Moore said while area alumni were interested in Rousseau’s discussion of an insider’s view of the CIA, the attendees were surprised by the depth of common ground they shared based on their connection with OHIO.
“Several of the alumni who attended had never been to an Ohio University gathering since they left Athens,” said Moore, who serves on the University Library’s The Promise Lives Campaign committee. “I think they were struck by the fact that we all had so much to talk about and to share. It’s always great to host an event when everybody has such a good time.”
“Witnessing the reconnection New York-area Ohio University alumni made with one another was inspiring,” said Vice President for University Advancement Bryan Benchoff. “There is a special spark when OHIO alumni connect. We are thankful to alumnus Terry Moore and his wife Lynn for opening up their beautiful home and for hosting such an interesting and engaging event that allowed this reconnection to take place.”
