“As the Earth prepares for Spring,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today is not only Palm Sunday, it's the first day of Spring! While this is in and of itself cause for celebration for all of us, some of us observe it more carefully than others. For those of you just joining us (or who just really, really haven't been paying attention), I'll tell you that Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH is a Druid Priestess. We here like to celebrate and educate (or at least take notice) of all our varied celebrations and observances like the Big Happy Family that we have become.
