On May 12, 2018, the Cornell Hotel Society of Washington DC/Baltimore gathered with 40 members to celebrate the 90th anniversary of CHS. The event was held at the newly opened Canopy Hotel in North Bethesda thanks to Dave Pollin ’90 of Buccini Pollin Group and Joseph Bojanowski (husband of Pia Bojanowski MMH ’96) of PM Hotel Group. Bill Eaton ’61 was the guest speaker at the event and told the group what it meant for him to be a Hotelie for Life® and how the school has played a prominent role in his career and family. Bill and Phillis hosted a Hotelie picnic at their house which evolved into the Cornell Mid-Atlantic picnic and then the “Cornell Mid-Atlantic Crab Feast” for the past 40+ years. Bill told the group that one of the best investments he ever made was paying lifetime dues to the Cornell Society of Hotelmen as a recent grad and later in life that serving as a Cornell Trustee was one of his greatest honors. His comments were followed by a competition of CHS trivia and a tour of the hotel.
