In just about five months, we'll be having our 20th Reunion at Amherst. We know everyone is busy so we'll keep this letter short and concise:
We want YOU to attend Reunion! Mark your calendars for May 25-29th!
Reunion is more fun when more people come! Take a little break from life and come remember what it was like when the biggest problem was whether you could finish studying for an exam in time to go out to 'Tap.' We guarantee fun: Friday night, we'll have Bub's BBQ (with good beer and vegetarian options); on Saturday, we'll have Portabella's delicious food with wine. There will be dancing until the wee hours* of the night. There will be programs, campus tours where we can act like old fogeys ("In my day, we used a VAX; none of this fancy 'webpage nonsense'! ") and some other special surprises.
Really, we want YOU to attend Reunion!
We aim to make this Reunion a big party, with your old friends attending. We all know life can be full of ups and downs...so it's important to get together sometimes and celebrate with your friends. As it happens, many of your friends will be in Amherst, May 25-29th and, really, why not join them for a great Reunion?
If you can, register now to make the party even better!
If you can, please register early. It's easier to plan a good party if we have some idea of how many people are coming. You can now register online, see the most up-to-date schedule of events and pay for both class fees and on-campus housing with a credit card.
If you prefer to pay with a check, please click here to download the registration form or contact Alumni and Parent Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 413-542-2313.
If you know you're coming but aren't ready to register yet, you could also drop either of us (Eleanor Kim or Peter Hamlen) an e-mail just to let us know you're coming.
Do you want to talk?
After 20 years, we're older, wiser, more experienced than when we were in college. But in what? Your program committee wants to know! The Class of '91 is responsible for hosting a few panels/talks/lectures as part of the programming for Reunion. Is there anything you would be willing to talk about? Are there any classmates you'd really like to hear talk? Let us know what you think might be interesting talks and we'll try to make it happen. E-mail Mindy Burrell or Peter Hamlen.
Is there anything else to know?
Our headquarters for Reunion will be Morris Pratt.
The 1991 class fee will be $175 per registering alumnus/a, $91 per adult guest ages 16 and over (including spouse alums) and $10 per child ages 4-15 (3 and under are free).
The class fee covers: dinners (including alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages and entertainment) for Friday and Saturday nights; Sunday morning breakfast (continental style); souvenirs; and snacks and goodies for children. The fee also covers the cost of the tent, class assistants and decorations.
We've tried as hard as possible to keep the cost down so everyone can attend; if limited finances this year would prevent you from coming, please reach out to either Eleanor or Peter.
Peter Hamlen and Eleanor Kim
*Wee hours: defined as that point in the night when the Amherst police finally shut us down for being too loud. It's a Reunion tradition!
