· The class notes submissions in the Washington College magazineare certainly a great thing for us alumni to do! Isn’t that the first part of the magazine you read? Aren’t you looking to see what isnew with Jenn? Or to know what Ian has been doing since graduation? Maybe you would like to knowthat Rebekah just moved nearby!? You are also checking out the photos of our classmates weddingsand new additions to “2003 family!” You could be the highlight in the next issue, if you get it in beforeApril 15th!!! (Send you submission via email: classnotes@washcoll.edu. Because of space limitations we cannot publish every photo we receive, but you improve your chances if your digital photos are ofgood quality and at least
300 dpi
at a canvas size of 3x5.)· Also, if you haven’t visited our class website (recently)http://2003.washcoll.edu/you shouldcheck it out- the concept is much like a virtual yearbook! (And our own Shane Brill has certainly lefthis mark on this project!)

The announcement ofMitchell B. Reissas the next President of WashingtonCollege was made in December. Mitchell B.

The new
complex is now fully operational and the student, facultyand staff are enjoying every square inch of the new dining facility. (Are you asjealous as I am?!)·
The Alumni House Renovation is complete with a new entertainment porch. The$150,000 anonymous matching grant made a huge difference in attracting alumni giftstotaling over $150,000.·
Spring 2010 enrollment includes 1,226 undergrads and 54 graduate students!Want to help recruit strong applicants to WC- you canvolunteerwith our classmateJenn Carey!With all these wonderful changes and positive transformations going on at thecollege, it’s a great time to give your annual monetary contribution to the WashingtonFund, or to donate to a more specific area of the college that is near and dear to yourheart. Every donation makes a difference. The college’s advancement website says,“One of the factors that determines if a college can obtain government grants is notonly how much money it raises, but how many donors contribute.” So not only doesevery person count, every gift does add up towards The Washington Fund's $2 million
goal. Please considergiving a donationin any amount you feel comfortable forthis fiscal year (ending June 30th). I find dividing my gift over several months allowsme to make a larger gift without feeling the impact- I buy one less latte a week- andthen I can send $20 a month to Washington College! No matter what you can give,participation in the annual fund is important- and anything you can contribute isgreatly appreciated!
Don’t forget to stay in touch- whether it is through a gift to the Washington Fund,Facebook, or through Class Notes… it’s been some time since we saw each other every day on campus- things change! I hope all is well!  Yours with George,
L. Wayles Wilson ‘03
