We are excited to announce that we have arranged for a bus trip to the Alma property for a visit at the new building, Alma College Square. The tour is planned for the afternoon of Friday June 10th. The bus leaves for St. Thomas from the Best Western Lamplighter at 1 pm. We will have some wine and cheese in the party room while enjoying the view from the top floor. On Saturday and Sunday we will have our regular reunion activities. Join us the weekend of June 10-12, 2022. More information can be found on the Reunion page. Take a moment and check out our 2022 Annual Newsletter.
Some of our fellow alumnae are now living at Alma College Square or are awaiting their moving date. Michael Leowith has offered for us to kickoff our reunion with a wine and cheese event on the property. More information about the rental apartments and the floorplans can be found on their website.
Due to the increasing cost of the printing of the newsletter and the whopping postage expense, we will be changing the way we distribute the newsletter. Last year, we sent out just over 800 newsletters, 13% of alumnae (100 people) paid their dues, and approximately 60 alumnae attended the 2015 Annual Reunion. 8% attendance as a return on the mail out is poor. Our mandate is to keep as many in touch with each other as we can – communication is key.
2020 and ongoing: Only 200 newsletters will be mailed to alumnae who have paid their dues or made a donation.
2016 Process: This year we will again mail out a hard copy to all Alumnae in Canada and USA for whom we have good mailing addresses. Some we only have an email address for so we will send them a link to the website where they can find the newsletter. We had many returned newsletters last year - moved. The vast majority of these we have been unable to update as we were not able to find your new address.
2017 Changes: Next year, Alumnae in USA and overseas will only receive a newsletter if they have paid their dues within the last 2 years. We will send an email to all USA or Overseas Alumnae for whom we have an email address. Please send in your dues if at all possible and keep us updated as to your contact information.
