A Message from Class President Mike Southwell

[President Mike Southwell] Welcome to the Class website. It is intended to supplement the Princeton Alumni Weekly, to help disseminate timely information about the varied activities of the Class, and to facilitate more effective communication and interaction. Its content is constantly changing so please access it frequently and help us by supplying photos and items of interest that concern our Class. Its value is enhanced by your ideas and participation. The Princeton Alumni Weekly is the only vehicle that goes to all members of the Class, not just those with internet connections, so please continue to supply our Class Secretary, Dick Grieves, with news by clicking  here .

Our 55th Reunion was a huge success! See a report and pictures  here .

Rich McGlynn reports on Annual Giving as follows:

We did it! Final results show that we've exceeded 70% participation and raised close to $910K from our Class to support Princeton. Still more stragglers will come in, but the current numbers are a truly superb accomplishment. We're over 70% for the first time in four years, and let's hope we can maintain this pace as we move on toward our 60th. We are among those few Princeton Classes who have reached this mark.

Special thanks to Rich and Dave Dodge and the Regional Chairs for their outstanding work.
