About 100 former physical education majors returned
to Winthrop in March for a weekend reunion called "A
Farewell to Peabody - Peabody Moves West." The old
gym will be demolished this summer after completion
of the Lois Rhame West Health, Physical Education
and Wellness Center. The farewell was a time for
alumni to say goodbye to the building, revisit old
friends and tour the new center.
