Alumni Day, Saturday, May 5, 2018

2:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

New this year: An On-Campus Evening Cocktail Reception

Alumni Day will start with an Alumni Basketball game to honor the school’s long history of the Hallowell gym. In keeping with a time-honored tradition and an Alumni Day favorite, all guests are invited to attend the Alumni Meeting for Worship in the Meeting House.  A new and very exciting addition to this year’s Alumni Day will be celebrating the ceremonial groundbreaking of the Richard N. Berman Athletic Center. An evening reception for both the alumni reunions as well as this momentous occasion for AFS will take place on campus following the groundbreaking. Beer, wine and hors-d’oeuvres will be served, free of charge, at 5:30 p.m. in the Faulkner Library and class photos will be taken during the reception.
