Mac Sennett Lobster Feed a Success!

Reunion Marks Fifty Years for Class of 1959

The Mac Sennett Lobster Feed and Alumni Reunion held Saturday, August 15, was a great success. UMM staff members, faculty, and other friends and family joined more than fifty alums, representing classes ranging from 1937 through 2008, for the reunion. Congratulations go to Elizabeth (DeShon) Tibbetts and Alice (Beal) Parry who were present from the Class of 1937, the oldest class represented, and to the Class of 1965, the class with the most representation.

Members of Class of 1959Following the Alumni Association’s annual meeting, everyone gathered for a wine and cheese reception to honor the fifty-year class. President Cynthia Huggins presented Sandra (Hodgins) Cookson ’59 and Mary (Lund) Campbell ’59 each with a gift. Robert Feeney ’59 was not able to attend the reunion, but sent along a note of best wishes to his classmates and fellow alums. Also honored at the event were Susan Palmer ’72, recipient of the 2009 Distinguished Alumnus Award, and Howard McFadden 67, recipient of the 2009 Distinguished Service Award. The UMM Ukulele Club performed during the reception, while alums, family, and friends enjoyed good conversation.

After the reception, the Aramark staff served a delicious feast of lobster, steamed clams, corn on the cob, potato salad, and blueberry pie.

Following the lobster dinner, several items donated by alumni and friends were auctioned off to raise money for Alumni Association scholarships.

Stay tuned for details on next year’s reunion. A “Save the Date” postcard will be mailed in late winter. We hope to see you there!
