Rain, Rain Go Away—Oh Who Cares About a Little Rain
Just one year ago my biggest concern as one of our 45th Reunion chairs was rain. How trivial that seems now! Who would care about a rainy reunion or a less than sunny graduation ceremony? And who wouldn’t be thrilled to be getting drenched at a ball game right now? Life has changed and so have our points of view.
Rain storms lead to rainbows, and the “rainout” of this year’s Reunion has led to an innovative Cornell 2020 Virtual Reunion ,with a myriad of crazy and fun activities planned. Even though it’s not our Reunion year, we can still be part of the celebration. And don’t miss these hidden gems you can download.
Or, relive the fun of our 45th Reunion on a rain-less, beautiful Ithaca weekend through these links to the Class Slide Show and the Weekend Photos –all with many thanks to Bill Howard. (Password is notable.)
Last week Kristen Rupert shared a photo of her copy of the Cornell Daily Sun’s issue from our graduation. I reread my copy this weekend and it included a thoughtful piece about our four years by classmate Joel Rudin, “Coming Together, Leaving Apart.” Classmate Bill Howard reviewed our four years of athletic highs and lows as well. I tied to find an archived copy of that issue with no luck but many issues are archived and the search was fun. Check it out here.
Here’s to clearer skies ahead.
Please be well!
