                                                           August 12, 2010

Dear Fellow Alumni:

       Glad tidings from your beloved Alma Mater! The frenzied preparations and the
attendant excitement for the 109th Founders Day celebrations of Silliman University are
now being felt in all parts of the globe where our alumni are. The unique bond that
Sillimanians have in the so-called Silliman Spirit is felt even more when August comes
and the days lead into the week ushering in the highlights for Founders Day.

        This year, as we reflect on the theme, “Silliman at 109: Raised on Eagles‟ Wings”
(based on Exodus 19: 1-6), let us also take time to rekindle ties with fellow MassCom
alumni. Thus, it is our pleasure to invite you to be with us on Thursday, August 26 for
the following activities:

7:00 a.m. at the East Quadrangle            “Walk Live with Cathy Leonardo Carballo,”

                                            Come in your walking attire. It‟s a 45-
                                            minute, 3-mile walk we will all enjoy. Light
