Familiar Faces

The fall semester meeting of the Park Scholar Alumni Advisory Board brought a bunch of recent alums to town this weekend. In addition to being able to spend some time with Joe and Brenda (Ludwig) Geraghty (class of ’04 and ”03, respectively) and Michelle (Theis) Cuthrell ’05, I was also able to say hello to Kate Sheppard ’06, Katie Borges Farnham ’03, Brad Bisbing ’01 and Brian Dashew ’06.
Then when I was at Mass on Sunday morning, who turns up but James Sigman’98, who was in town with Anthony Iaffaldano ’99, Mike Cagnazzi ’98 and others celebrating Anthony’s 30th birthday at Maxie’s. Happy Birthday, Anthony!
