Friday, Nov 26 - Time again for a game of work-off-the-turkey-and-stuffing football.

All ages...all abilities. Even Tim.

11:00 AM Kick Off

Memorial Field

And if you're planning on playing for the Saturday fundraiser flag football event, you can work on your moves on Friday...

And we'll surely be tweeting the game...and be on the lookout for instant replay youtube videos of the post game nap time.

Andy Cleff

Kick off pushed up to 10AM...otherwise the game time would run into our nap time...

Some of us managed to show up at 10AM.

Game time however was delayed due to the late arrival of our event coordinators - Sullivan and O'Connor.

Boy, are we getting better looking each year.

Wow- I found this web site by accident. It brings a feeling of nostalgia as I reminisce about all my classmates from '78, and my half-a-century crawling in this world we call Gaia.  It only seems like yesterday that I was an editor of the the MHS Nutshell magazine as I wrote literature for Ms. Fine's English class, which let me to it. Ms. Fine insisted for me to become involved in the school's literary magazine, which I succumbed not without a feeling of insecurity and doubt at first.


But I am such a different person now - full of life and self-assurance - being a successful entrepreneur and inventing technology ahead of our times.


Anyway, I am happy I found this MHS site to see how my classmates have developed over the many years.


GOD bless you all,
Mauricio Solórzano,

I belong to Bikers Against Child Abuse, and have been with them for about 4 years. Because I teach fencing also, I was given the road named of "Zorro" by my bike's club. I've been told that I am quiet, but deadly, like Zorro, ha, ha, ha ... :-)

Anyway, because of my involvement with BACA, I might find it a bit difficult to attend the 35th reunion coming up in June, 2013. BUT, if I don't show up, I hope y'all (notice my Texan drawl) have a wonderful time.cool

I was brought up in the slumps of Mexico City. My grandmother who brought me
up didn't have the money to purchase a cape and a hat for me. For many children,
their action heroes might be Super Man, Captain America, or even spider man.
But not for me. I wanted to become an action  hero riding on his horse, with his 
cloak and hat flapping in the wind. No, not the Lone Ranger, although I must admit, 
that sounds quite enticing living in Texas. No, I wanted to become a dark figure, 
maybe silent, but deadly. Not concealing a weapon, but covering my face, kind of like
Batman does. My weapon of choice the foil, rapier, epée, or the cold and steely
From that time on, I really never grew up. I was encased in a dream world where
children are found. The action hero was my comfort and guide, always remembering
that reality is thinner than air. So for a child to understand an adult, you have to
be one of them. You have to bend down to their higher level when you speak to them,
and you have to become a person who will defend them and protect them from
all adversities, just like an action hero does.
We are bikers, action heroes of flesh and bones, ready to stand between them and
the dark force, Darth Vader, and his cronies. Except that the evil beings are not
in the movies and have to be dealt with the sharp Sabre of justice.
Now my child dream has come true and I ride on a glittering iron horse, once again
to defend those in need, those who are good, innocent, and precious. NOTHING stands
in my way. I am at the ready to unsheathe my sword, which is my strength and
determination to succeed in comforting as much as empowering kids to dream
once again and become the children that they are. They don’t have to grow up
now and deal with the filthiness of adult life.
If everyone were children, we all would settle world conflicts over a game of
capture the flag, kick the can, Hopscotch, Jump-Rope and Double Dutch,
or Hide and Seek, and NOT with war.
So when someone calls me silly, childish, or even an idiot for dressing up as Zorro,
I feel that that is the best accolade anybody can say to me -  I have left my mark.
I leave you with this humble word:
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said:
“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never
enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this
child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such
child in my name welcomes me.

HEY, Sorry I missed the reunion. I actually just logged on to find out where to go for the reunion ( somehow I thought it would be over Thanksgiving).  Hope all had a great time. SEE YOU AT THE 40th?  I'll try to be on time for that one.

Brendan O'Connor

To My Dear Friends and Classmates,
A rare occasion it is when I am left speechless. But I was struck dumb when Shawn Sullivan and Andy Cleff revealed my classmate's generosity. Thank you for your kind wishes and sentiments. Just those would have been enough. (I cannot even write this note without my throat tightening and my eyes welling up)
Please know....I served because I love my Country, my home, my family and my friends. I endured the rigors of duty for the chance that our future generations might enjoy the best hope this world has for approaching the ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our nation, with all its faults, is still the best experiment going. I have served alongside fine Americans across the Cold War, the Drug War and the Global War on Terror. I have served in conventional and elite formations from both the United States and of our Coalition Allies. They have been of many colors and from all creeds and we fought, bled and died for one another, in spite of those differences. It is not at all trite when I say I have served in the Company of Heroes. These things have been my reward.
Being who I am, and consistent with whom you may remember me to be,I spent nearly 40 years doing what it takes most others only 20 years to do. (Slow on the uptake I guess)

As soon as I can gather myself....I will place something on our MHS 78 web-thingy that will try, but ultimately fail to express my family's humbled gratitude.

Thank You Again,
Brendan O'Connor

Brendan's story is nothing short of amazing.  I truly admire the unflinching loyalty, respect and deep love that his family has for him.  It was an honor to be at his retirement party.  And what a treat to be able to spend the day with so many old friends! After all these years our class remains bonded in such a special way.  Big props to Shawn & Andy for orgainizing the gift effort and to Tim for creating a thoughtful & entertaining video that perfectly captured the day. Love you all!

***Here we have our war hero, in middle school, looking very 70's chic!***

Fred - Brendan's hands are the biggest I've ever seen.  If they were green you would think they were attached to the Hulk!

And yes - Brendan is an amazing person.  Just ask my neighbor.  After meeting him one time wants to adopt him!

Wrong Costello, Russ. ;)

No worries, though.

To Sgt. Major Brendan O'Connor. Many kudos to you and your family! And thank you for the many years if service you have given us, and the memories you have bestowed on Moorestown as well. Your classmates are so proud ... sorry I couldn't be with you on your day. New jobs suck.
