Throughout the year, Row New York hosts events to keep our alumni community strong and active. Last week we welcomed alumni to our new office. The day was full of memories, hugs, and reflection. The day would not have been the same without our wonderful Alumni and College Success Manager, Regina De Los Santos, who welcomed in students, some home from colleges as far as Ohio and Florida.
What is a recent achievement you’re proud of?
During the event, former rowers shared their proud moments, such as earning a license, graduating, and reading some great books. It was wonderful to see such a strong sense of pride and accomplishment among our alumni.
What is your favorite Row New York memory?
We also took a walk down memory lane by telling stories about winning races, terrible weather, capsizing boats, pool parties and college trips.
Medals were awarded to some alumni who were especially helpful in the recent months. Alana Roberto and Nicole Doyle received medals for their stellar work for the Harlem River Classic. They each led a team of alumni to fundraise and race at NYC’s only regatta. Thank you to Alana, Nicole, those who raced and everyone else who helped!
After an exciting raffle, Amanda Ramdeholl and Kelly Arango won movie tickets. Join us next time for your chance to win!
