“Come together…” (The Beatles)
“Someday we’ll be together…” (Diana Ross and the Supremes)
“Come on people now, smile on your brother (and sister), everybody get together…” (Youngbloods)
A recent unofficial, unscientific poll reveals that most people from the Harvard/Radcliffe Class of 1973 react with denial when asked to respond to the fact that in a few short months it will be 50 years since commencement. “It can’t be.” “No way.” “How did that happen?” “I don’t (look) (act) like those old geezers from the Class of 1923 that I saw.”
Well, Class of 1973 it’s time to come together and embrace our 50 th . We’ve all achieved, grieved, tried, failed, suffered, rejoiced, loved and learned. Some of us are nationally and internationally known leaders and make significant contributions to their fields and people’s experiences. Most of us have less visible lives but also make significant contributions to the people and communities we encounter. We have a great deal to share with each other.
A reunion is the act of coming together again after being apart. Please plan to be a part of the coming together of the Great Class of 1973. The plans are in the works for a wonderful time in Cambridge. ClassACT HR73, along with the HAA and reunion committee, will keep you updated as the planning continues.
