UW-River Falls Alum Weekend Looks at Past and Present
The 12th annual UW- River Falls Alumni Weekend will be held July 25-26 to take alumni back to their college days and to show them what college life is like today.
The weekend will honor the reunion classes of 1937, 1942, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962, and 1967.
Included among the many weekend activities are a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres hour and a display by the University Old Car Club and the presentation of the St. Croix Summer Theater's "Forever Plaid" on Friday.
Spotlight presentations include tours of the Food Sciences laboratories, the St. Croix Summer Theater Backstage, and the recently renovated Chalmer Davee Library, and the Greenhouse.
Alumni will also be able to dangle their feet in Pete's Creek (South Fork), see favorite professors at a panel discussion with faculty emeriti, and tour the Kansas City Chiefs training facility.
The guest speaker for the closing dinner and awards banquet on Saturday will be Professor Clair (Bernie) Brohaugh, a 1961 graduate. Brohaugh will provide his own rendition of "Quiet Weeks in River Falls," a take-off on Garrison Keeler's "Quiet Weeks in Lake Wobegon."
Reunion pictures and group photographs will be taken.
A block of rooms in the residence halls have been reserved for alumni who really wish to get back the feeling of college life. To obtain accommodation information or to register for the weekend, call Dan McGinty in the Alumni Office at 715/425-3505.
