More than 2,000 visitors are expected on campus for ReUnion this weekend. Together, they’ll enjoy traditional favorites like the Alumni Parade, fireworks show and Gala Dinner. There’ll also be presentations from notable alumni in a variety of fields, a celebration to honor the College’s service men and women, and on Saturday, the official dedication of Messa House (formerly Blue House).
“The weather’s beautiful, and we’re on track to success as we roll out the red carpet for our oldest alumni of 1935 to our newest of 2009,” says Tammy Messercola, director of Alumni Relations. “We begin the Memorial Day weekend with a ceremony remembering our veterans, a special recognition to our Union College V-5/V-12, who are celebrating 67 years since they were here as part of that unit on the Union grounds.”
And don’t forget that the Department of Theatre and Dance presents Brian Friel’s dramatic memory play, “Dancing at Lughnasa,” this evening through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 30 at 2 p.m. It’s set in Donegal, Ireland in August 1936. Tickets are available at the Box Office in Yulman Theater. Call 388-6545 for more information or to reserve tickets.
