To Class Years ending in “8” or “3”: 

Big Bash 2013 is just two days away, and Scarlet Yarns, Your Wabash in Story and Song is back for its sixth reunion year!  If you will be on campus this weekend, we invite you to stop by Lilly Library to tell your own Wabash story, which doesn’t have to be the funniest, or the wildest or the most dramatic.

YOUR memories are what matter to YOU — Favorite Prof, Lively Class, Fraternity or Dorm Life, the Big Game, Old and Lifelong Friends — you don’t have to come with a prepared talk — let Big Bash weekend awaken some memories long forgotten!

Patterned after the Story Corps project heard on National Public Radio, Scarlet Yarns is a collaboration between Ramsay Archives, Alumni Relations, and Wabash Magazine to record on digital video the stories about alumni and  their days at Wabash.  The recordings will be preserved in the Ramsay Archival Center at Wabash, some stories will be transcribed for use in the Wabash Magazine, and a commemorative DVD may be purchased.

The Scarlet Yarns Studio is located on the first floor of Lilly Library.  If you would like to schedule a specific time during the hours listed below, please contact the phone or email below before you arrive. Or,  stop by to tell your story on a first-come basis, where College staff will be on hand to assist in the recording, guided by our media technical specialists.

Friday, May 31, 1:00 – 5:00pm
Saturday, June 1, 9:00-10:45am and 1:00-5:00pm

If you have any questions or to schedule ahead, please contact:
Marilyn Smith, 765-361-6063 or

We hope to see you in the Scarlet Yarns Studio.

Just look for the big red banner at Lilly Library!
