Golden Ramblers Reunite for Special Reunion Mass & Dinner

On Saturday, September 9, Ramblers from the Classes of 1952 to 1968 and Rambler parents of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and early 00s gathered for a special Golden Rambler Reunion. Among the attendees were roughly 10 members from the Class of 1953, celebrating their 70th reunion!
The evening began with Mass in the Chapel celebrated by Loyola Academy President Rev. Gregory J. Ostdiek, SJ. After Mass, guests enjoyed dinner in the McGrath Family Performing Arts Center where a new painting of Pope Francis, donated by Mike Cannizzaro '67, was on display. During this time, Dick Devine '61, who is not only a classmate but also a parent and grandparent of Ramblers, delivered a poignant message where he emphasized that Loyola isn't just a place to receive an education, but a place where individuals can leave a lasting legacy.

Director of Alumni Relations Ashley Sanks '10 also addressed the group. She spoke about the enduring sense of community that binds our Golden Ramblers, highlighting that the connections they forged during their four years at Loyola have proven to be timeless. 

A special thanks to our reunion committee members for helping to make this unforgettable night possible: Ann and Frank O'Hara P '91, '93, '00; Charie and Jim Shea P '80, '83, '83, '82, '86, '91; Jim Hogan '56; Tom Kloempken '56; Marty Lane '60 P '92; and George Sullivan '62, P '00, '04. 

The Loyola Academy alumni network continues to play a vital role in the school’s success. Our Golden Ramblers, especially, exemplify the meaningful experiences and deep connections forged between Ramblers during their time at the Academy. Thank you, Ramblers! Your enduring sense of community and unwavering Rambler spirit have left a lasting legacy that continues to shape our community.
