HGS '65 *** 50th Reunion: Saturday!

The 50th Reunion of the HGS class of 1965 concluded on Saturday, June 13, 2015. It started with an award ceremony for the Alumnus of the Year for 2015 in the Thompson Common Room, a sumptuous luxury we did not have in our day. Click here to learn more about his award. There was also by a brief talk by one of the teachers.

We then moved walked across the campus in gorgeous weather to the huge tent set up for the Reunion Dinner and Entertainment. Our class banner was hung from the ceiling. There was wine to start, a chance to reconnect, and then dinner with entertainment by Hopkins students of another generation.

But the only thing that really mattered was the company of our classmates.
Below are a few photos taken not for art but for the memory of what some of us had become by 2015. There are photos of the venue, of our wives, the food, and of the campus. May they be bring pleasing memories!
