Dear 75 Evelyng, Thank you for your very nice review. We recently had several reunion classes from Mills College join us for a weekend and it sounds like everyone have a great experience. I wish we could take credit for those rowing teams, but they are on their own. It's just great seeing people enjoying the waterway so much. We hope to see you again soon.
