It’s been a busy fall for classes of the ’70s events. At Cornell Homecoming 2017, the annual Class of 1974 tailgate was expanded to include other Classes of the ’70s (plus ’69) and drew well over 100 participants, including 20 plus from ’74. Classmate Roberta Bandel Walcer spearheaded a group of volunteers who set up tent canopies and arranged food. The weekend was fabulously warm and sunny for so late in the season, and Friday night fireworks and music thrilled a full Schoellkopf Field crowd.
In late October, about a dozen classmates met in Boston for the final 65th birthday celebration for our class. Classmate Nancy Maczulak Fisher organized cake and balloons at the late afternoon reception.
On Thanksgiving weekend, the ’70s classes organized the annual Cornell men’s ice hockey pre-game party near Madison Square Garden in NYC. Classmates attending the game saw a thrilling win by Cornell, 4-3, over a Boston University team that surged in the final five minutes.
Looking ahead, the classes of the ’70s will host a reception in Philadelphia the weekend of February 2-3 during Cornell’s annual Alumni Leadership Conference. We’ll share details once they are available.
Enjoy the holiday season!
