  Golden Legacy Ceremony 2020  (Added 11/01/2020)
     Our CGA Link In The Chain class of 2022 invited our class to attend their 3/c Formal Dinner Dance on 28 March 2020.  Between the dinner and the dance, the Golden Legacy Ceremony would be held in Leamy Hall whereby our classmates had the opportunity to donate their class rings, to be melted and mixed into the gold for 2022s class rings.

     Eight of our classmates donated their rings, one anonymously in memory of James Kehoe who crossed the bar while a cadet. Unfortunately, the 2020 event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Videos by '72 Ring Donors
     During the fall of 2020, the CGA Alumni Assn assisted our class in creating a video link to virtually represent the cancelled Golden Legacy Ceremony and preserve the memory.  Included in the video link is:
