If you take a look, you'll notice that another month has been torn off the calendar and we find ourselves in December. So, Happy December to all of our North Catholic Alumni friends and families. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We've been very busy at the alumni office, but we wanted to take a quick pause to update everyone on some of our upcoming events and deadlines.
The North Catholic Alumni Association will hold a sale at the alumni office during two Saturdays in December. If you want to pick up some of the merchandise that we have to sell (shirts, hats, hoodies, Christmas balls, mugs, etc.), just stop by the office and we'll be more than happy to help you select something for yourself or that special Falcon in your life.

ALUMNI HALL OF FAME NOMINATIONS
The North Catholic Alumni Association's Hall of Fame Committee is now accepting nominations for our Hall of Fame class of 2024. The Alumni Hall of Fame honors outstanding North Catholic grads for their accomplishments after graduating from our beloved school. (Note: It is not a Hall of Fame for accomplishments while a student) If you know of a deserving Falcon alum who you believe should be honored by being inducted into our Hall of Fame, please click the button below to nominate him.
Our 2023-24 Falconway Drive is currently underway. If we have your updated mailing address, you should have received a brochure in the mail. As always, the Falconway campaign raises money for the Alumni's Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards $500,000 per year to children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of active alumni members to offset tuition costs for local Catholic schools, including grade school awards (3-year), high school (4-year) and college (4-year). In addition to raising money for the scholarship fund, the Falconway campaign also raises money for the Oblates of St Francis De Sales. This is our oppotunity to give back to the men who gave us so much during our time at North Catholic. Donations to the Falconway campaign are 100% tax deductible.
