50th Class Reunion

 
Our 40th class reunion in October 2010.
 
Jun. 27, 2021 - - - Our 50th class reunion is on!
 
Recently, the 50th Class Reunion Committee contacted two doctors for their opinions on whether we should hold our class reunion this October. Scott Moore's friend, Dr. Manuel Gordillo, M.D., an epidemiologist who treats COVID-19 patients, and classmate Dr. Mike Rafferty, M.D., an internist, both feel that with most of our classmates likely having received the vaccine and with Massachusetts having one of the highest vaccination rates in the country, we should feel confident about having our reunion in October.
 
The committee is therefore pleased to announce we'll hold our 50th class reunion on Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 8-10, 2021! Around Aug. 1, 2021, we'll send out registration forms by regular mail.
