ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — Cornell University in New York is holding its first 80th class reunion, and two members of the class of 1931 will be there to celebrate.

There are still 30 living members, and they’re 102 years old.

Rosemary Hunt Todd of Hollis, N.H., will be on hand Thursday evening to present a spirit banner for Cornell’s newest alumni class that’s reuniting, the class of 2006. The university says Ruth Laible Tallmadge of Rochester, N.Y., planned to be with Todd, but is now expected to arrive for festivities Friday.

Another member of the class of 1931, Bill Vanneman, had written to his classmates and encouraged them to return for the reunion set for Thursday night. He had planned to attend, but he died April 26th.

Vanneman had been class president.
