Denison is coming to Naples!

We’re celebrating in Southwest Florida on Thursday, February 27. Join us for a full day of activities at the Hilton Naples, including a workshop on estate planning; a unique presentation on climate by Associate Professor Erik Klemetti; a State of the College address by President Adam Weinberg; stories from Jim Quarles ’68, member of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force; and a screening of Censoring Nuremberg, a documentary film by Professor Emeritus Dave Bussan ’81 and Tim Raycroft ’89 that chronicles French Professor Emeritus Arnold Joseph’s time as a translator of mail to and from Nazi prisoners at the Nuremberg Trials.

The cost for the entire day is $60 per person, which includes the continental breakfast, morning presentations, lunch, afternoon presentations, and evening reception.

Can’t stay all day? You may choose a half-day registration for $40 that includes only the continental breakfast, morning presentations, and lunch (afternoon presentations and evening reception are not included).

Arriving early? Also, for Denisonians who are able to gather on Wednesday evening, we are hosting a reception from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on February 26 at the Hilton. A cash bar will be available for the Wednesday reception, and no registration is required.

Hit the links! On the morning of Friday, February 28, we will offer golf with President Weinberg with tee times starting at 9:15 a.m. at Club Pelican Bay in Naples. Green fees for Friday’s golf outing are not included in the registration fee, but you can indicate your interest in playing golf in the registration process.

About Erik Klemetti’s Presentation

It is a challenge to sift through all the information (and misinformation) about how Earth’s climate operates on the short- and long-term. Associate Professor Klemetti will discuss the science and dispel the myths behind the drivers of climate on our planet.

About Jim Quarles’ Presentation

Jim Quarles ’68 started his career as a member of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force and recently concluded his service in the Special Counsel’s Office headed by his colleague Robert Mueller. Between those bookends, he was a trial lawyer representing many technology companies. Like all veteran trial lawyers, Jim is an inveterate storyteller, and he has agreed to share some of his stories with us.

About Dave Bussan and Tim Raycroft’s Presentation

Emeritus Professor of Cinema Dave Bussan ’81 and Tim Raycroft ’89 directed and produced “Censoring Nuremberg.” This short documentary chronicles Denison Professor Emeritus Arnold Joseph’s time as a translator of mail to and from Nazi prisoners at the Nuremberg Trials. After the screening of the film, Dave and Tim will be on hand to discuss the making of the film.

We look forward to seeing you in Naples!
