Dear Harvard-Radcliffe 1981 Classmates:

We have just updated the details for our 36th Reunion in Cambridge.

PLEASE REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, as it helps us with our planning immensely. We budgeted this reunion to break even, barely. Nonetheless, generous classmate contributions have made scholarships available!

We recommend you book your hotel rooms soon, before the hotel releases rooms from our block.

Questions? Contact Joe Cortes.

Many Thanks to All Who Helped, Worldwide!!register-button
