President Caroline Camougis, Honoree Charles Kittredge

On Friday, November 11, the New England Society in the City of New York hosted its 206th Annual Dinner at the Metropolitan Club.

Members and friends gathered to honor Charles Kittredge, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Crane & Co., with the Reginald T. Townsend Award, as well as to honor the current and past New England Society scholarship recipients.
Kittredge, a sixth-generation descendent of Crane & Co. founder Zenas Crane, took over the helm in 2007, and since then has greatly expanded the 210 year old company through innovative modernization. He is also known for his involvement with the Zenas Crane Fund for Student Aid which provides college scholarships. Upon accepting his Townsend Award, Kittredge shared the story of his New England ancestry. His gracious words and personal message were enthusiastically received by the 170 guests in attendance. The dancing and celebrating continued until midnight. A terrific evening was had by all thanks to co-chairs Jay Sherwood and Karen and Stuart Bevan.
