September 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

1.       MHC’s 175th Anniversary – wow!  We would love to plan a service project in honor of this momentous anniversary.  We hope to work with a women-centric organization, and need at least one Alum to step forward and help the club organize this service project.  We are putting out this call for volunteers to lead an event for the club.  Perhaps a volunteer effort like organizing a Dress for Success donation – just one suggestion, all ideas are welcome – take it away!  
2.      MHC Club of Puget Sound Gala – You should have also received a separate invitation to this exciting event – President Lynn Pasquerella ’80 will be there, along with members of the Chicago and Northwest Clubs.  September 29, 2012 at the Women’s University Club in Seattle.  Please contact us ASAP if you did not receive the details – it will be a fantastic party!  To those of you who have received the invitation, please RSVP immediately if you plan on attending.  

3.       Mountain Day!  When you receive your Mountain Day email notice from the Alumnae Association (we will send you a reminder too) please join us at Ruby Jewel Ice Cream at 3713 North Mississippi Avenue, Portland, OR 97227.  We will aim to get together at 18:37 (or 6:30 PM for those who are less particular) to reminisce and visit with each other!  Also for Alums in Ashland and Eugene, if you would like to name a spot and send us an email we’d be happy to announce your get together as well!

4.       Prospective Student Reception – Another year, another round of prospective students!  This has always been one of our most successful events and this year will surely be no exception.  Come share the MHC spirit with prospective applicants.  Alix Meier Goodman ’75 has graciously offered to host the event on Monday, October 29, 2012, 7-8:30 p.m., at her home in SW Portland.  Emily Allyn from the Admissions Office  will also be in town for the event!  Please save the date, more details to follow.

5.       Back on the Happy Hour track with our “L” venue – Thursday,  November 8, 2012 at La Brasserie Montmarte – – 626 SW Park Ave, PDX, 97205, 5:30-7:00 p.m. – Hope to see many of you there!

6.       Bring on the leadership/volunteer offers and ideas for the club!  There are an infinite number of ways we can enjoy each other’s company and MHC spirit!  To keep the club operating smoothly, and to expand the type of events we hold, we ask any of you who are interested in helping with the operation of the Club or in holding a particular event to please contact us.  If you have an idea and/or would like to lead in any area please say the word and we can help you get into action.  Many people have expressed a desire to focus on networking/career building efforts; it would be great to hear more ideas on that.  And so much more!  We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Deborah Olsen ’65 for all her efforts in organizing the Mount Holyoke Club of Portland Book Club.  Also we would like to thank Kristin Hansen ’11 who has stepped forward to help the club communications and administrative capacities.
