When can we get back to “normal?” The Alumni Association took a small step on January 6, 2022, inviting Colorado Academy college-age alumni back to campus for lunch. Last year’s event had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.
Despite the below-freezing temperatures, some hardy alumni showed up to enjoy a meal from Café CA. Unable to gather in the Campus Center, due to social distancing requirements for students and faculty, alumni took their lunches to the closest heated tent.
Fortunately, an espresso cart was available for warming coffee, hot chocolate, and chai. Several teachers stopped by the tent to chat with their former advisees and students. Following lunch, alumni dispersed to the Froelicher Upper School, Athletic Center, and the Leach Performing Arts Center to tour the new facility and catch up with faculty and coaches.
Here’s hoping the pandemic will soon be behind us, so that next year’s lunch can return to the Campus Center.
