Alumnae Reunion Weekend 2023 Recap
Over the weekend, we were thrilled to welcome many of our beloved alumnae back to campus. This year’s Alumnae Reunion highlighted members of all graduating classes ending in 3 or 8, and what an amazing turnout we had! The weekend began on Friday afternoon with Senior Tea, during which our alums enjoyed a meal and afternoon tea with the graduating class of 2023. In the evening, guests gathered outside for cocktail hour with Linden Hall staff — we could not have asked for better weather or more entertaining stories! We are so grateful for the Alumnae Association for hosting this special event. Following cocktail hour, alums enjoyed attending our student-led Spring Arts Showcase in Snavely Theatre and Lyet Gallery.
Alumnae weekend continued Saturday morning with guided tours of campus, led by several of our amazing student ambassadors. During the tours, alums reminisced about their time at Linden Hall and learned some interesting facts about our school’s historical architecture. Campus tours were followed by a magnificent service in Mary Dixon Chapel, highlights of which included a wonderful performance from our student bell choir as well as a compelling sermon from our chaplain, Mr. Denny Foreman. Following chapel was our much-anticipated buffet brunch, during which alums enjoyed a delicious meal with their Linden Hall sisters and rekindled decades-long friendships. After lunch, the Alumnae Association honored Josephine “Joey” Haubner Yocum ’59 as the recipient of the Distinguished Alumnae Award for her many years of service preserving the history of Linden Hall through her work with the archives.
Alumnae weekend concluded on Sunday morning with a solemn service in the Moravian Church adjacent to campus. Regarding the weekend’s activities, Ms. Taylor Sultzbach, our Alumnae Relations Coordinator, remarked, “It went so well! There were so many events for folks to attend, and I loved seeing the smiling faces of our alums as they came back together. Watching them reconnect, reminisce about Linden Hall, and share memories made me feel like I was a part of the sisterhood they all share. I’m already looking forward to next year!”
Welcoming home our wonderful alumnae is one of our most sacred traditions at Linden Hall, and we are so glad that 2023’s reunion was such an incredible success. Many thanks to all who attended as well as to those who made the weekend happen, including our Alumnae Association and our amazing, hard-working staff. Our school would not exist without your continued and fervent support!
