Okay all of you procrastinators out there, time is running out to register for the many special events scheduled for Mountain Day. Next Saturday, Oct. 5, thousands of your fellow alumni will gather on the slopes of Lavender Mountain for the annual celebration of Martha Berry’s birthday. A full schedule and registration details can be found on the alumni relations website. Advance registration closes Oct. 2, so don’t miss out!

Highlights this year include a special tribute to Berry’s historic high schools – the Mount Berry School for Boys, Martha Berry School for Girls and Berry Academy. A reception and dinner will be held Friday, Oct. 4, with other high school-themed events to follow on Saturday. Of particular note is the roll out of A History of the Berry Schools on the Mountain Campus, a much-anticipated book about the high schools written by Dr. Jennifer Dickey (77A, 81C). Copies will be available for purchase throughout the weekend. Jennifer’s sister and fellow academy alumna Angela Dickey (75A, 79C) will be the featured speaker at Saturday morning’s Mountain Day Convocation in Frost Chapel. Angela is the 2013 recipient of the Berry Alumni Association’s Distinguished Achievement Award. High school celebration.

Also on tap is the sixth-annual Mega Reunion, this year hosting alumni from the college and academy classes of 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008. The fun gets under way at 5 p.m. Saturday on the grounds of Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum. Information and registration.

Other events of note include Friday afternoon’s Golf Scramble, Saturday morning’s 5K (this year benefitting Berry’s planned athletic stadium, Valhalla) and, of course, Saturday afternoon’s picnic lunch and Grand March. While you’re on the mountain, don’t forget to check out the many products available from Berry College Student Enterprises.

If you can’t join us in person, we’re pleased to once again offer a Virtual Mountain Day experience featuring streaming video of the Grand March and a live chat function accessible to anyone with a Twitter account. Be sure to include the hash tag #mtnday13 in your tweets.
