DARTMOUTH CLASS OF 1965
2017 HOMECOMING MINI-REUNION AT
MOOSILAUKE and HANOVER
October 5-8, 2017
Join other ’65s for a fun fall weekend at Mt. Moosilauke and in Hanover! The 2017 mini’ will be held on Homecoming weekend, October 5 – 8.
We will start on Thursday, October 5, with a ceremony, cocktails and dinner at the NEW Moosilauke Ravine Lodge to dedicate the Class of 1965 Meeting Room at the Lodge. If you wish, you can spend the night at the Class of 1965 Cabin. On Friday morning Dave Beattie will lead a hike to the summit of Mt. Moosilauke. He will also provide directions for shorter hikes near the Lodge [not up the mountain].
Classmates are encouraged to spend Friday and Saturday nights at Pierce’s Inn in Etna, about 6 miles from the Dartmouth campus. Pierce’s features a massive stone fireplace and is a great place to relax and chat with classmates. Pierce’s offers several rooms and great breakfasts – for reservations: e-mail: email@example.com or call (603) 643 2997
On Friday evening we will have a wine and hearty hors d’oeuvres reception at Jim and Debbie Griffiths’ home in Plainfield, NH – about 12 miles [25 minutes] from Hanover. Jim has even promised us our own private bonfire! We will send directions to registrants.
On Saturday there will be a pre-game cookout on the Sphinx grounds and in the evening, we will have a cocktail party and dinner at Pierce’s where we expect to have a performance by one of the Dartmouth singing groups. Both Saturday events will be joint with the Class of 1964.

TO MAKE A GIFT TOWARD THE MAINTENANCE ENDOWMENT FUND FOR THE LODGE
We would like to provide a $50,000 maintenance endowment fund for the Lodge. Our goal is to replicate the 142 donors we had for the ’65 Bunkhouse. With numbers there is power, so even a modest gift will help us achieve our goal. Thanks to the generosity of David Wagner ’65, T’66 we have a $5,000 gift to kick-off the campaign.
You can make a gift on-line by going to: http://giving.dartmouth.edu/moosilauke/index.html Be sure to note “Class of 1965 Moosilauke Ravine Lodge Operations and Maintenance Endowment” in the “Other Instructions” tab.
You can also send a check made to:

Dartmouth Alumni Magazine July/August 2017
Feature Article “The Idiocy of War”
The article features Vietnam war photos by Dick Durrance ’65 who was an Army combat photographer. It also mentions our three Classmates who made the ultimate sacrifice for their Country in Vietnam: Dennis Berger ’65, Stephen McVean ’65, and John Seel ’65.
The 50th Reunion was a brilliant success — Look at these great photographs:
Out-going Class 1965 President, Roger Hansen, summarized the proceedings:
“The 50th Reunion of the Great Class of 1965 was a rousing success. Getting us off to a terrific start on Thursday was the Jim Hamilton Memorial Hike up Mt. Moosilauke with about 30 classmates and guests making the climb. Dedication of our Class of 1965 Bunkhouse and a celebratory reception and dinner followed. We are all delighted with the finished product.
Back to campus Friday, there was a succession of wonderful seminars, meals, and social time. At lunch on Saturday we presented President Hanlon with our Dartmouth College Fund check, the Ceremonial Key to the Bunkhouse and title to the PASSION FOR SKIING book and PASSION FOR SNOW film.
Our Class led the procession of guests, faculty and graduates into Commencement on Sunday. The last formal event of the reunion was a marvelous magic show by our own Rich Block ’65 after dinner on Monday.”
