From the President...
The Harvard Club of New Hampshire has been in existence for over fifty years and is dedicated to providing benefits for its member and to promote the University. In recent years, the Club has provided support for Harvard in Schools & Scholarships, Book Prize programs, Summer Community Fellowship Program. Rolf Goodwin ‘78, our vice president, has successfully coordinated the statewide alumni interview process for NH high school students seeking to gain acceptance to Harvard. Our treasurer, Doug Chamberlain ‘73, has performed admirably and the club is financially secure. In July, 2015, the club increased its activity in the western part of the state, with the founding of the Monadnock Harvard Radcliffe chapter of the club, started by Tom Blodgett ‘61, ‘65B, in Peterborough. Alumni activities and participation have lagged in recent years and, as president of the Harvard Club of New Hampshire, I encourage you to join me in helping us become a stronger club. Our goal is to foster fellowship by providing social activities, business and career networking opportunities and educational programs to all generations of our members. We are in the process of increasing the number of programs that we will be offering our members. Speakers from both the University and local community will be featured at these educational events. We seek new leadership and membership to grow our club so that it meets these needs. The recruitment of younger alumni is special focus and we plan to provide relevant social and networking events in fall of 2016.
Please join us at the next annual luncheon on May 15, 2016, location TBD. Our speaker will be Stuart Shieber, James O. Welch, Jr. and Virginia B. Welch Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard Engineering & Applied Science.
Carol W. Robey ’77, ‘82M, president of the Harvard Club of New Hampshire
