in the 75th year of her religious life.
She is predeceased by her parents, Clement Cahill and
Catherine Cecilia O’Hara,

She will be dearly missed by her sister Patricia Howorth,

Pool Night (Wednesday December 23, 2009) 
was a fun and relaxing night before all the chaos of Christmas kicked in. Thanks to Scott McNally and "the boys" for letting a couple of St. Joe's girls join in the fun and the long tradition of a guys only night. Maybe now that Marg and Leslie have gotten their feet in the door a few more '78 St. Joe's grads will show up next year.

In attendance for the evening:
Scott McNally, Mark Drury, Sam Ierullo, Gerry Simone,
Frank Baldanza, Mike Smith, Peter Glynn, Frank Canaletti,
Paul Smith, Frank McGrath, Dave Spagnolo, Denis Gubert,
Marg Riley (Maggie Grace),Pat Grace,
Leslie Corrigan (Hudson), Jeff Hudson

sorry no pictures....no one brought a camera:(

Come on out the evening of
Saturday November 28, 2009
Mulligans Pub
2428 Dundas Street West, Mississauga (Woodchester Plaza)
Image
Every year Mulligans Pub , the Peel Police department and the Large Big Guys hockey team provide a weekend of entertainment and fundraising in aid of Toys for Tots. It's hard to think that in 2009, poverty or misfortune can spoil such a joyous time of year. Yet every Christmas there are young children that go without ...the little pleasures that the season provides. With your help in the past we have been able to raise incredible amounts of money for this worthy cause. Please join us on November the 28th for an all star studded line-up of performers. The band will be rockin' and there are tons of raffles prizes and party favours ! We sure hope you can make it !
 
P.S. The band consists of Mitch Lewis , Glyn Stephens , Gary Taylor, Denis Keldie, John Panchyshyn, Howard Moore and yours truly
Kevin Phillips.

OMG....I can't believe I am now half-a-century young.
I had a very "Hippie Birthday". Family and friends indulged me with a far out party and came in groovy threads for the occasion. If you haven't guessed it by now....we like to entertain. Peace man!

Don't any other grads have any fun, trips or occasions
