Area alum­nae, par­ents of cur­rent stu­dents, cur­rent stu­dents, and for­mer and cur­rent fac­ulty and staff of Jud­son Col­lege will be ven­tur­ing to the Marion-based cam­pus to cel­e­brate J-Day 2017 this com­ing Fri­day and Satur­day.

On Fri­day night, the class of 1967 will be hon­ored and in­ducted into the Golden Club — which sig­ni­fies the 50th an­niver­sary of the class’ grad­u­a­tion.

Satur­day’s events will in­clude the recog­ni­tion of out­stand­ing alum­nae, a state of the col­lege ad­dress by Pres­i­dent David Potts, a busi­ness meet­ing, a spe­cial lun­cheon, and the tra­di­tional steps­ing with stu­dents and alum­nae singing the songs known by gen­er­a­tions of Jud­son stu­dents. (Jud­son was founded in 1838 — thus there are many mean­ing­ful tra­di­tions cel­e­brated on the cam­pus).

Reser­va­tions for each of the events may be made by tele­phon­ing the alum­nae of­fice — 334683-5109 or 334-683-5167.

On Satur­day, Sam­ford Univer­sity’s Cum­ber­land School of Law will be salut­ing grad­u­ates of 50 years ago and more. A break­fast and fel­low­ship time — com­plete with shar­ing of mem­o­ries — will be the or­der of the morn­ing. Reser­va­tions may be made by tele­phon­ing the Cum­ber­land alumni of­fice.

April is clean-up month in the Land of Chero­kee.
