Colby Reunion Weekend Begins Friday
Colby graduates from the 1920s to the 1990s will participate in the college's 2002 Reunion Weekend from Friday, June 7, through Sunday, June 9. Events on campus include class dinners and educational panels with alumni and faculty. Golf outings, picnics and a fly fishing trip on the Kennebec River are among the weekend's off-campus activities.
Friday night the Alumni Association will present awards. Earl H. Smith, retiring executive assistant to the president, will receive the Ernest C. Marriner Distinguished Service Award. Allan Van Gestel '57 (Rockport, Mass.) will receive the Distinguished Alumnus Award. James E.

Saturday at 11 a.m. alumni will march in the parade of classes. The Colby College Museum of Art is open to the public the entire weekend.
