Tim Day ’55’s Proud Moment

Tom L’Esperance ’55 writes: “I’m submitting this e-mail from Tim Day to me with his permission. He related to me: ‘You have my permission – although some of our left leaning classmates may find it unsavory..Tim’

I feel that our fellow conservative classmates will actually savor the sign in the attachment.

“Hi Tom: I am pretty proud of this union protest stand outside our new Bar-S Foods Corporate Office and at a second location outside the new Day Family Office. The union is apparently upset because we did not use building contractors with unionized labor because those contractors were uncompetitive. I guess we should have been happy to pay inflated costs if union labor was involved; however, we checked on the people manning these protest stands, and guess what — they are not members of any union. So, even the union is unwilling to pay excessive wages and benefits for their own work.

As you may know, I have had many struggles with unions over the years – some pretty violent. But Bar-S Foods has never had a union and we remain union free in every facility — and I am confident that our factory workers will keep it that way. Most of our operations are in Oklahoma, and in 2001 I worked closely with Governor Frank Keating to make Oklahoma the 22nd Right To Work State in spite of massive counter campaigns by union sympathizers. No wonder the unions love me!

Best regards,


Tom L’Esperance Class of 1955

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.
