Another fun-filled gathering of classmates & spouses, ended with River Vale besting Hillsdale to win the Pisarri Cup, in Myrtle Beach. This annual event, held in memory of Bill “Duke” Getler, has evolved into more than a golfing event, as the Duke intended. The wet weather didn’t dampen enthusiasm for golf, indoor games, the hilarious Lip Sync Battle, or story telling. Email: email@example.com
for more information. The Welcome Mat is always out!

The key objective of the Reunion Committee Meeting held at PHHS on August 15th
and Chaired by Tom Pisarri, was to complete evaluation of local restaurants & hotels and select a venue for our Gala Reunion Dinner & Dance to be held on Saturday evening October 7, 2017.
Within Days of the meeting, the Venue Task Team, lead by Linda (Meyer) Verdicchio, recommended the Marriott Hotel in Park Ridge NJ as the site for our dinner & dance. This gorgeous venue satisfies the Committee’s objectives for an upscale affordable location with hotel to accommodate out-of-town classmates attending the Reunion. We expect to reserve a block of rooms at reduced prices.
A YES-NO-MAYBE Reunion Attendance Survey
will be emailed to you within 2 weeks. The Committee needs to firm-up it’s attendance estimate in order to complete negotiations with the Marriott and to better plan other weekend events, like the Sunday BBQ picnic. A tentative Schedule-of-Events and price ranges will be included with the Survey.
Completing the survey promptly will help the Committee maintain it’s planning momentum. Results of the survey will be shared later so you know who will attend. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered in a raffle to win one free ticket to the Sunday picnic.
It just might be you!
