Homecoming & Family Weekend 2013 - Special Celebrations
Band and Choir Reunion and Concert
Arrive early enough Friday to practice. A 90-minute choir rehearsal begins at
3 p.m. in Wine Recital Hall. Band rehearsal is set for 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Cordier.
At 7:30 that evening, you’ll all take the stage together for a concert that’s as
much fun for the performers as it is for the audience. Reception to follow.
Working for Peace
This year, Peace Studies honors Wangari Maathai, founder of the Green Belt
Movement and a 2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. Alumni are invited to
celebrate Maathai’s contributions and listen to words from our guest speaker.
Saturday, 2 p.m., Gladdys Muir Peace Garden.
When Dr. Wilbur McFadden ’53 wanted to honor the McFadden family’s four-generation Manchester roots, his children and grandchildren convinced him that “Wilbur’s” would be an inviting and fun name for a place where current and future students can relax, grab a bite and study late into – or through – the night. The dedication will be at 10 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 5. Let’s meet at Wilbur’s!
