Alumni and friends are invited to join us for our annual dinner gathering on Friday, May 12. Your RSVP is free and saves your seat for the fellowship and presentations. Pay just $5 upon arrival (cash or check to MLC) to enjoy a delicious cafeteria meal. In addition to the meal, you’ll have time to visit with old friends, meet other alumni, and hear presentations on MLC programs and progress. Graduates from 1973 and earlier who RSVP in advance are our guests…no payment necessary.

Registration and social hour kick-off at 4:00 pm in the Luther Student Center’s Cafeteria Conference Center. We’ll take our seats for a formal welcome and prayer at 4:30, then partake of the cafeteria’s buffet-style dinner. Presentations will begin at 5:30 and conclude around 6:30.
