The 51st commencement of the Catholic Memorial School took place at Holy Name Church on Thursday, May 26. An overflow crowd filled the great church as the graduates filed in and took their seats in a reserved front section. Welcoming all and serving as master of ceremonies was principal Richard Chisholm. The salutatory address was presented by Patrick R. Carney and the valedictory by John M. Gaffney. As the exercises came to an end, 144 graduates celebrated with their families and friends outside the church. Next month, the Class of 1961, first to reach 50 years, will come together for a golden jubilee reunion at the school.
