July 26 Grizzlies Game
LaGrottta, Flesch, Fillman, Collignon, R Simokaitis and Miceli
Dan Armbruster and John Mernah called to become part of the group by phone.
Bill Fillman is credited for suggesting this annual event.  Last night may have been Bill's last time there.  
We wish Bill well as, this Fall, he will be moving to Texas to live the retired life.
 
One of the things that make's the Grizzlies' game so cool  
is the spectacular view watching the sun set over the St Louis skyline.
Grizzlies trailed most of the game but sealed the win with a grand slam in the 8th.

The school and its president are working wonders to maintain and grow St Mary's academic and athletic traditions
while slowly updating buildings, grounds and technology needed to be competitive in today's education market.
Choosing an educational path, young men and their families have some pretty good choices.
St Mary's is still in the running offering a great education at a reasonable price. 
The school's aim moving forward is to have and even stronger positive influence on the south side;
educating and guiding its young men while helping to stabilize the neighborhood
setting a high example and by welcoming all to make use of its state of the art athletic facilities.

 
 
The term Renaissance was chosen because of the program's objective;
a rebirth of St Mary's and of the South Side
 
St Mary's Alumni is one of the school's biggest strengths.  
18% of St. Mary's Alumni contribute annually to the school.  
Compared to 5-6% for alumni from other Catholic schools, we are far and away the best!
"St. Mary's" is a great answer to the St Louis question; "Where did you go to high school?"
You don't need a meeting or a special invitation to do what you know is right.  
Please donate as you can to help the rebirth and to keep the tradition alive.
