Hello everyone! My name is Yvonne Dunkle, and I am a PSD alumna of the class of 79. A particular hello to my fellow 1979 classmates!

PSD is currently located in germantown at a beautiful and historic campus. I attended the campus in Mt. Airy, as many of you did as well. I know that we are no longer in Mt. Airy, but what’s important is that wherever PSD is located, we continue the school’s legacy. When I think back on my time at PSD growing up, I think of it fondly as a second home, as I’m sure many of you do as well. PSD has a special place in my heart, as a kind of family, and as I read the Facebook posts from all of you and you call each other, your brothers and sisters, I know that you think of PSD as family as well. I’m thrilled to announce that PSD is continuing their plan for an in-person Gala this year. It will be held at the Wannamaker building, immediately next to City Hall in Center City, Philadelphia. The price of the ticket is $250 per person, but if you are a PSD alumni – someone who attended PSD – you can register for the gala at half price; so your ticket is only $125. That ticket price includes free parking, unlimited drinks and beverages, appetizers, a cocktail hour, an entree during the reception, a souvenir, dessert, and the evening entertainment. We hope it will be a fun time together. You can purchase your ticket by going to the PSD website at Select “PSD 200” and fill up the registration for your ticket. There’s also additional information online. If you cannot come to the gala that’s okay but be sure to visit the website anyway to donate to the school. It’s important to show our support. This school has given so much to us, this is one way to give back to the school and to the community, to continue supporting them as they have supported us all these years.

We hope you’ll come to the Gala to help us celebrate PSD and over 200 years of history. I will be there, and I hope to see you there as well.
