Dear alumnae,

Summer is here, and hopefully you're enjoying the warmth and sunshine. The summer months are teeming with volunteer opportunities, and we know the Alverno community is involved, so don't forget to log your hours. Are you taking part in one of the many charity walks/runs or cycling events? Are you volunteering at one of the many ethnic festivals or church festivals? Do you donate your time at a community garden? These activities all count.

Yes, we met and surpassed our initial Caring Counts goal of 125,000 hours, but let's see how far we can go. You can always log your hours at

Thank you, and best wishes for a safe, happy and healthy summer.

Warm Regards,
Kim Muench '89
Assistant Director of Alumnae Relations

As CEO of the New Jersey Girl Scouts, Helen Wronski has many responsibilities. It's almost serendipitous that the Girls Scouts are celebrating their 100th anniversary the same year Alverno is celebrating its 125th anniversary. Of Alverno's 125th anniversary, Wronski says, "I am Alverno College, now 125 years, part of its history, vision and future." To read Helen's entire story click here.
