ll School of Pharmacy graduates are encouraged to mark their calendars for Pharmacy Alumni Weekend to be held in Oxford April 4-5.

“I am greatly looking forward to reconnecting with our alumni during Pharmacy Weekend,” said David D. Allen, the school’s dean. “It’s always a wonderful time of fun and fellowship.”

Planning to celebrate reunions in conjunction with the event are the school’s classes of 1964, ’74, ’84, ’89, ’94 and the Pharm.D. Class of 2004.

The weekend will kick off with the School of Pharmacy Scholarship Golf Tournament on Friday morning. All of the tournament’s proceeds will fund the Pharmacy Alumni Chapter Scholarship, which became fully endowed in 2012. This year’s tournament location and start time are to be announced.

Friday evening, the Dean’s Reception will be held at 6 p.m. in Brevard Hall (formerly Old Chemistry) and hosted by Allen.

Saturday morning will begin with the Continuing Education breakfast at 8 a.m. in the ballroom at The Inn at Ole Miss. The weekend’s continuing education program will immediately follow the breakfast.

The evening’s events will include a 6 p.m. reception followed by an awards banquet and reunion dinner in the Ford Ballroom at The Inn. In addition to honoring reunion classes at the banquet, the school will present its 2014 Distinguished Pharmacy Alumni Awards.

Scott Thompson, assistant director of the alumni association, urges all pharmacy alumni to attend the event.

“Pharmacy Weekend is a great opportunity to catch up with old classmates and make new memories,” Thompson said. “It’s a wonderful, meaningful event that celebrates all of our pharmacy alumni members.”

Registration packets will be sent out in early 2014. For more information, contact Thompson at
