Alumni across class years gather for holiday season
Alumni, current and past parents, and faculty celebrated the holiday season at the annual Canterbury New York City Christmas Party on Thursday, December 6. Over 120 alumni were in attendance, spanning from class years from 1950 through 2017.
Peter Tucker '78, President of the Society of Alumni, addressed the group: "Canterbury is the great school that ties us all together," he began. "Tonight's event allows us to celebrate out Canterbury memories and experiences and helps us connect with each other and the School." Head of School Rachel Stone also made remarks on the same theme, speaking to the far-extending reach of the Canterbury community.
Will Finn '07, Co-President of the Canterbury Club of New York (CCNY), also delivered notes and announced news of upcoming events to be sponsored by the Club. Each of the events serve to bring together alumni of all class years for networking opportunities. "We will host various events with the goal of connecting younger alumni with accomplished professionals in the New York City area," Finn detailed. "A further schedule of events will be published in the upcoming weeks for those wanting to get involved."
The Christmas party continued after the main gathering with a band, spearheaded by alumnus Nick Cabrera '08, playing at a nearby location. "We know that the real reason I am up here is to announce where our evening concludes," joked Finn before the group departed for the after-event.
