Luncheon and P-rade

Saturday festivities kick off  with a reception at 11 a.m. followed by the Old Guard luncheon at noon with President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83. During the luncheon, the oldest returning alumnus from the oldest returning class will be presented with the Old Guard Cane to be carried in the P-rade and inscribed with his name and class. The Princeton Nassoons will perform treasured Princeton songs, inviting all past members to join them.

After the luncheon, buses will transport everyone to the front of Nassau Hall to assemble for the “One and Only P-rade,” which begins promptly at 2 p.m. Golf carts are available for the P-rade if reserved ahead of time. P-rade golf carts, driven by Princeton students, are free for alumni and widows and are reserved by returning  the reservation card included in the registration packet.

Reserve golf carts for the entire weekend.

The invitation and information packet was mailed in the middle of March. To request a registration packet or if you have questions, please contact Dottie Werner at the Office of Alumni Affairs: 609-258-5451 or tigerdot@princeton.edu.
