Lloyd Ayer enjoys a reunion cookout in 2016. In 2012, Lloyd presents his 1947 classmate, Carol Nutile Burke, an Alumni Achievement Award.
As we embrace the New Year of 2019 at Hamden Hall, we also remember members of our community who died in 2018. As we acknowledge their passing, we also thank those who have made gifts to honor their family and friends.
One example of this heartfelt giving is alumna Holly Ayer Malloy, Class of 1973. Holly and her siblings lost their father, Hamden Hall alumnus Lloyd Ayer, Class of 1947, on Nov. 5, 2018.
To honor the memory of her father, Holly made an unrestricted leadership gift to the 2018 – 2019 Hamden Hall Fund. Holly said that her father often spoke of the impact that Hamden Hall had on his life, which included staying in touch with his alma mater. Lloyd participated in the life of school on many levels—as an alumnus returning to his milestone reunions, to honoring classmates by attending awards events, to continually supporting Hamden Hall with donations to the school. When Lloyd died at the age of 88, he remembered our school community with a planned gift. Besides Holly, Lloyd’s Hamden Hall family includes his daughter, Heidi Ayer Yanavich, Class of 1975; his son, Glenn Ayer, Class of 1978; and his sister, Anita Ayer McCoy, Class of 1951.
By making an unrestricted planned gift to Hamden Hall, Holly honors her father by allowing the school to direct financial support to several different areas: scholarship, academics, program enhancements, professional development, facility improvements, the arts, athletics, faculty support, and technology.
There are many ways to give to Hamden Hall, and any gift is appreciated—whether it’s to the Hamden Hall Fund, an endowment, or a planned gift. And any gift that is meaningful to you is meaningful to us. As a member of our school community, your gift can make a difference in the life of Hamden Hall. It will not only demonstrate your commitment to the school, but also exemplify your leadership to ensure that Hamden Hall maintains its standard of excellence.
