The Yale Club of the Treasure Coast is the regional association of Yale alumni, students, parents and friends for the middle of Florida’s East Coast – from Stuart to Melbourne with its home in Vero Beach, Florida.
The Yale Club of the Treasure Coast was originally organized in 1983 by Harry Walker and Ash Andon who were the 1st and 3rd Presidents. Our purpose is to keep in touch with the excitement of our world-class university, to promote a positive image of Yale through community focused good works and to foster a sense of camaraderie among our membership through substantive speaker discussions, and social activities such as Yale-Harvard football game parties, golf matches and events with other Ivy schools. Currently, we have over 80 dues paying members from Stuart to Melbourne, though primarily in Vero Beach, going back to the class of 1937.
For additional information please contact us at email@example.com or 772-766-3285 or PO Box 643176, Vero Beach, FL 32964-3176.
We encourage all Yale Alumni, undergraduate, graduate, parents and grandparents to join with us to enjoy stimulating speakers, camaraderie, good food and drink, and special events that are held here on the Treasure Coast during Season (Nov – May). To participate in the club’s program for the season, dues are $100 per couple, $75 per individual.
