CLASS OF 1972 TRIP TO THE BERKSHIRES Sept 11-15, 2024
As I mentioned in my earlier correspondence, we will be staying in the historic Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Highlights include The Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MassMOCA) in North Adams, Hancock Shaker Village, and house tours of The Mount (Edith Wharton), Chesterwood (Daniel Chester French), and Naumkeg (Joseph Choate). We will be having dinners at Tanglewood (no concert- closed for the season), and Ventfort Hall, a Berkshire “Cottage” built for JP Morgan’s sister in 1893. Most of the legwork for this trip has been done by our classmate Russ Ayers and his wife Kathy, who have a home in Stockbridge. They have made sure we are hitting all the highlights!! We still have a few rooms unspoken for at the Red Lion Inn, so please sign up!! The price will be in the $4000 range, like most past trips of this length. And of course if it gets oversubscribed, we will have the wait list which we always go to. There is more info on this trip on the class website. One more incentive- we will be joined by Professor Sean Wilentz (unless his schedule changes), who will provide us with his unique brand of historical perspective on the Bershires area.
