Larry, thank you so much for this wonderful suggestion, and for your very gracious and generous offer! I think this would be an ideal venue - replete with all the amenities! This will be an occasion of a lifetime - a celebration to remember...let's make it top drawer!
In recent years, I've stayed in Westborough at both the Doubletree and another hotel nearby (I can't remember the name of it!), and found both of them reasonably priced and very agreeable. No doubt 'reunion group rates' could be arranged, which benefit all those coming from a distance.
It's great to see so many jumping in with ideas and suggestions and I, for one, am looking forward reconnecting after all these years! Let's keep the dialogue going.
Warm good wishes to everyone!

I'm with Larry - graciousness (no plastic chairs with a cafeteria smell) while thinking of economics. Maybe some classmates who live near Westboro with space might be be able to offer housing to classmates who want to come but have economic limitations and those of us who are single could double up in local lodging. There are creative ways to make this event affordable without abandoning comfort, fun, and graciousness (Larry, yes!) Maybe those with more resources would be willing to pay the higher contribution at WCC? I don't know how that gets sorted out - but it might just work without oversight? Just some thoughts for making it work. I also think that a date should be set soon so planning can begin so those who want to come have time to plan. Those for whom this event is a priority will make it so - and find ways to fit it into their schedule and make it work financially. If everything has to be perfect, nothing will happen. I for one am in a phase of "good enough" especially if we can be happy and laugh and maybe even dance. Music is key (for me) and I hope Ruth will reconsider her music offer - and dancing would work for me. My two cents.
I am really looking forward to the ultimate event as well as the planning process. But who is in charge??? Don't we need someone to set dates and meetings or whatever is needed? I'm a bit on the periphery - not having graduated with you all - and a bit far afield. Is there someone in MA, the most appropriate planning venue, who might be willing to start the process? I'm prepared to travel and do whatever I can and make attendance a priority.
thanks Larry - thanks Ruth -
looking forward to reconnecting sometime soon.
