... e-Round the World
Volume VIII, No. 1
It Again...Western," We Did!
our first act, an appreciative audience of more than 150 alums and guests
went to the theater (Leonard Theatre to see Turkish shadow puppets),
interacted with a performance artist (impersonating Helen Peabody) and
sat for portraits (sketched by an accomplished amateur caricaturist).
Saturday, we sang along with a marching band (in the Saturday morning
parade), participated in a book discussion (based on Phyllis Hoyt's
memoir), and enjoyed the renderings of a steel drum band (background
music for the Patterson Place lawn reception). Then it was showtime at
the Saturday night banquet, complete with celebrities, elegant cuisine, and
toasts and awards galore!
the final act Sunday morning, beautiful music and beautiful words played
in Kumler Chapel. Encore? The traditional farewell brunch in Alexander,
where cries were heard for a repeat performance next year!
