New York: Central Park 40th Reunion Potluck Picnic: Tuesday, May 18th, 11:30am to 1:30pm

[For the fully vaccinated]

Your hosts: Denise Reiss, Willa Silverman, and Mark Gluck are co-hosting an HR1981 40th Reunion Potluck Picnic in Central Park, New York City.

Who: Members of the Class of ’81 (and their spousal equivalents) who are fully vaccinated and incubated — at least two weeks since last dose.

When: We will be there from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Please join us for all or as much of it as you can.

What to Bring: Everyone is asked to bring three things:
(1) A pot-luck lunch entrée or side dish to share with others as part of our communal offerings (home cooked or purchased);
(2) A bottle of something to drink – Sparkling water, Flat water, or other beverage;
(3) A blanket to sit on.
Mark will bring paper plates, napkins, cups, and plastic cutlery, as well as garbage bags and an extra “food buffet” blanket to put in the middle for people’s pot-luck offerings.

Where: (Map & directions.) We will gather on the sloping lawn that runs north (downhill) from the Cherry Hill Victorian water fountain to The Lake. There are lovely views of boaters on the The Lake and Strawberry Fields to the east. The location is a few blocks walk from the 72nd Street and Central Park West stop on the A/B/C lines. See maps below. This is considered by many knowledgeable park enthusiasts to be the the most convivial spot in the whole park for picnics.

RSVPs: Please email me, at, to indicate that you plan to come, so we can know about how many to expect. However, last minute additions of other classmates will always be welcome.

Weather related updates, however, will only be sent out that morning to those who RSVP. I will also reply with both Denise’s and my mobile numbers to help you geo-locate us if you are navigationally challenged.

Rain date?: If we are rained out, we will simply reschedule for the following month.

Precisely where: Directions to the North Slope of Cherry Hill, Central Park.
