Summary of the Celebration
The Centennial celebrated the history of Greenbrae and Kentfield and gave guests an opportunity to meet Dewey Livingston, author of “In the Heart of Marin: A History of Kentfield and Greenbrae”. He and Richard Torney presented vintage photos and a variety of narratives of our local history.
Alumni, parents, students and community members were greeted by the new “History of Kent School” ceramic mosaic mural created by Kent art students at the entrance to the campus.
The “Centennial Museum” was filled with historic photographs and artifacts from the Anne T. Kent California Room at the Marin County Free Library, an historical display from the Kentfield Fire Department, Kent school memories from yearbooks and scrapbooks over the past 30 years, fifth grade students decades project, a display of paintings by George Demont Otis, and continuous slide shows of old photos and the making of the mural.
Fifth grade students presented the traditional maypole dance. Bacich students contributed murals that lined the North Quad. Old-fashioned games and a magician entertained the kids while others enjoyed the music of student jazz combos and the Swing Society.
Alumni from 1940 to the present reunited and shared stories. Friends and community members, young and old, current and from the past, enjoyed the food, the activities and reconnecting with the excellent Kent School District.
