We noticed a SPAM Email hitting alumni mailboxes today, and we wanted to alert you to just ignore it and do not respond as it is some sort of a scam to gather data. It is not coming from the Camden Alumni Association.
Below is a sample of the email text for reference:
From: Kimberly Boardman Dean <email@example.com>
Date: February 21, 2023
Subject: Camden Alumni Association
How are you doing? Are you available at the moment?
I need you to please handle a little project for me on behalf
of the association.
The Camden Alumni Association is requesting donations/gift
cards to assist Veterans at hospice and palliative care unit
who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every donation helps provide resources that will help stabilize
a Veteran and ensure a positive upward trajectory during
this critical time.
Kindly confirm if you can help out.
Kimberly Boardman Dean, 1992
Please ignore this email and do not reply or send anything to an address you might receive if you responded and received a reply.
This is a SCAM, It is not a legitimate request
from the Camden Alumni Association.
The Camden Alumni Association has a new “permanent” mailing address:
Camden Alumni Association
PO Box 113
Camden, NY 13316-0113
This address will be used for all future incoming mail: Dues Payments, Banquet Reservations, etc.
We would also like to announce the addition of two new board members:
- Registrar: Dustin Scholz, Class of 1999
- Director, Membership Committee: Charles [Chuck] Hurd, Class of 2002
Welcome to the Board of Directors, Dustin & Chuck. As time goes on over the next several months, I will be advising and assisting Dustin & Chuck as they get acquainted with the systems in place for the Alumni Association. By the time the June 2023 Banquet rolls around, they should be well versed in the systems and I will completely step aside except for possible website maintenance and assistance with the annual mailing.
In the future, our Treasurer, Deanne Suits, will be handling the incoming payments & mail, and then turning over the forms to our new Registrar for processing into the alumni database.
Apologies for the delay in posting the 2022 Banquet Photos, I really thought I had done it a few months ago after I got the pictures from Marie Mastracco that she took during the banquet, as I was not in attendance to take pictures myself….

If anyone else has photos they would like to add to the album, you can send them to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
