The Class of 1975 joins the ivy stone tradition

Thursday, May 4, 2006 12:00 am

Thirty-one years ago, the Class of 1975 graduated from Bates without giving an ivy stone to the College. But '75 never forgot, and in 2005 the class celebrated its 30th Reunion by giving an ivy stone to the College. Designed by Diane Kounkoulas Peterson '75, the stone arrived over the winter and on May 4, 2006, Bates head mason Wilfred Chouinard installed the plaque.
