Centennial Celebrations Continue!

This April, the centennial celebrations continued with an Alumni Career Fair on Friday, April 5. A school-wide assembly featured two alumni, Ray Dotoratos and Billy Reilly, who spoke about their Edgewood experience. Later, students had the opportunity to interact with visiting alumni to learn more about their careers and how their lives have been influenced by their experiences growing up in Edgewood

There were a variety of  alumni who shared their stories. Laura Neale of Black Kettle Farm drove all the way down from Maine to speak to the students about being an organic farmer. Another alum, Anne Cefola, spoke to students about being a poet.

Tours of the school’s pop-up museum took place that afternoon. The tours were given by third, fourth and fifth grade docents, who led visitors around the building to examine artifacts from the time capsule, maps of the neighborhood through the years, and other fascinating pieces of Edgewood history.

The Edgewood Gala took place the next evening, Saturday, April 6, at the Westchester Country Club. The sold-out event was a hit, with guests dressed to the nines (or like it was 1920) and dancing late into the evening in front of the live band.
