This story recently appeared in the winter 2012 edition of Harker Quarterly.
More than 200 former classmates and friends were warmly welcomed back to campus as they reunited for the much anticipated All-Alumni Reunion, held the day after Harker’s homecoming game.
Hosted by the Alumni Association at the upper school in the Nichols Hall atrium on Nov. 3, the jam-packed evening was a lively mix and mingle for adult alumni, with plenty of food, drink, music and fun.
A bartender helped pour wine, provided by Ryan Moreland ’98 from his winery, Corvalle, as members of the Class of ’73 marked the occasion by playing in a reunited band called the PAMA Boys. Alumni danced the night away and admired old Harker memorabilia and archival items which were on display, including a time capsule holding letters written and sealed 10 years ago by the upper school’s inaugural Class of 2002.
Recipients of the Harker Alumni Awards, which had been announced at halftime during Harker’s homecoming game the night before, were also introduced and recognized during the reunion (see accompanying story here).
The successful reunion was the result of months of planning with class agents and the alumni office. Agents were the main promoters, planners, idea givers and catalysts for ensuring a memorable event for their fellow classmates and friends.
