    UPDATED: ( September 1, 2021 )

    Dear Brothers,
     
    After many months of planning and exchanging stories, photographs, and autobiographies, the reunion committee unanimously decided to delay our celebration to 2022. This decision was not taken lightly and we know it will impact your travel plans and fall commitments. For that, we are sorry. But the COVID risks have not subsided and recent documented cases of transmission among vaccinated seniors has confirmed our decision. As you may know, our own John DeBrincat has recently succumbed to COVID-19.
     
    For those of you who have paid for reunion activities via CC, please consider donating the funds to our “Class of 1961 Scholarship Fund” for qualified need-based tuition assistance. You can discuss that option or you can obtain a refund by contacting Tim Burke, CC’s Director of Development and Alumni Relations, tburke@catholiccentral.net, 248-596-3844.
     
    The work we have completed and the relationships that we rekindled provide a strong foundation for the 2022 celebration. Our committee has gathered about 60 autobiographies, stories, and obituaries that will be combined with many photographs documenting our class’s 60-year journey. 
     
    We plan to publish the 20-page “CC’61 Alumni Book” this fall and it will be available to all classmates and friends through CC’s website after mid-October for a price of $11. You will be able to send a check or pay on-line via credit card. Gary Guerriero is the editor and he will arrange for an initial printing and CC will mail them to you. We have read many of the stories and you will be impressed with the scope and breadth of our classmates’ journeys through life. 
     
    To order a book, visit www.catholiccentral.net/store in mid-October and under “New Items” category you will find the “CC’61 Alumni Book”. While at the store, you can also purchase other CC items.
     
    We will update our book for the fall, 2022 reunion.
     
    Thanks for your understanding and support of this decision and if you are in town, you can visit the CC campus by contacting Tim Burke.
