Doane Stuart


Reunion – October 18 and 19

The 2019 Reunion will be held on October 18 and 19, 2019.  All events are held here at The Doane Stuart School, 199 Washington Ave, Rensselaer.  With feedback and input from alumni/ae we have modified the schedule of events for Saturday.  We have provided more opportunity to mingle and socialize and we are welcoming you to bring your family on Saturday as we would love to meet the children and grandchildren of our Alumni/ae.  We will have added activities and entertainment for the children during the awards presentation and luncheon, as well as outside activities during the Blue/Green Soccer game so that children can play together.  Watch for more details.  

Friday, October 18

We will have a cocktail reception (from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.) on our 22,000 square foot Green Roof and in our Board Room.  There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres, music, beer, wine and soda, a slideshow of alumni/ae in attendance, vintage yearbooks to peruse, and a faculty/alumni-ae art exhibition. We are happy to have again this year our ’96 All Star Band featuring Graham Tichy and Ian Carlton.  Last year we had guest performers, including Leanne Robinson Maine ’94, Abigail Wolff Mariani ’78 and Michael Cannon ’08. 

Saturday, October 19

Our day begins at 11:00 a.m. with time to connect with alumni/ae from other classes and schools.  At 11:30 a.m. we will have an amazing luncheon prepared by our own Chef Dave from Casey’s Restaurant.  After lunch, we recognize the anniversary classes, and we present both the Head of School and Distinguished Alumni/ae Awards.  This year, there will be a soccer game – Blue Team (DS Blue, KA Red, and SA Spartans) against Green Team (DS Green, KA White, and SA Amazons) at 2:00 p.m.  Our students are delighted at the idea that alumni/ae can earn points for their team.  Saturday night is left open for classes to have their own dinners.  We are prepared to help with a list of locations that will suit varying tastes and preferences.

We have reserved a block of rooms at two hotels this year.  Your choices are:  The Hampton Inn and Suites Albany-Downtown (518-275-4501 Group Code R02) and The Fairfield by Marriott Albany East Greenbush (518-477-7984 Group Code DS Reunion).  The Hampton is $132 per night and the Fairfield is $124.
