Class of 1960 - 50th Anniversary Reunion
Dear Members of the Class of 1960:
For those of you who attended, we know you enjoyed the 50th Anniversary Reunion. For those unable to attend, you were profoundly missed. The weekend kicked off at Putah Creek Lodge with the class dinner on Friday evening, October 1, 2010. During the evening we poured over the photos and stories within the Book of Memories that was so nicely done by Lee and Jean Akins.
The following day, we visited several of the school’s beautiful new buildings and met some of the current students from various student clubs and organizations. They are an impressive group - bright, enthusiastic and proud to be entering the veterinary profession. We then lunched with Dean Bennie Osburn in the Alumni Room of Gladys Valley Hall.
Saturday afternoon Dean Osburn hosted the 50th Anniversary Rose Ceremony for our class. Every one of our classmates, living and deceased was individually recognized. A ceremonial rose was placed in a special vase in each classmate’s honor. It was a moving and memorable event.
Saturday evening’s All Alumni dinner welcomed us and others from the classes of 1970, 1980, 1985, 1990 and 2000 to a delightful evening of celebration and fellowship.
Traditionally, the 50th Anniversary Reunion class makes a contribution to the School. The committee decided to donate the excess funds from the Book of Memories sales to the school, but we also invite each of you to make a personal contribution as well. You will never have a better time or opportunity to give something back to the School of Veterinary Medicine and, at the same time, lend a hand to future generations of veterinary students. Please complete and mail the form (click here) along with your check made payable to UC Regents.
