We have so much to celebrate:
- An amazing 50th Reunion with 150 classmates attending
- A beautiful Record Book that has been sent to our entire class
- Awards and new records for our fundraising and attendance at reunion
- A special alumnae award for Laura Daignault Gates
AND best of all - just being able to see each other and reconnect!
We owe thanks to so many for the vibrant class of 1972. We learned about Wellesley’s past and present through our Zooms, as well as getting a peek into our classmates creative endeavors. We had a dedicated crew working on our Record Book. The memorial book was a walk down memory lane and helped us remember those classmates we lost. And, we reveled in peppermint pie and wearing our tiaras during reunion.
A big thank you to our officers over the past 5 years (and some for 10 years). We couldn’t have gone through the both the fun times and the struggles of planning during a pandemic without all the support from our outstanding group. Kim and Sarah created a great trip to Prague but had to cancel our Washington, D.C. reunion. We had constant and always amusing reminders from Connie about getting her the news. Sheila admirably kept our finances straight even as the college often changed the system. Rebecca totally redid our web page and has included many new features. And - as you can see above - what a remarkable team doing fundraising. Many thanks to Beth, Nan, and Betsy for all their hard work.
It has been a privilege to be your Co-Presidents and also to have co-chaired the 50th Reunion. We are still glowing (and bragging) about the success of reunion and all the positive feedback. And - the rebel class made all the other classes jealous about our tiaras and dorm decorations.
