10:00am - 10:00 pm Registration

12:00pm - 1:30pm Lunch.  For the rest of us who have finally gotten up there will be a wide variety of salads, specialty sandwiches on botique breads, fresh cut fruit and delicious sweets. All meals will have kosher, vegetarian, and vegan options. Please make sure to specify any dietary requirements on your registration forms.

 2:00pm - 5:00pm Campus Events: There are a large number of seminars and other activities occurring throughout the campus on Friday. These will all be listed on the website. Please refer to the site over the next few months as there will be continued updates for events. Many of us have not been back on campus for years and a lot has changed. We encourage you to put on your running shoes during this time to see as much of campus as possible. 

5:30pm - 7:00pm Cocktail Party: Yes it's time to get your party on again. Cocktails, beer, wine etc. Let's make it clear etc does not mean pharmaceuticals! There will also be fruits, cheeses, veggies and assorted pick foods. Light live music, a DJ and some of Princeton's best a cappella groups will be provided for your entertainment.

7:00pm - 8:30pm Dinner:   There will still be classmates wandering in to registration between Cocktails and dinner so the mood is going to be very relaxed. There will be various grazing stations with salads, pastas, grill, and deserts to casually wander up to and take in the necessary fuel for the three non stop hours dancing that lie just ahead. This is really one of the best times to relax and get together with the many friends and classmates we have not seen for years. 

9:00pm - 12:30am Party Like a Rock Star: Seriously when is the last time you partied two nights in a row until 12:30am. For that matter when is the last time you partied. Well thats why your at Reunions. We have a great band named Top Shelf and they are going to crush it. Remember to fill in your favorite songs and albums when you register so that we can include them in the song list. We will have a '78 only VIP backstage area set up with couches, lava lamps, and espresso for you to break away from the riot on the dance floor, and be able to share one on one catch up time with your classmates. 

Saturday June 2, 2018

8:00am - 9:30am Breakfast: If you are there by 8:00 I have no respect for you unless you haven't gone to bed yet. Once again we will be indulging in a continental breakfast. We might add Gatorade to replenish the lost electrolytes from the night before.

11:30am - 12:00pm Class Photo: On the steps of Whig. Please come to the photo. The photo is for the whole class whether you are purchasing the photo or not. Now we know that at this point many of you will be tired and hung over but let's do our best here. Splash some water on your face, slap your cheeks to get some color back, and let's look sharp. I've purchase these photos and they are perfect for your home, study or office. If you do not attend there is no desert at lunch for you.

12:00pm - 1:45pm Lunch: Saturday lunch is a carnival like event. Of course there will be great food but that is just the beginning. There will be music, both live and provide by the DJ. There will be a cappella groups. The Princeton University band will stop by and the cheerleaders. We will be passing out all the signs and paraphernalia for the P-rade. We will conduct a practice run for the review stand routine. Hell I might as well through some clowns and balloons in there too. The mood is more of a party than a lunch so let's get ready to P-rrrrrrade!!!

2:00pm - 5:30pm P-rade: Ee will have signs, lots of stuff to through out to the crowds, real mega phones, a band, a DJ, the tiger statues, a float, there will be streaking ( no scratch that ). The point is we have a Rock theme and we want to Rock this P-rare like it's 1978. At the reviewing stand we will have a choreographed flash dance for the judges. It's either going to be amazing or a complete debacle but we are going to have a blast. And, really, at the end of the day that's what the P-rade is about.

5:30pm - 7:30pm Cocktail Party: Are you tired yet? Well it's time for a pep talk. You've made it to the fourth quarter and remember a winner never quits and a quitter never wins. So let's raise our glasses high and let's have another cocktail party. This one is special because we are hoping to secure the Boat House Again. There will be the full compliment of beverages, music, a beautiful shrimp bar with the 1978 ice sculpture, all presented on the shores of Lake Carnegie. People will be wandering in after freshening up after the P-rade so the mood, the food and the location will be the perfect recipe  for chill-ax.

7:30pm - 9:30pm Dinner: You name it we'll have it. Grilled meats and fish, salads, pastas, breads, vegetables, incredible desserts, ice cream, and best of all a bottle of Louis the XIII at every table ( if there is a classmate that will sponsor the Louis the XIII at every table.) There will be very important speeches by very important people and multiple presentations for those who have done important things. The dinner will lead right into the fire works and there is no better place to view the fireworks than the Boat House. The band will continue to play for dancing and we will have an ice cream truck on site. After all what are fire works without an ice cream truck. 

10:00pm - 12:30am Party: There will be a band on site, the Studio 78 VIP room will be open and Serving Espresso and would this be the right time to have the Jaeger Meister ice shot station? Well at any rate please make it back to the site after the fireworks. It's really the last time we might see each other for years, so please try to make it back to the site for the last hooraah! We are going to have a picture booth set up in the Studio 78 VIP room for memory shots of you and your friends and family.

9:00am - 11:00am Brunch: We are planning a brunch at the new Lewis Center for Performing Arts. This will be a great way to see a beautiful new Princeton Venue before heading home.
