Memory Tree Honors TA’s Loved Ones for the 32nd Year

Every year as the holidays approach, the Thetford Academy Alumni Association lights a memory tree in front of the White Building. Each bulb represents a lost loved one remembered by their fellow alumni, friends, neighbors, and family. Thank you to everyone who made a gift in memory of a loved one this year.
