A couple of weeks ago, the entire DAR staff met for a retreat featuring several options for classes as well as an Engaging Minds type forum with guest speakers and Penn Integrates Knowledge Professors, Jonathan D. Moreno and Ezekiel Emanuel. We also heard a very moving speech by Dean Richardson of the Penn Vet School who spoke about treating the famous race horse, Barbaro. The presentations were awesome, the food was delish, and the icing on the cake was that Alumni Relations won the photo contest. Just so you’ll understand what we did, the name of this year’s conference was The Kentucky DAR-by (n part because the Kentucky Derby was happening right around that time). So, a few members of our staff got together and brainstormed how we could do a photo around this theme. Below are the results Thanks to everyone on the DAR Planning Committee–we all had a great time, got to connect with one another and to meet new people, and I think all felt even more Penn pride by the end of the day.
