Thank you to the 240 classmates who returned to College Hill for Reunion 2002. We were pleased to have our housing and class headquarters upgraded to Wriston Quad. The folks at Technology House, a.k.a. Harkness House West, were very hospitable. Our informal events in the lounge, including a welcome reception Friday and a singles get-together Saturday night, were big hits.

How to Get Your Children to Enjoy the Commencement March 101: let them carry the banner.

More than 400 people attended the field day barbecue, and later on Saturday classmates Christina Haverl Tamburro and Chris Swistro joined the Higher Keys for an a cappella performance at our class dinner, where a check for more than $1 million was presented to Brown. Thank you to Misha Joukowsky and the gift committee for your hard work.

Sunday's programs included an hour with President Simmons on Lincoln Field, a university-wide memorial service, our class meeting, and a class seminar. That evening we ventured to the "new" downtown for WaterFire, which was rained out during our tenth reunion. It was spectacular to see how much Providence has changed. The next morning, more than fifty alumni were joined by spouses and kids for the Commencement march. Check out the pictures on our class Web site, 1987. Contact me at with any news for posting.

Special thanks to outgoing class president Lisa Baker, without whom there would have been no reunion.
