Important Announcements Concerning All Mendel Alumni  
ONE MENDEL-ALL ERAS

At the Mendel Foundation’s October 24, 2013 Board of Directors meeting, the Board unanimously authorized that a formal invitation be extended to the Alumni Association headed by Jack Vlazny, and it’s HOF Selection Committee headed by Bob Napoli, to merge with the Foundation to create “One Mendel.” On Wednesday, after months of talking about how to make this idea a reality, Bob and Jack formally accepted that invitation, and are now members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors. This is truly a merger of equals in every way that finally makes “One Mendel, All Eras—Monarchs United as Brothers” a reality. Now the structure is in place to begin to move forward in unison. In the months ahead links between the web sites will be created, and the Hall of Fame will be migrated to a Virtual Hall for all Alumni and their families to enjoy.

Both the Alumni Association, and it’s HOF Selection Committee, will continue to operate as independent parts of the Foundation, but will soon enjoy our tax-exempt status. They will continue to do all of the things, and host all of the events, that they have in the past, and will continue to be inclusive of Alumni from all eras, as has long been Bob and Jack’s expressed desires and commitment. The new Foundation Board will be appointed in December, and ALL Alumni from ALL eras are invited to submit their resumes/cv’s/bio’s to Fred Bates at fhayzeb@aol.com ASAP if they are interested and committed. (All who have been involved in the Leadership of the organizations and their committees will continue in their roles within the AA, Foundation & HOF Selection Committee).

Our plan is to expand our purpose beyond awarding scholarships to students at Augustinian High Schools in Illinois, to include other charitable purposes such as assisting the Augustinians, as the Alumni Association and former Men of Tolentine organization had done. (Most of us strongly supported that effort in the past, irrespective of organizational affiliations). The social aspects of the Alumni Association with continue under Jack’s leadership, with his current leadership team.

Congratulations to Jack Vlazny & Bob Napoli, for bringing everyone together under one Mendel umbrella!

            All Class Reunion

The 2014 ALL CLASS REUNION will be held on the Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov 28th at 6pm at the Lexington House. More information about the costs will follow when the menu has been finalized. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE! Any questions ... email Ron Dubin rondmendel63@hotmail.com

Scholarships Awarded to Augustinian High School Students

We are also pleased to announce that Mendel Foundation Scholarships in the amount of $1,000.00 were recently awarded to St. Rita and Providence High Schools to be given to descendants of Mendel graduates.

      New Hall of Fame Selection Committee

Bob Napoli’s Committee has been restructured and now includes:

Bob Napoli, Chair ‘58
Joe Palumbo, Secretary ‘71
Fr. Bill Sullivan ‘59
Art Moreno ‘57
John Farris ‘68
Jack Gavin ‘74
Ben McCall ‘77

A new Hall of Fame Nomination form is being developed, and the Committee is committed to creating a Virtual Hall of Fame. A portion of the proceeds raised at the 2013 Evening of Champions event will be utilized to help support this effort, and while it is the Committee’s hope to be able to announce new members at All Class Reunions, future inductions will return to being stand-alone events.
