In an effort to keep up contact with all of the young men who have spent some of their days at St. John’s Home, we have an Alumni Association. The Alumni Liaison, La-Tanya Desvarieux, invites all former St. John’s Home residents to send in their names, addresses, email, and other information so that they may be added to the mailing list if they are not already on it.
Those on the mailing list receive “Echoes of the Home”, a newsletter from the Alumni Association highlighting information about the alumni as well as activities that St. John’s has several times during the year. These activities ring together the alumni and their families so they can enjoy fellowship with former residents
St. John’s alumni list also includes former staff members. We invite them to send in their information so that they might be included on the mailing list for the newsletter.
The Alumni Association is eager to hear from former residents and staff. Do you have any stories you would like to share? La-Tanya Desvarieux would be delighted to get them and include them in the newsletter.
Since the start up of our website, we have received a good number of positive and enthusiastic comments from many folks, especially alumni. We hope to have our ALUMNI section serve as a “Bulletin Board” through which members of the alumni can let people know how they are doing and where they are doing it. So this is an invitation to you. Send us whatever you think would interest the readers: stories, pictures, news releases, etc. We plan to keep the website exciting and different by sharing the items you send to us. Send them through email or snail mail. We will do the editing and post them on the site.
