St. Francis de Sales High School
Class of 1958 Reunion
August 22-24, 2008
The class picture was taken before the dinner at the Davis-Shai House. For many more pictures taken at the reunion, click on the links at the end of this section of the website titled Reunion Pictures. The reunion was held on Friday, August 22 through Sunday, August 24, 2008.
Although we feel we now have a pretty good compilation of pictures and memories of the reunion, if you still have anything to contribute, we welcome your submissions. If you are technically challenged to know how to provide pictures, either Marcy or I can try to help! One suggestion is that, if you are unfamiliar with how to e-mail pictures, you could have them put on a CD or DVD and mail them to either Marcy or me.
My e-mail address was slightly wrong in the program folder, but is correct on the card that Marcy made and we passed out at the dinner, email@example.com
If you have any comments you would like posted, feel free to post in the guestbook or e-mail your comments to me and tell me you would like me to post them. Thanks especially to Jerry Angeletti, Phyllis Jordan Williams, and Mary Louise Thum Butler, and all who helped in any way to make the weekend memorable.The CD with music from 1958 and the laminated diploma were wonderful ideas!
Note: This was a bit of a daunting job putting this together and you may be surprised to find I am not infallible. So, if you note any mistakes or other problems with what is posted, let me know. E-mail works best for me if you can manage. You will not hurt my feelings; I think Marcy can attest to that. It has been my pleasure to make this contribution to our reunion!

About This Website This website is a work in progress. Members of the class who may have ideas, suggestions, criticisms, or offerings can email Dave Ralston at firstname.lastname@example.org who is creating this for the class of '58. Early pictures of the class members from Blessed Sacrament would be especially appreciated.
For those who do not recognize my name, I went to St. Francis with this class until 1953 when my family moved to Cincinnati. In 2005 I moved back to Newark after my retirement from Xavier University in Cincinnati where I worked for 30 years in various administrative positions. I have long been involved with the web as a hobby and so, after some encouragement from Marcy Maybold Buzzelli, I decided to give this a shot. Marcy is assisting me in the project by supplying pictures, making people aware of it, and helping me edit the content.
The class of 1958 was the last graduating class of St. Francis de Sales High School. In the fall of 1958, Newark Catholic High School opened its doors and graduated their first class in 1959. They have graciously included a link to this site on the reunion page of their website. The elementary school continues at the original site on Granville Street.
