UVA Reunions Weekend

In June, UVA will host Reunions Weekend, and Bob's Class of 1973 will be celebrating the 40th year since its members walked the Lawn and took their degrees.  The UVA Class of '73 will hold its reunion dinner on the porticos next to the Rotunda.  Interestingly, in November, 1824, another 40th (+) reunion took place at the University, when the Marquis de Lafayette returned to America, and was honored at a dinner at the Rotunda attended by former presidents Jefferson and Madison, and by the president at the time, James Monroe.  It had been just over 40 years since Lafayette had helped America win the Revolution.
