Happy New Year, Vegas, Book Club & Video

Happy New Year! I hope 2020 has started well for you.

As Cornell students are headed back to campus this weekend for the spring semester, I remember heading back to the Hill in the dead of winter. Ithaca winters can be quite severe but they can also be beautiful.













2019 was a busy and fun year for our class. We celebrated our 45th Reunion in June where we broke attendance and fundraising records. Thank you for engaging with our class and Cornell! This year let’s make our New Year’s resolution to keep and build on those Cornell connections.

We already have several class opportunities planned for 2020. A handful of classmates will be in Las Vegas for the annual Cornell Alumni Leadership Conference Feb. 20-23. If you are interested in joining us for meetings or social events in Vegas, please let me know and I will send details.

We’re working with Cornell’s English Department to roll out a class book group and reading project this spring. All Class of 1974 dues payers can receive the book and participate in a Cornell faculty-led on-line discussion. Be sure to pay your class dues now and stay connected to our class and Cornell. Not sure if you’ve paid? Email me at scdeford@gmail.com. Pay online here. When you pay your dues, you’ll receive the award-winning Cornell Alumni Magazine. Check it out here.

As we look ahead at 2020 and beyond, take a minute to look back at 2019 at Cornell. (Click here to watch.)

Hope to see you in 2020!

Best wishes,
