The third week of May brought more than 600 alumni and friends with their families back to Taft's lush and beautiful campus.
Throughout the weekend, smiling faces of alumni and children were everywhere—enthusiasm filled the air as Tafties reunited, sharing stories of their lives both then and now.
And again, excitement was in the air before the bagpipers led the march of classes in the Alumni Parade to an address given by Headmaster Willy MacMullen '78 in Centennial Quad, welcoming the newest members of the Old Guard, the Class of '66, who celebrated their milestone 50th Reunion.
Athletic fields were buzzing with generations of alumni and their families for sports contests, and others enjoyed an organ concert in Woodward Chapel. At sunset, alumni and guests streamed into a festive tent for Dinner at the Headmaster's.
More vignettes: Alumni Golf attracted players for friendly matches; some went to Back to Class sessions to learn from a few Taft faculty members; and the always poignant Service of Remembrance recalled those alumni who had passed away, followed by an elegant Old Guard Dinner.
These are only a few glimpses into Taft's perennial reunion festivities that help nurture the ties that bind.
