Earth Science Holiday Party December 15, 2007
combined efforts of the Alumni Association and the staff
and students from the Department of Earth Sciences resulted
in a nice get together for all with their families and
friends. Many thanks to Dr. Maurrasse's gracious hosting
of the event at his home, Barbara Maloney's decorating
persistence, Bonnie's piano playing, and all of those
involved who made this event such a nice evening combining
good company and food. The weather was fantastic and
it was a pleasure to see the coming together of staff,
alumni, and students, all enjoying the evening and relaxing
over the holiday break.
