Norwich celebrated another maroon and gold Homecoming with pomp and ceremony … and rain. Friday was a picture-perfect fall day, featuring sunny skies for the Motorcycle Ride, Sabol Golf Tournament, and NUCC Review and Retreat Parade Honoring the Old Guard. Saturday, however, arrived with showers, bringing out the umbrellas for the Harmon Wall Ceremony, Alumni Parade, and football, soccer, and rugby games.

No one seemed to mind—least of all the members of the Class of 1961, celebrating their 50th reunion and induction into the proud ranks of the Old Guard. While posing for a class photo on the steps of Jackman Hall, the entire group broke out in a spontaneous chorus of”On the Steps of Jackman.”

The Class of 1962 has already begun making plans for its own 50th reunion, September 13-16, 2012. If your class year ends in 2 or 7, don’t be left out of the fun! Contact your class agent soon.

Don’t know the number of your class agent? Call the Alumni Office at 866-485-2019, e-mail alumni@norwich.edu, or visit www.alumni.norwich.edu/classes.

Hope to see you next year!
