And the Beat (Still) Goes On ...

... celebrating the past, building for the future! The year-long celebration commemorating the WCAA's 35th anniversary will conclude with Reunion 2010, June 18-20! A special invitation will soon go out to ALL Bulletin Class Reps, who will be honored for their indispensable service.


Still Busy After All These Years ...

... doing what they do best. No one who knew them at Western will be surprised to read that alums Kaye Hedeen Kory '69 and Tonya Lovelace '90 are involved in public service or that Bev Rohlehr '69 and Elisabeth Price '04 are making beautiful music and art.


Yes, Virginia ...

... there is a Western Program! The numbers may be down, but enthusiasm is way up. You can see with your own eyes (and hear with your own ears) by eavesdropping on their new website, complete with a video. Also on the Western campus, the Kumler Chapel pipe organ, newly restored to its original splendor, was featured along with the voices of two Miami choral groups in a program of sacred and music at Kumler. And, yes, there were candles.


Past Meets Present ...

... with the digitization of the Mississippi Freedom Summer 1964 collection.  Documents and videos can be viewed online, thanks to modern technology and the efforts of the Miami University Libraries and Western College Memorial Archives.  Western alumnae and former faculty are panelists in video 22.


Lunch Is Served  ...

... in the holiday atmosphere of decked-out Patterson Place to our scholarship recipients, along with lively conversation and goody/gift bags to help them through exams, by the WCAA office staff.


So You Thought You'd Seen Everything Western ...

... not quite yet! Our Super Shoppers (you know who they are) have new items for your purchasing pleasure in the WCAA Gift Shop.


A Gift That Truly Keeps on Giving ...

... YOURS, to the Annual Fund! We now have our own secure giving webpage within the Miami website, so check it out and make it a Happy New Year for your WCAA. And a Happy New Year to you as well!
