The Planning Committee for the Abington Heights Class of 1973 met recently at the home of Nettie Serine Goldstein in Clarks Summit to finalize 40th reunion plans. A date has been set for Oct. 12, 2013 for the reunion, with activities scheduled for the entire weekend of Oct. 11 through 13.
According to Maryann Spellman Young, “We chose this weekend to coincide with Abington Heights Homecoming Weekend. This is a great time of year to come back to Clarks Summit, enjoy the foliage and take in a home football game.”
The weekend will launch with an informal gathering at a local restaurant Friday evening. Kim Bujnowski Corning is organizing a fun run/walk on Saturday morning, with proceeds going to charity. Football is a possible afternoon option, followed by the Class Reunion to be held at Nichols Village Saturday evening. Serine Goldstein is hosting a Farewell Brunch Sunday.
“Our greatest challenge, at this point, is locating missing classmates. We have not had a reunion in 20 years and we would love to reach as many classmates as possible. We are asking for help from family and friends to notify members of the Class of ’73 about the upcoming event,” said Suzee Joseph McCabe. The class has established a very comprehensive Class Page that can be found at www.abingtonheights73.com where classmates can complete a profile and keep in touch with other members.
Members of the Planning Committee include Maryann Spellman Young, Anne O’Donnell Farias, Eileen Ferrario Burke, Suzee Joseph McCabe, Bob Justice, Joe and Diane Huggler Hughes, Mark Stahller, Barry Bittenbender, Nettie Serine Goldstein, Anne VonBergen Phillips and Beth Giblin Adams.
