KC Alums Gather for a Cultured Evening
On Friday, Sept. 7, a group of about 40 Saint Mary alums treated themselves to a tour at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art followed by a reception at the 1913 home of Lorraine Gordon, C‘69, and her husband, Tom Nelson, a Kansas City architect.
The docent leading the tours tailored the one-hour event to each group’s specific interests. Alums responded generously, donating over $1,000 that evening to USM scholarships.
Thanks to all who participated, and we hope to see you all again at next fall’s fundraiser!
Lawrence & Topeka-area Alums Re-Connect
On Oct. 12, Lawrence-Topeka area alums rallied together for the group’s second official gathering in 2012 in Lawrence, Kan.
Attendees met at the home of Judy Francis Bellome, C’68, and enjoyed lots of socializing and food.
The agenda also included a wonderful performance by USM sophomore nursing student Taylor Welch, who sang four songs while Dr. Krusemark played the piano.
Alumni then enjoyed story-telling with Sr. Barbara Sellers, C’61, and heard about the latest developments on campus from Sr. Diane Steele, C’83.
Jane Ellen Liebert, C’97, says that Lawrence- and Topeka-area alums should watch for more gatherings coming in 2013.
