History of the St. Andrew’s Parish High School ALMA MATER
Thanks to Steve Sopko ‘64
The music and many words of our Alma Mater came from a musical comedy called
"THE PRINCE OF PILSEN" which opened in Boston in 1902. The actual song was the
HEIDELBERG STEIN SONG from that score - but only the "REFRAIN" passage is our
entire Alma Mater (words adjusted).
The phrase in the song "HERE'S TO" repeatedly is what the Germans do when
standing around a piano, etc., to salute by hoisting their steins of beer - basically just
about anything you could think of ......... as .... each "HERE'S TO" got them another
large drink of beer from their steins.
As the story goes (pretty well substantiated) ----- Dennis Lee of the Classes of 64 and
65 and until his death in 2012 was owner of one of the biggest alcohol distributors in
Charleston - well, his father was with his father in Germany in/around the early '40's.
They fell for the taste of German Pilsner and thought they would arrange to have it
exported to Charleston and to their company. Also - they brought back a song they had
heard/sung in the pilsner houses and as Dennis Lee’s dad was in the first classes when
St. Andrew’s High was first formed - this refrain from the song was lifted, words were
adjusted and it became the Alma Mater.
Robert Blocker ’64, Dean of the Yale School of Music, used the actual music in the
attached original score to write the music sheets for the Yale Chous so as to be exactly
true to the original melody.
ST. ANDREW'S PARISH HIGH SCHOOL ALMA MATER
Here's to the land that gave us birth,
Here's to the flag she flies.
Here's to our sons, the best on earth,
Here's to her smiling skies.
Here's to our Alma Mater dear,
True as the stars above,
Here's to our faith and honor dear,
Here's to the school we love.
St. Andrew's School, St. Andrew's School,
We never shall forget.
The golden haze of student days
is 'round about us yet.
The days of yore will come no more,
But thru the future years
The thought of you, so good, so true ,
Will fill our eyes with tears.
The thought of you, so good, so true,
Will fill our eyes with tears
[08/29/16] We have a suggestion for having a Memorial Board at the reunion. I think it is a great idea! If you know of someone in our class that has passed on, bring a photo or two and anything you may want to say and we can post it at the reunion. If you know of someone but may not be able to come to the reunion or need help, let us know. You can send photos and notes to me, 742 Tallwood Road Chas, SC 29412
In trying to find our classmates to notify them of the reunion we are saddened to find that some have passed on. Just found this obituary for Pinkey Lockey: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/charleston/obituary.aspx?pid=153999668

IMPORTANT UPDATE (please share)
Hi everyone… We hope your summer is going well. We wanted to update you on the Class of 76 Reunion plans. To date we have had approx. 25 responses to our Facebook messages regarding a September get together. Our plan is still to have a get together for those who are interested and can attend. We will be finalizing a restaurant type place within the next few weeks where we plan on meeting around 4pm on September 24th. If you haven’t done so, please forward this to those you may feel would like to attend.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Butch & Karen
Butch and I (Karen Sillivant Dilbeck) talked earlier and noted that the general consensus for a reunion weekend is September 23/24.
NOW, we need to find a place to gather informally--a place that we can be casual, chat and just hang out with each other for a few hours....possibly Saturday afternoon/early evening. If you know of such a place, please send a private message.
Also, we only have 29 people on this page. Since no one person is officially "LOOKING" for classmates, each of us needs to reach out to others...who do YOU keep up with....?
General vague consensus is that we are leaning towards September 23 weekend for a reunion. NOW we need a place (or a couple of places)
Suggestions...? (Jayne Johnson? Scott Ferguson? Ellen Lipton?)
So Butch--you know, the guy that we elected to be our senior class president when we were 16/17 years old...yeah him--well, after complaining that NO ONE told him when he was 17 that he'd be responsible for planning a 40th high school reunion, he revealed that he wouldn't be able to come in JUNE. Both of us agreed that a Saturday afternoon may be easiest to plan for and if it rolls into that evening it'd be great.
As we chatted we discussed having it the weekend of
September 23 -or- 30 so we could plan.
SO--let's take a consensus: JUNE or SEPTEMBER (or BOTH or NEITHER!)???
Also, if any of you would like to volunteer to organize this thing, it'd be great, as I live in Atlanta, Ga and only get back to Charleston 2-3 times a year. (Karen S)
