Alumnae Association Board
Dear Duchesne Alumna,
Thank you for your continued support of the Duchesne Alumnae Association. Your voluntary membership helps us to promote a spirit of unity with the alums of Duchesne Academy and College.
We are excited to host many events for Duchesne alums this year, including an All-School Reunion on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Come roam the halls of Duchesne, enjoy a luncheon with friends, celebrate Mass in the beloved chapel (now with air conditioning!), and end the day with a chance to connect with classmates at the Wine and Cheese celebration.
Look for invitations to these other annual Alumnae Association Board events, too!
All-School Reunion (September 9, 2017)
“Stuart”ship Day of Service (October 11, 2017)
Alumnae Memorial Mass and Reception (November 7, 2017)
Holiday Liturgy and Reception with Santa (December 3, 2017)
Young Alumnae College Gathering (January 4, 2018)

In addition to these special events, dues to the Alumnae Association support the Sister Mary Pat Ryan Alumnae Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is awarded annually to the daughter of an alum, based on entrance exam scores, prior to her freshman year. In 2017 we were able to donate $5,000 to this fund because of your generosity.
We hope to see you back at Duchesne this year!
We would love to hear from you! We encourage you to “like” us on Facebook and communicate your contact information changes and personal good news and updates by emailing us at email@example.com. Also, let us know if you are interested in volunteering or assisting with Alumnae related events. Many of our events, reminders and updates are communicated through these avenues.
We look forward to creating memories that are sacred to our hearts at Duchesne!
