Reunion headquarters is Silliman College where all meals (8 of them!) will be served except for the Friday night class dinner in Commons. The Whiffenpoofs of 1959 will be on hand to entertain.  If you have created a piece of art and would like to have it on display during the Reunion, contact Cheever Tyler at: nsgroup1@sbcglobal.net.  Attention '59 golfers: Jim Cowperthwait has tee times at the Yale Golf Course Thursday morning. Make a reservation by emailing Jim at: jbcowp@aol.com.    

   

We need to know how many items of regalia to buy and how many meals to prepare among other things. So please register. If you have questions or need assistance, call the reunion hot line at (203)-432-2110. Sue and I and over three hundred classmates look forward to seeing you in New Haven.
