Reunion Weekend 2013
Sporting shorts, tee shirts, and flip flops on a gorgeous, sun-soaked weekend that felt like mid-summer, almost 1,800 Polar Bears came back to campus for Reunion this year. Classmates, family, and friends enjoyed a picturesque train ride up the Maine coast, shared their talents and expertise through “Back to School” talks on subjects ranging from mountain climbing to the Civil War, danced to disco tunes, tasted wines, sang Bowdoin songs, paraded, ate lobster, and caught up with each other on the Quad. At Reunion Convocation, we cheered on three of our own—Bob Lakin ’68, Shelley Hearne ’83, and Jane Foley Fried ’83 were recognized for their service to the College, to the Common Good, and to the field of education—as well as actor, philanthropist, and adopted son of Bowdoin Patrick Dempsey. Through all the festivities of the weekend, alumni and guests reconnected and reminisced with old friends about the special times they shared at Bowdoin.
