Clason Point Reunion 2011
reunion was held on Sat.
July 16, 2011
at Reis Park in Somers, NY
Howie Johnson ran the Clason Point reunions for the past 10 years. He
loved people and he loved getting friends and family together at these
reunions. Those of us who knew him also knew how much time and effort he
personally put into organizing these reunions. Howie had been suffering
from lung cancer for over a year, and in spite of his agonizing
treatments and illness, he still personally organized the July, 2011
reunion. He purchased the food and beverage, cooked and cleaned up. It
was his way of saying goodbye to all of us who attended. Now it will be
up to someone else to carry the torch for any future reunions. Until
then, we all have great memories of past reunions thanks to Howie
Johnson. Heaven now has a new Clason Point reunion organizer. Iím sure
Mike Clark, Joey Donellian, Butchie Vena, Chuck Malara, Richie Buran,
and all the other souls, too many to mention, from Clason Point who have
left us will attend.
in peace Howie and thanks for the memories.
