Per Sally Katz prior posting, I found my 1988 Friars Certificate, along with several photos. Here are 2 of them: ‘88 Friars Abbot & Scribe (Jim McLaughlin & Jim Karp) with my fellow ‘89 Friar Chris Ahearn, plus me in between ‘88ers Jim Mikloss & and Greg Catcher. As some have learned over the years, I met my husband “Jimmy Mac” @ the Friars Smoker, but we aren’t pictured together here as we were NOT yet dating...that would come a few days later after ‘88 Friar Chris Flynn’s held an off-campus party. Here’s to all of our great FRIARS memories!! ❤️💙❤️💙 ... See MoreSee Less

PLEASE watch my friend, fellow Penn grad, & Emmy-winning director Jonathan Silvers’ new PBS documentary “Tulsa: The Fire & The Forgotten” this MONDAY evening 5/31, 9pm...check local listings.This new documentary marks the 100th anniversary of “the 1921 tragedy, the history of anti-Black violence, and Black resilience.” It’s an important historical event, yet too few Americans know about it.Jon is an amazing filmmaker who is married to my college roommate Courtney Tuttle C’90.

It's a three-peat Friar occasion: Congratulations to senior Friar Henry Platt who just released his single on Spotify, *Take a Number *(attached) AND was featured in 34th Street (in the comments section) AND is singing the National Anthem at Penn's commencement in two weeks! And yes, he is the same pitch-perfect Friar featured on *Sing On Country* earlier this year. open.spotify.com/track/2Zy5YCIMRYA5EZsoDAergc?si=3HCSZ6FIQhC_fNy1oNdv7Q&dl_branch=1Henry Platt · Song · 2021 ...

I can't thank the Friars alum and current members enough for supporting and donating to the Philly Fights Hunger race. I am so excited to announce that we raised $4,779 to benefit Philabundance by hosting a virtual 5k/10k. We had 250 people who signed up to run and many Friars who came out to run in-person this past Sunday (see pictures)! We could not have done this without you all. And it's not too late to support! If you would like to donate, DM me or Mitchell Cornell for more info. #beethungerSince the pandemic started, food insecurity has risen significantly. With 1 in 5 people facing hunger in the Philadelphia area, it has become a crisis in our community. Philabundance is a non-profit that aims to feed the Philadelphia community and end hunger for good. ... See MoreSee Less
