Twelve ’85 friends reconvened in a tricked out Mid-Century modern AirBNB house in Palm Springs, CA to celebrate over four decades of friendship and their 60th birthdaysContinue reading
While our virtual reunion in June last year was a fantastic opportunity to reconnect, visit with old friends, and do all the reunion things, it was lacking in, um, real-world presence. Dartmouth is trying to make it up to at least some of us by hosting Regional Reunions in San Francisco and New York this year. The San Francisco event drew ’85s from the Bay Area for some good old-fashioned camaraderie. Josh Alwit, Jill Morgan, Joe Niehaus, Lauren Sonstrom Rosen, and David Rosen all enjoyed the evening.
Beth Hobbs put together this handy cheat sheet for Homecoming events.
Friday – 5-7 Alumni Tent in front of Alumni Gym for Dartoberfest beers. At 7:00, line up with class for Alumni Parade around Green, Dartmouth Night and Bonfire. No Top of the Hop. Alumni Tent beers start up again at 9pm.
Saturday – 11-1 Parent and Family Tent by tennis courts. 1:00 Yale Game. 4:00-6:00 Alumni Reunion Event for classes that held virtual reunions. Classes included close to ours are ’79, ’80, ’81, ’86, ’87s.
Finally, free swag at Blunt 2-5 Friday/9-11 Saturday and for 1769 DCF folk 10-12 Saturday in front of Parkhurst/or at game under goal posts.

Lots of ’85s braved the cold to watch the backs go tearing by, sigh, and cheer alongside Brown tears at Fenway Park.
