The first San Diego Area Alumni get-together was held at the Doubletree by Hilton at the Hazard Center in Mission Valley. Regional Coordinator Diane Just reports that the light and lively crowd enjoyed wine and yummy cheese trays, but most of all enjoyed meeting and talking with each other and the instant camaraderie.
For most, there was a sense of “coming home” — finally finding like-minded souls who speak the same language.
They were joined by Alumni Association Associate Director Dianne Travis-Teague, who added warmth and humor, as well as by PGI Founding President and new Chancellor Dr. Stephen Aizenstat, whose wit and comments added to the fun. He let us know that this reunion was one of many being enjoyed by Pacifica alums across the country, and how important our new Alumni Association website is and will continue to be in our ongoing process of connection.
The group was having so much fun that only when the hotel staff physically dismantled and removed the tables were they reluctantly willing to disband. Cards, numbers, and hugs were exchanged.
