Warner Pacific College people: It was great to see so many of you at our WP alumni fall picnic last month!
As president of the WP Alumni Association, it warmed my heart to see how many of you alumni showed up for a good time. Even though Portland’s rainy climate persuaded us to move our fall picnic into CC Perry Gym this time, the picnic proved once again to be an event that keeps growing in popularity each year! And it’s easy to see why.
Reconnecting with former classmates and making new friends is the main reason why many of us get together for WP alumni activities. But it didn’t hurt that our WP Alumni Council also threw quite a party for us to enjoy together! Here are some of the festivities from that evening, from an admittedly Hamilton family-centric perspective:
Balloon twisting by Cha-Cha the Clown
Beanbag throw and other games
|Our newest Alumni Council member Cal Fowler, my terrific dad Doug Hamilton, and LaMont Shaindlin grill the hot dogs and burgers.|
…And chowing down on all that delicious food together!
Later that evening, the Portland fire department parked a fire truck in the lower WP campus parking lot. The little ones got to try their hands at spraying the fire hose!
Even with our record setting picnic numbers this year, we hope to bring in even more of you WP alumni and family to our fall picnic next year. And don't forget, Homecoming 2014 is only four months away!
WP Alumni Council President
