As we all remember, rain prevented us from holding your commencement ceremony outdoors. During her remarks, Mrs. Chase promised that during your 5th reunion, we would gather outside and form the commencement circle. Let’s take this opportunity to recreate the commencement circle on the great lawn following lunch on Saturday afternoon. We hope to see all of you back on campus!
Hello class of 2010,

There is a 5th Reunion group rate at The Holiday Inn in Lawrence. Please book online or call the hotel at 888-465-4329 and ask for the Phillips Academy group rate to make a reservation.
We have a fantastic reunion committee helping to plan the weekend; Alec Bingaman, Anna Fang, Anne Hunter, Will Lindsey, Katherine Sherrill and Charlie Walters. There are many activities throughout the weekend; however, here are some of the highlights:
FRIDAY NIGHT, June 12
We hope you will join us Friday evening on campus for a cocktail reception in front of the Borden Gym at 5:30 p.m.. The all-class dinner will be held in the Cage. We understand that it might be difficult for some of you to get to campus in time for Friday’s dinner, however, we would love to have as many of you as possible join us. The post dinner reception will be in the tent in front of GW from 8:30 – midnight. Buses will be available to and from the Holiday Inn as of 5 p.m. and will do the last run (back to Holiday Inn) at midnight.
