The School of Education 50th Anniversary Gala dinner kicks off the weekend’s festivities on Thursday night, followed by Friday’s National Alumni Board Golf Tournament, a bus tour along the Hood River Fruit Loop, the Purple Flamingo Happy Hour reception, and the Late Night Talent Pub. Saturday features the Old Stomping Grounds 5K run, the 50 Year Club Mass and Lunch, a Men’s Basketball Alumni game, Saturday Academy classes for school-age kids, a bike tour of North Portland, a story session with Brian Doyle, receptions for the classes observing quinquennial anniversaries, and the signature event of the weekend, the Fiesta Forever Dinner and Dance.
