Alumni posted enthusiastic comments at PAW Online with the Oct. 10 story about members of the Class of 1977 who distributed wheelchairs to more than 500 people in Peru as a 35th-reunion class-service project. 

“Mil gracias a ’77,” wrote GREG ­PLIMPTON ’73, a Peace Corps volunteer in a small Peruvian town that received seven wheelchairs. One of the new users “cried as she thanked me for her gift, as did I,” Plimpton said. 

“The trip was an amazing bonding experience for my husband, our daughter, and me,” commented COLLEEN KELLY ’77 s’77. “It was wonderful to give back in honor of our 35th.”

“What a great way to give back and honor Princeton — and make Reunions even more meaningful!” wrote TOM ­LEYDEN ’77. Added DAVID BEHRING ’77: “I hope that every Princeton class will try to do some form of community service in honor of their major reunions.”
