2 2 B U L L E T I N from the President of the Association Greetings! As I write this from my home in North Carolina, it’s January, and I’m in a landscape of snow and ice. The temperature is frigid, but the sun is out, and the trees sparkle in icy coatings. As you read this in February or March, are the daffodils and forsythia already blooming where you are? Picture the wisteria about to cascade down Main Hall porch. We anticipate seasons and relish the changes they bring. There have been changes in the Alumnae and Alumni Office since early July when I wrote my last letter. Notably, Phebe Williamson Wescott ’78 has taken the helm; Jen Godley Brestel ’93 continues to add her vibrancy and skill; and Lauren Grimmett, Sam Hazlewood ’16, and Ruth Boyd complete the team. Hooray! Changes are set into motion each spring as the second semester races pell-mell toward Commencement followed by Reunion. An amazing number of events such as the dance concert, Symposium of Artists and Scholars, senior papers and presentations, theatre production, sports, the Senior Dinner Dance, and academic awards and sports banquets find places on the calendar in a whirl of programming. In May, we welcome the graduates into our Association while simultaneously learning about the new students who will be enrolling in the fall. This ever-evolving process adds to our Vita abundantior. What is constant is the Association’s intent to keep us connected with each other and with the College. In March (year 126 for the College!), more than 20 alum events will take place across the country. If one is in your area, be sure to attend. For those of you in Reunion classes, lucky you! You’ll have the enrichment of celebrating with classmates on campus and experiencing for yourself the wonderful permanence of this special place and the changes that enable it. Happy Spring – and Vita abundantior always, Dixie Association NEWS REPORT OF THE TREASURER July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016 Operating Funds of the Association are maintained in the account of the College.
