Valley Reunion in Saraosta in June

Sam and Donna Fornsaglio and Kevin and Anita Pestian of Sarasota, Fla., formerly of Steubenville, are inviting all Ohio Valley current and former residents to their fifth Valley Reunion to be held June 13-14 in Sarasota.

Social gatherings are held both days in addition to a golf outing that Saturday morning for men and women. Trophies will be awarded for different flights.

Thirty-eight people from nine states attended last year’s event, including from Nevada, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, Ohio, West Virginia, Georgia and Arizona.

Nine different OVAC school graduates attended.

Golf champions last year were: men, Otto Jack, first flight (Catholic Central); second flight, Nick Faccinto (Steubenville High School); women’s first flight champ, Fran Jack (Toronto High School); and second flight, Carolyn DeLuca Constantine (Catholic Central).

“These reunions are so much fun to reunite valley people and valley spirit,” Fornsaglio said. “You can take the people out of the valley, but you can’t take the valley out of the people. I know these reunions go on all over the country. We wanted you to know, we carry valley spirit down here in Sarasota,” Fornsaglio said.
