Class of '71 - 50th Reunion

1971 Reunion class

Dear Classmates,

Great news future Golden Greyhounds!!!   As you know our 50th Reunion will be in-person, having been officially been moved from the first weekend of June to one of the first two weekends in October.

Early indications suggest that we will achieve an attendance record exceeding each Reunion since our graduation.  The following are some of your 1971 classmates who are planning to join us in October on Salisbury Street:  Joe Araby, Dan Micari, Geoff Earls, Dick Wright, Frank Szivos, Ray Valade, Mike Wilbur, Brian O’Brien, Rich Giannino, Serge DeBari, Artie Lindberg, Mike Hoban, Bill O’Dea, Tom Mack, Donald LaBonte, Jake Jones, Brian Kelley, Aldo Sicuso, Alfred LaBonte, Tony Forcelli, Bob Dupuis, Bill Esposito, Fran DePeter, Ron Pike, Wayne Shepperd, Jim Cuccaro and Lou D’Abramo.

We have exciting news about gift-giving in celebration of the 50th Reunion!! Classmate Mike Tsotsis has offered a matching gift challenge of up to $50,000 toward the total amount that is received from our designated contributions to the Class of 1971 Endowed Scholarship. Thank you Mike!

If you have made a commitment to give based on contact with a member of the Gift Committee, then NOW would be an ideal time to GIVE BACK in meeting Mike’s challenge. If you are still planning to make a gift, please do so by May 31, 2021.  More than 30 classmates have already made contributions to our Endowed Scholarship totaling $22,980 so let’s take advantage of Mike’s offer to raise an additional $50,000 for future Greyhounds. 

The 1971 class gift card is enclosed with an envelope to return to Salisbury Street. If you prefer, a time-saving way to donate is to go to this website and follow the simple instructions. In addition to our Endowed Scholarship, several other designations are available such as athletics, academic departments, and the new health sciences building.

Members of our Social Committee have planned activities (Golden Greyhound induction dinner, Assumption trivia, campus tours and events, hotel reservations, etc.)  A full schedule of Reunion activities will be emailed to you once our Reunion weekend is finalized in early summer.  At that time, you will be requested to respond as soon as possible whether you plan to attend.

Let’s not leave any money on the table!!!  Please take advantage of Mike’s generous offer by sending in your gift towards our $50,000 challenge.  Make plans to join your classmates in a Reunion that will be a unique experience that will renew old memories and establish new ones.  Don't miss these special opportunities!

Go Greyhounds!
