A reminder, all meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, except during the summer, and when noted in the newsletter. They are held in the Diman Teachers’ Room, inside Room 251 at 7:00 P.M. Coffee and pastry are usually provided. We urge alumnus to try to attend one meeting per year.
If any person or group is interested in setting up a scholarship in someone’s memory and would like some information on how to do so, please contact Tom or Dennis. Please note: the Alumni Association is a completely separate entity from the school. Money sent to the school in the form of donations does not go to the Alumni Association. We have our own separate accounts and scholarship selection process.
Ongoing Fund Raisers
The Diman Alumni Association currently has two ongoing fund raising programs:
The Perpetual Fund
With this program, a minimum of a $25.00 donation will allow a person to have their name or the name of a person so named to be inscribed on a brass plate and attached to a wooden plaque on display in the public entrance hallway outside Room 251 (formerly known as The Tea Room.) There are several different dona- tion levels on the plaque. The brass plate can be moved up as donations accrue over time. All dona- tions are tax deductible. Please call Tom Branco for more information.
We are always accepting sponsorship ads for this newsletter. For $25.00, your business card will be included in the newsletter for one year. For more details, contact Dennis Abdow at 508-674-4552. We currently send out over 300 mailings each month.
