Reunions 2009: Return, Remember, Rediscover April 23–26, 2009
Reunions 2009: Return, Remember, Rediscover Reunions 2009 will be a time to join classmates from years ending in a 4 or 9 and come together to celebrate all Madeira has to oﬀer. With School in session and current students on campus, Madeira alumnae, reunion and non-reunion years, are welcome to Greenway to experience the Madeira community and to reconnect with sister alumnae and friends.
What Miss Madeira told her graduates in 1939 about Greenway’s beauty is still true today:
“It will come back to you very vividly, very often when you are in [a] vacant or pensive mood. Other memories will come, too, of friends, of classmates, of teachers… But no memory will be more vivid than the charm of Madeira.” — Strong in Her Girls: The Madeira School Centennial History, 1906 – 2006
During the weekend, Madeira alumnae, family, and friends, have the opportunity to engage with the campus and the entire Madeira community as you enjoy:
