ELL, HERE WE are approaching the end of the year, and the holiday season is upon us. As we reflect on the past year, we have a lot to be thankful for. We are thankful for you, our alums, who continue to support our alma mater and the Alumni Association; we are thankful for the nearly 13,000 future alumni on campus; we are thankful for a strong and supportive university and its leadership; and we are thankful for the Alumni Association staff and its past and present leaders, all of whom work tirelessly to connect with you and to raise money for our scholarships. Additionally, we are thankful we survived Homecoming. I hope you were able to get back to Nac and enjoy the Homecoming events. The activities were non-stop, and I am proud to report it was a great weekend. Attendance at the bonfire was an all-time high. Other events also were well attended, and our Lumberjack

football team recorded a “W”. Although I don’t have the final tally for total scholarship fundraising, I do know that, thanks to your generosity and support, we surpassed our fundraising target for several events. We are thankful for all who took part in this year’s Homecoming, and we look forward to doing it again next year. Although the calendar says we are fast approaching the end of 2012, we still have more than six months to go until the end of our fiscal year. So, as you reflect on the past year and start looking forward to next year, I hope you will include us in your plans. We are forever thankful for your past, present and future support of our mission of building a strong Lumberjack network and providing scholarships to deserving students. Happy holidays, and axe ’em, Jacks!
