2019 Golf Outing Recap

After last year’s clear and sunny EC Spring Golf Outing, we had high hopes for this year’s event on Monday, May, 13, 2019.  Sadly, what we experienced may have been the worst weather ever for an EC Golf Outing with temperatures in the 40’s and constant (at times heavy) rain.  But it didn’t matter. The…

We Found The Beef!

The EC community braved some of the coldest temperatures of the year last Wednesday and made their way to The Brownstone in Paterson, NJ. This year we had 52 more guests than last year and there were many new faces in the crowd. Better attendance was not the only thing that was different this year.…

Alumni Chapel Recap

Four years ago, Eastern Christian High School held the first Thanksgiving Alumni Chapel. Knowing that many recent graduates were home for the holiday and often stopped in at the high school to visit old friends and teachers, it was suggested that a formal alumni event be held. That year a small group of alumni came…

Homecoming 2018

Eastern Christian students, faculty, alumni and friends had another spectacular HomEComing weekend on October 19 and 20, 2018. We began the weekend with a new event this year:  Alumni & Friends Golf at Wallkill Golf Club. A cold morning start would not discourage our 40 golfers.  The clear skies and bright sunshine made it a…

A Teacher’s Influence

I entered the Eastern Christian Junior High School on 8th Street in Prospect Park in September, 1968. Yes, even I can do that math quickly. 50 years ago this fairly short, skinny, but still cocky 12 year old went from being a big time 6th grader to being a lowly 7th grader. One of my…

EC Auction Gala 2018

The EC Spring Gala was held on Thursday, April 19, 2018.  It took us a week to write the Thank You Notes, put the empty baskets and sponsor signs into storage, and to declutter our offices, but we knew immediately that the event was a great success. With over 300 guests in attendance, we had…

Ringing the Bell

In my office, hanging on the wall, is a large bell with a braided cord hanging from the clapper. It is a quality bell, so when I pull on the cord, there is a loud, resonating ring that can be heard in other offices and even downstairs. I love to ring that bell, but I’m…

EC Auction Gala 2017

Last Thursday, April 20th, at the Indian Trail Club, records were broken, enthusiasm was catching and one of our families is headed to Disney. With over 345 guests in attendance EC’s Auction Gala ushered in a new era of online bidding before and during the Silent Auction. No more bid sheets thanks to our partnership…
