Class Events: Message from Our Reunion Chair
It has been a busy year:
Our Class Co-President, George Bustin, reminded us this fall that we are Princeton’s first ever "grandparent” (as opposed to "grandfather”)
class according to the new tradition linking classes at 50–year intervals: The class of 2020 will graduate in the year
we hold our 50th reunion. Thus, some 17 or more of us gathered in September for the Pre-Rade welcoming 2020, the BBQ that
follows and the step sing at Blair Arch.
We made the point about our first-ever position by having our "First
Women to Graduate Princeton” banner displayed along with our Class of 1970 banner,
and three of our women classmates (Mae Wong Miller, Susan Craig Scott and
Priscilla Read) were present in person.
At our Mid-Winter Dinner in February, we had the great pleasure of hearing about the ground-breaking research of Neuroscience Professor Sam Wang, a fascinating and entertaining speaker. We also continued our growing relationship with our "grandchild class," by hosting the class officers that evening. George and Co-President Mickey Pohl have been meeting with the officers and hope to develop other events and programs to enhance the relationship between our classes.
Our Forty-Seventh Reunion, in June, provides a wonderful opportunity to re-connect not only with classmates, but with friends and acquaintances of other classes. This year, the "satellite class" barbecue will span six classes, from the Class of 1968 through the Class of 1973, with host 1972 celebrating their main event in Holder Courtyard. Please join us on Friday evening, June 2, for the event: I can't promise great food, but I can promise good company and plenty of beverages. Also, this year we have reduced the price from $45 to $35 per head.
We will round out this year's Reunion with a kickoff cocktail party and dinner Thursday night at Cap & Gown, courtesy of Mike Camp, and a bird walk Friday morning at the Rogers Wildlife Preserve near the grounds of he Institute for Advanced Study.
Planning for our Fiftieth Reuion has been continuous. If you'd like to help, please contact me. We need (a) a new theme or slogan (!) consistent with our bug-design and themc (b) lots of ideas, (c) a graphic designer, (d) a transportation chair, and (e) other help I'm not thinking of right now. And unless you are personal friends with Bob Dylan, please don't ask me if we can get him at our reunion.
If you haven't paid your class dues, please do. That Alumni Weekly really doesn't come for free. And various class events (as well as this website and postage to keep in touch) require us all to pony up. Official class dues are $50. Or for $200 you
may join the Big Bug Club and get a hug from Big But (or not.) Whichever level you choose, please send the money
as soon as possible. Checks should
be made payable to "Princeton Class of 1970” and sent to Bob Ridolfi, Twin
Hunt Farm, 26 Harbourton-Woodsville Rd., Pennington, NJ 08534. You can also pay your dues directly on this website. Class dues payments are tax deductible, tax
ID 22-2575679. The money stays within our class and is used for the benefit
of our class. In recent years, many of
seem to have put the dues envelope "somewhere safe” for future attention – some of you may have quite a collection of these -- so that
participation has been rather less than we would like. As we ramp up for our big 50th in
2020 we would like to increase both our activities and the size of our
financial reserve so PLEASE PAY YOUR
I sincerely hope to see you at our Class Reunion in June. Till then,
Bruce R. Millman
