FRIDAY EVENING:We joined students of the Class of 2015 at the “Etiquette Dinner” at the Hanover Inn. We sponsor the event as part of the CLASS CONNECTIONS PROGRAM. This event has been in place several years and has been regarded as one of the most fun events for undergraduate and alumni participants alike.


SATURDAY: Class Meeting took place at Dartmouth Hall, after which we adjourned for an Insider’s Tour of the Hood Museum of Art. We had the storage area completely to ourselves for a special display of some of the 99% of the Hood’s collection which featured some of classmate’s work.

Secretary Tom Long entertained us with his historical insight

SATURDAY EVENING: 70th Birthday Dinner Party was held in the Paganucci Lounge located in the Class of 1953 Commons. SUNDAY: Breakfast was for exploring on our own and breakfast with friends.
