Movie night, Saturday April 24th

On April 24 at 8 pm Eastern (US), film fans will once again gather for Saturday Night at the Movies employing the services of Amazon Prime’s Watch Party function.  Our last Saturday Night at the Movies joined nine of us together for the exemplary Caged starring Academy Award nominee Eleanor Parker and a cast of superb women actors including Hope Emerson as the cruel matron of a women’s prison. After we watched the movie, using the chat function to comment in real time, we convened via Zoom for a richer, “in person” discussion that lasted for almost an hour.

DOC House project update

Last Friday we were able to stage proposed furnishings at the DOC House in the main lounge and new dining room thanks to efforts by Pompanoosuc Mi

Class (virtual) wine tastings

Our most recent wine testing (March 25th) was a great time!
Our own John & Mary Myers’ daughter, Katie, is the sales director at Clif Family Winery. These are the same folks who make the Clif Bars that you most likely know and love. Well, their wines and the snack food pairings are excellent. Their tour guide for our Zoom wine tasting was charming and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. If you missed it – sorry about that.

But – you have another chance:

Paul Tuhus updates us again:

"Progress is noticeably evident with the installation of new windows. Following today’s construction meeting, Andy McLane, our architect, the College’s project manager, and I traveled to Pompanoosuc Mills to work on furniture selection."


Casual Conversations

Early in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, Arthur Fergenson (our mini-Reunion Chair) initiated a series of Casual Conversations among classmates. These 2-hour conversations occur roughly monthly using Zoom and are on Sunday afternoons at 3:00 pm ET unless otherwise specified. About 3 weeks before each event, an announcement is posted here on the web site and sent to all classmates for whom we have valid email addresses.

Saturday Night at the Movies

On Saturday, February 27, your classmates held the second Saturday Night at the Movies using the Watch Party function of Amazon Prime.  Ten of us, plus partners, attended.  The film was The Set-Up (1949), starring Dartmouth heavyweight boxing champion Robert Ryan, Class of 1932.  Attendees had such a good time that we are doing a third Saturday Night at the Movies on March 20 at 8 pm Eastern.
