OF NEW YORK
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The British Schools &
Universities Club of New York welcomes those with some British or
Commonwealth education from countries around the world.
probably existed from the beginning of time. Clubs, especially in
England have existed for all kinds of reasons, usually to bring
together people of common interests. Samuel Pepys and G.K.
Chesterton belonged to clubs, and so have people who enjoyed playing
sports together, doing quilting projects, supporting various political
positions. Some clubs have been born of people’s pleasure in
sharing each others’ company, respecting similar values, understanding
each others’ jokes and allusions. We are such a club.
Whenever we get together and wherever there is laughter and good
times. We are a community, a small one, but we understand
each other and we offer support, congeniality, and fun, whether it is
at a First Tuesday or a cricket match, or the Annual Dinner Dance.
Our members enjoy a variety of social
and cultural activities during the year. We have an annual formal
Dinner Dance and Commonwealth Reception and such popular events as
Bangers and Mash evening, a curry brunch, Easter Monday dinner a
sumptuous NJ brunch, monthly Club Tuesdays with British newspapers, and
Bridge nights. Outdoor activities include an annual cricket challenge,
hikes with barbeques and museum trips.
These are but a few of the many
events we enjoy in the company of friends with similar educational
backgrounds. We warmly welcome new members into our Club.
