Saturday September 12th:
Tour of the High School

Saturday September 12th:
Tour of the High School
Updated: September 10th

There are some changes from the original itinerary:

We will meet at the high school Middle entrance at 10:00 am to tour the high school (about 1 hour).
Then after the high school tour, we will take the bus on the extended tour which will include some new sights in Upper St Clair, including the new rec center near Mayview. We will then continue on to The new North Shore and the south side – Arriving back to the High School at 1:00pm.

These changes were made to allow some who may have wanted to come, but were helping out - to still come to the tour and have time to help at the farm, or to go back to your hotel to freshen up.

Up to 44 can go on the bus so if you know of anyone else who wants to come, just let us know.

Use the registration form at the website.

The tours are free events & we still have many seats open

Thank you to Dr Patrick O'Toole - Supt.
Dr. Lou Angelo - HS Principal
and Tom Labanc our tour guide.

For anyone coming in early for Reunion Weekend, a group of people are going to meet at The Bottle Shop in Bridgeville
on Thursday Night to watch the Steelers beat the Patriots. Spread the word.

Diane Troy stated on 11/5/14 - Hi Everyone!
Polly has reserved the Gilfillan Farm for our 40th Reunion for September 12, 2015. There have been some recent reunions at the Farm and it seems to me that this is the perfect venue! But, we need lots of help trying to get the reunion going. The first is to get the word out and mark your calendar. Please respond if you can help out in any way in planning of the reunion.


From Dan Wilhelm: Thanks, Diane and Polly, for all your help in launching us. We are on our way.
Our hope is to enjoy celebrating 40 years, reconnect throughout the year ahead, renew relationships, expand the organizing group, stage a successful event and increase turnout.

- Join in the conversation -

Please we need your help

We have a few volunteers already, but never enough - we would like your help - if you want to help and have some things you would like to do, please let us know.

The Class of 74 and 73 had their reunions at Gilfillans farm and had a great time - See some of the pictures from the class of 74 reunion
Rob Main had a great idea - for each of us to Write about one of the most memorable experience in high school? I think that would be so cool to read and reflect back on those days. If anyone wouild like to participate, then email your most memorable experience in high school to the link below and we will start a page on the website. We have also added to the "We Remember When" section a "most memorable high school experience" section if you would like to add there.

Let's Notify All Our Classmates of the Reunion

Gilfillan Farm

we have several former classmates who live far away and would like to come, but just can't.

As Ted Metrose said "I live way out in Hawaii so I really do not have much of an opportunity to make it back to Pittsburgh. Thanks just the same and I hope you all have a great time. Maholo, Ted "

So, It would be nice to have a picture from them and a 'Hi to the reunion' and something about yourself and we could post this at the reunion. If you would like to do this, just send the pic and the narrative and I will compile to display. There are many people who would love to see you and this will give you a bit of a presence.
