The alumni turf was well-trod at the 60th annual Harker Family & Alumni PIcnic in October. Over 175 people, including more than 80 alumni, came for the food – sausages, veggie burgers and more – and stayed for the company. The alumni area was set back from the blacktop under the shade trees and featured its own food supply and a peaceful lawn.
Joining alumni and their family and friends were faculty and former faculty including Cindy Ellis, Chris Daren, Howard Saltzman and Mena Lynch. Classmates mingled, renewed friendships and met each other’s kids. Alumni director Christina Yan ’93 noted many alumni were at their first picnic since graduating, and she heard at least one alumnus say how much he was looking forward to seeing the group again next year.
