Start Spreading the News!
The Empehi Reunion Association was well into the planning of a reunion for August 3-5, 2012.  Based upon the success of earlier reunions, we were planning a casual Friday night event and a Saturday dinner.  Details were forthcoming on our fabulous new website at www.morganparkhigh.com or morganparkhigh.myevent.com – register now on the “Sign In” page so you get all the announcements!
The Reunion Committee is looking for volunteers to organize small group activities which might include a Sunday picnic, a golf tournament, Navy Pier Crawl, Chicago River architectural cruise, a trip to the Art Institute or a White Sox game.  Of course, the ever popular Morgan Park High School tour is on the agenda and grammar school get-togethers will need to be planned by those groups, too.
Which of these interest you the most?   Please let us know – especially if you would like to organize one of these small group events -- by using the “contact us” link on the website at
www.morganparkhigh.com or morganparkhigh.myevent.com.
Please get the word out to those who may not receive this e-mail, or classmates from 1964 or 1968 who might be interested in attending. Send them to the website to sign in. This is a great time to reconnect with your old classmates and let them know about the reunion.  Hope to see you in Chicago this August.

The Parker High School Alumni Association Luncheon
Sunday, September 26, 2010
The Parker High School Alumni Association hosted the 15th Annual "After Fiftieth" Luncheon on Sunday, September 26, 2010, at the Lexington House in Hickory Hills, Illinois, from noon until 4:00 pm.  In mid-July, the invitation/reservation forms were sent to the current mailing list of classmates who graduated in 1932 through 1959.
 
It was anticipated that there would be approximately 400 people at this annual event.  Beginning at noon, prior to the luncheon, class photos were taken of the anniversary classes from 1940, (70th); 1945 (65th); 1950 (60th); and 1955 (55th).  In addition, all attendees from the 1930's decade were photographed as well.
 
The cost for this event was $25.00 per person and each class was be assigned a table or tables according to the number of reservations received prior to the deadline date, September 10, 2010.  There was a band to supply the listening pleasure of old favorites and a short program, but basically, this was viewed as an opportunity to see former classmates and enjoy the camaraderie and remembrances of days past.

Kanoon All Graduates Reunion
Monday, November 16, 2009
We had a reunion which was first to be a 25 year reunion for all graduates from 1984 on, but the rest of us wouldn't have it.  There were only two more graduating classes before this and all of us were included.  So the reunion was for all graduates that ever graduated from Kanoon during its history.
 
A lot of students had been talking with each other on facebook, and asked about their former teachers at Kanoon; several were mentioned.  I am aware that several have retired since I graduated-as far as I know that is Ms. Patricia Williams, Ms. Gretchen Mobley, and probably Mr. Joseph Rodriguez.  Gretchen Mobley taught before Kanoon school at Robert Burns because I had her for 4th grade there.

Monday, November 16, 2009 at Polonia Banquets Donation $50.00 includes Dinner, Open Bar, Entertainment and 1 share to be used to purchase Mobile Laptops. For info please contact Becky Gomez -773-534-1738. Only 25 alumni from each year, will be able to participate. Tickets were available at Kanoon Magnet School.
The evening started at 6pm.  Call the school for more info.  You can also join the Kanoon School Alumni Group to see students who have graduated or attended Kanoon School.  Former students as far back as 1981's graduating class attended the reunion on Nov. 16th.
See the link below for the facebook group.
