Class Notes, 2016 March/April

March/April 2016

Greetings from the Hill. REUNION, REUNION, REUNION! Can you tell we're a little excited? Led by our Reunion chair, Jeff Weintraub, MD '95, preparations have been under way for months to make our 25th Reunion (Yes, 25! I can't believe it either) the best one yet. This Reunion is sure to be another record-breaker, with so many activities, lectures, concerts, and events for every member of the family. The Fun in the Sun Carnival on the Arts Quad will be back, plus wine tasting, live music at the tent parties, campus tours, the Hot Truck, and so much more.

Although some classmates will choose to attend Reunion Weekend without their children, we know that others will want to share this special weekend with their entire family. Reunion offers a great opportunity for alumni to introduce their children to campus and the surrounding area, and all Class of '91 events are casual and child-friendly. Children are sure to enjoy the concerts, tours, meals, outdoor education activities (e.g., zip-line across Beebe gorge, climbing wall, and more), and a multitude of other campus activities and events. Family-specific events are also being developed for our class.

Planning is also under way for a Reunion Row on Cayuga Lake that will test the fitness of our classmates who were members of the Cornell rowing team including, among others, Todd Kennett (Spirit of '57 director of rowing and head coach of the Cornell men's heavyweight rowing team), Greg Darrah, Jason Dies, Eric Holbrook, Tom Murray, Gene Ruoff, ME '92, and Dave Schieleit. Bragging rights and Pabst Blue Ribbon beers are on the line!

If you haven't already "Liked" our Cornell Class of '91 Facebook page (, now is the time. As soon as the Reunion registration Web page goes live, expected in March, we will post it to the Facebook page so you'll be sure to know. And check out our class website (, loaded with many other details about what is sure to be a phenomenal "don't miss" weekend!

On another topic, we are pleased to hear from our classmates with sons and daughters who followed in their parents' footsteps and enjoyed the Cornell experience last summer. Among the many talented high school students who attended the 2015 Cornell University Summer College program were Kong Lam's son Edward and Thomas Lee's son Ryan. Summer College is offered to high school students who have completed their sophomore, junior, or senior year and have the academic ability, maturity, and intellectual curiosity necessary to undertake college-level work.
