The quaint New England village of Stowe, Vermont
will charm you while
the nearby mountains challenge you. Our private motor coach will make

Morristown... And this year

Harvard Club of Princeton ("HCOP") invites all Ivy League alumni
along with their spouses, significant others, friends, and guests to our annual
Ivy League Ski/Snowboard Trip. And to be
perfectly clear... Those significant others,
friends, and guests DO NOT need any association with an Ivy institution other
than you! So bring 'em along! We are very inclusive!
year our destination is Stowe, Vermont which is known as The Ski Capital of the
East. The combination of magnificent
Mount Mansfield and the old world charm of Stowe Village has beckoned guests to
this mountain retreat for more than 200 years.
With an average snowfall of 22 feet, Stowe is typically blanketed in
white from mid-November through April and also offers horse drawn sleigh rides,
snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice skating.

then Morristown, NJ at 11:30AM. The bus
will be stocked with an ample supply of sandwiches, snacks, and adult refreshments
for your pleasure. We will arrive Stowe
late in the afternoon and you will have Friday and Saturday evenings free to
explore the quaint New England village of Stowe, visit its numerous shops,
savor its excellent restaurants, explore the varied nightlife, relax in the
Jacuzzis at our hotel, have a snowball fight, or take a romantic sleigh ride...
Or perhaps all of the above!!!

offers a sauna, an indoor pool, and jacuzzis to relax your bones after an
exciting day on the mountain. Equipment

you with another individual.

year we are also offering an adventurous 25 mile snowmobile journey on Sunday
through the Mount Mansfield State Forest for both the beginner and advanced
rider. Go at your own pace, or challenge
yourself on the varied terrain. This
tour has it all: hills, woods, straight-aways and speed (if you want it!) and
take about two hours. This is no “stroll
through the woods!” Check out pictures
and video at http://www.stowesnowmobiletours.com/galleries/.
and helmets are included at no additional cost. If you do not have your own warm clothing (ski
clothes work perfectly), we have suit rentals available for a small fee. All tours are customized to your ability
level and desires, so you do not need to be an "expert" to do this.
Book now for an experience you won’t forget. Treat yourself to an adventure and check out
the back country of Vermont in its prime winter season. Cost of this adventure is $149 for a single
(one person on a sled), $99 for a double (per person, two people on a sled, you
provide the match), and $89 to "ride with a guide" (one person on a
sled with an experienced guide).

A Veterans Day observance is planned for 8:30 to 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 11, in the Princeton University Chapel.
Lieutenant Colonel Peter G. Knight, PhD will deliver remarks. He is in his third year as the Director of the Army Officer Education Program at Princeton University. He has deployed to Mosul, Iraq in 2008 as the Intelligence Advisor to the 2nd Iraqi Army Division as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and previously deployed as part of the NATO Stabilization Force in Operation Joint Forge in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 2001.
The program also will include an invocation by Rev. Dr. Alison Boden, the University’s dean of religious life and of the chapel; the presentation of the colors by the Princeton University Army ROTC “Tiger” Battalion cadets; and the singing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful” by Kenneth Grayson, foreman in the University electric shop. Dr. Mary Rorro, psychiatrist for the Department of Veterans Affairs, will play a viola solo, and Emily Bobrick, a current member of the Orchestra, will play Taps. The Rev. Deborah Blanks, associate dean of religious life, will offer the benediction.
The University and local communities are invited to attend the event, which is sponsored by the Offices of the Vice President for Campus Life, Religious Life, Human Resources, and Community and Regional Affairs, the Princeton University Army ROTC and Alumni and Friends of Princeton University ROTC.
