We hope you had a relaxing, good summer and enjoyed a lovely fall. It was a very special homecoming at Luther this year. There was spectacular fall weather, and the traditional weekend events—Friday evening alumni dinner; Saturday Hoslett lecture, class reunions, and Flamingo Ball; Sunday worship and afternoon concert—were as good as ever. And everything was garnished with the aura of a new era, the inauguration of Paula Carlson as the college’s 10th president being the centerpiece of the weekend. The inauguration ceremony itself was exceptional, with the president’s address being especially memorable. You can watch it online if you wish, at https://www.luther.edu/president/.
