2013 125th Birthday Celebration

Browning’s 125th birthday celebration was reason to roll out the red carpet for the School community and close 62nd Street for the evening on Saturday, October 5. Guests, more than 600 in number, could barely believe their eyes when they saw the School building festooned in a red ribbon and bow. With white tents in front of the red doors, Browning's Key Society boys dressed in vintage clothing, and an appearance by John A. Browning himself, it was a party to remember!

Balloons bearing the 125th anniversary logo and interior-exterior video screens beckoned guests to share in a look back at Browning’s storied history while enjoying a tour of the wonderful renovations that have taken place in the past few years. The new lobby, expanded gym, cafeteria and technology and media center, as well as the outdoor terrace, provided venues for conversation, cocktails and camaraderie as alumni, parents, grandparents and faculty shared in the excitement of Browning’s past, present and future.

Rounding out the evening were remarks by Headmaster Stephen M. Clement, III and Board of Trustees President James Chanos who announced STRONG AND TRUE: The Campaign for Browning. Please look for more information in the mail about the campaign, and enjoy the photo gallery!
