Alumni and friends of King College are invited to join in the upcoming 86th celebration
of Dogwood Weekend on April 20-23, 2012. The annual celebration offers classmates
and friends of the College opportunities to gather, reminisce, and reconnect.
Dogwood Weekend is a favorite event of so many, one the King students and alumni look
forward to each year, said Finley Green, director of alumni and career services for
King. We have wonderful, diverse and accomplished alumni, and welcoming many of them
home to share in this weekend is a cherished experience.
Events for the weekend include such favorites as the Jay Baumgardner Memorial Golf
Classic, Alumni Luncheon, picnic on the Oval, cornhole tournament, alumni volleyball
game, catch and release fishing tourney, production from King's Performing Visual
Arts (PVA) department, Hall of Fame induction ceremony, lecture by the New York best-selling
author of the Mitford series, and much more.
The Jay Baumgardner Memorial Golf Classic will take place on Friday, April 20 at The
Club (Country Club of Bristol). Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start
at 10 a.m. and an awards reception at 3 p.m. Each player will receive giveaways and
a boxed lunch. In addition to the tournament, there will also be a putting contest
with the members of the winning team each receiving a $100 Visa gift card. Members
of the winning team for the tournament will win gift certificates to The Club Pro
Shop. Other prizes include $10,000 cash prize for a hole-in-one on a designated hole,
plus three additional prize holes where a hole-in-one wins either Panasonic 32 LCD
TV, Nike Irons, or a $500 Visa gift card.
We are delighted with the level of participation in this year's Golf Classic, said
Chief Development Officer John King. In addition to a day filled with great camaraderie,
tournament funds are designated towards scholarships for area students.
King Theatre closes out its season with its annual Dogwood Playhouse production, the
family-friendly musical, A Year with Frog and Toad. Younger audiences and the young
at heart will love the heart-warming and toe-tapping adventures of Frog, Toad, and
all their friends.
I have the best memories of reading the Frog and Toad books with my brother when I
was a little girl, and now I am reading the stories to my own kids, said Elizabeth
Lee Dollar, chair of the Performing Visual Arts department and director of the Theatre
program at King College. Having the opportunity to bring Frog and Toad to life on
the stage to an even greater audience is an incredible gift. I hope it encourages
more folks to read these awesome stories and to find creative ways to bring them to

downtown Bristol. Dates and times are Thursday, April 19 at 7:30 pm, Friday, April
20 at 8:00 pm, and Saturday, April 21 at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $10 general admission,
