Memorabilia Monday: Tower Party Stamp

Starting in the late 1970s, Sid Richardson and Jones College held an annual Tower Party. The joint party came to an end around 1985, but came back as a Sid sponsored party in 1987. It continued until 2007.

While it is unclear how the Socials Committee used this stamp, it is a great piece. We used it in an exhibit last year.

Here is what you could expect at the January 20, 1989 shindig.
