These esteemed alumnae will come together for a luncheon, a Staunton trolley tour, and a Dutch treat dinner at Emilio’s Italian Restaurant.

“We want to honor these alumnae and their special relationship with the college, and we found that many were interested in gathering for special events. We look forward to welcoming alumnae from these Grafton Society years back to campus for Reunion Weekend,” said Director of Alumnae/i Engagement Kim Hutto.

Other popular events include a wine tasting reception with faculty and faculty emeriti; the Brenda Bryant 5K Memorial Run/Walk; the alumnae awards ceremony and president’s address; Wine and Design, where alumni create their own artwork; speed networking with current students to share professional guidance; and the Reunion dinner celebrating all classes.

“Our theme for this year’s Reunion focuses on the timeless values that have remained steadfast through the years at Mary Baldwin, and we are excited to celebrate with our wonderful community of alumni,” Hutto said.
