25th Reunion Announcement

Wouldn’t you rather be at Andover?

Yes, of course you would – in June, for our 25th Reunion – June 10-12!

Where the social life will again be fine
Commons dining will [truly this time] be sublime
And the faculty remain strictly wunderbar!

Our spectacular Reunion Planning Committee has been working overtime to plan a rootin’-tootin’ weekend celebrating a quarter century since we stood together in a circle on the Great Lawn … were last serenaded by the Carillon in the Bell tower … were warned by Headmaster McNemar to stay off the grass (on the Quad, of course) … wandered the halls of Sam Phil … and deftly navigated parietals.

The weekend begins Friday afternoon with panel discussions led by our classmates and continues into the night with dinner and drinks at the Log Cabin. We’ll cap off the first day with a Friday Night Flashback party in Pine Knoll, the designated residential area for the Class of 1991.

Saturday starts bright and early with a full schedule of mini-seminars led by current faculty, followed by the time-honored Alumni Parade (rock your blue and white, peeps)!

That afternoon, we’ll host fun activities for the whole family on campus … alternatively, you can sneak away for a run in the sanctuary, or maybe just hang out on the Great Lawn with your fellow ‘91ers!

Saturday evening’s activities are adults only (don’t you wish every Saturday was?). PA has arranged for babysitting services for those planning to bring future alums.  The night is kicked off with a cocktail party at Phelps House hosted by Head of School John Palfrey and his wife Catherine.

The true highlight of the weekend is an incredible catered dinner in a tent under the stars on the East Lawn.  In addition to a lip-smacking, Pop Tart-less menu, we will dig deep into our mix tape collection to share some of our favorite tunes from the 80s and 90s.

The fates did not hex us; our guardian angel sent us to old PA; and now it is time to relive that incredible experience!  So dig out your dog-eared copy of the real Facebook, hike up your low-riding Levis, turn up the Tone Loc and Magic Marker the weekend of June 10-12.

Please feel free to email us with any questions. And make sure to check out the Phillips Academy Class of 1991 Facebook page for regular additions to the “then and now” photo archives.

See you then, nerds! Registration will open in a few weeks!

One thought on “1991

  1. Hello, I was a two term Andover scholarship student in 1991 and live in England. I’d love to come to the June reunion, but just had a couple of questions. I’m leaving my husband at home to look after our small children, but wondered if I’d be able to bring a friend with me? Also, I’m trying to plan a budget for the trip as flights etc are quite expensive. Would you be able to give me a rough idea how much the dinner and activities over the weekend cost? Many thanks, Anthea Morton (nee Davey)
