POST-GAZE'rzrE' O(TOBER 25, 21113 Page 5 Whatever Happened to East Boston High School Class of "56? by Sal Giarratani Class of '56 East Boston High School was a neighborhood high school back in 1956 and have held a class reunion every five years since gradu- ation day and are now already planning for their 60 th reunion in 2016. Many of them have gotten to- gether as a group every few months too. Graduates re- turn to East Boston to dine at their 55 th anniversary back in 2011. at numerous East Boston restaurants. Many of these Eastie graduates have gone on to become teachers, sci- entists, fire fighters, police officers and business folks. By now many have retired from their professions but not from life. This band of brothers and sisters who started out on their life's adult journey after graduating from East Boston High School are getting together on Novem- ber 6 th at the Port Hole Pub on the Lynnway. The Class of '56 is still alive and kicking so says my friend Lois Bartolomi (Class of '56) who is now a retired Boston teacher and waiting for November 6 th on the Lynnway. www.depasc NEAD's SUPER DUCK Tour The NEAD gang getting ready to board the Duck Boat. The North End Against Drugs took 40-plus family members, mostly children who go to the Nazzaro Cen- ter After School Program who performed at Pride Day and their parents on a SUPER DUCK TOUR. Thanks to good friend, North End native and former Boston City Councilor Paul Scapicchio and his friends at Diversified Auto and Super Duck Tours, the children and their parents were treated to an 1.5 hour land and sea tour. The highlight of the trip was the splash down into Boston Harbor. They enjoyed a glorious day, had a lot of fun and even learned a thing or two about the Revolutionary War that we did not know. North End Against Drugs is extremely grateful to Dennis PINELLIS UNCTION FACILITY" Specializing in the art of celebration Wedding, Anniversary, Quinceaera, Reunion, Birthday, Social and Corporate Events.
