Thank you to all TU alumni in San Diego for helping us establish a successful local chapter!

A recap of alumni events in 2010-11

Last fall the San Diego chapter held its third-ever alumni event, welcoming new participants on a wine tour of Temecula, CA. Despite the record heat wave, TU alumni enjoyed a variety of wines from some of Southern California's finest vineyards as they became better acquainted with fellow Trinitonians and reminisced about the campus and favorite hangout spots around San Antonio.

The San Diego chapter was excited to have a fantastic showing at our first Making Connections event. Nearly half of the current San Diego students were in attendance as well as students and alumni from nearby Orange County. Parents, students, spouses, and alumni gathered to make new connections and reconnect with friends from the past. The event was hosted at the home of Fritz Hesse ’87 and Cindy (Guldan) Hesse ’87. It is exciting to see this chapter getting off the ground to a great start. Go Trinity!

During Trinity’s annual national community service campaign, Trinity Cares, the San Diego chapter partnered with The San Diego River Park Foundation to pull weeds and beautify the walking paths throughout the Point Loma Native Plant Garden. It was a great opportunity to look into the history of the region and observe many rare and endangered plants as this is one of the few remaining gardens home to flora not found anywhere else in the world.

In the spirit of our alma mater's local fiesta season, eleven alumni and their families came out to North Island Naval Station to celebrate a Day in Old San Diego. The "Spanish Colonial Revival" architecture of the officer's quarters and historic I-Bar proved to be a wonderful setting for the fiesta-themed afternoon. Many parents were able to connect as their children played together. Another highlight included the fortuitous timing of 2 active marines and current alumni, First Lieutenant Chris Latimer and operations officer Zach Flechsig, who were able join us for the festivities.
