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.

Sorry to have lost contact with so many people I cared for so much in the past. I'm not living in California with a husband I ador. I have three independent children, one of whom blessed us with our third grandchild, Sebastian, born three weeks ago. I would love to hear from all of you. I have only great memories of my college years. Love to all, Priscilla
