Memorial Service planned for Bernie Walko

A memorial service has been scheduled for Bernie Walko and his wife at the end of the month. Both passed away within the past year. Their daughter, Anne, was a member of the graduating class of 1969. Mr Walko was as much a part of our high school lives as any student or teacher. The date of the service is Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in the chapel at Saint Anthony’s Cemetery on Hoyt Street in Larksville. If any local alumni can attend, it would be much appreciated by the Walko family. Thank you.

Want to set up a class website?

I recently received an email from Zac Davis of ClassReport.org. If anyone is interested in setting up an individual class website, this might be a good option. Also, if you would like anything (reunion notices, class news, human interest stories, etc.) posted on bishoporeilly.org or our Facebook page, email me.

Those of you who aren’t fans of Bishop O’Reilly High School on Facebook might have missed a fascinating post. Last fall, a recording of the 1988 commencement exercises were posted on Youtube. If you haven’t seen it, do check it out. It will be a great trip down memory lane for many graduates, I’m sure.

News from the Class of 1978

Hello Classmate!

Can you believe it’s 34 years since we walked the hallowed halls of Bishop O’Reilly High School!
My how the time has flown by. Recently, many of our fellow classmates have reconnected from around the country through the magic of Facebook and the internet, and if you don’t already know we are in the stages of planning our 34th Class Reunion. The date has been set, as you may have received your save the date card. It will be on Saturday, August 25th at Konefals Grove Shavertown Pa.

Our second planning meeting will be held on Sunday May 6th at 2:30 pm at Mimmos Pizza & Restaurant, 46 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre. If you are unable to attend, out of town classmates are encouraged to participate via our FaceBook Group “1978 O’Reilly Graduates” or our dedicated Class Reunion website.
