Upcoming Reunions…

The Grand Reunion

Date: June 2-3, 2018

Padua will host The Grand Reunion at the school for graduating classes ending in 3s and 8s, as well as the Golden Bruins (all classes with 50 or more years since graduation). We want to make it easy for alumni to reconnect with their alma mater during these milestone reunion years, so we are bringing the party back to the school.

It will be a “leave the planning” to us event. All you need to do is spread the word, gather the troops, get the band back together, and come have fun!
