Darien High School, Darien, Connecticut • Class of 1971


What a great weekend and what a great turnout!

111 classmates returned to Darien for all or part of the weekend (53 women and 58 men), and even more when you count spouses and partners who came along for the fun. We had perfect weather, too!

Folks traveled from California, Vermont, Florida, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Texas, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Maine, Colorado, New Hampshire, Maryland, Indiana, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, South Carolina, New Jersey, Kentucky, District of Columbia, Arizona — and the winner with the most attendees, Connecticut (51).

Here is the group shot taken Sunday at Weed Beach on a hill behind the paddle tennis hut. (Some people had already left by the time this picture was taken.)
