Shake a Tail Feather! – As members of the Class of 1960 exited the traditional event in which members of the graduating class are inducted into the Alumni Association and toasted by the Golden Anniversary Class, Richard "Moe" Maloney '60 joined some of his soon-to-be fellow alumni from the Class of 2010 in exuberant dance. The May 20 event, held under a tent on Bapst Lawn, was hosted by the Senior Class Gift Committee. Maloney and the rest of the Golden Eagles will join about 5,000 other alumni and family members at Reunion Weekend June 4-6. (Photo by Rose Lincoln)
