The Marsh Foundation Welcomes Back Alumni
VAN WERT, Ohio – Once every five years, The Marsh Foundation celebrates its history and invites back the hundreds of alumni who once called the campus home. This coming weekend, on August 1 and 2, The Marsh campus will once again host past students, employees and their families. More than 400 visitors are expected to attend this weekend.
“It’s important to The Marsh to continue the tradition of the alumni reunions,” said Kim Mullins, executive director at The Marsh. “Many alumni consider each other family and we’d like to help them maintain that connection if we can.”
The alumni and guests will enjoy meal and a campus-wide open house. Many enjoy touring the homes that they once lived or worked in to see how they’ve changed, or how they haven’t. Most importantly, it is a time for past students and employees to reconnect and spend time together.
Established as an orphanage and children’s home in 1922, The Marsh Foundation programs have evolved over the past 90+ years. The Marsh continues to serve children who need a home but has expanded its services to include counseling and a more comprehensive treatment program.
This weekend’s events are reserved for former students and employees. A public open house will be held on campus on Sept. 13. More details will be announced soon.
