Hello Class of ’97!

Twenty years ago, events of great magnitude took place. For example, the comet Hale Bop circled our solar system. Dolly the Sheep made her debut. Tiger Woods won his first Masters. Madeleine Albright became the first female Secretary of State. Mike Tyson decided to taste Holyfield’s ear. The first Harry Potter book was published. And Leo & Kate’s love took the world by storm.

Naturally, you know where I’m going with this. It’s been twenty years – 20!!! – since we last gathered in a circle, passed our diplomas, said some tearful farewells, and for many, ate your last Commons/Andover catered meal. But now, now is the time to heed the call & return back to Andover.

Your Reunion Planning Committee is planning a wonderful weekend, including a Friday night dinner in the Cage for all reunion classes (this event is family-friendly, so please bring your children); events throughout the day on Saturday; our class dinner Saturday evening; and a farewell breakfast on Sunday.

Please SAVE THE DATE for JUNE 9 – 11, 2017. Registration starts in March and will be available at https://andoverabbotreunion.wordpress.com/.  The full weekend schedule, as well as accommodation information for dorms and local hotels, will also be available on the website.

We’ll post reminders on the Class of ‘97 Facebook page and send out a few reminder emails. Be sure to call, text, e-mail, Insta, Tweet, & Snap all our Andover classmates—the more who join, the better our reunion will be!

We look forward to seeing everyone in June!
