Where will you be when Pomfret turns 125?
This year, Pomfret is turning 125 years old, and we feel like celebrating. For this special anniversary edition of Reunion Weekend, we are inviting every member of every class — not to mention current parents, former faculty, and friends of the school — back to join in the festivities.
All said, we expect more than a thousand people to turn out, making this THE largest Pomfret gathering in a generation.
One Unforgettable Evening: The heart of the weekend is a red and black gala, which begins with a cocktail reception at the head of school's house, followed by dinner and dancing in the field house, and concludes with fireworks over campus.
Secrets of the Chapel Tour: From crypt to rooftop, don't miss this rare opportunity to explore the "hidden spaces" of Clark Memorial Chapel with former faculty member Walt Hinchman.
Doers & Dreamers — Celebrating Pomfret's Artistic Spirit. This Pomfret School Gallery exhibit will showcase the work of alumni artists from yesterday and today, representing a wide range of mediums and influences. If you'd like to submit a piece of artwork for this special edition Reunion 125 art show, please contact Advancement Officer Allison Koehler at 860-963-6150.
Open Dorms: Join us for a guided tour of the The Bricks to see how much has changed (and not changed) when it comes to dorm life.
Home Athletic Games & du Pont Cup Races: Most teams are home and the boats are in the water.
The Quiet Corner is home to a number of small bed and breakfasts, and a smattering of larger hotels. For your convenience, Pomfret has blocked rooms at several area hotels. To take advantage, please contact these hotels directly.
