An Evening to Remember: The Centennial Celebration of New Canaan Country School

You are here

The evening began with a toast from President of the Board of Trustees Steve Rodgers who told the 750 assembled guests that the large turnout spoke volumes about what Country School had meant to so many over the last 100 years. Head of School Dr. Robert P. Macrae, in his remarks, added thoughts about what has changed and what has stayed the same over the past century.

Centennial co-chairs Julie Halloran, Topsy Post ’66 and Gigi Brush Priebe ’74 were thanked for their tireless work and additional gratitude was bestowed upon the evening’s event co-chairs Kelley Barnett, Sarah O’Herron Casey ’80, Annie Cohen, Josephine DiBiasio and Jacqueline Jeffress who organized the seated dinner. The event culminated with a short film presentation called Audentes Fortuna Juvat: Fortune Favors the Bold and ended with many dancing late into the evening to the music of New York City Swing, or reminiscing with friends and faculty.
