The VCHS class of 1971 held their 40 year reunion on Saturday, August 20th, at the Knights of Columbus in Oil City. The reunion included 28 classmates, 11 guests, and three faculty including Rod Hartle, John Rosenhamer, and Fr. John Santor. Fr. John Malthaner, headmaster at Venango Catholic High School, was invited to give an update on the school. The alumni presented him with a check for the “Buy a Blind” fundraiser currently being held to replace the blinds at the school. Dave Hall was Master of Ceremonies for the night.
Fr. John Santor led a prayer in remembrance of the eight deceased members of the class of 1971: John Buchanowski, Tom DeCorte, Dan Fedorek, Mark Garbacz, Julia Martyna Jamison, Denny Serafin, Kathy Woloszyn Phipps, and Jim Woodring.
Thank you to all of our committee members including Kathy Andres McBride, Eileen Caffery Riddle, Jean Deemer Gilmore, Dave and Connie Fitzgerald Hall, Carey Solle, Chris Straub, and Jerry and Rosi Todhunter Schneider.
