'Mountain School Where You Live' events in May will honor Marilyn Covey & Pam Mainville
Mountain School Where You Live (MSWYL) is an annual event where alumni, family, and friends are encouraged to gather to appreciate some aspect of their common place. Volunteer alumni plan and host their own events. Past events have included hikes, potluck meals, literary tours, art tours, farm work, visits to historic landmarks, camping, and community service.
This year, we'd like the MSWYL weekend to be a little different.
Marilyn Covey and Pam Mainville will both retire from the Mountain School in June. Together they represent 50 years—33 for Marilyn as Head Chef and 17 for Pam as Chef—of keeping Mountain School students, faculty, and their families not only fed, but nourished. Marilyn has also served as the editor of the alumni newsletter, Pearls & Seaweed, as well as the reunion organizer.
We'd like to help Marilyn and Pam savor their final semester and honor them at our MSWYL events by sharing a theme of enjoying Mountain School food. Alumni hosts can interpret this theme as they'd like: have a potluck with dishes from Marilyn's cookbook, make your own versions of favorite Mountain School meals, or try variations on Fudgy Oat Squares. Anything goes. It will be delicious and fun!
Ultimately we'd like to give Marilyn and Pam messages and photos—both of smiling faces and food made with love—from these events. In order to make this happen, we need alumni hosts! Please sign up to host a Mountain School Where You Live event. Events should be planned for the weekend of May 13-14, but having an event on an alternate date is also an option.
