Beach Day sponsored by the Programs Commit- tee, featured free Ben and Jerry ' s ice cream, numerous dance contests, and music courtesy of Ray Boston. All that was missing from this paradise seemed to be the sand and sun . . . for it remained hazy the entire time. Life- guards presided over the affair, cast- ing their gaze over the scantily clad crowd. As additional entertainment. Twister games provided, for many, an hour of crazy turns. All in all. Beach Day was successful in holding off the Fall ... if only for a day.

Indeed, the transformations were convincing. Acts were judged on originality, costume, and all around performance. Needless to say, to the delight of the audience, there was plenty of all three displayed under the bright lights that evening.

On November 6, 1986 the students of Fitchburg e College did jething about it. n though the weather cold and raw, almost students turned out to benefit the hunger relief program, CROP. This year there was a new twist, as green and yellow balloons were released into the sky. the theme, not coincidentally, was " Up, Up and Away With Hunger. " Over 1,000 Balloons were launch the colors and letters of the fraternities an sororities.

This year ' s evening of Winter Magic was no exception as the Ballroom at the Sheraton- Tara, Framingham was glowing with crowds of beautifully dressed people and a feast fit for a king. The band " Geneva, " led by Fitchburg State Alumnus Danny Gorman, played an electrifying set of music which kept even the shyest people moving their feet. King and Queen of the Court were crowned (all enchanted evenings have a King and Queen). As Winter Magic came to a close, it was easy to see that all the hard work put forth by the Class Officers of 1989 amounted to a wonderful success. The title page of the evening ' s program read: " Winter Carnival 1987 . . . Where magical memories are made . . . " Indeed they were. — David Altavilla •Mm k It 1 w n »|! v. 1.

We each may have had different styles, But we shared the same tears, Tears of joy and tears of pain Woven together through the years. Old familiar things must pass To unfamiliar fears. Those we ' ve loved and lost, and those we couldn ' t find, Will fade into the past And serve only to remind us; Change will come despite the pain. People we ' ve known will slip away From us, into the rain, There ' s no way to hold them and make them stay.

Stephen A. Casey SAXIFRAGE ■ 189 Judith Ann Dubour was an active member of the FSC community from 1 983 to J 986. She was known by many through her involvement in the following activities: counseling cancer patients, handicapped students, A.I.D. students and the education of the lay public on handicapped affairs. Many didnt realize the struggle Judy had since the diagnosis of cancer at age 14. She aspired to continue living her life to the fullest, which was seen through her pursuit of education and service to others. Throughout her life she touched many people with her vivacious personality and caring. She will always be remembered for her belief in the importance of the quality of life and not its quantity. She fought hard to maintain this quality for both herself and for others. Her memory will last forever in the hearts of her friends and in the history of FSC through the dedication of Honors Convocation 1 987, in her name. 190 ■ SAXIFRAGE In Memory Of Judith Ann Dubour SAXIFRAGE ■ 191 ■ Spreading The Word BOSTON CATHOLIC TELEVISION CENTER Steven Joyal Lloyd Sampson ' 84 ' 86 Associate Producer Production Technician 193 The Nation ' s Leading Supplier of Business Forms for Small Business NEW ENGLAND BUSINESS SERVICE, INC.
