President's Message

May 2017

To all faculty, students, and alumni:

Spring is in the air.  The campus is abloom with blossoms of all sorts.  It’s the time of the year when life is renewing all around us. At the Club, we are embracing  he wonderful feelings that spring brings out. Members can enjoy the re-awakening of life by joining with colleagues and friends in a warm and hospitable environment.  I can’t think of a better way to honor mothers than with a fabulous brunch on Mother’s Day. 

Commencement is just around the corner and our newly minted graduates are about to embark on a new life beyond the Van Wickle Gates.  I strongly recommend that our members visit the Club during Commencement weekend.  It’s the best place for a relaxed and fine dining experience before the Campus Dance!

Other excellent ways to reconnect with family, friends and colleagues include: Welcome Back Club n’ Community Pre-Campus Dance buffet, Reunion/Commencement weekend dining, Sizzling Hot Grill Event, Summer High Tea, and Seafood Extravaganza to name just a few! Keep current on all these events and others through the Club website; www.facultyclub.brown.edu.

During this time of renewal, we would appreciate our members reviewing and updating their membership profiles. It’s only by keeping current with our membership that we can continue to provide exceptional experiences each time you enter our Club. Our goal is aligned with the University’s which is to maximize email correspondence and to eventually move to a bi-monthly newsletter that can be sent either electronically or mailed so that all of our members receive news about the fabulous events in a convenient manner. To that end, we will need your assistance. We strongly encourage you to contact Mary Hogan or Kristen DePetro with questions about your current status or to change your membership profile at Faculty_Club@brown.edu.

Enjoy your spring and stay tuned!

 -- Joseph DiMartino, President of the Brown Faculty Club
