Your Class Newsletter – Volunteer Edition

If you ask me, one of the best things to come out of Dartmouth’s 250th anniversary celebration is the Call to Serve.  This initiative has a goal of achieving 250,000 hours of volunteer work in our neighborhoods, cities, and countries by the Dartmouth community.  Many ’88s have put in their own hard work to help achieve the goal. The June newsletter highlights the work of some of our classmates’ volunteer efforts.  You’ll also read about some of our classmates who are

Your Class Newsletter – Sestercentennial Edition

Who says Dartmouth can’t teach you anything after you’ve graduated? I picked up this nifty word that I’m sure I’ll be able to drop in to my conversation 2 or 3 times a week. While Dartmouth still fosters some learning in us all, our fearless newsletter editor, Ann Jackman, is here to tell us all sorts of things. She’s here with the latest edition of the newsletter and it is chock full of information that you’ll be

Newsletter: Thinking About Our 30th

One of the best parts of being the class webmaster is coming up with something to say about our class newsletter that isn’t actually news from the newsletter itself. I’ll come up with an idea and find a photo, or I’ll find a photo and latch on to a theme. This evening I was thinking about the passage of time as I read the February newsletter.

May Newsletter – The End of an Era

One of the biggest stories coming out of Hanover this spring was the closing of the stalwart Everything But Anchovies.  It seems everyone in our class has a story about their first encounter with a chicken sandwich or a late-night delivery of a pizza.  You can read some of our classmates’ memories about EBA’s in the May 2017 Newsletter.  If your paper copy has been ruined by tears (or greasy hands), download another copy here.  This edition also
