CBA Celebrates 2018 Century Club Members

Christian Brothers Academy held one of its oldest annual traditions last Wednesday evening: the Century Club celebration.

The Century Club’s origins dates back to the school’s infancy, when then-Principal Brother Bernard McKenna realized that CBA needed to create a fundraising system to offset operating costs. Brother Bernard formed the Century Club, and asked current parents and community members to join the club as a way of raising money for the Academy. The first Century Club Celebration was held in the spring of 1963.

Now, nearly 60 years later, CBA continues Brother Bernard’s endeavor, offering membership to the Century Club to current & past parents, grandparents and friends of the Academy.

On Wednesday night, President Brother Frank Byrne welcomed over 100 members to the CBA campus for an evening of cocktails, dinner and special gift presentations.

Brother Frank recapped another terrific year at the Academy and thanked those in attendance for their continued support of Christian Brothers Academy. The members in attendance also were able to get a glimpse of the Academy today with a viewing of the new admissions video.

Brother Frank presented special gifts to those who have been members of the Century Club for a number of years, including these anniversaries:
