Saturday, November 10th at 3:00 PM

Hi EMPEHI Pizza Lovers,

It's getting to be that time again; oh sure, the leaves need raking and the gutters have to be cleaned out and Thanksgiving is fast approaching, but, it's also time for a Pizza Get-Together; before things get too hectic with holiday plans, etc. We had such a great time at Palermo's last month and some of us thought we should try Lou Malnati's in Naperville again. We did that over a year ago, remember?

So, mark your calendars for Saturday, November 10th at 3:00 PM at Lou Malnati's in beautiful downtown Naperville at 131 West Jefferson Avenue; 630-717-0700 .  

This is open to anybody who loves Pizza or who wants to get away for part of a day and have some stimulating conversation and good tasting food. We always have a great time.

Please send me an e-mail if you're planning to attend so we can make reservations accordingly.

Thanks and hope to see you on November 10th.

Have fun. Have a slice for all of us who cannot make it.

Glenn N. Klipp       Is that actually joe stepanek?

Gayle Teller    Coach looks good!

Will Hepburn    The coach wouldn't remember me. I was that little greasy spot in the grass after Hugh Lee hit me in 1963 - just before I moved over to the swim team. How old is he these days?

Marika K. LaSorsa   Looking good!

Mimi Williams   You both look good!

Dan Findley    Gotta forward to Roger.

Rosemary Scardina    Coach taught me how to drive; and I still remember him telling me merger doesn't mean stop!

Gail Stepanek    Joe has enjoyed all your comments and you would be surpised at how much he remembers about all of you......yes, even you, Will. LOL

Richard Voris     I was his coffee boy. Gave me a pass and went down to the Coffee shop next to the RR tracks for a large to get out of swimming. (naked.) I'm Irish and next to the bros ,well .you get the idea.Never had to swim. TMI ? LOL

Gail Stepanek   Richard...that wasn't Joe. He never sent anyone out for coffee nor did he give anyone a break from swim class.

Edward Drumm   Was that the pass made out of wood? with the word Pass? and a chain?

Gail Stepanek   Edward...Coach says it never got lost or stolen.

Edward Drumm    That's right. We always put it back, just were we found it:) But we had to pay the price... figure 8's on stairs.

Morgan Park High   Coach Stepanek and Jim Nesci, Looking Good

RiverView Park

Riverview Park was a great
old Chicago Amusement Park. Many of us scared the daylights out of ourselves and our dates on the rides.

100 Year Starship™ Initiative

100 Year Starship™ will make the capability of human travel beyond our solar system to another star a reality over the next 100 years. 100YSS™ will embark on a journey across time and space … If my language is dramatic, it is because this project is monumental. And our team is both invigorated and sobered by the confidence DARPA has in us to make interstellar flight a reality.
