Little Round Top at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Pictured are members of the Deerfield Class of 1963 and their spouses/guests standing on Little Round Top at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on June 14, 2014. The group was hosted for two days by Ted McPherson ’63 and his wife Sally with lots of friendship and fun while dining in the historic McPherson family home, the next day seeing the film A New Birth of Freedom and the massive Cyclorama painting in the new Visitor Center and Museum, taking a guided tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield, and a visiting a scenic local winery. In addition, several in the group joined in walking the site of Pickett’s Charge, while others enjoyed listening to a music festival, going into local shops, and relaxing on the porches and the yard at the McPherson home. This gathering followed by one year the Class of 1963’s fabulous 50th Reunion at Deerfield.

In short, everyone had a great weekend extending relationships formed years ago in the classrooms, dormitories, and on the playing fields of Deerfield —all thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Boyden and outstanding faculty, administrators, and staff who had such positive impact on our lives.

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.
