Project after project, from cookbooks to spice sets, to a student Dance-a-Thon raising $10,000, proceeded successfully climaxing with an Alumni Homecoming Weekend held in May 1983 to mark the seventieth birthday of St. Peter’s Secondary School.  ” (History of St. Peter’s High School)

    I have been advised that Frank Russell has suffered a heart attack and is a patient at the Oshawa hospital. Let’s pray that this will be a time for Russell to acknowledge the damage he has done and reach out to a and apologize to his victims.
