Chapter 1776 is the name of the
original Chapter of the Digital Retirees Association (DRA). It was
based in Sudbury MA and meetings were held quarterly, with a speaker
from the community.
As the DRA opened up to become the
DEC Connection, Chapter 1776 phased out as the same individuals who set
up meetings were now involved as Board Members for the DEC Connection.

Vice President for Advancement, Communications and Technology from
Gordon College, Wenham, MA.
about the groundbreaking event for the Ken Olsen Arts and Science Center

presentation, Dan played portions of the DVD that was prepared in
advance of the event for the purpose of being part of the Tribute to Ken
Olsen program, which was held in the campus Chapel. Many of the people
at this meeting (Oct. 25) had not been able to attend the event on June

tribute made to Ken Olsen. Dan brought many "Tribute to Ken Olsen" mugs
as gifts. Plus copies of the DVD were available.
