This September, alumni everywhere came out to honor TA’s beloved, 40 year-old Mountain Day tradition. The first of many events celebrating TA’s 200th birthday this year, #MountainDayEverywhere was an enormous success and a whole lot of fun.
Over the first two weekends in September, TA alumni hiked from where they were – there were hikes in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, New York, Montana, and of course – right here in Vermont! All alumni were invited to join a local hike or head out on their own to remember and celebrate Frederick G. Torrey’s Mountain Day tradition.
Take a look at all the different hikes below. Did you go on a hike too? Let us know! Post your pics on social media, tag Thetford Academy, and use the hashtags #mountaindayeverywhere or #mountainday2018. Not on social media? Email us your photos at firstname.lastname@example.org!
