It was definitely a party when 35 alumni, students and special guests came together on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in the lounge at Whitman House to celebrate the 106th Annual Tully Tea at Acadia University. Current Tully residents were delighted to listen to and share stories over tea and sweets with alumni during this special semi-formal event. Manager, Alumni Affairs (Acting) Oonagh Proudfoot (’93, ’06) brought greetings and Executive Director, Philanthropy, Nancy Handrigan (’92) provided news on development and student support initiatives and an update on Campaign for Acadia, the most ambitious fundraising effort in Acadia’s history. She also introduced Acadia’s Dean of Arts, Dr. Laura Robinson (’88), who gave a very entertaining talk on her Acadia experience. Laura noted that her older sister, Alva, was also at this year’s event. Alva lived in Tully and is the Life Secretary for the Class of ’77. Alumni representing classes from the 1940s to present day attended the 2020 Tea.
