A riverboat cruise in May 2019 up the Rhine River, from Basel, Switzerland, to Amsterdam, unexpectedly brought together seven IUP alumni. Gary Bernardo ’73, M’79 and Nancy Egger Bernardo ’74 were traveling with Andrea Dersch Stoyko ’74 and her husband. Aboard the small vessel, they encountered Bob Garrity ’72 and Marianne McHugh Garrity ’73, as well as Pat Sloand Epple ’77 and Laura Creveling ’82.
