The weekend continues on Friday, April 12 with a tour by the Preservation Society of our three historic properties: McBee House at 172 Rutledge, Elizabeth House at 179 Rutledge, and our newest addition, the Warren Street property. A light lunch will be offered before guests attend a classroom experience of Ashley Hall today. In addition, the Class of 1969 will be inducted into the Jubilee Society with a special reception.
The Purple and White Party on Friday, April 12 at 6:00 p.m. will feature a full bar and an exciting online auction. Stay tuned for more details about the auction and how you can participate in the auction even if you are unable to attend the party that Friday night.
Saturday morning is a busy one with a Mimosa Reception on the Senior Lawn, class photos, and finally the Closing Luncheon and Awards Ceremony at noon. Individual class parties will take place Saturday night, with plans still in development.
We look forward to seeing you back on campus!
