Where are those missing alums?
The Serra 50th reunion committee continues to track down classmates who, for one reason or another, remain elusive. The job has been made considerably easier through the use of the Internet, a technological breakthrough undreamed-of during the 1950s. The committee _ Gene Mellor, Steve Difu, Pete Cocconi, John Turner, Red Moroney, Terry Griffin, George Fulvio, Mich Calegari, Rene White, Bert Figone, Pat Battaglia, John Horgan and a cast of thousands, well, at least a handful on a good day _ met again on Jan. 7 at Harry's Hofbrau near Five Points in Redwood City and shared notes, recommendations and opinions. Some of the outcomes included these determinations regarding the reunion (set for the weekend of Oct. 22-24): Spouses/partners will be welcome but not required; hotel/dinner reservations will be handled by Serra's alumni office (Bob Greene is the boss there); eventual donations, whether to the late Jim McGinnis' life work, Serra itself or anything else, will be entirely voluntary; a golf outing remains to be set up; another committee gathering will be held early in May. Stay in touch. You can contact John Horgan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, e-mail is the preferred method of communication.
