To the editor:
As the Clinton Community College Association president, I would also like to welcome alumni, retired and current staff, and friends to attend the annual alumni reunion, Sept. 15, with events to include the Richard Harmon Memorial Golf Tournament, Alumni Bike Ride and an "Evening of Comedy, Cocktails and Conversation."
The day will get under way with the annual Richard Harmon Memorial Golf Tournament at Harmony Golf Course in Keeseville. Tee-times are shotgun starts at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Lunch is also included, and all proceeds go to the Clinton Community College Richard Harmon Full-Tuition Scholarship. Prices are $45 for members and $65 for non-members.
The bike ride will hit the pavement at 10 a.m. The 6-mile course starts at the Alumni Cottage on campus and makes it way out to the Crete Center before finishing back at the cottage. Price is $5 for individuals and families, and free for Clinton students with a student ID.
Headlining the Alumni Reunion is Clinton alumnus Dean Rhodes, who attended Clinton in 1976-77. He has been a professional comedian, having performed in Phoenix and Las Vegas for a number of years after leaving New York.
The distinguished alumnus will also be honored that evening. Tom Middleton is a 1991 graduate who is also an Iraq war veteran. Middleton wrote a book, "Saber's Edge," that describes his time serving in Iraq.
The event will also feature microbrew and wine tasting on the veranda, a DJ to dance the night away and plenty of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres.
Alumni, CCC retirees, faculty, staff and friends of Clinton are invited to attend. The event runs from 6 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $40 each and can be purchased online at ww.clinton.edu/alumni/
alumnihomecoming.cxml or by calling the Alumni Office at 518-561-4195.
I look forward to seeing you on Sept. 15 and welcome you back to the campus!
