Class of '79 Social Work Reunion

Class of '79 Social Work ReunionTARGET: Class of '79 social work alumni!

DATE: TENTATIVE - Oct. 18th - 20th, 2019

LOCATION: To be determined


Several of us attended the 50th anniversary of the School of Social Work last October and got together for a brunch the next morning. There was just over a dozen of us. We had a great time and talked about having a reunion of the full graduating class and some of the former faculty/staff of that time, this October, our 40th anniversary!!

We are suggesting that we get together the weekend of Oct 18th - 20th and are posting this message to gauge the level of interest from everyone.

We did not want anything too elaborate and envisioned a Friday evening social (perhaps at one of our colleagues’ homes) with drinks and nibbles and some music. This would provide an informal opportunity to do some catching up.

We thought that Saturday could be a family affair where we could bring our partners, children/grandchildren to an afternoon social event/activity (e.g. an East Coast Trail hike or swimming party) followed by an evening out at a restaurant for colleagues (and perhaps partners) where we could book a private room for the evening.

This is an initial proposal and we are open to modifications or new suggestions.

For the time being we would like to hear back from our fellow classmates (i.e. '79 Social Work Alumni) indicating if you are interested and will be able to attend. We realize there are some people missing from our e-mail list and we would love to hear from any of you who have an address for someone missing from our list. Perhaps you can also forward this on to the person we have overlooked or have no address for.

Please let us know your level of interest by emailing Cathy Connors at and/or Noel Flynn at
