Dear Members:

Hope you are all enjoying summer time activities, although with all the rain we’ve had, that could be an issue. Your board met for the first in-person meeting in over a year last week and main topic of discussion was whether we should have our October Alumnae Day or move to next spring as things are still pretty iffy in many places regarding Covid still. We are able to secure the room at the Longwood Grille for Saturday, May 14th, 2022, so by a consensus vote, the decision has been made to postpone this year’s alumnae day until next spring.

We are aware that this may change other plans people were making, but feel at this point in time, it is the safer option for everyone involved.

All transcripts have been converted to a digital format. Please send a request to the following email address:  and send in the $7.00 to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, 20 Overland Street, Suite 400A, Boston, MA 02215 – ATTN: Human Resources Coordinator. One could also call the main number: 617-975-9800

Dues are still $10.00 per year and we have not raised them in many, many years – so such a bargain!!!!
