View the Event Photo Gallery.
The Berriers (Bill ’60, Marge, Jim ’60, Dorothy, Grey ’64 and Judy) played hosts for the day on February 3 in The Villages and a total of 32 alumni, family and friends had a fantastic time because of their generosity and efforts. The outing started with a round of golf on one of the nine-hole executive courses in the community. Jay Gettig ’60 (pictured in the gallery) managed the wind and overcast conditions and posted the lowest round of the day with an impressive one-over-par 29 on the Belmont course.
Following the time on the links, Bill and Marge hosted an afternoon reception at their home. All 32 participants in the day attended the three-hour home gathering and enjoyed appetizers, conversation and memories of Juniata College. Old blue and gold friendships were renewed, while new relationships were established.
The event concluded with dinner at The Legends (an Arnold Palmer restaurant at The Villages). The group was seated together in a semi-private room. Prior to the meal, Director of Alumni Relations Bub Parker ’91 provided an update from the College, thanked those in attendance as well as the hosts and answered questions. Following dinner, those in attendance enjoyed a cake (pictured in the gallery) commemorating this year’s alumni event in The Villages (supplied by the Berriers), while Bill recognized special happenings from the day and thanked everyone for their participation.
Overall, the decades of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s were represented at the event.
