Calling all friends, family and alumni – You’re invited to celebrate Vanguard’s 55th! We’ve got special plans in store for our birthday this year and we’ll be kicking the festivities off with a Virtual Birthday Party on Sunday, March 6th!

You’ll enter the party as a customizable avatar, mingle with other guests face-to-face, and explore a specially customized space with Vanguard themed slideshows, trivia and games! Featured events include a live talk with Executive Director, Jeremy VanWert, a glimpse into the Vanguard Historical Society’s Decades Project, and most importantly, Virtual Birthday Party guests will get an exclusive sneak peek into the Vanguard and Vanguard Cadet’s 2022 programs!
