Explorers Gather for 68th Annual Father-Son Banquet
Over 500 La Salle students, fathers, grandfathers, guardians, faculty, staff, and administration gathered at The Fuge on November 16th.
The 68th Annual Father/Son Banquet was held on November 16th at The Fuge in Warminster.
Following 33 years at Williamson's Restaurant in Horsham, the event moved a few miles away to the former Johnsville Naval Air Development Center, specifically to the building that housed the Aviation Medical Acceleration Laboratory and is home to one the largest and most powerful human centrifuges in the world.
A room that once trained astronauts such as Alan Sheppard, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and John Glenn played host to a new generation of Explorers as over 500 La Salle students, fathers, grandfathers, guardians, faculty, staff, and administration enjoyed the event and new venue.
The attendees heard Pat Gallen, a Feature Reporter from CBS3 who had recently done a story on the school's swimming program, use his energy, creativity, and dynamic story-telling skills to speak about the path that led him through a variety of media outlets and to his current position. He encouraged students to overcome the pain of disappointment and take advantage of the countless opportunities that they are afforded each day.
