May 7, 2016 Community May Day Celebration

Dear Greenbrae Residents,

I am writing to let you know that the Kentfield-Greenbrae Historical Society (KGHS) is having a May Day Community Celebration on Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and to invite you to attend this event, which will take place at Kent Middle School. You may recall that, two years ago, the KGHS organized the Centennial of the Kent School. This event was a tremendous success with over 2,500 community members in attendance. This year, the KGHS is celebrating the entire Kentfield and Greenbrae community with an afternoon of vintage kids’ games, maypole dancing, the Kent Jazz Student Band, historical displays, Kentfield student project, historical tours by the Kent Student History Club, and food trucks. Attached is a poster for the event. The KGHS is thrilled to welcome the following local organizations to its Community Hall:

Kentfield Fire Department
College of Marin
Marin General Hospital
Kent Woodlands Property Owner’s Association
Greenbrae Property Owners Association
Kentfield Schools PTA
Kentfield Schools kik Foundation
