Over sixty classmates returned to Princeton for our 34th Reunion. A few classmates kicked off the weekend on Thursday night under the tent at 73's 35th. Friday and Saturday activities included seeing friends at eating clubs, attending Reunion meetings for campus organizations and sports teams, watching classmate Melvin McCray receive the Alumni Council Award for Service to Princeton, gathering for dinner in small groups Friday night, going to the Triangle Club show, and of course, the P-Rade and Class Dinner on Saturday. Many classmates boogied 'til closing with the East Coast Band at the 35th. Noteworthy highlights included Chris Elliott coming back for the first time in 19 years, Bill Urban capturing the Long Distance Award by jetting in from Marrakesh for the weekend, and Dave Waltz coming back for his first Reunions weekend ever!

Many people think that Project 55 is named for Princetonís Class of 1955, which started the organization after a class mini-reunion in 1989. Actually, the name has a double meaning, as the project was initiated when coincidentally many of the classmates were turning 55. Elliott Lee '74 has recently joined their Board, and
Bill Frist '74 will be helping Project 55's Public Health Fellowship program. Find out more about Project 55 by clicking on their star on the home page of this site.
Did you miss Reunions 2007? Many classmates made it to the P-Rade, and the Class Dinner at Pat and Charlotte O'Connell's.
Class Trip to Gettysburg
The class trip was spectacular! Plans are already underway for another trip in the Spring of 2010. How about Napa?
You may have seen the announcement that our trip leaderProf. McPherson is the recipient of the first Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for lifetime achievement in military writing. The award is to "the most thoughtful and articulate scholar writing about war and military activities." As those of you who have heard him speak know, he is not only an articulate writer, but also an articulate and interesting speaker, and we were very fortunate to have the opportunity to be with him for the weekend.
