The ’67 Discussion Group

Trending Topics on the Discussion Group:

• God (If God exists, how do you explain the existence of evil in this world?)
• Vietnam (How did you stay out of the war, and how do you feel about it now?)
• Favorite books from childhood (Who knew there were so many Freddy the Pig fans?)
• Sage advice (A lot of guys with medical or legal concerns have been turning to classmates on the discussion group to point them in the right direction.)
• But, interestingly, not much about The Protest.

Our Discussion Group’s dynamic and growing, with nearly 120 members.
But don’t take our word for it; head on over and see for yourself!

You’re Invited to Join the New Yale Class of 1967 Discussion Group

Get on board with your ’67 Classmates. It’s…

Already underway with nearly 120 members.
Immediate, interactive, private, secure, and definitely not social media.
Debugged and de-flamed.
Bigger, broader, friendlier and…
Much more than a listserv:

Updates on the lives of our ’67 Classmates – milestones, families, careers, projects…

  • News of Class events – reunions, mini-reunions, luncheons, gatherings, football games
  • Birthdays – we try to celebrate them for all members and alert everyone on the day; lots of good wishes flow.
  • Obituaries – alas, it’s reality for our classmates.
  • Dialogue – ideas, opinions, memories, insights; civil discourse – without flaming!
  • Commentary – current events, politics, Yale events and policies.
  • Links – hyperlinks to articles and news of current or historical interest from a wide range of sources.
  • Photos – family, pets, birds, beautiful photos, travel, favorites. Drag ‘n drop, share, enjoy.
  • Music – share .mp3 and .mp4 audio files…
  • Videos – share YouTube and other video links; John Mauceri’s “Gershwin to Hamilton” presentation at our 50th Reunion.
  • Travel – updates and photos of exciting travel by classmates.
  • Yale Memories – professors, classmates, events.
  • Favorites – historical moments, historical figures, heroes, mentors…
  • Sharing practical advice – medical/surgical specialist recommendations, healthcare, travel…
  • Emotional support – your Classmate friends are there for you…
  • Secure – private online group, protected by the Google Groups platform, on which this ’67 group is based; not nearly as hackable as the old listserv, high level of security; not searchable on the internet; no advertisements; definitely not social media. However, a posting to this group can end up on social media if a member chooses to copy and paste it. We ask that members respect the privacy of the group in this regard.
  • Monitored – by managers and maintained under strong, clear terms and conditions.
  • Fellowship – anything you want to share with classmates in good spirit.
  • Connection – with classmates who share your interests and ideas, and those who don’t; and if you want to correspond with a classmate offline, we can provide his contact information, if you need it.
  • Easy to participate – use your email or login via Web browser for access from anywhere.

Now you won’t have to wait for our 55th Reunion to re-connect or have a reunion-level conversation with your classmates. Get updated on them – and they on you – immediately. Just join the Class of 1967 Discussion Group and keep building the goodwill among us.

Here’s how to join:

Just send an email with your name, Residential College, birthday (so we can recognize you on your day), and preferred email address to yale67manager@gmail.com. We’ll send you a membership confirmation and simple instructions. Then you’ll be able to enjoy leaning in – or just lurking. Your participation will help make the Discussion Group even better. Welcome.

Sincerely,

Barry Bardo, Bob Miller, Marty Snapp, Steve Campbell
