And Forever the Twain Shall Meet

Although the temperatures resembled those of mid August in New England, there clearly was a fall school reunion feeling in the air as alumni from Putnam Catholic Academy and Annhurst College gathered to celebrate lasting friendships and loyalty to their alma maters on September 11th and 17th respectively.

The PCA reunion at Hank’s Restaurant in Brooklyn, CT was a first for the group that had met for many years at the former JD Cooper Restaurant in Putnam.  It took but a few minutes for the classmates to take to this new venue like fish to water and to proceed seamlessly from there to enjoy one another’s presence, a delightful meal and moments of memory-making celebration and good times.

The Annhurst alumni returned to their well-established and familiar surroundings at the Pavilion on the property of the Provincial House in Putnam. Mary LaChance,her family and committee once again did a superb job of recreating the Annhurst book store where logoed items could be purchased once again. The self-catered luncheon including the celebratory cake was scrumptious and ample and provided a delicious background for sharing with friends and colleagues. Both groups were invited to visit the exhibit on DHS history displayed in the gymnatorium at this time.

The photos are an indication of the comaraderie and unity that continues to thrive among both Associations. If you missed the opportunity to participate this year, mark your calendars now for the PCA reunion on September 24th, 2017 and the Annhurst reunion on Saturday, September 16th.
