Alumni Reunion Picnic

Originally posted by Rheanna I. Foley

On August 10th the alumni of the Cornell Chapter held their annual reunion picnic. This year it was held at Jim and Lois Carter’s cottage on the banks of Seneca Lake. Three active members of our chapter, Rheanna Foley, Rain Hennessey, and Nick Culver, went to the picnic to help set up and keep everything running smoothly. It was a great opportunity for us to improve relations with our alumni. It was also a great opportunity for the alumni to gather and maintain their connection with AZ.
