It will be from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Washington Club in Penns Grove. The cost is $20.00 per person with a cash bar. The food was great last year and so was the company. Could you please pass this information on to all of your PGHS alumni friends on facebook etc. and in your regular email lists? It would really help a lot. Also the tickets are available at Lapps, Lou's Sunoco, Colonial Liquors, Rudy's Sporting Goods in Pennsville, the PGHS library, from Grace Cannavo, Dave Gallagher, Howard Hoover and Michele Landew. Even if you yourself can't come to the party, please pass on the info to your friends. We hope to have a full house like last year.
