Reunion 2014 : Class of 1969

Letter to the Class of 1969:

March 2014


Have you made your plans to return to Alfred this June 6-8? It will be great to be back on campus but the best part is always reconnecting and reminiscing with friends who shared our life-changing experience in the quaint little Village of Alfred, NY. For most, our time at Alfred was truly a springboard to the future. Let’s celebrate the past and share where we are today.

Here are a few updates:

  • You know that “one traffic light” all Alfredians refer to so fondly?  Well, it’s reached another milestone: 40 years of stop ‘n’ go on Alfred’s Main Street. Join with the Alfred community as it celebrates its Traffic Light Festival Friday, June 6, from 7 to 10 p.m. There will be a parade, music, and lots of opportunities to buy such specialty items as homemade “Traffic Jam.” Hey, it’s Alfred, in all its quirkiness!
  • Also, on Friday night, enjoy an entertaining performance by hypnotist Thomas Bresadola as he brings laughter to the crowd and highlights some of Alfred’s special history.
  • Sure, New York State is known for its wine, but what about its beer!? Come sample New York’s finest brews at a beer tasting on Saturday afternoon and leave with your own AU mug.
  • On your way to the Desserts through the Decades event in the newly renovated Ade Hall on Saturday night, stop by Powell Campus Center to take some pictures with friends in the photo booth or view the Alfred timeline.
  • Saturday Night Entertainment: Get your dancing shoes on, because we’re having a party! Come join your classmates in the Knight Club for drinks and dancing.
  • Memories of Alfred II, a compilation of amateur movies from the 1930s through the late 1950s will be showcased with a special introduction given by University archivist, Laurie McFadden.

The registration deadline is May 9 so please register now.
