Phillipsburg Parochial High School

Millennium Party

150 members of Phillipsburg Parochial classes 1947, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52 and 53 gathered Friday, September 15 at Flynn's on the Hill to celebrate the ending of the 2nd millennium and the beginning of the 3rd. Fran Flynn (class of 1951) and his staff served an excellent and varied array of tempting foods. Everyone enjoyed dancing to the big band sounds of the 15 piece Dave Neith Orchestra. The highlight of the evening was seeing so many of our old schoolmates. Sister Josita, homeroom teacher for the class of 1950 also attended. Kudos to the planning committee.
