Alumni Weekend Celebrated at Canterbury

Alumni Weekend Celebrated at Canterbury
Meredith Berry-Toon

Over 160 alumni from class years ending in 4s, 9s, and beyond returned to campus for a three-day Reunion celebration on June 7-9. 

"It's always a pleasure to welcome and entertain alumni at every corner of this hilltop as they renew their ties to one another and to Canterbury,” noted Jen Loprinzo, Associate Director of Advancement and Senior Director of Alumni Relations. “We enjoyed three picture-perfect days and, whether one was celebrating their 5th, 50th, or any other reunion, everyone left this hilltop having rediscovered all that they love about Canterbury." 

The class of 1969 kicked off their momentous 50th Reunion with a celebratory dinner and private reception at O’Connor House to honor their five decades of committed affiliation with the School. Following, on Friday evening, alumni of all years celebrated Canterbury with Spirits at Sheehan, a festive s’mores and beer tasting event. The back porch of Sheehan lit up with a fairytale-esque glow and bonfires to roast golden goodness. 

Saturday’s sunny morning was the perfect backdrop for the Parade of Classes, led by the class of 1969. The day continued with the announcement of the Hall of Fame inductees for the upcoming fall 2019 ceremony. The Canterbury Lacrosse Association hosted their annual competitive alumni game for alumni across decades of graduating years (including recent 2019 alumni and future collegiate athletes!) to face-off during a friendly competition. The weekend concluded with a farewell brunch on Sunday morning—a sunny end to a weekend full of reminiscing and creating new memories!
