Once again, we had a wonderful morning with our Golden Mustang classes of '66, '67 and '68. Each fall, we invite all Golden Mustangs (those having celebrated their 50th reunion), along with the class involved in the planning stages for their 50th to join us for this special day..
This year's event was held on Monday, September 18 and was hosted by the IHS Alumni Association. It began with a Mass in the IHS chapel, where all deceased members of these three classes were prayed for and was followed by a brunch in the cafeteria. Monsignor John Hossan, IHS's first principal, was in attendance and enjoyed a 90th birthday cake, while our students sang "Happy Birthday" to him. We will have many opportunities to reunite our Golden Mustangs so that each of you can stay connected with IHS and with each other.

Immaculate High School values our relationship with our alumni. Unfortunately, we sometimes lose touch due to moves, job changes and life events. Please help us find missing classmates so that they don't miss out on alumni updates and special events such as the 50th Golden Mustangs Reunion. Please visit www.immaculatehs.org/alumniupdate to update your contact information. The following '68 alumni are missing email addresses, and for some we have no contact information. Thank you!
