All Year Reunion – Recap
The All Year Reunion was held on August 7. Over 120 classmates participated in this years event. The Class of 1970 converted a student produced film in 1970 as a recruitment tool. It was converted to video and projected onto a large screen that drew a large audience. The film is available here on YouTube The group picture below and additional 1970 Class photos are available here

Joseph Tomasulo ’50 Board of Directors passing
On August 19, 2021, we lost the senior classmate of the Bishop Fallon High School & Holy Angels Collegiate Institute Board of Directors, Joseph Tomasulo, HACI Class of 1950. Joe was the Alumni Board’s liaison to Holy Angels Collegiate Institute where the Oblate Education Tradition in Western New York began. He was a long time and active member of the Alumni Board who always had a kind word and smile for those he met. Joe was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2008. He was there when we moved to the new campus on Main St so long ago. Joe would remind us of our roots and then watched as we all experienced the years that followed. (Obituary)
