Thank you for supporting your reunion fund!
Reunion gifts are a meaningful way to celebrate your class reunion year and to join with your fellow classmates in supporting a special project that will directly benefit today’s students. In the past, reunion years have raised up to $50,000 to mark their special anniversary.
This year, the focus of reunion giving is the Strachan Hall Project.
This project is Trinity’s most ambitious initiative in recent years, and involves the restoration of Strachan Hall and a complete renovation of the kitchen and servery at a cost of over $4 million. You might already know that the students have committed $300,000 of their own funds, which is an extraordinary affirmation of the importance of Strachan Hall to Trinity students.
This project will dramatically improve the quality of the student experience at Trinity College and will also preserve the traditions and the fond memories that are shared by all of our alumni.
Trinity College has embarked on the restoration of historic Strachan Hall and a renovation of the kitchen and servery. This project will transform the design and size of the servery and create a new kitchen with state-of-the-art food preparation equipment. The project will also see the restoration the Strachan Hall dining room.
The kitchen and its equipment have not been upgraded in well over three decades, and every piece of equipment is worn out and will be replaced. The Strachan Hall dining room will undergo careful cleaning and restoration, which will return the hall to its original splendor. Care will be taken to ensure that the historic features, art, and architecture of the dining hall are not altered. The restoration will include cleaning the trussed roof, restoring the chandeliers, and cleaning the 17th-century Flemish tapestry.
