Other performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Friday activities include a student art show at Tabor library, golf classic at Reflection Ridge Golf Course, Wichita, and homecoming festival dinner at the Wichita Broadview Hotel.

Saturday highlights include a 9 a.m. music festival and dedication of the centennial quilt, an 11:15 a.m. dedication of the centennial plaza, and a 2 p.m. football game with Friends University. Class reunions are scheduled throughout the day.

A lunch buffet, snack bar, and barbecue supper will be available.

After Sunday worship in any of Hillsboro’s local churches, visitors may enjoy a noon buffet at the Tabor College cafeteria.

“Tabor College has meant so much to so many people through the past 100 years, and I want to personally invite you to return to campus and join with your friends, classmates, and professors as we celebrate a century of God’s faithfulness at Tabor College,” said Jeremy Jordan, director of alumni and related programs.
