CBA Class of 1966 Jubilee Reunion Weekend
Members of the class of 1966 gathered June 3-5 to celebrate their 50th Golden Jubilee Reunion.
The weekend kicked-off with a formal dinner on Friday night in the Callahan Gym, attended by close to 50 Jubilarians, many guests, CBA staff and administration and former teachers, Br. Stephen Olert and Br. Carl Malacalza. Memories were shared, connections re-kindled, and a strong spirit of ‘Brotherhood” transcended the space.
On Saturday afternoon, the Jubilarians gathered for a picnic at Clark Reservation. Classmate Lance Cimino arranged for a live band to entertain the group with songs from their era. More than 60 revelers enjoyed barbecue fare, dancing, and continued storytelling.
Many of the reunion-goers joined the Class of 2016 and their families for the Baccalaureate Mass, celebrated by the Most Rev. Robert J. Cunningham, at Immaculate Conception Church in Fayetteville on Saturday evening. The service was highlighted by readings and songs performed by CBA seniors. The deceased members of the Class of 1966 were honored and remembered.
The Class of 2016 Commencement Ceremony on Sunday was the capstone event of the weekend. Close to 30 members of the Jubilee Class were included in the formal procession and were presented with a gift-a ceramic paperweight/coaster – designed and created, collaboratively, by CBA engineering and art students.
John Barry, representing the Golden Jubilee Class, presented a check in the amount of $167,590 to President Br. Joseph Jozwiak, to establish a perpetual scholarship named for the Class of 1966. This gift, the largest ever received from a Jubilee class, will provide deserving students an opportunity to continue the legacy of hard work, discipline, and excellence that was forged by ‘Brothers’ who have gone before them.
