Western ... e-Round the World
Volume X, No. 1 
July 2010

 

Thirty-six Years and Counting

Clearly, it's unstoppable! Reunion 2010 and Western women proved to be "masters of the situation anywhere." Western Drive was mostly shut down for repairs -- our shuttle drivers cheerfully detoured. Rain fell, threatening to halt our parade -- we marched indoors, banners held high, the long corridor of Lower PH. Unable to gather for an All-Reunion photo on the Peabody porch steps, we assembled on the stage risers in Leonard Theatre to smile for the cameras. Sheet music for "Western Blue," the Alumnae Choir's Sunday anthem, printed in the wrong key? No problem -- new music was found and distributed before any voices were strained. In 1974, our new Board of Trustees was advised to rent an office in Hamilton, hire a secretary and expect to "hold the group together for a few years." Thirty-six years later, the beat still goes on!

 

$120,000 and Counting

Thatís 30% of our $400,000 goal to create a Western College Professorship in tribute to our Western faculty! Last year's Reunion Gift, honoring our 35-year anniversary, kicked off the campaign, this year we added to it, and the beat goes on. We continue to look for even more support from our loyal past donors and inspired first-time donors. Please add your gift today!

 

Heads Up, Eyes Forward!

Some things change: Rita Greene '73 will take the reins from Barbara Williamson Wentz '68 as Reunion Chair. There will be a "Cabaret, Western Style" on Friday eve. Much remains the same: All Westerners, All classes are urged to come back to campus for an All-out great time at Reunion 2011, June 17-19. The anniversary classes are years ending in "1" and ď6"; special honoree, the 50-year Class of '61 will be inducted into the Meily Society.
