Thanksgiving Assembly 2013

Headmaster Clement welcomed all to the annual Thanksgiving Assembly on November 20, which included the traditional singing of “We Gather Together” and “The Browning School Song.” In observance of the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s delivery of the Gettysburg Address, a member of the Class of 2015 read Mr. Lincoln’s stirring speech. The Drumming Circle played “Improvisations from the New World,” the Ovation Orchestra played “Home, Sweet Home,” the Browning Balladeers (grade four) sang “Fifteen Miles on the Erie Canal,” and the Form II Handchimes played “An American Medley.” Remarks were also made by the presidents of the Middle and Upper School Student Councils.

Director of College Guidance Sanford Pelz ’71 and the Class of 2014 welcomed young alumni who returned for the annual Young Alumni Thanksgiving Reunion, including a luncheon back at Browning at the conclusion of the assembly. The Grytte staff was on hand to distribute their latest edition.
