Class Philanthropy 2024 – DEMS

The Class of ’69 selected Dartmouth Emergency Medical Services (DEMS) as the Fiscal Year 2024 recipient of our annual philanthropy award to a student created and run organization.   We donated $10,000 to the group to help fund their purchase of a new vehicle to carry their trained EMTs and their equipment to emergency calls.

Current year Director of Training Giulia Barbella and Executive Director Grace Cason received the check, along with a pint-size emergency vehicle with a working siren and flashing lights, at the October 2023 ’69 Coming Home weekend.

Peter Elias' reflections on Coming Home 2023

(Peter Elias offered these thoughts about our Class Coming Home gathering this past weekend.)

As I entered Hanover from the north, having spent several wonderful days hiking and eating at the Ravine Lodge, I truly felt that I was returning home. Driving past Baker, Rollins, Robo (Robinson Hall) and the Green, I recalled how I felt the first time I saw Hanover on a similarly glorious Fall day while touring New England with my father to look at possible colleges: this is my kind of place.
