Calling all Old Joes & Old Peterites in Canada & USA

Posted on 15 September 2014 by admin

Join the Saints as they go marching in!

This is the appeal made to the alumni of St. Joseph's College and St. Peter's College who are now domiciled in Canada and USA. The only joint alumni association for the Joes and Peterites is based in Toronto and had its humble beginnings in 1984. Thirty long years have gone by – but the association still stands firm held by the strength, commitment and loyalty of Old Boys who attended the two schools.

JPAA Canada President Upali Obeyesekere has this message to all Old Boys of the two schools:

"We warmly invite you to join the Saints as we go Marching In on Saturday, October 4th to celebrate our 30th anniversary year. With the music of ZEROX and dynamic DJ – GROOVE all the way from USA – the Joes and Peterites will make this celebration, a memorable occasion. So, please join us to celebrate this momentous event. We started this association in 1984 with all sincerity with one objective in mind – to foster the bonds of fellowship and camaraderie amongst us. To this end, we have done just that and has acted as a catalyst in creating new friendships built on fundamental values we learn in the hallways and corridors of our Alma Mater. Shed aside any misconceptions you may have about the association or the people who run it. We are only trying very hard to keep the association alive so that we can continue our good work and help our Alma Mater in our own small way.

Warmest regards and on behalf of Dance Committee Chair Jerome Fernandez and our team we wish you well."
