Since 1992, legions of Dana Hall community members have taken the walk down Grove Street to Truly Yogurt, forming an unofficial relationship with the local business. To honor owner Gary Goldman’s retirement and his nearly three decades in business, Dana Hall celebrated him at the October 2 All-School Meeting.
Head of School Katherine Bradley led the festivities, welcoming Goldman and sharing a video which asked the important question: What is your favorite flavor at Truly Yogurt?
“For years, Dana Hall students, faculty, families and alumnae have headed to Truly’s to celebrate personal victories, birthdays, special occasions, the completion of a particularly challenging paper or the end of exams,” Bradley said. “We’ve gone there to boost our spirits and calm our nerves. More often than not, we’ve probably gone there for no specific reason, because I don’t think you really ever need an excuse to eat delicious ice cream or frozen yogurt.”
Goldman received a standing ovation before sharing a few words. “I am truly grateful,” he said. He recounted how his family never would have guessed they’d get into the frozen yogurt business 27 years ago, but thanks to loyal patrons like the members of the Dana Hall community, Trulys has become the place to hang out with your friends, to meet up with a teacher or to “just chill out,” Goldman said.
Thank you, Mr. Goldman, and enjoy your well-deserved retirement!
"My favorite Dana Hall memory would be the first time I ever sang the Alma Mater with my fellow classmates. That was most definitely the first time I felt like I was truly a part of something. Joining hands with my future Silver Sisters made me truly feel like I was a Dana girl."
