50th Reunion Memory Book

We are preparing a Reunion Memory Book for your class as a keepsake of your 50th reunion. You can complete your Memory Book entries as part of the online registration form or at a later time. The registration portion of the form will capture the needed personal information, followed by spaces where you can share your story and memories of Westmont and also upload two photos. You can save your work and return to the Memory Book entries as many times as you need by accessing the unique link in the email response form you will receive when you save your work the first time.

You may purchase a copy of the Memory Book on the registration form.

Class Gift to Westmont

You will receive a class gift letter in the spring, and we hope you will consider participating on the occasion of your 50th Reunion. Class percentage participation is more important than a monetary goal, so please consider a gift of any size! Any gift you make between June 1, 2017 and May 31, 2018 will count toward your class gift.

And gifts of any amount will be counted toward the class participation goal. Since this is your 50th reunion, why not make a gift as a multiple of $50 ($50, $500…)? If you’re married to a Westmont classmate, your gift counts as two gifts. And if you married someone in an earlier or later class, then each of you will get credit for your respective classes. When you make a gift online, credit will automatically be given to your class.
