Class of 1997 - 20th Reunion

It was in June of 1997 that we received our Loyola High School Diploma. Looking back, there is a flood of memories. Fr. Maclean (El Presidenti), Mr. Dubee (Principal), Mr. Burke and Fr. Brennan (Chaplain) kept us on the short and narrow. Elizabeth Haughey, Jim Ruddy, Azade Godin and Wally Martin “graduated” with us. We had a host of great teachers and coaches. Salvatore Di Maio gave the Salutatory address and Philip Trippenbach was the Valedictorian at the Commencement exercises where 122 of us walked across the stage. A number of us went to Stratford (“As You Like It”, “The Music man”, and “Barrymore”), participated in The Science Fair and The Festival of the Arts. The Fall and Winter Sports Tournaments were great fun and helped break up the school year. There were many memorable events at Carnival, our fabulous grad dance and Walkathon. The Loyola Drama Society’s production of “The Taming of the Shrew” and a spectacular Talent Night were great successes. There were countless clubs, committees, student council and all those great sport teams that we were part of. It’s time to once again assemble and remember so many great times and the special friendships that were part-and-parcel of Loyola.

There’s much to reminisce about!!
Mark your calendars!!
October the 6th and 7th, 2017.

On the Friday night we will arrive at the school around 6pm and gather as a class in a designated spot. Later in the evening, we will head downstairs and join fellow alumni at the Annual Beer, Oysters and Smoked Meat evening hosted by the LHS Alumni Association. Around 11 in the evening, we will head downtown to an appropriate watering hole - we should be able to find one.

On the Saturday, there will be a mass at 4pm in the High School Chapel and a tour of the school for anyone who is interested. This will be followed by an evening at a restaurant/club/etc (time and place to be determined). We would love to see you, so if you can only make the Friday or the Saturday night, that’s great. If you need a hotel, the school has corporate rates at a few places – contact Connie Di Iorio (514-486-1101 ext 275) for details.

Plans for the Saturday night will be forthcoming and if anybody has a suggestion for the Saturday night, you can forward it to Mike Elie at This email address is being protected from spambots.
