Re: our 60th Reunion,
May 20 - 23, 2021
We have been advised
by the University that this year's reunion will be virtual. Here's what the
Alumni Council has said:
"In view of ongoing concerns
related to the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision that Reunions will
not take place on campus and will be held as a virtual event this May. We will
miss this opportunity to gather in person as Princetonians but have determined
that convening on campus for even a modified celebration with guests from around
the world is not prudent or possible this spring."
In anticipation of this decision,
our reunion committee has been working on a virtual reunion program. You are
invited to attend via your own device, over the internet, free of charge. We
will also be offering some clothing and other items on an a la carte basis.
Here are some of the activities we
are planning, to be grouped into sessions. Some of
the sessions which are recorded will still be available for viewing online after
the virtual reunion has ended.
welcome by Class Officers
o Class news from George Brakeley
o A tour of the campus by Jon Hlafter
o Tales of our "escapades"
o A photo history of our class by Ken Lomas
o Your choice of events to be offered by the University (forums, lectures, etc.)
o Videos of prior P-rades
o The Princeton Band
o A Class of '61 memorial service led by Jim Adams
o A virtual class meeting chaired by Peter Pettibone
o A group singing of "Old Nassau" led by Patrick Davidson
Needless to say, we're making
history. This will be our first Major Reunion to be attempted on line.
We want it to be entertaining,
creative, and informative, and we welcome your thoughts regarding the program.
Further, we're hoping that all classmates will attend at least some, if not all,
of the program from the comfort of our own homes!
We would appreciate knowing your
thoughts on attending this virtual reunion, and any suggestions you may have for
content. Please address them to any class officer, or to Joe McGinity,
attendance chair email@example.com.
We will be in touch with you as our
reunion committee continues to develop the program.
We hope you will join us on line in
Please stay safe and
