Reunion '05 ― Take Another Look Back ... Then Look Ahead
A great time was had by all and is sure to be repeated next year!
Friday night we mixed up classes from '39 to '05, comparing memories in a potpourri of table talk. After dinner, DJ Toad had everyone groovin' to music from seven decades.
 
Saturday began early with a bird walk and concluded late with the elegant banquet, highlighted by tributes and toasts – most notably from the 50th and 25th anniversary classes. Next year, '56 and '81 will be in the spotlight ... but you can do the math. Wonder who will win the Peabody Cup for best attendance?
 
Sunday morning old friends and new came together in Kumler Chapel, listened to the choir
's rendition of "Simple Gifts," heard speaker Barbara Knuth's inspiring message, "Environmental Challenges ... Interdisciplinary Solutions," and joined hands in a huge circle to sing "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." We're working on another compelling theme for '06, but count on this: The circle will be unbroken!
 
Meanwhile, the reviews are in. Here
's what some attendees are saying:
Reunion was great fun. ... thanks. Claire Reutter '83
 
It was very well planned. I especially liked having the combined Western College alums with the Western College Program alums. Sara Babcock Burneson '55
 
It was a pleasure meeting the Western College alums. Denise and I are delighted we attended. Jeff Horst '79
 
The weekend was awesome. I loved meeting all the Western College Program students.  We really "melded."  They seem to love our history and I love their enthusiasm, intelligence, and the fantastic things they are doing.  They are making us proud to all be "Westerners"! Barbara Johnson "Johnny" Mecklenborg '53
 
Thanks for a great weekend! Barb Knuth '80
 
I enjoyed it so very much and look forward to coming again soon. Kate O'Brian Lillich '65
See for yourself!
