55th Reunion – June 1 – 4, 2017
Dear Classmates and Friends,
It is time to register for our 55th Reunion! Our weekend together begins on Thursday, June 1, and will continue through Sunday morning to offer opportunities to reconnect, reflect and renew acquaintances and memories of our time at Yale. We hope you and your guest(s) can join us! Jonathan Edwards College will serve as our reunion headquarters, with rooms available for overnight accommodations.
Along with major events organized by the AYA, our weekend will include guest speakers: classmate and urban planner Alex Garvin; Beverly Gage, Professor of History and newly appointed Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy; Ted Marmor, Emeritus Professor of Political Science, on the state of US healthcare; and Jonathan Holloway, Dean of Yale College. Moderated conversation groups will reflect on topics of special interest to us. Other discussion groups will focus on lasting projects initiated by classmates. We’ll enjoy a cocktail reception at the Yale Art Gallery thanks to classmate Steve Susman. The weekend also includes a class memorial service in Battell Chapel, the ’62 Whiffs, museum tours by Rob Irving (please see the reunion schedule before making your choice), an opportunity for all to revisit the Yale Song Book, and dancing on Saturday evening presided over by our own Joe Holmes’ Swing Band. Yale’s excellent dining service will make sure our appetites are well looked after and, with advanced notice, will take care of your special dietary needs.
Thanks to a generous subsidy from our class treasury, we’ve been able to keep registration costs for the weekend to $250 per person. Wives of deceased classmates will be our guests; the class waives your reunion fee and the cost of housing in Jonathan Edwards College. Classmates requiring financial assistance in order to attend should contact Jennifer Julier, our AYA liaison, in complete confidence. Call 203-436-8014 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact one of us if you have questions or concerns. Meanwhile, your reunion chairs very much look forward to sharing this weekend with you.
Your reunion co-chairs,
Peter L. Clark Dan Koenigsberg Peter W. Sipple
