TA Alumni and Community Members Take to the Trails

The second annual Alumni Mountain Day weekend–with a bonus Thetford community hike led by Head of School Carrie Brennan–was an opportunity to get TA’s adults out on the trails.

This #MountainDayEverywhere event encourages TA alums from all over the country to gather with others in their area–not only to relive TA’s Mountain Day tradition, but to make new connections with other alums. It’s an opportunity to get outside, meet and spend time with TA friends and neighbors, and explore nearby trails.

This year, we saw generations of TA alums getting together to enjoy the beautiful fall weather. The Alumni and Community Hike, too, was well attended by TA parents, neighbors, and alums. The group hiked the trails on campus and in the Thetford Hill State Forest and enjoyed cider in TA’s new outdoor classroom. Next year, we hope to see even more alumni and friends hit the trails together!
