Letters to the Editor
Calling All Micks!
G'Day from FRANK
The LETTERS EDITOR.
The CYO, Catholic Youth Organisation was a Catholic Church sponsored Sporting and Cultural group of teenagers.
It was formed after the 1939-1945 war to allow catholic youth to meet and interact with members of the OTHER SEX, and to form long lasting marriages /friendships.
This was post war/pre television/shortages etc., and we had to make our own fun. We conducted football/ netball competitions, ran picnics, sometimes chartering railway carriages to travel to picnic venues.
We also conducted dances and Sydney wide concerts which were held in the Trocadero Ballroom (now defunct).
There were also branch Debutante Balls, where the debs were presented to prominent members of the local gentry.
Hows that for a brief resume.
It was a lot of fun. I met my first wife at one of these functions and we were married for 33 years before she died.
We are not trying to revive the CYO, but just have a good time remembering.
Last year we had our FIRST REUNION for 25 years. It was such a success that attending members asked for another one.
This year it will be held in
DOOLEYS LIDCOMBE CATHOLIC CLUB,
JOHN STREET LIDCOMBE 2141
On SATURDAY 21-10-2006 from 2.00pm until 5.00pm.
Members are then free to either go home or to continue their reminiscing.
If you could find room in your column for this article we would be very grateful.
This function is now open to all former CYO /YOUNGER SET Members, from wherever you belonged, to bring some of your friends with you and renew old memories.
57 YARRAM STREET
LIDCOMBE NSW 2141
Over the years members have lost touch with each other and we are trying to reach as big an audience as possible.
Could you please find space in your column for this item?
