Greetings ’84 classmates!
Wherever this letter finds you, I hope you are enjoying the summer and will take a moment
to send a brief update to our secretary, Sharon Aucoin.
Here’s the annual ’84 update reflecting on the past year and what’s next:
Last year, classmates gathered for "going back” mini-reunion opportunities at the annual
tailgate, Alumni Day, "Academic weekend”, and two conferences – We Flourish: Asian
and Asian American Conference, and L’Chaim to Life: Celebrating 100 years of Jewish
Life. Thanks to the many classmates who organized, led panels, and participated in those
’84ers were also "giving back” with a phenomenal Annual Giving performance of
$624,143 at a 47.4% participation rate. Thanks to all who find their own way of continuing
to be a vital source to sustain the special features that set Princeton apart.
And, on behalf of our ’84 family, classmates answered the call to bring our dues participation
back to 19% although shy $2,700 of breaking even.
As we ask you again to support ’84 class
operations, here is what you can expect in the coming year:
- ’84 website – We will be completely revamping the website. We aim to freshen the
look and even save on costs under the direction of Stephen Ban.
- ’84 Outreach - We want to hear from you and recognize that not all news is good
news. As we move further from our days on campus, Valerie Kelly is looking for ways
to support each other. If you have ideas or wish to help with this outreach program,
please contact her.
Looking ahead, mark your calendars for the fall "homecoming” tailgate on Saturday, October
22nd, Alumni Day on February 25th, and our 33nd Reunions P-Rade on June 3rd. Additional
details to follow.
With warmest regards,
Jackie Hata Alexander
