Dear Concordia Alumna/us,
Your support and presence in the last few months has been so encouraging. Together, we celebrated our fellowship and service at baseball and football games in Ft. Wayne; pastors conferences in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan; a homecoming alumni service day, football game and social on campus; Facebook posts recalling Boar's Head memories - what a joy it is to serve you! As we look forward to new Christmas traditions on campus and more that we will do together in the new year, may God work through us to bring his word to the world!
In His Service,
Laura Thomas
Director of Donor Relations

Will you help us make these improvements?
This year marks the 40th performance of Concordia University Ann Arbor's annual Boar's Head Festival.  To commemorate this momentous anniversary, several alumni will return to perform on stage and work behind-the-scenes as crew members for the Friday performance.  We are seeking financial support to help restore and purchase additional costumes, as well as update the scenery to enhance the celebratory atmosphere of the festival, which will also honor the founders of the event at CUAA.  Rev. Dr. Paul Foelber and Prof. Quentin Marino plan to attend the Friday night performance.
Please visit our crowdfunding page to make your donation.

The Earhart Manor and grounds will be transformed into a home filled with Christmas cheer and a Christkindlmarkt complete with a festival of trees, entertainment for all ages and children's activities. There is still time to volunteer, become a sponsor and share your gift of music or dramatic skill.
