Looking for Johnnies in Colorado? Check in with the Colorado Alumni Chapter

President Don Rasure ’64, dmrasure@comcast.net “I decided to start this chapter because I knew there were several guys from my era that had been friends over the years, and whenever I would see one of them, we would immediately talk about Saint John’s. With my involvement with the chapter, I really enjoy helping others reconnect and recall the strong bond that existed during college years.”

Chapter Volunteer Todd Bass ’92, toddbass@hotmail.com “I like being involved with the chapter to help us all reconnect and enjoy the unique bond that Saint John’s and Saint Ben’s provides even when you’re a thousand miles away from Minnesota.”

Alumni and friends enjoyed a day of skiing at Beaver Creek in January followed by a social hour, all organized by Nels Hinderlie ’98, front row, third from right.
