We’re altering our traditional schedule of activities:
§ Because it is homecoming weekend so there will be a bonfire and marching. For those marching or not we will convene at the Paganucci Lounge at 4:30 pm on Friday October 17th. The Paganucci Lounge is a banquet room in the Class of 1952 Commons or what we remember as the Thayer Dining Hall and we will serve the usual beer/wine and pizza and other sandwiches and snacks. We will have the food and drinks available from 4:30 until about 10:00 PM.
Because the college is in session we are requested to bring no open drinks outside or invite minors to imbibe with us.
The annual Class meeting will be held on campus in Room 301 of the Black Family Visual Arts Center (Black VAC) at 9:30 AM. The Black VAC is the new building next to the Hopkins Center and behind the old art museum. The room has lots of glass and a hollow square table arrangement. This is a fantastic venue for our class meeting. Our thanks are to Charlie Balch for booking this again. At the class meeting we will hear from President Alan Rapoport and Treasurer-for-Life, Charlie Balch, on class finances, the class Rhetoric project, and from Tom Komarek about the Class Birthday Party in San Diego in 2015.
§ Tailgating begins on the AD lawn around 11:00. Beer/wine, pizza, sandwiches and assorted finger food. Nancy Walters will provide her usual fantastic food.
§ Football vs. Holy Cross will attract many of us at 1:30PM. Football tickets can be ordered directly from the Athletic Ticket Office (online or 603-676-2466). Ask for the Class of ’62 section. Dartmouth is coming off a 6-4 campaign, (5-2 in the Ivy League) it’s fourth winning season in 15 years.
§ Saturday evening: Class dinner at Dowd’s, proceeded by cocktails from 6:30- 7:45 PM. Dan Tompkins will arrange our latest junior faculty recipient of the Class of ’62 Fellowship to speak. This has proven to be an enormous hit in past years.
We will have brunch at Dowd’s (8:00-11:00), and farewells.
We are forced to increase our charges because of the deficit last year.
Ø $20/person : Friday night pizza & salad (beer/wine at the bar)
Ø $15/person: Saturday tailgating at AD
Ø $80/person: Saturday Class dinner
Ø $115 total per person
Hard liquor is up to you, but the above fees cover soft drinks, munchies, all meals, tailgatingbeer & wine, taxes/tips, etc. Qe know that we can’t always control external events, but let’s be sensitive to the innkeepers’ biggest fear---- last-minute empty rooms. Tami Dowd is trying to reserve the entire Inn for us, and being leaf season, they could fill the Inn many times over.
Also, Dowd’s requires a firm headcount for Saturday dinner three weeks in advance, so you will be billed for cancellations within that period.
Irwin and I appreciate all assistance and comments to improve the mini reunion and look forward to seeing many of you there.

In July, 2013, ''62s followed the footsteps of the Hapsburgs to the historic cities of the Austro- Hungarian Empire: Prague, Linz, Salzburg, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. Congratulations to Class Tripmeister Tom Komarek for organizing this memorable event. Watch this space for more photos and commentary!!
