Our main reunion event will be a dinner on Friday, September 23, 2016, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the
Andover Country Club, 60 Canterbury Street, Andover, MA 01810.

( are organizing nine holes on Friday.  All attendees are encouraged to grab your pals and get together anytime!

2.     What will the reunion dinner be like?

By popular request, we have arranged a buffet dinner in a lovely, large room where it will be easy to mingle and talk; a cash bar, to help keep the ticket price down for everyone; and recorded music that won’t overpower conversation.  Yes, there will be a dance floor too.

Cocktails will begin at 7:00 p.m., followed by dinner at 8:00 p.m.  The menu will include hot and cold hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour, then a buffet dinner of fruit salad, green salad, chicken piccata, London broil, potatoes and rice, medley of vegetables, dinner rolls, assorted mini-pastries, and coffee and tea.

The cash bar will be open throughout the evening.

Friday, September 23:  If you are interested in playing nine holes of golf at Indian Ridge Country Club, please contact Tom Marjerison at or Jay Weiner at
