Keeping the Spirit Alive

Amidst the gatherings, celebrations and ceremonies of Assumption College’s Reunion Weekend, the Class of 1986 spent time reconfirming their commitment to community service. On June 4, 25 members of the class helped more than 100 Rice Elementary School students plant flowers and assist in landscaping at the school, and then helped to run a small carnival with arts, craft and games for the children.

Blades, the Boston Bruins mascot Blades, the official Boston Bruins Hummer and Pierre, Assumption’s greyhound mascot, also participated in the community service event.

“We’re always proud to see our alumni continue to reflect the values of an Assumption education,” said Assumption’s Dean of Students Bob Ravenelle ’86, who helped organize the event.
