New York’s First Whitgift Reunion

New York City had its very first Whitgift reunion. David Drinkwater OW (1976-1983) hosted an informal dinner in Manhattan. The invitation was sent to all OWs in America and five attended; a small number in the grand scheme of Whitgift leavers but good considering this was the first ever reunion of its kind.

The group, that included leavers from 1964-2009, representing a range of generations, met for drinks and dinner at The National Bar and Dining Rooms and are looking forward to the next gathering that will take place early 2020 and have high hopes for a larger turnout.

“It’s always entertaining and rewarding to meet up with OWs,” David said. “Our group shared memories from the 1960s through to the 2010s of the school… we look forward to continuing the NYC reunions this year and hopefully can arrange some get-togethers around the US as well.”
