U of M Alumni Association Will Host Garden Party September 22nd on the Lambuth Campus

For release: September 5, 2012
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901-678-2843

The University of Memphis Alumni Association will honor a group of “golden graduates” and supporters at a garden party Saturday, Sept. 22, on the Lambuth Campus. Activities will be held in the courtyard area in the center of the campus, located at 705 Lambuth Blvd. in Jackson, Tenn.

The event will begin at 1:30 p.m. with a garden party; light refreshments will be served. The Lambuth University Class of 1962 will be inducted into the Half Century Club in a ceremony following at 2:30 p.m. Members of the class will each receive a medallion welcoming them into the club, a society for graduates of 50 years or longer. A commemorative brick-laying ceremony at 3 p.m. will close the day’s activities.

All alumni and friends are invited to attend. The event is complimentary, but reservations are required, no later than Sept. 13. To reserve a place, email hbegonia@memphis.edu or call 800-678-TRAX (8729).

The University of Memphis opened its Lambuth Campus in August 2011 at what was formerly Lambuth University. The commemorative bricks were purchased by Lambuth alumni and friends before the U of M’s involvement. “The University is committed to honoring their intent by placing these bricks at the center of the campus,” said Dan Murrell, director of planned giving for the U of M.  “We hope that all Lambuth and University of Memphis alumni will see this ceremony as tangible evidence of the commitment of the University of Memphis to honor the rich history of Lambuth, while embarking on a new era of achievement and success.”

The Lambuth Campus offers a variety of degree programs for undergraduate and graduate students, including education, nursing, English, business and psychology.
