2013 Weddings

2013 is a big year for weddings for the De Gorter family.

In April, my sister’s daughter Christin – the oldest of three children was married at Hilton Head Island, SC. Her second daughter Laura – the middle child was also married at the same location but different venue last October 2012.

In June, my brother – Peter John class of ’76 will have his oldest son – also named Peter John will get married in Charleston, SC. This is the last child out of four to get married.

Then in September, my youngest son – Jonathan Shea will be getting married on Long Island, NY. The date is September 7th one day after his birthday. It’s is going to be a wild weekend of celebration. His older brother Evan Daniel will be the best man.

We also have two more wedding to attend on my wife’s side of the family, both of them take place in October.

Hope everyone is doing well in life. Enjoy the Summer.

Class of 1972

Frequently Asked Questions

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 Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events.
