Happy Anniversary 5s and 0s!

Description: 

The Class of 1962 celebrated their Golden Anniversary in 2012.  The class has contributed the largest golden anniversary class gift to date. 

Body: 
Your class anniversary is a very special time - a time to remember your earlier years and reflect on all the things that you have gained from your time spent in the classrooms, on the playing fields and in the residence halls of the University. It is a time to look back and, most importantly, an opportunity to give back!   If you graduated in a year ending in a 5 or 0, it's your anniversary--a time to celebrate and a time to commemorate.   In honor of your class anniversary, please consider making a contribution of $5 or $10 for each year you are celebrating in tribute to the role DSU has had in preparing you for success.  However, every dollar counts.  Whatever you are most comfortable giving will go toward a class gift to be used to help DSU students meet the financial challenges of starting and staying in school.   If you would like to make incremental contributions over several weeks or months, you may wish to make a pledge or arrange automatic payments through your bank. Be sure to indicate your class year in the comment section where indicated on the form. Once your contribution has been received, you will get a letter from the DSU Foundation, Inc. that you may use for tax purposes.   On behalf of DSU students, we thank you for your response and for your contribution. Again, Happy Anniversary!
