Come to the gathering. Many of you think of this as our
Alma Reunion, we should make it a gathering of old

at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn, London, Ontario, but has now been postponed. Please hold on to your registration form and newsletter in the hope that we can reschedule. Details will be forthcoming as soon as we know them.
The Golden Girls for this reunion are those alumnae who attended Alma College during the year 1969-70. It has been 50 years since you were at Alma! Those from graduating year 1960, this is your 60th Reunion. Mari (Carter) Cole and Marion (Davidson) Jagger will be the hostesses for 1959-60. M.J. (Callender) Foster will be the hostess for the 64-65 group. We are looking for hostesses for the Golden Girls, 1969-70 and 40th reunion, 1979-80. This is a great time to look forward to seeing old friends and new. Tell other people you're coming, and they will come too!
