May 10, 2010
A dinner recognizing members of Mount Union's 1846 Society for their generous support of the College's Annual Fund was held at The Alliance Country Club on Friday, September 8.
Gary Adams '75, a member of the Mount Union College Board of Trustees and president of the Greater Cleveland Auto Association, was master of ceremonies for the evening. He welcomed all in attendance and thanked everyone for helping make the 2005-2006 Annual Fund a success. Carl Gartner '60, who serves as co-chair of the Annual Fund and a member of the Mount Union College Board of Trustees offered the invocation.
Kimberly (Terrill '99) Rodstrom, director of annual giving programs, took the opportunity to thank members of the 1846 Society for their support.
'Thank you for your dedication to the Annual Fund on what was a record breaking year for the Annual Fund and for Mount Union College, ' said Rodstrom. ' Last year, members of the Mount Union community, lead by members of this group, showed their extreme generosity and dedication, helping us raise $ 1,226,038. These gifts continue to be put to use on campus, helping our students both in and out of the classroom as they reach their highest potential and beyond.'
'We are grateful to you for your loyalty and support and hope that you will continue to keep Mount Union at the top of your philanthropic interests,' remarked Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College. 'We probably don't stay 'thank you' often enough, but we want you to know how much we appreciate your support.'
Justen Stickley '07, a sociology major from North Canton reflected on his experiences at Mount Union College. He thanked the numerous donors for their money and support that have allowed him to be a student at such a great college.
