It was something of an awakening to be reminded by the College that 50 years have passed since we first came up to Univ, and even more of one when we met with the 1964 alumni and heard how they had celebrated their own Golden Anniversary. The 60's generation thrive on challenge! We had a typically enthusiastic response from those who were asked if they would join a committee to organise a suitably fun event to mark the anniversary; and here we are, five months into the campaign. It seemed hard to imagine that we could contact our Year after such a period of time, and we could not have done so without enormous help from the Univ Development office, but we are now very much in touch and our three day reunion is taking shape. What is more, while we are aiming above all else to reunite friends with each other and the College, we already have an extraordinarily generous response to our request for funds that will also let us establish a lasting mark of thanks to the College from the 1965's.
