Dear Classmates:

It is amazing how fast the years go by and at this time next year you will be receiving information on our 50th reunion from Springfield. We would like to make this the best reunion ever. To do this we need your help. We are looking for reunion committee volunteers to work with us to get the word out to classmates and you do not need to live in the Springfield area. If you are still in touch with your friends from SC ask them to get in touch with us so that we can verify email/home addresses. If they are on Facebook encourage them to sign up for our Facebook page, Springfield College - Class of 1970. If you have ideas for our 50th please share them. If you can volunteer some time over the next year let one of us know. Every little bit of outreach will help.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Classmates:

Several weeks ago, Cathy, Sue, Jan and I met with Alumni Director Tamie Kidess Lucey ’81, G’82,
and other members of reunion year classes to begin planning of the 2020 Reunion Weekend,
June 11-13, and more specifically, our 50th Reunion!!!  

There is truly a sense of pride one feels when walking back on campus today. The campus has never looked better.  When was the last time you were back on campus? I think the only buildings that may not have changed are the dorms, at least on the outside. But when you walk on campus, so many memories come back to so many fun times we experienced when we were there. 

As you think about your plans for next year, please take note of a few priorities:

  • ADD CLASS OF 1970 REUNION JUNE 11-13 TO YOUR CALENDAR – You know the one on your phone, computer, and the one hanging on the wall!!!   You can download a pre-response form below let us know your current thinking.  This will help us with our planning.
  • Class Dues – $20.00. We do need to create a more robust treasury so any help would be appreciated. Checks should be made out to Springfield College with “Class of ’70 Dues” noted on the memo line.
  • Financial support for our Alma Mater. This is always paramount to the long-term success of private higher education. Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Large corporations and foundations are more likely to support colleges with a high alumni giving percentage. We are aiming for participation more than amount. To give please visit www.springfield.edu/gift.
  • We have a Class of 1970 Facebook Group. It is a great way for you to reach out to roommates and classmates you may have lost contact with. We will also post reunion information as it become available. Find us on Facebook here or by searching for the Springfield College Class of 1970 group. 

Please feel free to reach out to any of the committee members with ideas for the weekend, to let us know if you would like to help, etc.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone.
