Mountain Day's 90th Anniversary

Ninety years after Cushing’s first Mountain Day in 1926, the CA community headed to Mt. Monadnock in nearby Jaffrey, NH, on Sept. 23 to climb the popular New England peak once again. Although the temperature was much hotter than in recent years, it didn’t deter our mighty Penguins from reaching the summit and enjoying the views for miles under clear blue skies. While some students chose to stay at the base to play games or even catch up on homework, it was nevertheless a fantastic day to relax with friends, enjoy the outdoors, and celebrate this great Cushing tradition.
