Prep Reunion 2009

A crowd of more than 120 alumni gathered to celebrate the 15th annual Assumption Prep Reunion in September.

The keynote speaker was Ray LaPorte ’69, who shared the antics that went on with his classmates in the late 60s, as well as the quality educational experience he received at Assumption Prep. His recollections transcended the varied classes represented. During the reunion, the Class of '69 recognized Fr. Phil Bonvouloir, A.A. '48 for his service as headmaster.

The emcee was Moe Boisvert AP’62, who provided humorous tales mixed in with special memories of his days as a student. The day's highlight event was a presentation on the economy by Roger Joseph '69 and John Wolkonowicz '69. Roger is an investment lawyer with Bingham and McCutchen LLP in Boston and John an auto industry analyst for IHS Global Insight in Lexington. Both are industry experts and quoted regularly in various media. They shared information about the global economic downturn and how that affected the auto industry and vice versa.
