We've had a hallmark year at Central College, and we don't have plans to slow down in 2020! This is the last edition of the Dutch Letter for 2019. We are excited for Central alumni, donors and friends to celebrate the season.
Dutch Letter publication will resume Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020. Have safe, healthy and happy holidays, Steve!
