In her first official public appearance since her installation as Harvard’s 28th president, Drew Faust joined more than 700 Allston Brighton neighbors at the Allston Brighton Family Football Day Oct. 13 at Harvard Stadium.
In its 18th year, the annual celebration brought residents together for a pregame luncheon where they not only had the opportunity to meet Harvard’s new president but also got the chance to catch up with old friends. All were treated to an appearance by the Harvard University Band and cheerleaders, who gave an impromptu performance at the Allston Brighton tent.
And to complete the day, the home team did not disappoint. The Crimson took down the spirited Lafayette College team, 27-17.
