WHS 1960   50th   Class Reunion - News

 

Hello to the WHS Class of 1960 from Art Lafave and Mike Miller - No activities had been planned for Saturday the 18th during the reunion until the dinner at the Williams Inn starting at 5:30 PM.

Art Lafave and I have arranged to have the Williamstown House of Local History (WHLH) open their doors for all of our group from 10:00 until 11:30 AM. The WHLH is located directly across Field Park from the Williams Inn, where many of the class members will be staying and is really convenient. Art and I will act as 'tour guides' to show everyone a wonderful collection of Williamstown history. Actually, just wandering around inside the rooms by yourselves works well, as there are explanations with each of the exhibits. There is no charge, but perhaps a few folks would like to become members of the organization.

That is option #1, option #2 would take place between 1:30 and 3:00 PM and be a short walk/hike up to the Wahl Stone Bench on Stone Hill and to catch a great view of Williamstown above The Clark on the way back. Art and I will be happy to lead the way.


For those that don't wish to walk much, what better way to wait for the hiker's return than to visit The Clark itself. They are open from 10 AM until 5 PM and the admission price is $15. The trail we take to Stone Hill starts and ends in the Clark parking lot.

You'll note that I left 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM open for lunch and as many of our classmates will recall, there was a great place called Angelina's Sub Shop in Adams. We always used to stop there to grab a 'SUB' before going to Coury's or the Hoosac Drive-In on the weekends.



Angelina's has a shop in North Adams near the old RR station and the sandwiches are as good today as they were back in the 1950's! I'll be heading over there for lunch if anyone wishes to come along. Plenty of nearby places for lunch in town if you prefer.

As an option #3, instead of The Clark, Arthur suggests an afternoon visit to the Williams College Museum of Art that is located next to Lasell Gym. Free admission, with parking nearby on Spring St.

The events are at a leisurely pace and would get everyone back to the Inn in time for the 5:30 PM event. In the event of rain, the 'hike' portion would be canceled.

These events are all just suggestions, but Art and I will definitely have the WHLH open for all in the morning.

Williamstown awaits your return, but BEWARE, Spring St. is ONE-WAY and goes south only:
