2018 Princeton Reunions - May 31 - June 3, 2018

A reminder that our 62nd Reunion will be held on May 31 - June 3, 2018. We will be guests of the Class of 1958, and we have been advised that their Headquarters location will be just south of Holder on the upper campus near Alexander Hall.

Following up on Frank Klapperich's April 23rd e-blast from Dottie Werner on the plans for our 62nd Reunion, the Class of 1956 Reception and Dinner will be held in the '56 Lounge on Friday, June 1 starting at 4:30 PM. Dinner will be served about 6 PM. To cover our costs, the requested contribution is $60 per person in cash or by check payable "Princeton Class of 1956" at the door.

The number of attendees is important for planning and budget purposes. If you have not already done so, please let us know as soon as possible, or no later than Thursday May 24, whether you will or will not be able to join us for the occasion. Either email me at, or call me at 914-337-7122.

Sadly, we have lost a number of classmates in the past year, and we will take the opportunity to pay tribute to them, especially our former Class President, Fraser Lewis, who died on April 26. We expect Maxine and several other Lewis family members to be with us as our special guests that evening. As you know from a separate email from Class Affairs, a Memorial Service will be held at the Nassau Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 3 at 2:00 PM, followed by a Reception at the Springdale Golf Club.

Looking forward to seeing you at Reunions,

UPDATE on the Mini Reunion in St. Louis plus cruise - September 5 - 15, 2018

The 3-night/2-day St. Louis city segment begins at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 5 with a Welcome Reception and Dinner.

We still have plenty of openings for the Sept 5-7 mini-reunion…a great chance to renew and create new friendships with our classmates plus:

- a trip up the Gateway Arch (630 feet….the country’s highest monument) with views not to be missed of the river and the city

- a cathedral which includes one of the largest collections of mosaics in the world made up of 41.5 million pieces of glass tessare employing over 7,000 colors (it took from 1912 to 1988 to complete)

- one of the oldest (and best) public gardens

- the Danforth Plant Science Center which has become the foundation of making St. Louis the plant development center of the world (check out the robots)

- a tour of the Anheuser-Busch brewery and a visit with the Clydesdale horses

- and some very good dinners at Kemolls and Tony’s

Where else can you find this combination plus a chance to visit with classmates and their wives? It could be one of the best $1000 you have ever spent!
