Margi & I traveled to Ramallah, West Bank the week before Christmas. Margi sings in the Worcester Chorus and some members of which were invited to sing in a Baroque music festival sponsored by the local Al-Kamandjati Music School. Holy Cross College faculty member Peter Sulski is a Director of the Festival and works with the school which provides Palestinian youth with cultural opportunities. It would be wonderful if Al –
Kamandjati could someday partner with arts programs at Kings Academy in Jordan.
In mid -January we hosted Steven Kang, who had been our guide in Dunhuang China. He is now running a travel company and plans student/school trips so I drove him over to visit Deerfield to meet with faculty who might have an interest. Never having traveled outside China nor visited a preparatory school he was most impressed by Deerfield’s students,faculty, facilities and programs.
I have been kept busy as Of Counsel at Bowditch & Dewey, and currently serve as President of Worcester’s Mechanics Hall, renowned for its acoustics (see;) . I also serve on the National Area Council Committee of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, representing the area councils of Massachusetts and Northern New England.
So life is full and interesting! And I still enjoy visits to Deerfield, which has progressed so well.

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

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?
