The Montem Society Donors Luncheon on November 7, 2019, was wonderful. Our guests were Jim '66 and Tudi Arneill, Ellie Caulkins, Diane Claassen '70 Nichols, David Claassen, Ronni McCaffrey, Susan Osgood and Kristin Robbins. These individuals are a former head of school, current board member and grandparent, former board chair, alumni, parent of alumni, alumni board member and former faculty member.
It was heartwarming to hear each person share his/her personal relationship with the school, deep connection and strong desire to financially support the school into the future. A luncheon highlight was hearing from two eighth-grade students who shared remarks about their experiences at Graland.
Joining me at the event were Josh Cobb, Head of School, who gave a brief update of the school and his major priorities, and Jon-Erik Borgen '92, current parent, trustee and finance committee chair, who shared an overview of the school's financial strength and fiscally responsible management. Graland is forever grateful to all of you who have included Graland in your estate plans. For those unable to attend this luncheon, please know you are always a welcome visitor at Graland.
