Thursday, May 29, 2014

Based on the results of the survey that the Reunion Committee conducted, not enough of 1964 classmates were interested in participating in the Boat Cruise proposed for Thursday evening and, as a result, the committee decided not to move forward with it.

For those of you who are still planning to come to Hoboken on Thursday, May 29, Melissa Fuest is happy to coordinate a small gathering on campus or at an area restaurant for members of the Class 1964. Please contact her at mfuest@stevens.edu, if you would like to participate.
