$1,310 to Ruggles Scholarship Fund
We are pleased to announce the contribution of $1,310 to our club's scholarship fund. This is for the Financial Years 2015 and 2016.
The Y2015 contribution was a total of $510 from 13 club member donors. And the Y2016 was a big uptick to $800 from 20 club member donors.
Our new practice is to report the individual contributors along with the check, so that a contribution to the Club is recognized as a contribution to the College.
Newport Polo Was a Blast
We had a big group from Dartmouth + a great All Ivy Turn out for a big win at Newport Polo on July 16th, 2016. We will try to do this one again next year. See Photos on our Facebook Site.

Moving Dartmouth Forward
Dear Club Members -- I encourage all of you to learn about the Moving Dartmouth Forward campaign and President Phil Hanlon's plan which was announced yesterday, January 29th.
In particular, the underpinnings of the plan come from the Presidential Steering Committee’s Final Report (PDF). This document should be "required reading" to understand the thinking and the data which drove the recommendations.
