Notes for November and December 2009
Congratulations to Put Blodgett who has just been named a recipient of the Alumni Award given by the Alumni Council for a lifetime of service dedicated to both the College and to his community. Put has been successful as a farmer, a builder, a sculptor, a camp director, a track setter for Dartmouth ski racing, Chief of Course for National and Olympic competitions, and chair of the Olympic biathalon events. In addition he has served on the Dartmouth Outward Bound Safety Committee, as Woodsmen’s Weekend canoeing coach, on the Moosilauke Advisory Committee and as Vermont Environmental Commissioner. He is the 13th member of our class to receive this distinguished award.
Donald Goss has stepped down after many years of service as a member of the Dartmouth Athletic Sponsor Advisory Board. Our Class has been privileged to have had two members of the ten person board, Donald and the late Dick Dunham. Both contributed mightily to the Sponsors Program which has been very successful in bringing outstanding athletes from all over the country to Dartmouth. Many thanks, Donald!
By the time this reaches you, the lovely little white booth which is placed on the green each summer will have been removed. Bill Chamberlain has operated daily from it during the summer as the purveyor of directions to anywhere in the College He has also been very busy answering all questions regarding Dartmouth which the multitude of visitors threw at him. The larger the crowd , the happier he appeared to be. Great work, Bill!
