A PAST EVENT:
A pre-60th Reunion Luncheon on the Berkshires:
Members of Cornell’s Class of 1957 from New England and New York gathered for lunch at the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, Mass. on May 14th. It was a small group but an enthusiastic one—and much younger than our hotel (the Red Lion has been a coaching inn since 1773). In the lobby, the hotel posted a sign to direct us to our private dining room. Cornellians from several later classes, about 15 in all, saw that sign and dropped by to congratulate us.
The luncheon was arranged by New England V.P. Charlie Parker. He was ably assisted in the planning by classmates Sue Pew and Art Boland and by our Alumni Affairs officer Kate Freyer.

Class of 1957 Contribution to Cornell's Sesquicentennial!
Late in April, First Vice President Marj Smart, and President Phil McIndoo, met with the leaders of Cornell’s singing groups to receive from them our copies of the CD of Cornell songs, a project fully funded by our Class of 1957.
Here is Phil's summary of the event:
It was 40°F (at the end of April!). We met outside Sage Chapel, which is one of their favorite performance spaces. Our grant made possible the writing of new arrangements for the singers and Cornell’s symphony orchestra, as well as the recording and mixing of the music.
Just one of the many good times we had over the sesquicentennial weekend.
The Cornell Class of 1957 funded the new arrangements of Cornell songs and their recording, with the Cornell Symphony, at the request of then Glee Club President, Jacob Cohen. ’57 has long been a dedicated supporter of music at Cornell, endowing a fund that annually supports Glee Club activities and, in 1988, sponsoring a new print edition of the Cornell Songbook.
Leaders of Cornell’s Chorus and Glee Club are shown below, gathered in front of Sage Chapel to present their new CD of Cornell songs to the leaders of the Class of 1957.
Shown in the photo are (l-r): Marj Smart, Class of 1957 First Vice President; Philip McIndoo, Class of 1957 President; Jacob Cohen ’16, outgoing President of the Glee Club; Chelsea Brite ’15, Business Manager of the Chorus; Katherine Minnes ’16, Chorus President; Michael Gross ’15 former Glee Club President; and Katie Freyer, Class Programs Officer, Alumni Affairs.
The presentation took place during Charter Day weekend, on Friday, April 24th.
