ANNOUNCEMENTS

WELCOME TO THE SJS58DG CLASS WEBSITE

     

We had a terrific time at our 50th Reunion! Please join us for our 60th!

Draft, unfinished message - awaiting Planning Committee Response: Many of us in our graduating class of 79 students attended St. Joseph Catholic School together from the 1st thru the 8th grades, in the Village of Downers Grove, Illinois. Our last names are reminiscient of the post WWII era: Crepeau, Drimba, Epach, Fritz, Graff, Howerton, Jalowiec, Jamieson, Kopecky, Laczynski, Michalek, Niemec, Ruhnau, Schlanser, Sienkowski, Skala, Tuskey, and Wosik. 

Long before any of us had ever heard of subgroups, we constituted one. The collective feel of our relationships transcended our individual friendships. We remember one another (and all of our antics, personality quirks, and adolescent romances) vividly. Being catholic in what seemed to be a largely protestant town, we were keenly aware that we were different, and undoubtedly contributed to the strength of our feelings as a group. 

The mere mention of places (beyond the school whose playground was a blocked-off city street) such as Prince Pond (our Winter skating paradise) and the Tivoli Theatre (pipe organ and heavy red drapes), elicits intensely pleasant memories.
