Western Reunion Weekend - June 16-18, 2006

Click here to view a slide show of 2006 Reunion Weekend activities.

Reunion Weekend 2006 was a truly Western gathering!  Over 175 alums, family and friends came  together on the Western campus and experienced the strength of the Western spirit ... during fun times and work times ... remembering the past, discussing the future and celebrating the present.  In 1888, Helen Peabody asked her alumnae, "Has the anchor held in the storm?"   In 2006, 118 years later, a resounding answer was given by the silver anniversary class of 1981 when they concluded their toast with these words ... "The anchor is still holding."

The 2006 Reunion Gift is for the Community Life Fund, supporting programs and events that promote community among students, alumni and friends ... both on campus and beyond.  Our goal is $30,000; by the Saturday banquet, over $20,000 had been given.   If you wish to support this fund, go to Miami's secure giving site, complete the necessary information and scroll down to the box marked Western College Alumnae Association.  There you may enter your gift amount and type 2006 Reunion Gift in the specific requests box.  As always, we are grateful for your support!

The WCAA invites Westerners one and all to return to the fold next June, third weekend.  The focus of next year's reunion will be Western Around the World.  We encourage all international students who attended Western to make plans now to return and re-une with one other and all other Westerners!
