1995 American Catholic Press Benefit

Now augmented by Bruce and Lynn MacLean, the benefit planning committee again schedules a dinner at Surma's Restaurant, for March 11, 1995.

After extensive negotiation in 1994, American Catholic Press left Seton Academy in February, 1995, and moved into a building of its own at State and Taft, still in South Holland.  This move meant new obligations, including renovation, maintenance, and a thirty-year mortgage; for these reasons, a benefit was welcome and appreciated.
