Western ... e-Round the World
Volume VIII, No. 1

"Play It Again...Western," We Did!

For 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).

 

On 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!

 

For 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!

Adding to the permanent WCAA legacy, the 2008 Reunion Gift will pay tribute to the arts at Western College (professors, students, plays, choir, Western Oxford, scope ...) and create the WCAA Scholarship for the Fine Arts.  Many alumnae have already given to this scholarship fund ... add YOUR gift today!

Next year, let's ALL be together! 

It will be the 35th anniversary of the WCAA, Inc. ... a time to celebrate!  What a grand time we'll have together, Westerners all!  It will be the fifth year our friends, alumni from the Western College Program, will join in the festivities. There will be special celebrations for the classes of 1959 and 1984 and all anniversary classes as well as other exciting events so ... mark your calendars NOW for June 19-21, 2009!
