Can you relate
Back when we were planning our 50th reunion (can we remember back that far?) we asked everyone to please send us their memories of Mount Holyoke. Back then everyone cooperated and actually did it. Not all of them could go into our presentation or our book but now on our website we have unlimited space so we thought we should share some more of these
Our latest memory comes from
Deb Hazzard Nash, about her
Others are from Gay Hartman
about her freshman year
and two more from Phyllis Gaffney
and Pat O'Keeffe.
We hope that these entries will
inspire you all to think of some of your memories to share with our class.

ONE NEW ARTICLE THIS MONTH
This month we were allowed to include 3 obituaries in the class notes.
Previously only notifications were allowed. We apologize to the friends and family of those who we only were allowed to mention.
Re the hard copy Class Letter: Please know that I was never sent the proof copy before the mailing or I would have made sure they used the correct letterhead and used a font we all could have read as well as mailed it in a timely fashion!
Mea Culpa, Wink
