Class Correspondence

Dear Classmates,

A graying, arthritic 60-year old man is a robust, goofy teenage boy when viewed through the eyes of a college classmate. Reunions are an opportunity to visit with those young friends and their families, and our 40th will be held in late spring next year.

I have an aging Colgate-graduate friend who is concurrently planning his 65th. His efforts tell me that if you are ever considering attending a reunion, now is the time. They don't get any easier! I hope you will join me, your Class President Paul Mele and the others of your ReUnion Committee by:

- Getting involved - We need to contact as many of our classmates as soon as possible to encourage their attendance!?Please send us your current email address to! If you would like to help out, please email me at the address below.

- Contact your friends and make a commitment to meet on campus for ReUnion Weekend. If you need their contact information, please get in touch with us. As you may know the college has an excellent contact system, (of course you are already in it if you can read this letter) or contact Rhonda Engvold for the information.

- Visiting to tell us your plans and get more information about the weekend.

- Making your ReUnion lodging reservations today. Early reservations are encouraged.

We look forward to hearing from you,
John Hammerstrom and Paul Mele
