Happy Holidays!
'Tis the season of gift giving and receiving. Whichever list you are working on, why not visit our Western Gift Shop for ideas? And to save time, you can order online.

Catch the Spirit
Speaking of giving, your gifts to the Annual Fund have, among other things, helped students participate in the course "Biodiversity of Kenya". We are doing so much to continue the spirit of Western and it is because of your support. There is still time for you to make an online gift to the WCAA Annual Fund. Do it today!

What's Happening
On the Western campus, that is ... well, a very successful 30th Anniversary Celebration/Reunion for the Western Program, for one thing. Our own Sue Off Schrope '52 was in attendance throughout the weekend (November 14-16) and is reporting on events firsthand for the Spring '04 Bulletin. However, here is a sneak preview for you.

And, a sparkling holiday luncheon for our scholarship recipients, for another. Ten joined the staff at Patterson Place on December 12 to eat, drink, and be merry.

Thirty Is Something
Speaking of reunions, we hope you are planning to come to the WCAA's 30th Anniversary celebration, June 18-20, 2004. Past and present trustees -- there are more than 100 of you -- will be special honorees, so make plans now to be on campus.
