Virtual Homecoming October 2020


Dartmouth Class of ’69
Virtual Homecoming 2020

Not Your Old School Homecoming!

Because of COVID-19, this October we won’t be making the pilgrimage to Hanover: no Molly’s, bonfire, tailgating, spirits at the Spiritorium, or football. But we’re getting creative and hope that you will enjoy this year’s Homecoming Program, which will be exclusively online, using Zoom. We offer a series of virtual events that we hope will appeal to a variety of interests and attract a good number of our classmates.

 

IMPORTANT:

  • We are starting our activities earlier than usual: Thursday evening
  • Two events will require advance actions.
  • Full participation in one of those events (the wine tasting with a level III sommelier) requires sign-up by September 15 and is limited to 30 participants (first come, first served), and includes a fee to have the wine shipped to you.
  • See below for details.

IMPORTANT:

If you would like to receive wines to participate in this session, you must notify Norman Jacobs and send him a check for $100 (payable to Dartmouth Class of 1969) along with your shipping address.  **YOUR CHECK MUST BE RECEIVED PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 15, 2020.**  This is limited to 30 active participants on a first to sign-up basis. (Note: If you do not want to buy the wines but simply want to watch the Zoom session, that will be fine, and you will not have to sign up or pay for anything.)
