Cornell Health dedication set for October 21
On Saturday, October 21, 2017 the new Cornell Health facility will be dedicated. At our 60th reunion the Class of 1955 donated $100,000 to name a room in this facility. As you can see the Class of 1955 gift plaque is located next to the office of the Assistant Director of Counseling and Psychological Services and is in a high traffic area. No other alumni class has made a naming donation. Cornell Students and staff will remember our great class in perpetuity.
Cornell Health is staffed by 220 full time employees including; 30 mental health professionals, 2 post-docs, 16 medical clinicians (physicians/mid-level clinicians), a large staff of nursing professionals (RNs, LPNs, medical assistants), 6 pharmacy staff as well as lab, x-ray, physical therapy, care managers, health records, health educators, occupational medicine, and administrative services staff.
Sharon Dittman, our contact at Cornell Health, said they would be happy to welcome class of ’55 alumni for a tour any time they happen to be on campus. Sharon’s email is SD15@cornell.edu

Cornell Tech Campus to be dedicated September 13
The university celebrates an historic milestone on September 13, 2017 with the official dedication of the new Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City.
Cornell Tech brings together faculty, business leaders, tech entrepreneurs and students in a catalytic environment to produce visionary results grounded in significant needs that will reinvent the way we live in the digital age.
In case classmates local to the area want to visit the campus, its general location is shown at the right. There are quite a few websites you can also view - just put in Cornell Tech NYC and pick from an extensive list.
Have you paid your Class Dues???
As of August 11, 2017 131 classmates have not paid their dues for 2017. This represents 34% of those who paid in 2016. A very disturbing trend since our class had the most dues payers for the decade classes of the ‘50’s.
Our dues are very important to our class, they fund class activities, mailings, meetings and, of course, help pay expenses for our reunions – and our next one is in 2020 - only a few years away! These are not contributions to the university but to the class of 1955.
38 classmates previously had automatic renewals (AR). You may have had an AR in the past but may need to check with Lauren Coffey, our AA&D engagement officer, to see if you do have one or for any other questions about dues. She can be reached at (607) 255-6582 or email@example.com. Or, you can send a check to Cornell University, PO Box 25841, Lehigh Valley, PA 18003-9695
Better yet, arrange to pay online. To do this, to do this either click HERE or scroll all the way to the bottom of this page and click on “PayClass Dues”. This will take you to another page where you can enter the necessary information as well as opt for automatic renewal.
We’re depending on you and thanks for your support of the great class of 1955 !!!
