But for the Herculean efforts of Frank Gould, turnout at the upcoming October 11-13 fall mini-reunion in Hanover figured to be quite light—coming so soon after our 60th, and with the Lyme Inn, our usual haunt, jacking its rates into the stratosphere. But Frank, reunion organizer extraordinaire, has met the challenge.
Frank presented his 2019 plan on a late winter class officer phone call. On the line were John Trimble in tropical Florida and Dave Bradley in minus-something Hanover. The others were Sam Smith, Mike Simberkoff, Jack Bennett, Gersh Abraham, Walt Vail, Hal Bernsen and yours truly.
This year we’ll shift to the Marriott Courtyard, near the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Frank has negotiated a block of rooms at special rates. The Saturday night banquet there will be served by five-star-rated Maple Street Catering of White River Junction, Vermont. Frank’s also arranged for frequent shuttle service to and from Hanover. We can also view Friday’s Dartmouth Night festivities from the Hanover Inn while munching snacks in a room just off the lobby. Saturday’s class meeting and pre-game tailgate party at Dave’s office are walking distance from the football game against Yale.
