WENHAM, MA—If you are looking for something fun to do to take the winter blues away, then the Bennett Center Family Day for Alumni, family and friends, at Gordon College should be the event for you.

Family Day takes place on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the campus of Gordon College and features events for both families and individuals. From rock-wall climbing at the La Vida Rock Wall to Zumba, Barre, and CrossFit classes, there will be high-energy events for adults & teens as well as opportunities for parents with young children. For the little ones, both a crafting station as well children's story time will be on the schedule of events, giving our alumni parents a time to rest and reconnect with old friends and classmates.

“The Bennett Center Family Day is a wonderful time for alumni and their families to come back to campus to enjoy the athletic facilities, exercise classes, swim in the pool, and climb in the La Vida Rock Gym,” says Peter Bayreuther '07, assistant director of Alumni & Parent Relations. “We hope that this year in particular, alumni stay to cheer-on women’s and men’s basketball, with afternoon games taking place at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m."
