The grand celebration has passed and it was certainly one to be remembered! Friday evening was the perfect start to our 60th Reunion Weekend. Ruth (Sadick) and Allen Rubin treated us to a first class affair at their home in Paxton. The food was wonderful and the laughter among classmates could be heard throughout the home. Thank you, Ruth and Allen, for once again opening your home to the Class of 1952. The events throughout the day on Saturday were first class, from the brunch in the Administration Building (our only building) to the Chorale performance to the dinner that evening. We all reminisced about the good ole days and truly enjoyed each and every moment we had with each other. Sunday’s Golden Graduate Luncheon was a fitting, and perfect, ending to this momentous weekend.

We have had a tremendous response to our class gift effort and are happy to report that to date we have raised $8,280 for the Class of 1952 Endowed Academic Award Fund. To those of you who have already made a gift- thank you! If you have not yet had the chance to participate, we truly hope that you will give serious consideration to doing so. We are grateful to Worcester State for providing a strong academic foundation for our careers and want to give back to future classes. Today’s students are worthy and deserving of our support. Remember, to create the Class of 1952 Endowed Academic Award we need each and every class member to participate, so please do the very best that you can.
