The Fairfield Chapter is unique because it is the parent host of the Dogan Alumni Association. It is where we have our humble beginning, we had our school, we have hope, we have dreams for a better tomorrow. All of these were an essential part of our upbringing and our education. Therefore for no other reason than the seeds that were planted at Dogan we can do no less than acknowledge that the Fairfield Chapter holds a place of special interest in the hearts of those who pass through the doors of Dogan.
