Hosted by owners Gaspar '81, Anthony '79, and Paul DeSimone '76, this event brought together alumni of the former La Salle Military Academy and provided them with an opportunity to catch up with former teachers and to hear how the Christian Brothers’ tradition continues on Long Island at The De La Salle School in Freeport.
In attendence were Brothers: William Mann, Anthony Scotto, Richard Lalime, Thomas Casey. There were several other alumni there: Marcantonio Marano '90, Sean Rose '90 and Marty Bevilacqua '77.
The LSMA Alumni Association and The De La Salle School are grateful to the Desimone's for their hospitality.
