06/02/2013 – Summer Brunch in the Gardens of the Vuillerens Castle

This year’s Geneva summer brunch took place in the magnificent setting of Vuillerens Castle near Morges. Alumni and their families got to reconnect, network and enjoy the castle’s gardens of irises, sculptures and parkland. So they could truly enjoy the event with a minimum of distraction, the committee even organised a babysitter for children.
