DHS and Alumni Gather and Celebrate
                                           

Instead of responding to the summons of school bells in September, the Sisters of the Province were invited to gather with alumni from Annhurst College and Putnam Catholic Academy for an annual reunion. 

The Annhurst group met at the Holy Spirit Pavilion in Putnam where they enjoyed snacks and lunch catered by the LaChance Family.  There were opportunities to chat, to reminisce, to remember those alum who had gone to the Lord since last year’s reunion, to purchase Annhurst logoed items and to plan for future get togethers. Special acknowledgement and honors were offered to the oldest alum in attendance from the class of 1943. As part of their business meeting the Alumni Association body unanimously approved a donation of $1000.00 to the DHS Annual Development Fund Drive, a gesture that is sincerely appreciated by the Sisters. 

The Putnam Catholic Academy alumni group began their special day by gathering at the chapel of the Provincial House for the Sunday liturgy that was offered for them and their individual intentions. They then proceeded to Hank’s Restaurant in Brooklyn, CT for lunch and a fun time together.

Recognition certificates were given to those celebrating 65, 60, 55 and 45 years as alumni with a special mention and gift for Lois Grace Brelsford who graduated 74 years ago and who faitfhfully attends the annual reunion.

A potpourri of photos of each group underlines the good and happy times celebrated by all in attendance and clearly reflects the family spirit and the genuine feeling of belonging that all particpants radiated on these happy occasions. Truly the spirit shared over the years in classrooms at both institutions of learning lives on in and through each graduate and teacher. Together we proudly hail the tradition of success and caring that continues to motivate and to inspire all of us today and into the future.
