The annual Mid-Winter Gathering for the Central Pennsylvania (CPA) Alumni Club was held on Friday, February 17 at the farm home of Erich Bair '88. The event was a tremendous success with 31 alumni, family and friends in attendance. Alums ranged from the Class of 1939 to the Class of 2005 and there were plenty of familiar and "fresh" faces that gathered at the Bair home in Harrisburg, PA.

Guests began to arrive at 7:00 p.m. and by 7:45 p.m. the house was full of Juniata College stories, memories and experiences. Awaiting those who attended the event was a wide variety and beautiful display of food, including shirmp and desserts, that was spread throughout the entire house, including a large spread in the dining room. If you left the gathering hungry, it was clearly your own fault!

Juniata Associate Vice President for Development Erik Evans as on hand for the event and was welcomed by the CPA club with "open arms". Evans gave a short presentation, updating those in attendance about the current events on College Hill and offered to answer and questions the group had. In addition, Terry Fabian '67 provided information on the choir tour in 2007. During his comments, Erich Bair and Patty Renwick '85, who helped organize and host the event were thanked and presented with gifts from the College.

Decades of the 1930s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s were represented during the evening, including Bob and M.E. Harris, who both graduated from Juniata in 1939.

A special thank you goes out to Erich Bair, once again, and to Patty Renwick for helping setting up the CPA Mid-Winter Gathering.
