Cap and Gown in the South Bay

by Robin Murphy

Photo 2Both actives and alumnae came together at Michelle Galloway’s lovely home in Los Altos, CA, on September 26 to kick off the regional celebrations of Cap and Gown’s 110th year.  The day started with the Fall Alumnae Board Meeting and expanded to include about 40 Cap and Gown members from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.  Ellen Petrill helped Michelle host the event, which offered opportunities to renew friendships and make new acquaintances spanning the generations.  Kathryn Kilner, President of the Alumnae Board, welcomed attendees and facilitated icebreaker activities that effectively ensured that everyone met someone new. It was a wonderful occasion that brought together Stanford women from current actives to members who could share stories of the university in the 1940’s.  We were thrilled to connect and become better acquainted with this diverse group of Stanford leaders.  Many thanks to everyone who contributed to such a successful event!
