Mark your calendar and make plans to attend SJC Reunion 2017!
Come back to the Valley for Reunion 2017, March 23 - March 26. Each year, the Board of Trustees and the Reunion Committee work diligently to improve your reunion experience, making the weekend fun and memorable. Some comments from last year’s reunion:
“Fabulous! We talked and talked and talked like nothing else. It is a step back in time to reconnect. Magic!” Jane Davis Marden ‘66
“Congratulations on a wonderful Reunion. The Class of ’71 had a fantastic time recalling past times and creating new memories together. I had a smile on my face, being back in the Valley with everyone again.” Susan Roach Thomey ‘71
We invite you to come back to the Valley to be “All Together” again! Help us celebrate with the classes ending in “2” and “7”. Remember, our Reunions are not just for these Milestone Classes. They are for all Alumnae! The Reunion Committee is hard at work planning another great weekend. Contact your friends and classmates now to meet you at Reunion 2017.
