6 years, 2 months and 13 days since
our Reunion.

  Fifty years ago or so, you took a trip to Childs, Maryland to see what life as an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales would be like. Most of us found out that it was a great life punctuated with prayers, hard work, studies, snowball fights, Sr. Jane's cooking and kissing the floor...... A considerable number of folks left right there!
  The rest moved on to college, teaching, and more school. Somewhere along the line, a whole bunch more went our own way. Such is life. How about calling all of us "The Wild Geese" after the 19th Century Irish Catholics who joined Napoleon to fight against the English? In Latin that would be: "anseres a lacu abiti" - Geese who've flown the pond!
But we still made terrific friendships which deserved to be renewed. We've weathered a half century of adventures, successes, and failures. There's a lot of catching up to do.

*****  Next reunion, Reunion V, is being planned
for 2019, July 11,12, and 13th. at Niagara University

in Lewiston, NY.  *****
