Fourth Annual Alumni and Friends Lobster Bake
The event, held on September 10, 2016 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. under a tent behind Bowne Hall, was an opportunity for Foundation supporters to have dinner and mingle with alumni, students, faculty, staff, Foundation board members and College trustees. It is a way to thank those who have supported the Foundation throughout the years and raise awareness about the organization among a new audience. Diana Pollard, Foundation executive director, talked about the many ways in which the Foundation has provided support to Dutchess Community College.
The guests were treated to the sounds of three DCC students in the Jazz Band Trio, Alexander Boffoli, Joseph Nieves-Luecke, and John Donohoe. Daisy Bopela, a 2004 DCC graduate and guest of Foundation board member and professor Jacqueline Goffe-McNish, recently relocated back to Dutchess County after 12 years. She said, “It was so wonderful to see my alma mater..so many great memories.” She said it was wonderful to be back on campus and that attending DCC was the best decision she ever made.
