Reunion 2012 Highlights
The celebration has come and gone but the memories remain!  Friday evening was the perfect kick-off to our 50th Reunion Weekend.  President and Mrs. Maloney welcomed us into their home for an evening of reminiscing, laughter, and wonderful food.  We were very grateful for the lovely opportunity to spend time both with the Maloney family and with each other.  The events throughout the day on Satruday were first class, from the brunch in the Administration Building, to the Chorale performance, to the dinner and dancing that evening.  We all reminisced about the good ole days and truly enjoyed every moment we had together.  Sunday's Golden Graduates Luncheon was a fitting, and perfect, end to this momentous weekend.  Special thanks to our Class of 1962 Reunion Planning Committee, who worked so hard to make our time on campus exciting.

Looking forward to hearing from many classmates through this new class website. Many thanks to Nicole Losavio of the WSU alumni office for getting our site up and running. Hoping to see many at the November 15 lunch at THE WAYSIDE INN in Sudbury. This week you will receive your class agent news letter with many enclosures, please take the time to read each.  This is the first agent letter this year and will be followed by another in April 2013.  Let's keep the reunion momentum moving by filling out and returning the gold slip in the package and continuing your giving commitment.  Looking forward to hearing from many classmates and lunching together in November.
Best regards,
Patricia (Fell) Pennucci
