Annual Harvard Dinner, Emmanuel College, Cambridge


Dear Harvard Graduate,


As the Lionel de Jersey Harvard Scholar at Emmanuel College, I have the pleasure of inviting you with the Harvard Club of the United Kingdom and Emmanuel College to the annual Harvard Dinner, which will be held on Saturday the 23rd of June, 2012 at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. We are delighted to announce that Lord Wilson of Dinton GCB, the Master of Emmanuel, will give the after dinner talk and the title of his talk is "Onwards and upwards: reflections on Whitehall and the Cambridges".

   This event is a wonderful opportunity for Harvard graduates living or studying in the United Kingdom to meet, share memories of Harvard, and enjoy a formal evening in the College where John Harvard was himself a student.  You are warmly welcomed by this year’s Harvard-Cambridge Scholars: Jake McNulty, James Pelletier, Jackson Salovaara, and me.

   The Harvard Dinner is very popular and is at times oversubscribed.  The dinner is limited to one hundred and twenty guests due to the size of the Hall, and replies will be handled strictly in the order of receipt.  Therefore, please apply as early as possible by the Monday 11th June deadline.  Applications received after the Hall is filled will be returned.

   Please apply for your ticket (s) by contacting Joan Maciver- details below.  We ask that you restrict yourself to one guest.  The price of the dinner is £55 per person, or £35 per person for recent Harvard College graduates (AB ¢07 - ¢12).    You will receive a formal pour memoire card to confirm your place(s) at the dinner in June.

   The Harvard-Cambridge Fellowship and the Harvard Club of the United Kingdom subsidies the cost for recent graduates and students.  We wish to thank them both for their generous support.

   Drinks will be served from seven o’clock to seven forty-five in the Master’s Lodge Garden or in the Old Library in case of rain.  The dinner will commence at seven forty-five in the Emmanuel Hall.  Dress is black tie.

   If you are planning to spend the night or the weekend in Cambridge, we recommend that you arrange accommodation now.  Cambridge is crowded in June; college rooms and hotels fill up quickly.

   We hope many of you are able to make time for the Harvard Dinner.  The Harvard Club of the United Kingdom, my fellow scholars and I all look forward to seeing you in June.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at my e-mail address or Joan MacIver, HCUK Past President and Executive Committee member.  Please note that the deadline of 11th of June for this event is a strict one, and as a courtesy to the Master’s Office of Emmanuel College, which helps us so devotedly with this event, we ask that you adhere to this request.
