Villa Maria’s Advancement Office took to the rails for a trip to New York City to host an inaugural Alumnae Networking Social for alumnae in the New York metro area. A crowd of about 30 women turned out at American Whiskey Bar to mingle and reconnect with each other and their alma mater.
“It was fantastic to catch up with over 30 Villa graduates at our inaugural NYC Villa Alumnae Networking social,” said Dee Ruley Person ’95, Villa’s Director of Constituent Relations. “I was surprised to discover that we have approximately 315 alums living in and around the Big Apple. As a few of the alums shared with me, this has become their home, not just where they work. The Villa Advancement office hopes to create Alumnae Chapters in various regions of the country and facilitate quarterly events in Villa alum concentrated areas. The Villa sisterhood is strong and the legacy even stronger.”
If you live in the Boston, Chicago, or in Florida we are looking for alums to help sponsor and coordinate events in these regions. Please contact Dee Ruley Person, `95 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
