I think mirrors lie.

Sold my business, the Orient Country Store Ltd., in 2011 after 31 years of ownership and operation. My wife and I are starting to do some traveling and checking off the boxes on our bucket list. Where did the time go? Since retirement I have been helping out at various Farmer’s Markets from June 1st to Thanksgving in the Nassau County area of Long Island. The farm work I do is driving, setting up and selling produce. On the days I go to market I get two very good work outs which helps me stay in shape. I am still an active volunteer firemen of 37 years for the Orient Fire Department. My daughter and grandson live in LA and my son works and lives in Detroit. I have been active in my community serving on numerous boards and an 18 year stint on the local school board. I to adhere ‘our’ school motto,’ Be Worthy of Your Heritage’.
All of the above may seem droll but I have had a good life and met some very interesting people along the way.

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.
