Fall Fest 2013

Our first annual Fall Fest was a wonderful celebration; bringing alumni, former staff, as well as current students, families, and staff together to re-connect and make new friends.

The Friday evening concert featuring professional musicians Eric Engerbretson ‘82 (eric-e), Perry and the Poorboys (Perry Springman ’82), and current student Joakim Gissberg was a lively combination of amazing music, worship and laughter.

Saturday’s brunch included inspiring student stories along with an engaging message by President John Reed. Fun was had at the soccer field with a men’s and women’s coed scrimmage, ultimate frisbee and Eagle Dash, while others opted for time to hang out on campus to visit.

The celebration closed with an ice cream social served up by current faculty, followed by a beautiful closing worship service.

Thanks to all who participated and attended! Save the date for next year – October 10-11.

What folks are saying about Fall Fest

"The Fall Fest concert was a wonderful experience for me, especially because I got to see the kind of fabulous talent that comes out of Trinity Lutheran College. I love that my little college puts on super fun events like this concert where we got to laugh, listen to great artists, and worship together!"
- Katharine Coleman, current student

"Loved the concert on Friday night. It was nice to see the closeness of the alumni of Trinity Lutheran and how much they influenced each other's lives. I can only hope that our daughter feels the same way 20 some years from now."
- Patty and Bob Stillmaker, parents of current student Robin

"It was amazing to realize that the rich Christian community I experienced at LBI decades ago is still alive, in Christ. What a gift to reminisce together and recount God's blessings!"
- Faith Lefsrud Maier '81

"It was pure delight for us to visit with former students and staff during the weekend of the Fall Festival. It made us realize that friendships made at Trinity can last a lifetime. Trinity has gone through a lot of changes. It was reassuring to hear that some things have not changed such as Trinity's commitment to Scripture and Christian service and providing the students with a loving community."
- Dean Emeritus Lowell '65 and Dianne '66 Stime

"Hearing the Trinity Chamber Ensemble reminded us of singing in the choir, hours of practice, beautiful music, concerts, tours and building friendships which have lasted over 50 years. Thanks be to God!"
- Les and Connie Foss '62
