DWC Board of Directors attend CAGOW 2016 in Hanover

On a frigid cold January weekend in Hanover, DWC of Boston Board members attended CAGOW, the annual Dartmouth Club and Group Officers leadership weekend. Over a hundred attendees arrived from US Dartmouth Alumni Clubs, including Hawaii.  Work sessions on operational aspects of managing Clubs were made available as well as inspiring talks by Dartmouth professors and administrators.  

This year’s theme “Building the Dartmouth Alumni Community Across Generations” included innovative ideas from the field.  A novel idea from the Chicago Club included staging a museum overnight for Dartmouth families with children at a science museum. Pajamas from the Coop were included.  

At the Saturday luncheon our members were introduced to student scholarship recipients to hear their stories about what Dartmouth means to them.  Most importantly, the inspiration generated from the CAGOW event carries forward to our local planning for the year ahead.

Dartmouth Women’s Club of Boston was recognized in the first “shout out” on Saturday for continuing scholarship support. Last year, DWC donated $10,000 raised through donations as well as funds from the annual Silent Auction event in December at the Weston Golf Club.

85th DWC Anniversary Celebration at the Chilton Club, May 2015

With eighty guests in attendance including nine Past Presidents, DWC of Boston celebrated its 85th Anniversary Friday, May 8 at the Chilton Club, an elegant Boston brownstone on Commonwealth Avenue. Hosted by a committee of members including Anne Cuervo, Thuy Ha Ngoc and Claire Bertucci, featured speaker Martha Beattie, Vice President of Dartmouth Alumni Relations offered an inspirational talk about Dartmouth College and its leadership mandate to inspire lifelong learning and to foster enduring relationships among students, the college and their families.

President of DWC Mitra Sioshansi presided over a business meeting and presented Dartmouth College with a financial contribution generated from DWC activities that support student scholarships. Following a two year term of office with stimulating events, increased membership and financial contribution, Mitra presented DWC’s gavel to Elaine Becker, incoming President.

DWC member Anne McNay introduced Martha as a member of the great Dartmouth class of 1976, the first four-year class to matriculate women at Dartmouth. While at Dartmouth she became a rower that included a seat on the first women’s eight to participate in the Head of the Charles. Martha’s field is mathematics starting her career as teacher and coach of skiing and rowing at Phillips Andover. Active in the Dartmouth Alumni Council for years she received Dartmouth’s highest honor for alumni service, the Dartmouth College Alumni Award in 2010.

Several guests attended the celebration with ancestry connections to Dartmouth including great grandfathers and grandfathers who attended the college. Former Past President Barbara Parish honored Elaine Little with remarks and an engraved bowl for long standing service to the Club. Unique among the Dartmouth Clubs, DWC of Boston members are mothers, spouses and alumnae of the College engaged in fellowship, connection and scholarship development.

DWC Wins Award at CAGOW

Dartmouth Women’s Club of Boston was recognized at the Club And Group Officers Weekend seminar (CAGOW) that was held on January 23-25 at Dartmouth College. DWC was named “Best Small Club of the Year” at a Saturday evening gala dinner.

DWC of Boston is known for innovative events and programs, fellowship and outreach to mothers of Dartmouth students and sponsorship of Dartmouth scholarships. Our membership has increased significantly in the past few years, particularly among women alumnae.  

We would like to remember Mrs. Frank Ford Hill for establishing such a great and unique club 85 years ago and thank all the presidents and their boards after her for paving the path to such a great triumph. The award is a beautiful engraved pewter bowl along with a certificate to acknowledge our service to the college.
