A Message from Class President Bob Briggs
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 .
Events from previous years can be found on the Archives page.
Start planning now to attend the following scheduled events:
It was good to go back to Reunions once again. Attending Reunions were Charlie Barber; Roger Barth; Bob and Chris Briggs.; Evan Bush; Fred Hafetz, Ren Keller and his daughter Sarah ’03; Rich and Vicki McGlynn; Skip and Ginger Meishlan; Andy and Deborah Prindl, Bill Roberts and Mary Gedney; Bob and Ellen Seabring; Ross and Lucia Santy; and Bob and Rowann Villency. We had a delightful lunch in the beautiful library at Prospect House where Charlie Barber sang The Ash Grove, a lovely song about the sorrowful but fond memories of lost friends before we sang Old Nassau and cheered the University and the Class. This year we had enough people stay to enjoy a dinner together Saturday at the Nassau Club.

Evan Bush has announced preliminary plans for Reunions 2022:
Thank you [in advance] for letting me know your Reunion plans. At present there are approximately 15 classmates who will be coming back. Based on that we have made arrangements for lunch Saturday at noon at Prospect House. I will have more information about the lunch and cost later. Prospect House is on campus near the chapel and was formerly the president's home.
We will be the guests of the Class of 1962 and there will be no cost for attending their events. However, their dinners for Friday and Saturday are closed events and we will need to plan dinner events for those who are coming for the full weekend. Accordingly, I need to know if you are planning to be at Princeton on Friday and Saturday.
Contact Evan at email@example.com or (302) 841-3074 with your plans.

“To Be or Not to Be” is the question for many events this year including Princeton Reunions and our annual Reunion Lunch. If our Reunion Lunch does take place,it will be on Saturday, May 25th. Despite the uncertainty of the Lunch, the Reunions crew will need an estimate of those who would attend so that we can have a suitable venue. If you plan to attend, please let Evan Bush know at evanbush38@gmail or (302) 841-3074.
