SJC Reunion 2018 ~ April 12 - April 15
Mark your calendar and make plans to attend SJC Reunion 2018!
“What a wonderful weekend with the dearest people in the world. We really did make lifelong friendships at Joe’s, and it showed in outpourings of love toward each other after all these years. I will make every effort to get together as often as possible with any of the gang.” ~ Mary Morel Ingram ‘72
We invite you to come back to the Valley to be “All Together” again! Help us celebrate with the classes ending in “3” and “8”. Remember, our Reunions are not just for these Milestone Classes. They are for all Alumnae! The Reunion Committee is hard at work planning another great weekend. Contact your friends and classmates now to meet you at Reunion 2018.
