ALUMNAE REUNION

WEEKEND & MAY DAY

FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 12 – 13, 2019

DEAR ALUMNA,

Starting in 2018, we began celebrating your class reunions every five years! That means if your class ends in a 4 or 9, it is your year to CELEBRATE — but everyone is invited to attend the weekend and reunite with your sisters. If it is your reunion year, please be sure to attend the activities Friday evening, when we will recognize each class.

As you prepare to celebrate your accomplishments and reconnect with your sisters, your consistent support is important. We invite you to make a celebratory reunion gift toward your class. We will have a contest again this year amongst classes to see which class has the largest amount donated. The class with the highest amount will be placed on our sparkly silver trophy in the alumni house. Every gift counts, no matter the amount!

I am looking forward to seeing each one of you and celebrating with you!
