Reunion 2009 - June 5,6 & 7

GENERAL INFORMATION

Campus Services
Campus Store, Plourde Recreation Center, pool and d’Alzon Library will be open at various times throughout the weekend.

Class Directory
A Reunion Directory was produced for each class (and mailed in February) so you can get in touch with classmates.

Class Gift
When a class celebrates a reunion, classmates are encouraged to participate in the Reunion Class Gift (a gift to the Annual Fund or another College priority). Reunion classes strive for 40-50% class participation - some come in even higher! Past donors are encouraged to consider increasing their usual gift and those who have not given in recent years are asked to participate with a gift of any size to increase the participation level. The aim is to present the College with a Reunion Class Gift that reflects the enthusiasm of the class and their affection for Assumption College.

Remember, there can be tax advantages to making donations of appreciated securities, and corporate matching gifts count toward your class gift. This can be an easy way to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift.

Every gift - no matter what size - counts towards class participation! Reunion gifts may be made on-line by visiting www.assumption.edu/alums.

Overnight Accommodations
