I had to be in Kansas City on the day of the Society of 1895 luncheon at Wichita State University. Fortunately, Brian was able to attend for the both of us. This is a selfie that he sent me on his way to the event.
Brian snapped a few photos while he was there, including one of his name tag.
He was texting me the photos to make me feel like I was there with him also.
Since this was kind of my thing, Brian didn’t want me to miss out.
It looked like a great turn out. I found out after the fact that Jill Frasco and Bill Moore were both at the event, which made me feel really bad for missing out.
Brian took a picture of the little blurb they printed about us in the program, but also took home a couple of the programs (one for us and one to give to grandma).
Here’s what the cover of the program looks like.
Brian ended up sitting with Lou Heldman, one of my most favorite WSU figures.
Lou made sure that Brian left with an extra one of the parting gifts that all the guests received at the event so I would have one as well.
Brian took a photo of the fancy-looking framed certificate that we received, which he accepted for the two of us.
Here he is with Wichita State University President John Bardo and the President of the Wichita State University Foundation Elizabeth King.
I think this is one of the official event photos.
You can see more photos from the event on the Wichita State University Foundation Facebook page here. To learn more about the Society of 1895 and the Wichita State University Foundation’s Planned Giving options, click here.
