Over 200 members of the Kellenberg Memorial family took part in the school’s Alumni Spirit Day, an annual, fun-filled event for the whole family which precedes the Homecoming Football game, on Sunday, September 18th, 2016.
The day began with a Family Mass concelebrated by Fr. Albert Bertoni, S.M. and Fr. Philip Eichner, S.M. The Gregorian Consortium, Kellenberg Memorial’s liturgical music group, led the Mass in song and members of the Varsity Football team were present to bestow wooden crosses upon all the children in attendance.
After Mass, families went out to the field where all of the future Firebirds enjoyed a fun day of games, arts and crafts, face painting, balloon animals, inflatable water slides, obstacle courses, bounce houses, and visits with the animals in the Kellenberg Zoo. A barbeque lunch was served in the Queen of the Apostle Courtyard.
Tina (Manzo) Caliendo ‘92 reflected on the day, saying, “My years at Kellenberg were some of the best years of my life. To be able to return with my entire family for Alumni Spirit Day and share with them that experience in some way is truly a gift! Thank you for a day filled with fun, food, and family!”
The festivities continued at 3:00 PM at Kellenberg’s homecoming football game at Mitchel Field, where the Varsity Firebirds beat Mount St. Michael Academy 21-20 in front of an electrified crowd of over 1,000 fans.
