Welcome Cornell Class of 1962
Class of 1962 60th Reunion, June 9-12, 2022! Stay tuned in by updating your email with Kate Freyer.
Welcome to the newly expanded and improved Class website, which now contains everything that’s 1962! If you haven’t already done so, take a long, lingering look on your own.
As you should know by now, University alumni communications will be moving into the digital world with the creation of a digital communications platform (the Hub), which should be operational by the summer of 2021. With this major change, publication of the Cornell Alumni Magazine will conclude with the May/June 2021 edition. The highly valued Class Notes will continue via the Hub. But Class Notes are now also available on this website (see CLASSMATE NEWS). As of now, the Hub version of Class Notes will continue to be limited in length. Our website version will not be constrained as to length, and it also may contain photos you submit, as deemed appropriate! The Hub may offer a “CAM” subscription print option in the future, but that is TBD. Here’s a link to the formal CAM announcement and informative FAQ. Some of the material may be dated, but it is still informative.
Our Class Dues structure has been revised to reflect the CAM cancellation; annual dues are now $30. Paying Class Dues will still be essential for maintaining the Class infrastructure, so please follow through and pay your dues whenever you can. Our dues support specific Class initiatives and are separate from gifts to the University. Class Dues are tax deductible. Class Dues support our ongoing communications efforts, including the website, USPS mailings and all reunion hard-copy messages. Dues also provide a subsidy to defray some of the fixed costs of reunion. And, Class Dues support the costs of official Class meetings.
We will continue to use the dues process as a mechanism for Class Gift Fund contributions. The Class Gift Fund continues as an important part of our Class Legacy. Also, in the past year, we had a special CGF solicitation to honor the longest serving class officer, Jan Crites, upon her passing. We will be adding a fine art photograph to our museum collection in her honor. The presentation will be made at Reunion 2022.
Please contact me with any questions, suggestions or concerns.
Good Health and Happiness to you and your family as we work our way through 2021.
Neil Schilke, President
