The 1946 Circle
Old Sturbridge Village is honoring Alan and Betsy Peppel as our 1946 Circle Honorees at this year’s Gala. Alan and Betsy and their family have been part of the Village for more than two decades. They were married at the Center Meetinghouse and their three adult children have grown up at the Village. Betsy was an Overseer from 1999 to 2010 and Chairman of the Overseers from 2008 to 2010. She served as the Chairman of the 2009 Gala Committee and was on the Board of Trustees from 2011 to 2014. Alan and Dexter-Russell of Southbridge, MA, have been dedicated corporate supporters of public events and programs at the Village since 1998, including the recent installment of the exhibit On the Cutting Edge of History: Dexter-Russell Knives. Both Alan and Betsy are active in the community as volunteers and philanthropists with activities ranging from serving on the board of Harrington Hospital and the Tri-Community YMCA to supporting the Charlton Library capital campaign. We are delighted to be honoring them at this year’s Gala.
