It was an awesome weekend (6 and 7 August 2016), as the MLML alumni, and current and past staff, faculty, and students assembled, talked, laughed, and celebrated. We had 450 people here on Saturday, and given that most of the people attending were probably alumni, that means about 50% of our 640 graduates were here. That's an amazing turnout. The students made $2,050 via various events that will go to student scholarships. So you have helped the student cause in a big way.
I will be getting a large number of photos from the professional photographer next week, so this week is just a tease of random shots before next week's photo blog. I hope you enjoy.
We took pictures of each lab. We had fun and made music under the tent. We had grads from the 1960s and early 70s who attended MLML just after the lab began. And they created their own t-shirts for the occasion.
The Quilt Quild produced three quilts for a raffle to generate funds for the Signe Lundstrom Memorial Scholarship Fund that supports MLML students. They raised $2,000.
It was great seeing everyone, and we missed all of you that could not be here. The whole weekend was a blast. Next week's blog will be lots more pictures. Way to go MLML!
