Purple & White Senior Alumni Mass & Dinner
Formerly known as our "Over-50" event, this year's event took place on June 5th and featured a couple of major changes: 1) the class celebrating its 50-year reunion (1966) was invited to celebrate with us, and 2) we offered dinner instead of brunch. In all, 18 classes were represented at the dinner from 1942 to 1966! The changes were widely approved of, and we look forward to continuing to improve this event each year.
