Dear Luther College Classmates of 1953,
We celebrated another Homecoming on campus last weekend (October 2–4). In spite of a lot of rain, it was a lovely weekend. The Class of 1959, in connection with their Golden Anniversary, presented a gift of more than a million dollars. When you hear these onward and upward reports, always bear in mind: we were the floor. Without a floor, who can stand, to reach toward higher goals? The past fiscal year our class reached the 40 percent participation level in giving to all funds, an admirable accomplishment. But once again, there’s that floor, this time one from which we can stretch to reach 50 percent, 60 percent, and on. The Annual Fund beckons your response.
