Prior to the Reunion: For those who may have not back in Norwich recently, come see the new lights on the turf football field, the new roof on Slater Museum, and much more, as there have been many changes over the last 4 decades…but much remains the same (except, of course, “The Tree”).
Lunch on Your Own: Perhaps gather with some old friends to support one of the many fine restaurants in the area.
Reunion: Come early (you are welcome anytime after 1PM) and stay late (well, 10pm, which is pretty late for most folks our age)…or just join us for the food, drinks and social hour from 4pm-8pm
