Class of ’59 gets back to the Point

If you or someone you know graduated from College Point’s St. Agnes Academic High School in 1959, here’s some important news.

A group of alumni from the first Roman Catholic high school in Queens, which celebrated its centennial last year, is having a class reunion on Sunday, October 25 – and they’re looking for their sisters.

“Of the 172 graduates we have about 64 names,” said Doris Kohler, one of the organizers. “We’re trying to get in touch with everyone, but after so many years, you lose touch,” Kohler said.

The day begins with an 11:15 Mass at nearby St. Fidelis Church, 123-06 14th Avenue. Following the services, there will be a reception from 12:30 until approximately 2:30 p.m. at the school, located at 13-20 124th Street.

From there, Kohler said, “We’re going to Cascarino’s on Main Street,” which means the Cascarino’s at 14-60 College Point Boulevard to those who didn’t grow up in College Point.

“We’ll have a nice spread there, and we can relax in their banquet room until 7 p.m. and probably a little later,” she said.

Anyone who wants (or has) more information is encouraged to email Kohler at DORISE@aol.com, or call St. Agnes’ Development Director Veronica McBreen at 718-353-6276.
