Their intention was to form a fellowship of Dartmouth men over the age of eighteen, who would cherish their relationship with the town of Dartmouth, and could help to enhance the lives of the townsfolk, even though some of them may have moved away to live elsewhere.

So does that mean the association is only meant only for the elderly townsmen? Well the answer is most definitely NO! The word old has many meanings when used in particular contexts, and in this case we think that it was intended to be interpreted as "Denoting someone who formerly attended, or lived/lives in, a specified place. e.g. as in ‘an old Etonian’. and not someone who is aged.

WELCOME TO THE NEW SITE FOR THE ODA
UPDATED 02-6-2019

The site now has a catalogue of every President, see menu item.
I am now working on placing some archive press information into the Events and Projects sections. If you are an existing member of the Old Dartmothians' Association, and you happen to have some old photos of past events and projects, perhaps from during your time when you were a president. Then I would very much like to hear from you with a view to getting the details up on the site.
