Frank DeLorenzo's Leonia Memorial Dinner | Dante's Italian Restaurant | Saturday, 03. March 2018

The NJ Memorial to our friend FRANK DeLORENZO will start at St. John's, where the 5pm Mass is being said in his name. After that, Dinner at Dante's. Frank, who grew up in Leonia, was very involved in the town while he lived here. He was the leader of the 5pm Folk Mass at St. John's in the 70s, was on the Parish Council for a bit, and of course, was the leader of BSA Troop 61 for many years. . He was also involved in the Players Guild for many years: Dauntless in ONCE UPON A MATTRESS, the Wood y Allen part in PLAY IT AGIN SAM, DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY & more. He wrote an original musical version of ROBIN HOOD that was first presented as a Children's show at the Guild...so popular, that they had to add an additional performance to accomodate the crowd. Later, the show was expaned & present at St. John's in 2/1974. The next year, his SIR BOSS was presented at St. John's Frank graduated from Anna C. Scott School, and when in 4th grade (I think) he entered & won a contest for the School Song, which is still the official School song all these years later...and a gradute of LHS. Everyone that knew Frank is welcome to join us. SAVE THE DATE & we will start taking reservations after 1/15/18.
