Calendar Countdown
Can't face one more trip to the mall? We can help. Bare spot on your tree? Add a Peabody Hall tree ornament! Stocking looking a little limp? Stuff it with a deck of Western playing cards! And reward yourself for all that shopping with one of our great-looking twill shirts or a pair of cozy lounge pants. There's still ju-u-u-st enough time to have your Gift Shop order delivered by the 25th.

Last Call for 2004 WCAA Gifts
And ju-u-u-st enough time to have your name included with your class in the Spring '05 Bulletin honor roll. Go to our secure web site to make your gift to the Annual Fund (credit card gifts are accepted until 9 am on December 31.) We thank you!

On the Last Day of Classes ...
Our scholarship students were treated to a holiday party, hosted by office staff Judy Waldron, Debbie Baker, Kaye Wolke and Cathy Cooper. Goodies, hot mulled cider, and decorated gift bags filled with Western items were enjoyed by all.

Western in the News
Take a look at these Miami Student articles with a Western connection...
 
Alums Pris Strand Berry '54, Judith Hampton '64, and Angela Giudice '75 were among the participants in September's "Voices of Freedom Summer Reunion and Conference," held on Western and main Miami campuses.
 
Nine years ago, "Project Dragonfly" ― a program promoting science inquiry by and for children ― was begun by WCP faculty. Still maintaining an office in Lower Peabody Hall, "Dragonfly" has evolved from magazine to PBS TV program, teacher training and other ventures, all described on its web site (which registered its one millionth "hit" in November).

Clubs in Action
Four local clubs met this fall: WCP alum Rhian Miller '78 gave her talk, "Confessions of an Independent Documentary Producer: The Tricks, Trials and Tribulations Revealed," in San Francisco; Greater Dayton convened loyal members for the traditional Holiday Brunch; Lauren Collins, WCP '04 and a Multicultural Scholarship recipient, was featured in Indianapolis, and WCP Dean Bill Gracie spoke in New York City.
