Beth and Peter have been married for thirty years and raised four children in Darien, all of whom have now left the nest.

Their family members have visited the house and fit right in, enjoying the scholars’ company during game night and dance-a-thons in the kitchen. Beth and Peter look forward to planning many more fun activities with the girls and to being there to love, support and nurture them in the weeks and months to come.
