Attached below is a PDF file that includes a great letter and story about Tom Higgins '66 & Brian Higgins '64, and their trip to Alfred to visit with the Brothers and share their memories and appreciation with the Brothers.

I thank Tom & Brian for sharing their story with the Alumni and I hope more can share their stories in the future.


Please enjoy!

Thank you,

Don Recore - Webpage Administrator




On May 25, 2015 we had a small Reunion for a dedicated group of Alumni.  Due to a power outage in Plattsburgh that lasted for the better of 5-6 hours, many people did not make it to the gathering.  We were fortunate to have Brother Francis Blouin, Brother Raymond Fortin, and Brother Charles Thomas join us for the great dinner and good company.  Brother Francis addressed the group and gave us an update on the Brothers in Alfred as well as his continuing saga.  If you missed it, you missed a truly inspiring talk.

With such a small turnout, we were also fortunate to have the St. Peter's soup kitchen available to take the leftover foods from the Reunion to provide for the less fortunate at their weekly dinner.  I'm sure they ate well!  SPECIAL THANKS goes out to fellow MAI graduate Mark Bennett, who is a deacon at St. Peter's church and runs the soup kitchen for the Plattsburgh community.

The CVCS Alumni Website has been a site that was originally set up by the former MAI Alumni Association in an effort to combine and perpetuate the memory of all formers Catholic High Schools in the Champlain Valley area and still provide support for the remaining Catholic school. Most likely because all of the former schools no longer exist and Seton really is concentrating on its future, we will be doing the following.

Since the site was set up by the MAI Alumni Association, we still feel it right to maintain the database we have and also keep a listing of all the old Catholic Schools that were in the Champlain Valley including: MAI, OLVA, St. John's and even D'Youville Academy.  Anyone logging into the CVCS site will be redirected to the new MAI Website that is being put together as we send this notice.  The site will be the MAI Alumni Web site but there will be a seperate section where other school Alumni can access their class lists and keep them up to date.

The new "Mission" of the old MAI Alumni Association will be to work together to provide a forum for Alumni from Mount Assumption Institute and The Brothers of Christian Instruction to keep the memories of MAI alive and support the projects and charities of the Brothers of Christian instruction.  We will also have emergency arrangements in place to ensure that the memorabilia from MAI will be looked after far into the future.

We thank you for your support in this endeavor and ask for your support and suggestions as we move forward.

Deo Sol,

The MAI Alumni Association
