The purpose of this web site is to provide contact information to those of us who graduated from Camden Catholic High School in 1976. Please be sure to forward me your updated email addresses and the email addresses for any classmates whose email addresses are not listed on the Class web page so that I can keep the web page current. Please also forward me information on classmates that have passed away. In order to help prevent unsolicited email ("spam") from being sent to members of our class, "mailto" tags (which make email hyperlinks) have purposely not been included on this web site. This helps prevent spammers from using webcrawling software to retrieve our email addresses for spamming purposes. To email a classmate, simply copy and paste an email address into the address window of your email program. To find the latest additions and revisions to the list, look for flashing "NEW" blinkers ()on the Class web page. Special thanks goes to Peggy Testa Messina, Angelo Sinesi, and Dean Ragone for continuing to provide me with new email addresses of classmates. I have also created a similar class list (here) that has been optimized for classmates finding this website when using various search engines.
The Faculty & Staff web page contains the names the names of all faculty and staff members who worked at CCHS during the 1975/1976 school year. The web page is periodically updated with new and changed email addresses and to report deaths among the former faculty and staff. Special thanks goes to Sr. Pat Kenny, R.S.M. for updating me on information about former faculty.
Any important class announcements will be posted on the Announcements web page. The Announcements web page will also include information on classmates and faculty members that have passed away.
The Links web page contains links to school and classmate related web pages. Please feel free to email me the addresses ("URLs") of your personal, family, photo album and work related web pages.

This web site now includes a Memories section containing web pages for Memorabilia, Yearbook Recollections, and a Sports Scorecard. The Memorabilia web page contains links to class-related memorabilia which have been scanned and converted to images by using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional resulting in Adobe Portable Document "PDF" files. This file format allows for reasonably quick downloading of the linked items, quality viewing, and printing options. The Memorabilia web page currently contains program booklets for the Senior Awards, the Commencement Exercises, and the Graduation Mass. If anyone has class-related memorabilia which is not listed on the Memorabilia web page, please email me so that we can arrangements for me to scan your items to make them available on this web site. The Yearbook Recollections web page contains words, phrases, and thoughts that were common to our class during our senior year and that had been compiled in our yearbook.
