Great to see your pixels, John!

My name is John Paul Dunn and I graduated from Holy Name of Mary in 1960. Along with Ralph Ricci, I’m one of the organizers of the reunion. A number of people have heard about it just since we began our efforts in May and the word is spreading. Our hope is to draw people from as many classes as possible. The school opened in 1929 or 1930 and did not close its doors until 1990 or thereabouts. So a lot of people passed through those doors. We hope to hear from many of them in the coming weeks.
