|I can't believe it...I graduated from Berry College 35 years ago. The weekend of October 2-4, 2009 was my college reunion weekend. My best friend from college, Laura Burton, and I went to the weekend at Berry in Rome, Georgia.
I took the RV and motorcycle for the 7-8 hour drive to Norht Georgia. I arrived on Thursday night, set up the site, and then took a ride on the bike. I forgot just how beautiful the campus is. I took various pictures of the place throughout the weekend and wanted to share them with you.
On Friday night we attended a theatre alumni dinner followed by a production by the Berry Players entitled "Getting Out". We were scheduled to go to the talent show but you know how it is when you are old and it is getting to be 11 o'clock.
On Saturday we drove around Rome in the morning. Then it was up to the mountain campus for the picnic and Grand March. It was very nice to see the youngsters do the march that we did so many years ago. Rome has changed quite a bit...more places to eat and more stores to shop. That evening we attended the Mega Reunion Reception and Dinner at Oak Hill which is the original plantation home of Martha Berry.
On Sunday, I packed up the camper and headed home.
During my visit, I had a great time. I ran into classmates that I haven't seen in 35 years. The campus has grown quite a bit with lots of new buildings... and lots of new money being thrown at the place.
The entire weekend was a charge of adrenaline.
