Chairman’s Cocktail Party

Friday, December 9th, 2011 at 6:29 pm

The year concluded with another impressive Chairman’s Cocktail party.  The Chairman gave a brief report on the year that was and a synopsis of progress in various areas. He also outlined plans for 2012 and into the future.  He thanked the staff for their dedication and loyalty to the Graduate Union.

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of $9000 from the Trustees of the William Berry Trust (Miss Barbara Funder and Mrs Heather Kudeviita) to the Chairman of the House Board (Mr Andre Cleghorn). A second highlight was the unveiling of a series of art works celebrating the history of the Graduate Union. The result is stunning in its simplicity. Artist, Deidre Walsh has captured the essence of the Graduate Union in a series of sketches highlighting key events and people over the past century
