Class of 1962 Reunion CO-Chairs
Class Gift – During Reunion Weekend, each reunion class presents the president of Assumption College with a “Class Gift”. The Class Gift is the total amount, including the Annual Fund, capital projects and endowment gifts, contributed by the class to Assumption College during the reunion year. Typically, in honor of a reunion, alumni who have not given in recent years will make a gift to the Annual Fund and those who have been regular contributors will increase their gift by two or threefold.
If you have not made a gift to our reunion class gift, please use the new Online giving option located on the Alumni web page.
Reunion Dinner Information -Our class dinner will be Friday, June 1st. Check back for details.
