It all started when Lee Hoelck wanted to recognize 111 years of service by the Sisters of St. Joseph to the people of Grand Island, Neb.

The May 17 main event, a pancake breakfast after Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral, inspired Father Dowd to organize an afternoon of memories for Grand Island alumni who live in the Denver area. On July 19, a scattering of Central High School grads — from 1950 to 2004 — enjoyed the day, and the company.

Conversations were brightened by stories of the past and by present connections for Denver-area alumni.
