This story recently appeared in the winter 2012 edition of Harker Quarterly.
Alumni were out in full force at the recent 62nd annual Harker Family & Alumni Picnic, “Paws, Jaws & Claws.” The daylong event, held on Oct. 14 at the middle school, attracted more than 100 alumni who enjoyed catching up at a special area reserved just for them.
For alumni with children, there were plenty of kid-friendly activities on hand to keep youngsters busy while parents chatted. Representatives from classes as far back as 1965 and as recent as 2012 were in attendance, making this year’s picnic alumni section a wonderful success.
“My family and I enjoyed catching up with Harker alumni at the family picnic. The barbecue was great, and I particularly liked the private area reserved for alumni families – a quiet and shaded place to sit, eat, drink and visit. Exceptionally well done!” enthused Karri Sakai Baker ’84. “Our kids enjoyed the games and activities while we visited with old friends. I highly recommend this fun family event to all alumni. We plan to return next year.”
