Foley House Table at Reunion

Here is a note from a happy participant at the Foley House Table at dinner on Baker Lawn, slightly edited for public consumption...

 

Recognition, welcome but long overdue

A note from Arthur Fergenson:

Valedictory to the Graduating Students by President Philip J. Hanlon ’77, June 09, 2019:

“Not long after [the opening of the Hop in 1962], the Dartmouth theater department served as the earliest pathway for women on this campus, some of whom are seated amongst you today as proudly adopted members of the Class of 1969.”

The adoptees rose and cheered.  I sat next to them and cheered, and could not hold back the tears.  I didn’t want to.

The Parkhurst Problem (comment from Randy Dominic)

Randy Dominic notes that he enjoyed the 50th Reunion but asked that the following be shared with our Class:

I was profoundly disappointed that the one event from our college days deemed worthy of remembering was when some of us decided to exercise their First Amendment rights by denying them to the rest of us.  Did we learn nothing in our four years at Dartmouth?

Reunion comments from Bill Howell

Reunion was a peak experience, even without summiting Moosilauke. The beauty of the Baker River valley; the camaraderie at the lodge and back on campus; the Parkhurst docudrama; conversations at the receptions and meals; commencement itself and walks around campus and down to the boathouse; all combined for a memorable time. Thanks to all the leaders who worked long hours to make the event a success.

Thanks and thoughts about our 50th Reunion

Our 50th Reunion was, without doubt, the most engaging and enjoyable 5 days I have ever spent in and around Hanover. I am so appreciative of the thought and work that went into The Book and all the Reunion events. I'm talking not just about the movers and shakers behind the scenes, but also about all of you who contributed your thoughts, photos, and attendance. I want to share three realizations from my drive home to Maine.

ICYMI: Yo Yo Ma Commencement address at Reunion

For those who didn't attend Reunion, who attended but couldn't stay for Commencement, or for those who would like to see and heaer it again, HERE is Yo Yo Ma first addressing us and then playing his cello.

Review of the Hood remodeling project

This is a link to the Wall Street Journal review, to which I was alerted by Arthur Fergenson. The article is gated, so I will have to defer reading it until later in the week when I visit my local - and excellent - public library.
