Invitation to our 50th

November 2017

Dear ’69 Classmates,

Has your life been lived your way? Triumphs and tragedies? Fortunes and reversals of fortunes? Love found and love lost? What part did serendipity play? Roads taken and not taken? Who or what changed your lives forever? Let’s share our stories.

We can, you know. In 2019, there will occur two momentous and very personal events.

Homecoming 2017 report

Homecoming was a tremendous success. We had a total of 32 attendees, including 23 classmates. Thanks to Rick and Paul for making arrangments.

On Friday afternoon a small group (Dudley Kay, David Prentice, Jim Staros, Henry Allen, Paul Tuhus) met to work on The Book for our 50th reunion.

Mini-Reunion summer 2016 in Camden, Maine

Roy Hitchings sends a photo of a gathering of '69s in his home town of Camden, Maine, with this comment:

The photo was last summer and the 69ers are from left to right: Peter Imber, Clark Doran, Roy Hitchings, George Cook and Allen Petersen. Allen was visiting but the other 4 have homes here in this beautiful part of the world. Roy

 


 

A new gallery of miscellaneous photos

We periodically receive photos from classmates from various activities, sometimes related to class events but often not. They usually do not come with much explanation. We have struggled with what to do with these, and have decided to create a gallery of miscellaneous photos from classmates. Here.

(This also allows me to play with the royal 'we' in my writing...)



 

Portland (Portlandia-themed) Mini Reunion August 2017

Thanks to our own Allen Denison, there was a hugely successful gathering of '69s and friends in the Porland, Oregon region this summer.

The passing of Professor Vincent Starzinger

Vincent Evans Starzinger, a Dartmouth College government professor who shaped the careers of over a generation of graduates by inviting them to think critically, died on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at Wheelock Terrace, Hanover, NH. He was age 88.

Nicknamed “The Zinger” by students and colleagues, Starzinger retired in 1994, after 34 years at Dartmouth, but his influence extended far beyond that time.

Annual Citi Field Mets Game Mini Reunion

As always, Sandy Alderson really knows how to throw a party.  After a brief rain delay, the game got underway although the party had already started in the two luxury suites Sandy provided.

Food and beverage in abundance as well as conversation and laughter.  The Mets lost but it was close.

Over 30 classmates (many with plus ones) were in attendance and one had to move between the two suites to see everyone.  Mets bobble-heads and garden gnomes were available as party favors.

Everyone looked healthy, wealthy and wise (2 out of 3 was good enough for some).
