Dear Alumni and Friends,

candidates, he borrowed money, bought a run-

furniture before moving them in on January 2, 1817.

    the generosity of individual, corporate and foundation
    benefactors makes it possible for Central Catholic to educate
    hundreds of students every year and fulfill its mission.
    Donations in the 2006-2007 fiscal year helped offset
    operating costs, provide financial assistance, make building
    improvements and enhance academic and extracurricular
    programs. none of this would be possible without the annual
    gifts of so many alumni, parents, community leaders and
    friends who give at the President’s Circle level.
             Students Darren M. Berrigan ’08 and Christine
    M. Blain ’08 spoke to guests about the benefits of a Central
    Catholic education. Musical entertainment was provided by
    Matthew J. Joyal ’08 on the piano and Ryan W.
    Schmidt ’08 on the guitar. Br. Rene D. Roy, FMS, ’59,
    President, and John F. Shaw III, Chairman of the Board of
    Directors, thanked all those in attendance for their loyalty and
    gifts to Central Catholic and its students.
