Class Dinner 2020

Our 2020 Annual Class Dinner, via Zoom

Most of the 140+ pre-registered classmates and widows showed up for our October 30 Class Zoom Call and were treated to an engaging 90-minute “virtual annual dinner.” James (Jimmy) Hatch, a 53-year-old ex-Seal and now a Yale sophomore in TD College, inspired us with his life story, followed by a gripping Q&A session covering his military and Yale experiences, his views on his own life, and his opinions on important current issues in American society. The results of our traditional Election Year Class Survey were presented, and Jennifer Julier, our YAA rep, updated us on prospects for a rescheduled 55th Reunion in 2021. A few technical zoom glitches were met with understanding and good humor. Many attendees hung around for camaraderie and banter after the formal meeting ended.
