We have been privileged to know some wonderful CCC Alumni over the years, and to work with them, their spouses, and their families. The National Association of CCC Alumni (NACCCA) was formed in 1978, and as the 50th anniversary of the CCC approached in 1983, chapters sprang up across the country. Mile High Chapter 7 was one of those.
