Our SUMMER 2014 Member BBQ - Saturday July 19, 2014 in Marlboro MA     A great time was had by all!  Click here for summary and photos.




Our reunion for folks who worked in and closely with BOIS (Business & Office Information Systems, located at TTB in Nashua, the group that marketed ALL-IN-1 and other fine products), was terrific!  Over 30 attended and enjoyed the conversation and camraderie.   See photos and updates on new BOIS page.


Saturday, October 19, 2013: Luncheon at the Sudbury Senior Center with showing of Digital_Man/Digital_World  

On October 19, 2013, from 2-5 PM, 35 DECconnection members and friends gathered at the Sudbury Senior Center in Sudbury, MA for a wonderful afternoon. The DVD entitled Digital_Man/Digital_World was shown, after which refreshments and visiting was enjoyed by all. It was wonderful to have so many folks gather and to continually be dedicated to "the Digital culture". Many stories about personal experiences were shared. Digital Equipment Corporation continues to live on through our retirees.


Each attendee was given a glass mug that was part of the Gordon College festivities when the Ken Olsen Art and Science Building was opened for use. There were many left over from that event and Dan Tymann gave several to me for distribution among our DEC retirees.

Reunion With Your Peers: We welcome your proposals!

The Board is considering potential DEC Connection events for next year. One of those would be a Reunion of your peers defined and organized by you. Determine the peer group you would like to invite (by geography, building, affinity group [e.g. sales, engineering, manufacturing], years, etc.) Also choose the activity (e.g., a luncheon, dinner, cookouts, ball games, golf, boat rides, travel, music festivals, etc.). The Board of The DEC Connection will provide help choosing a site, determine the cost, negotiate with vendors, provide a portion of the funding, help with setup if Maynard area, name tags, selling tickets on our website, promoting, etc. This could be a small or large group. Members, send us your proposal at: info@DECconnection.org and we will be in contact with you.
