PCSS Alumni Night - May 5, 2006
Nifty Rainbow Bar

PCSS held its sixth annual Alumni Night at the school, on Friday May 5th, 2006. The theme this year was Warriors Football - while all graduates were welcome, former Port Credit Warriors and former cheerleaders were especially encouraged to attend.

We also celebrated the 80th birthday of Nick Volpe, a much-beloved PCHS teacher and coach. Alumni had the opportunity to send Nick their birthday greetings via the website, or by signing the giant birthday card outside the auditorium. During the evening a presentation was held, and Nick gave a speech detailing some of his fond memories at PCHS.

It was a record Alumni Night this year --- the paid attendance was 372 (last year's attendance was 312). While there weren't many 1980s grads this year, we were very well represented by the 1940s and 1950s alumni, many of whom came to meet Nick Volpe.

Once again, we owe a tremendous 'thank you' to our generous alumni --- together, they donated $1,275 to our scholarship fund this year, including the proceeds from the Yearbook CD sales, and PCSS T-shirt sales. Thanks to all graduates for their genersoity!

The Alumni Night pictures will be rotated this year. This is just the first batch, and we will add more photos regularly. Check back often to see what other interesting photographs we will post!

If you didn't get a chance to register with us during the Alumni Night, all is not lost! You can still send us your contact information, and we will keep you informed of any future alumni-related events. Just visit our registration page.
