Welcome from our Club President
Just a few weeks ago, I attended the Send Off Picnic for local Harvard students of the Class of 2022. It was a joyous occasion and spirits ran high, fueled by the excitement of the freshmen headed east in the next few days.
The more than 50 people who enjoyed the picnic represent the full spectrum of our local Harvard community: new and returning students trading advice and preparation for campus; freshmen parents glowing with pride and worry as they plan to deliver their student to Cambridge; the interviewers celebrating the fruits of their efforts; current and past students and parents offering assurance and suggestions, as well as Board Members and Trustees of our local club.
This event and its participants represent the shared values, emotions, and experiences that comprise the raison d'etre for our club and what we gain when we gather together. I hope that you will join us for one or more events in the upcoming year and share the special sense of community that is ours. If you are not a member, please join the Club for discounted fees to events like the Fall Dinner as well as select invitations available only to Club members.
Please consider volunteering as an applicant interviewer or in support of our programs. Click Get Involved for a list of possibilities. The club is an all-volunteer group and we count on members to help us deliver strong and successful programs. I thank each of our dedicated board members and trustees, other volunteers, and club members for your support in assuring the club’s ongoing success.
I look forward to seeing you at a Harvard event soon.
All the very best,
Mary Ann Lasch, GSD’84
