket acquisition:   Class Captain-led 1946: 7;  1949: 9;  1950: 8;  1951: 9;  1952: 0;  1954: 3;  1955: 14;  1956: 16;  1957: 8;  1958: 47;  1959: 5;  1960: 8;  1961: 14;  1962: 5;  1963: 18;  1964: 13;  1965: 9;  1966: 13;  1967: 7;  1968: 85;  1969: 21

 Non-Class-Captain class tallies:  1938: 1;  1948: 2;  1953: 11;  1970: 4

 Available since Friday, May 11th, you and/or your graduation buddies should be interested in online photo viewings of the Banquet.  If so, try http://www.cbmidwest.smugmug.com – with photo-purchasing help offered by Alex Vasiliades (at 1-630-323-3725, Extension 221).

 Special thanks to Class Captain Rene Pelletier ’65 for his on-going website updating, at http://www.saintgeorgehs.com/

 Over our ten-week Banquet class recruitment effort, our five bi-weekly Class Captain Updates, Banquet ticket distribution, White Eagle contacts, and countless Event details could not have been better handled by Joanna Wagner, Assistant Director of Development for the Midwest District Christian Brothers, and my wife Jane.   Fantastic work, Joanna and Darling!

 With most of you “veteran” Class Captains, you’ve already received – as a small token of the Association’s and my appreciation for your efforts– your limited-edition Saint George Lapel Pin.  Do let me know – by the internet (at pauljquinn@att.net) or a phone call (at 1-7732-784-3328) – if there’s someone recently helpful to you with your Banquet class recruitment deserving of a Dragon Lapel Pin.

 Typically, we end a Dragon Alumni Banquet Season with yours truly offering you - on my dime - lunch at the Union League Club or dinner at the Clark Street Calo Ristorante.

 With the ever-increasing tuition challenging more Shamrock families each school year - the minimum 2018-2019 school year tuition cost is $12,470 - I'm diverting a Union League Club/Calo expenditure to our Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.

 Might I suggest you also consider an additional donation (beyond the dwindling percentage of your $65.00 Banquet ticket cost) to the Scholarship Fund, with Joanna (at 1-630-323-3725, Extension 220) assisting you?

 With the maintenance of a strong Banquet ticket acquisition critical to our continued success with our perennial, first-Monday-in-May Gathering, I sincerely thank you for your help and wish you

 Only the best!
