v  Class of '53 Luncheon   - Following is the luncheon schedule for 2017:

  • January 9 (Cancelled due to heavy rains)
  • March 13
  • May8
  • July 10
  • September 11
  • November 13

The lunches will be at 11:00am, at the Brothers Family Restaurant.  This is the same location that we have been at for quite some time. Start the New Year out right with a lot of fun and good camaraderie. As most of us have already hit 80 (give or take a few) in 2016, come and reminisce about old times. Our numbers are dwindling and the love and support we give each other is very rewarding.

v Kearny Komet Dinner - All Kearny Komet's are welcome. We plan to get together the second Thursday of every month. You are allowed to hug and kiss, to a point. It's really to keep our family going. Most of us have known each other and/or have been together for many years so may as well stay together a while longer. Now you won't have to ask, "Hey whatever happened to ole what's his name?" Most likely "Ole what's his name" will be at the dinner. Anyway, just a little get together so we can enjoy each others company. If you have any questions, you can email Jerry Pondelicek at

Don't forget, if you don't play and would like to help, you can sponsor a hole or make a donation to the scholarship fund.
