Potluck with the Cornell High Road Fellows

Join us for a potluck picnic with this year’s Cornell High Road Fellows!


The Cornell High Roads program brings 20+ current undergraduate students from Cornell to Buffalo every summer for an 8 week program. Students participate in research, engaged learning, and service in community-based economic development in Buffalo during the program.

Alumni, families, and friends are invited to the picnic shelters at La Salle Park on Saturday, July 20 starting at 11 am. This is a great chance to engage with current students and connect to the next generation of leaders in our Cornell community.

Dinosaur BBQ will be provided as the main dish but please bring a dish to share (full list of requested items on registration page). Lawn games welcome also!

Annual Meeting and Faculty Speaker

Please join us at our annual meeting on May 9th – a Cornell faculty presentation and dinner at The Webb @ Pearl. Come for a cocktail followed by a delicious buffet of Pearl Street’s famous braised pot roast, honey basil chicken, vegetable primavera, and dessert. Event begins at 6:00 pm. Cash bar.

The Club would like to welcome our faculty speaker, Dr. Patrick Reed. Dr. Reed’s Decision Analytics for Complex Systems research group has a strong focus on the sustainability of Food-Energy-Water systems given conflicting demands from ecosystem services, expanding populations, and climate change. The management modeling tools developed by the Reed Research Group combine multiobjective optimization, high performance computing, and advanced spatiotemporal visualization and uncertainty modeling techniques. Engineering design and decision support software developed by Dr. Reed is being used broadly in academic, governmental, and industrial application areas with more than 30,000 users globally.

As part of our annual meeting we will vote on this year’s new Board Directors and Officers.

The $20 registration is required and includes price of buffet. Cash bar. Contact Catherine March ’14 cam489@cornell.edu for more information.

October Book Club

Our October Book Club meeting will be held on October 9 (2nd Tuesday) at the home of Rick Greenberg. Rick has chosen the graphic novel, Fun Home: a FamilyTragicomic by Alison Bechdel. This book is a QUICK read.
From Amazon: “A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.”
From Wikipedia:”
The memoir focuses on Bechdel’s family, and is centered on her relationship with her father, Bruce. Bruce Bechdel was a funeral director and high school English teacher in Beech Creek, where Alison and her siblings grew up. The book’s title comes from the family nickname for the funeral home, the family business in which Bruce Bechdel grew up and later worked; the phrase also refers ironically to Bruce Bechdel’s tyrannical domestic rule. Bruce Bechdel’s two occupations are reflected in Fun Home’s focus on death and literature.

Please contact Celinda Crego ’79  (cac432@aol.com) for additional information, or if you would like to attend or host an upcoming Book Club meeting.
