A HISTORICAL EVENT IS TAKING PLACE
On the Whittier College campus (adjacent to the Rock)
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26TH AT 6:00 P.M.
That’s right you heard it here first! The Lancer Society is being recognized for its service to Whittier College. As many of you know, the Lancers have begun work to relocate and preserve the Rock. As a gesture of appreciation and recognition, the College will be holding an Unveiling and Rededication Ceremony during Whittier Weekend celebrating the Rock’s 100th Anniversary and its relocation by the Lancer Society.
A commemorative plaque will also be revealed for the first time during the celebration. The plaque will be placed at the Rock’s original site, and it recognizes the Lancers role in helping to preserve the Rock’s iconic image, rich history enduring symbolism.
Please come join your Lancer Brothers and be a part of history. We ask that you please wear your Lancer colors as we’ve contracted with a film crew to make a documentary memorializing this event for posterity’s sake. This promises to be a huge event, so don’t miss out!
Dear Fellow Lancer Alum:
You may not know it yet, but the Lancer Society is posed on the precipice of a historic, once-in-a-lifetime moment and we’re personally inviting you to come join us and be a part of it all.
This year’s Whittier Weekend is going to be exceptional because the College is celebrating its’ 125th anniversary. Also, the College will be celebrating the Rock’s 100th anniversary. But what’s even more special about this year’s Whittier Weekend is the College will be recognizing the Lancer Society for its charitable service to the College. That’s right! During a Rededication Ceremony commemorating the relocation and restoration of the iconic Rock the College will be recognizing the Lancer Society for its service. In fact, the College is even placing a commemorative plaque (which will be revealed for the first time during Homecoming Weekend) at the site of the Rock’s original resting place which acknowledges the Lancer Society’s service to the College. All of this is taking place during Homecoming weekend commencing on Friday, October 26th and we’d really enjoy having you come join us in celebration for what promises to be an extraordinary moment in Whittier College/Lancer history.

On Campus News from the Actives
With our new wave of young actives, it is our job to continue Lancer's legacy on campus with a constant strive towards Academics and Athletics success. We are continuing to be engaged in community service project and reaching out more than ever to help and guide new students to succeed. On the 14th of October all the active members of Lancer will be participating in the AIDS Walk Los Angeles, to promote awareness of the disease and support the effort to find a cure. In our efforts to contribute to the community around us, we can only hope that our tiime put aside for others will encourage other to follow in our example. We will be also be participating in an alcohol education program, and volunteering in an alcohol education seminar for the Whittier College community and campus. While we would like this to be an example of the true spirit of Lancer and foster loyalty to the institution (Whittier College) we also want to be helpful to new students. However as Lancers we wish to instill the motive of service without the desire fore regard. We also look forward to creating the best (as is tradition) social gathering on campus.
