Heartfelt thanks


Usually party guests eat before they express their thanks. But at Thanksgiving in February, things went differently. The Office of Donor Relations hosted its annual letter-writing luncheon for College scholarship recipients February 18, when about 160 students acknowledged donors’ generosity by drafting personal thank-you notes.

As in past years, the event was held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Reynolds Club South Lounge. Keeping with the Thanksgiving theme, the study room was spruced up with pumpkin-scented candles, tea lights, music, and a warm fire. The menu likewise offered mini turkey and cranberry sandwiches, veggie wrap bites, acorn squash soup, and dips, as well as lemon bars, pumpkin squares, and other desserts.
