While giving to the MCI Annual Fund assists the school with its greatest need, you may choose to support an area of MCI that is special to you.

Thanks to contributions from Mike Dow '84 and Eric Thompson '84, the front campus has a newly restored sign based upon the original.  On behalf of the Science Department and all of our students, thank you to Robert Cianchette for the gift of a "Flash Forge Adventurer 3D Printer".  In the last year, Gregg Patterson '69 contributed a work truck for the MCI maintenance crew that has been helpful with keeping our campus clear of snow in the winter and looking beautiful in the summer.

The Meridian Lodge #125, Masons of Pittsfield provided a gift that allowed the MCI science department to augment its 3D printer capacity. The printers have not only allowed hands on learning in the classroom, but MCI teachers used them to help make face shields during the pandemic.
