Staying Connected to St. Margaret's School
It has been great watching the arrival of all the girls on Facebook and remembering the first-day excitement of going back to SMS. It makes me think of crisp days on Gilchrist field playing field hockey, River Day, the picking of the Blue and Grey teams, and preparing for the year to come.
The Alumnae Association has been working hard all summer to ensure a great year for alums. We are busy planning events, including the Golden Thistle Luncheon, the Annual Alumnae Association Meeting, and of course, Alumnae Weekend.
We are excited to announce a new fundraising event, Music On Water Lane, chaired by Hillary Pugh Kent '99. On November 8 at 7:00 p.m., the gymnasium will be filled with the sounds of Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach performed in a classical chamber music concert by members of the Northern Neck Orchestra. Learn more and purchase tickets.
We have a great opportunity to include alumnae as sponsors for Music on Water Lane. If you own or work for a business that is interested in being a sponsor, please reach out to me. Personal alumnae sponsorship is invited, as well.
The Office of Admission is looking for help at the Stratford Hall Wine and Oyster Festival on Sept 21-22. The shifts are as follows: 9am-12pm, 12pm-3pm, 3pm-6pm (6:30 with clean-up). Please reach out to Joycelyn if you are able to volunteer.
I hope everyone has a great September and I look forward to sharing more exciting updates in October!
