Reunion Weekend

Reunion Weekend: May 17-19

"Avon Old Farms will change with you. She will grow as you grow, grow because you grow; become famous with your fame; mark her years with your achievements." - Donald Pierpont, Headmaster 1948-1968

Come back to the 'village' to reminisce, reconnect, and rejuvenate. Each reunion class will celebrate on Friday night with individual class get-togethers. Saturday, all classes will: gather for a full day of activities; reunite as a whole Avon family for hors d'oeuvres in the Tiernan Room; enjoy dinner in the Riddle Refectory (smart casual/cocktail attire); and then celebrate with live music at the after-party at Butchers and Bakers. Children, spouses, partners, and guests are welcome for the weekend!
