30 hopeful passengers from McLean Ave. up to Milford, Connecticut. Rich Condon co-ordinated the enjoyable day, which
featured a full course dinner, the fast-paced action of Jai Alai, some winners and, alas, some losers too.

In Prayerful Remembrance of the Faithful Departed
Daze and Knights
Best wishes to Joe Crean and Liz on the birth of their son Zachary.....Nice to read the heart-warming article in the New York Post
about Tim Crowe from softball rival Vera Cruz Council. Tim, exemplifying the K of C ideals in action, donated half of his $1,000 football
contest prize to another entrant in the pool who was homeless.....We hear Rich Condon celebrated a milestone recently.....Looks like
Ed Crean found himself a great part-time job to bring in a little extra cash flow - it's called the 30/20/10 club drawing - and what a great
touch bringing Dennis Deegan in to pick out the winning ticket.....Gerry Conroy and Carmine Tabacco finding similar side jobs called the
Monday Night Football Pool.....Bob Rehm threatens to boycott the Super Bowl until they come up with an NFC vs NFC format.....We
hear Jim Maher is laying low in Woodlawn, waiting for the heat blow over on the Staten Island Free Throw mixup - Bob Ellis claims he
knew something was amiss when Jim told him that he got the date from Ed Sullivan - hmmm.....Boyd owes a big debt of thanks to the many
members ( the majority of them softball players ) who helped us clean out our Yonkers storage site. This will result in a $1500 annual savings.
Another weight-loss wager is definitely in order.....Bill Reilly appeared to really enjoy his All Hallows Reunion based on the many pictures in
their newsletter.....Did Bob "Tex" Ellis really have Jim Maher trapped at an ATM on McLean Ave?.....Did JJ Jordan and Vinnie LaRegina
really quit softball to be scab baseball players.....Did Bobby "Buttons" daughter Kerianne really make the first left-handed layup in family history?
Saw Dennis Farley's son Brian recently recognized for some late game heroics in the Gannet newspaper.....Could Timmy Rehm's mail delivery
really be that slow? - maybe Joe Carey is involved in this somehow......
