The unthinkable happened—it rained on Homecoming & Reunion weekend. But no worries. Friday’s Homecoming Banquet was a gala event, celebrating both the Walter Reger Award presentation to Jim Frey ’78 as well as the public announcement of Forward Ever Forward, the Campaign for Saint John’s. On Saturday morning, alumni, family and friends hung out in Sexton with coffee and read The Record or broke out the ponchos and umbrellas to brave the drops. The rain stopped right on cue for the football game vs. Concordia, where Jeff Korsmo ’80 received the Bob Basten Award for Leadership and Excellence at halftime. By the time the aftergame party started, the sun was shining on another unforgettable Saint John’s Celebration on the Tundra. 31
