A Legacy Families “Meet-Up”: Alumni Visit D-E, Create New Connections

D-E connections galore! In a recent visit to Dwight-Englewood, Beverly Vahlteich DeLaney ’53 and her granddaughter, Catherine Macleod Daigle ’13 spent an afternoon reconnecting with many community members. After a “catch up” lunch at Giovanni’s Bicycle Club in Englewood Cliffs, they visited the home of Michele and David Opper ’92 in Englewood. It was previously discovered their current residence was the childhood home of Beverly Delaney. In an almost ceremonious way, Beverly passed on one of the original house number plates to the Opper family. With Jake Opper ’27 and Ben Opper ’23 also present, seeing several generations of D-E alumni under one roof was incredible!*

Beverly and Catherine later enjoyed watching the matinee performance of the Upper School musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Both Beverly and Catherine are theater lovers, and Catherine spent much of her D-E career in the theater. It was only fitting she watched the same production she had student-directed 10 years earlier, during her senior year at D-E. It was a wonderful opportunity to see old and new faces after the show.  Catherine will be going to The Outsiders on Broadway with D-E’s Drama Club in April. 

Today, Beverly enjoys spending time with her family and their dogs. She is also an active member in her assisted living community in West Caldwell, NJ. Catherine is currently the Director of  Amateur Licensing at Theatrical Rights Worldwide, a full-service theater licensing company based in New York City.
