The inaugural Homecoming/Reunion this past October was certainly one of the bright spots for campus activities in 2009. For the first time in recent memory, post- and pre-1990s alums had plenty of opportunities to share together in the changes on campus and compare notes amid a campus that was alive with students.

In fact, there was so much going on to meet the almost disparate interests of the different age groups that it took extra study and discussion among family members using the over-sized program to determine the places to go and things to see. A good suggestion for 50-year reunion classes for next year is to begin planning early and arrange for hotel reservations as early as possible and to request any activities in which your class members may have a special interest.

This year the 50 Year Club New Member Welcome Dinner was renamed and rescheduled as the New Member Welcome Brunch in place of the dinner and dance program that was held in prior years. Over the years comments from participants about the late evening program and substantial cost prompted the change that was received with plaudits by attendees.
