In a very different time and under very different circumstances, it remains my pleasure to invite you to a very different Cigar Night on Saturday, September 12th. We have all learned to make accommodations to our normal lives during these difficult months, and I am heartened to see that those adjustments have not dampened the Xaverian spirit of our community. Quite the contrary. Our administration, faculty, students and alumni have persevered through this pandemic and reminded me, once again, of the great things that we do together. This year’s virtual Cigar Night will be another example of that incredible resolve. I am sure you will be pleased to participate.
The first change to the evening is that it has been renamed The Robert Charles Golden ’64 Memorial Cigar Night in honor of one of Xaverian’s greatest sons who sadly passed away in June. I am always reminded and inspired by Bob’s love for our school, but never more than I am on this night, his favorite. I am honored to have counted Bob as my friend and very happy that he will continue to be a part of this wonderful event.
Another of our finest alums, Joe Guarinello ’72, has served as our ebullient host and that will not change. Joe will still share his unique descriptions and expertise about each of the cigars you will receive; only this year, he’ll do it virtually. And yes, to laud another of our wonderfully talented alums, Joe’s cigar tales will be told while you enjoy the five-star dining experience provided by gourmet chef, Michael Ayoub ’74.
