Alumni Memorial Service program

The Alumni Memorial Service includes a Procession of Flowers, in which participants bring forward a single flower and place it on a memorial wall. In exchange, the participant receives a flower-seed bookmark in memory and in honor of the beloved friend, family member, classmate or colleague who has died.

  • 'A Strong Reminder'

    "While I donate to Bates every year, Reunion years provide a particularly strong reminder of the significant impact Bates has had on my life. It would be impossible to repay all I received. Hopefully the little I've given back will help someone else have as fond memories as I do."

    —Carol Spencer '74



  • 'History Repeats Itself'

    Years ago, Maralyn Davis Mazza '49 attended her 5th Reunion with a Bates relative who was celebrating her 65th Reunion. This year, Maralyn observed her 65th, and granddaughter Courtney Stachowski '09 was enjoying her 5th. "History repeats itself, and I love it," Maralyn said.
