We are now officially in our 50th Reunion year—it is hard (impossible) to believe that 50 years have passed since we graduated.
Planning for our “golden jubilee” began just over a week ago when a small group of ’74 classmates joined us in Ithaca to scout the 2023 Cornell Reunion. The weather was, well, Ithaca-like—some rain, and also plenty of sun. (Smoke from the Canada fires fortunately cleared out by Friday morning.)
Over six thousand people were on campus, a very strong showing for the first major post-pandemic reunion for Cornell alumni. The weekend was action-packed, with lectures, garden tours, canoeing on Beebe Lake, concerts, the Reunion Run, and more.
Please mark June 6-9, 2024 on your calendar for our 50th in Ithaca. Our theme is “Dancing in Moonlight: The Notable Class at 50” and, in keeping with the song, we are going to make it a joyous celebration. (To get in the mood, click here.)
In addition to circling the date, please consider doing the following:
- If you are willing to reach out to classmates you know, to get them excited about Reunion, send an email to Mi OConnell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Diane (Kope) VerSchure (email@example.com).
- Make sure “your” song is included in the 50th Reunion playlist—send your favorite to John Foote at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope your summer is off to a good start!
Yours in the moonlight,
