CCAL Alumni / Friends Gathering and Graduation

Alumni and friends of Concordia College Alabama – Mark your calendars and plan to join us for this special gathering!

It will be the weekend of May 11-14, 2017, which is rapidly approaching. Please help us plan well by sending in your fees and contributions. Keep in mind that all are asked to submit the dues of $35.00 whether you plan to attend or not. We hope and pray that you are planning to attend all the activities and will send your payments accordingly. All Alumni/Friends Chapters are asked to submit their gifts to the Association and, thereby, to Concordia College Alabama on or before May 12. All other fees should be sent to me or Mrs. Gracie Hollins (Treasurer) no later than April 15.

Please go to the Concordia College Alabama website and give a little of your precious time to the Alumni Association bar; you will be given all the activities for the weekend so identified. A summary is also listed below. Please share the information with all those in your area who are graduates and friends of the college.

To those chapters that are diligently working to make your fundraiser a success, blessings to you. I am praying that all will go well and that you will have excellent support from those who love the institution. Please pray for our work together. Blessings on your work, as well as your travel to and from the gathering. The Lord be with you!
~ Rev. Dr. McNair Ramsey
