Class of 1977 on Zoom

Since March, 2020 my classmates and I started getting together for Friday cocktail hour. What started as 3-4 guys quickly grew to close to 20 today. Here’s a recent pic of some of our participants, starting upper left corner top row, Dave Martin, me with my shemagh which Matt King sent to a group of us for our Zoom calls, Tucker Smith, Wayne Wall, second row left to right, Townley Paton, Rob Manning, Tom Mallory, Stewart Day, bottom row left to right, James Gilbane, Jamie MacPherson, Dave Coombs and Bob Dewey.

Other regular participants are Matt King, Randy Farr, Hamilton Davison, with recent additions, James Beit and Thom Page. We also regularly group chat often, many of whom put up with our chattiness. And, we’ve even had a virtual wine tasting that I’ve hosted and that I’m preparing for another.

We have really been enjoying our calls together. Some have lasted over 5 hours! We welcome more of our classmates!

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus. As we also send out periodic invitations, it’s always best to make sure we have your current physical address. And if you do plan on visiting campus, why not tell us ahead of time?
