The Marbridge Community will mark its 60th year of existence in 2013 with a variety of on-campus events that will commemorate several decades of its history.

To reserve a spot at an upcoming JAM Session, contact Suzanne Johnson at 512-282-1144, or visit http://www.marbridge.org and register via email.
