Spring has finally arrived here in Derry! After a long winter, we are looking forward to our line-up of warm weather events in 2014.
We recently had over 100 alumni and friends attend the Fisher Cats game in Manchester, complete with BBQ and fireworks. If you didn't attend, please consider coming next time around. The Alumni Association discounted the tickets for alumni attending to an affordable $17 per person.
On May 17, we will host our 5K at PA right here on the campus. Click here for all the details and to register.
This June over 700 students will graduate at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester. Although they graduate off-site, students don't miss the chance to don their caps and gowns for one final photo in front of the Pinkerton Building. If you're in town on June 16 and up for a bit of nostalgia, stop by the school's Senior Steps.
June 21 has been set for our Biennial Alumni Day luncheon to be held in the school's Academy Building (click here for map). This multi-class reunion has been a Pinkerton tradition since 1865! If you'd like a ticket, please call the Alumni Center at (603) 437-5217 or email Anne Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org. Wishing you a wonderful spring and summer!
