Reunions 2016

May 18, 2016

Dear Fellow Charter Alumni and Alumnae,

One of my favorite celebrations -- Reunions -- is right around the corner. I'm going back and hope you are, too!

If you have been to Charter at Reunions time you will know that Steve and the staff of Charter Club throw a wonderful reception for alumni that starts immediately after the P-rade (actually starts during the P-rade and runs to early evening). This event offers a great opportunity to catch up with classmates and other friends in the lovely setting of the Clubhouse, with delicious food and beverages. This is a family-friendly event, offering lots of food and opportunities for games that appeal to children. We do ask alumni and their guests to make a modest contribution, which helps defray the cost of the reception.

One of the great things about the reception is that it takes place at a time when other reunion activities are at a minimum, so you won't be missing other things if you drop by.

I do hope you will be able to join us. By the way, no one will be offended if you trade the maroon and gold color scheme for orange and black.

All the best,

John Beers '76
Chairman, Board of Governors

Late Night Parties in the Taproom
Our younger Graduate Members (or young at heart) will be pleased to know that Charter will be carrying on its tradition of raucous and joyful reveling downstairs in the Taproom and Pool Room from 9:00 pm to 4:00 am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Our officers will be working hard to make sure everyone has a good time. They love a big party, so don’t disappoint them---show up!

Post P-Rade Alumni Reception
The members of the Graduate Board take pleasure in inviting Charter Graduate members and their families to our annual alumni reception after the P-Rade….starting at 3:00 PM and ending at 7:00 PM. We will have our usual great selection of food and drink for all to enjoy. The menu is available here.
  • Cost is $20 per adult and $10 per child under 10 years old.
  • For those alumni who do not want to eat, you can get a sticker to have drinks at no cost.
  • NOTE: Due to the tents in the back yard, there will be no parking on the lawn or the Club’s grounds.
