GSA to host Homecoming Weekend
The team to beat: (l-r) Brett Ingraham ‘14, Ron Allen ‘58, John Bannister, and Adam Gray ‘94 won the morning session of GSA’s Homecoming golf tournament last year. The event has been renamed the Duane B. Gray ‘64 Memorial Golf Tournament in memory of Adam’s father, Duane, an avid golfer and GSA alumnus and supporter.

Gray ‘64 Memorial Golf Tournament at Blue Hill Country Club on Sunday.
All community members are invited to an opening reception for the Alumni Fine Art Show on Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to noon in GSA’s Science Wing.
