Community Gathers for A Country Night Under the Stars

More than 300 New Canaan Country School parents, faculty and staff gathered for A Country Night Under the Stars biennial dinner and auction, held on campus, April 28. Hay bales, burlap tablecloths and Western-themed decor set a comfortable, casually elegant tone in the party tent, while a mechanical bull ride and live music performed by Doug Allen and his band provided high-energy entertainment.
