A Suggestion From Nguyen Minh CHAU…

…for fund raising for our 60th Reunion Class Gift. Great idea, Chau! We might all take this to heart and act on it. Mount Holyoke will definitely benefit!

Dear All,
I was very saddened to read about the recent deaths of some of our classmates. Such events remind me about how fortunate that Mount Holyoke gave me the good fortune to be a member of the Class of 1960. Without that precious gift, I would not have been able to enjoy all that my life has brought to me to date, and the wonderful friendships that I have enjoyed from a number of my classmates.
In the last few weeks, I have been toying about seeking out and collaborating with some classmates to create a fun “pun” to make our 60th Anniversary an extra money-making benefit for MHC — based on the fact that the year 2020 would mark the 60th anniversary of the graduation of our class (1960) – double 60’s. In brief: “60-60”. Applying this “pun” to raising funds for the college, a “commemorative donation” in 2020 would be US$6,060 — which could be made by individuals donors, or raised by a self-organized group.
Warm regards,
