More than 40 Purdue Veterinary Medicine alumni and friends turned-out for the annual Purdue Alumni Reception at the Western Veterinary Conference (WVC) in Las Vegas, Nev.  They renewed acquaintances, visited with PVM faculty who were in attendance, and heard an update on the College and Ever True fundraising campaign goals from Dean Willie Reed.  In some cases, members of a given class would realize they had enough classmates present for a mini reunion.  The reception was held March 5 at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center, which was the site for the WVC Conference.
