Merry Christmas Dear Classmates!

From my home to yours, my best wishes for a blessed Christmas!

I hope Santa is good to you, but if he isn't, be sure to be good to yourself!

Our Dec 4th luncheon never happened, so I hope come Spring you will be up for getting together.

May 2014 be kind to all of us!  Please keep in touch.
A Note from Jane:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
If you are going to be traveling, bring your QRA directory with you and get in touch.
I would love to see any of you who are coming to FL.
Jane Beckert Gould

Those aren't her exact words, but I can't open the document she sent!  You get the idea though.

You know anyone can comment on this blog, just open a gmail acct.  Very easy!

Don't forget when you are bored to stop over to my blog.  I would love for you to visit!

Meeting for Lunch Dec 4th on Long Island

Hello Ladies,

If anyone is interested in meeting on Wed. Dec 4th for lunch let me know!

When a few of us met the end of Oct., we thought it would be nice to get together again before everyone gets too busy with Christmas.

You can contact me at lilmicshay@yahoo.com or my phone number is in the directory you got at the reunion.

Hope you will come, trying to think of a place around Patchogue that would be equidistant for all of us!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, many blessings!

QRAers Met in Fla.

Irene Kubisa, Judy Neville and Jane Beckert met for lunch in Orange Lakes.

 If any of you will be in FL this winter, get in touch with Jane, she would love to see you.

Marilyn Abramoske wrote to say she and Liz Burroughs and Mary Ellen Buckley met last week in NYC for lunch.  She wishes all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
They didn't take a picture, bad girls!  :)

Meeting for Lunch

Hello Ladies,

Hope this finds you well!

A speedy recovery to Anne Granahan who broke her leg and is recouperating.

Yesterday, I met 4 of our classmates for lunch at The Cooperage in Baiting Hollow.

Clare Cooney and Dolores Mueller came out from Centerport and E. Npt., and Tish Maher came from Manorville.  We were so happy to have Barbara Petry join us, she recently moved to Riverhead and was not able to make the reunion, so we had to catch up on 50 years!

We had a lovely lunch and talked for 3 hours! We barely had time to eat, but we squeezed it in between words!  :)

 We ran out of talking time, so we are planning to meet again in early December.

We would love to have YOU join us!  Please let me know if you are interested, you have my email and phone number.  It will be somewhere in Suffolk County, place to be determined.

Everyone there talked about how great it was to renew friendships at the reunion, so let's keep it going.

Get in touch!

Lots of ideas and recipes for the upcoming holidays.
I'd love to have you visit!
Happy November!

A week later...

Hello Ladies,

Hope everyone who had to travel got back home safely.

Sandy Foley, Pat Foskett  and Jane Beckert stayed here in Southampton, and we had a great time Sat. night talking about everyone.  Were your ears ringing?  :)

Sunday, Pat departed early to catch  the ferries to CT, then drive  back to Rhode Island, and the rest of us went to Brunch in town and did a little sightseeing along the Estate Section where the mansions are, and a stop at the Ocean.  Then Sandy and Jane went out to Montauk to stay with Sandy's brother for a visit.  Everyone is home and safe.

Dolores Carson and Lorraine Dethlefsen sent pictures, and it is not too late to add yours.  Just email them to me.

If you haven't signed up on the right side , please do so.  That way, whenever there is a new post it will be sent right to your email address.

Some of us plan to meet for lunch by the end of the month.  Everyone is welcome, so if you are interested, let me know!

Happy October!  Apple Pie time!

 If any of you are interested in cooking, baking, recipes and tablesettings, I do a blog.
Come visit when you are bored! I know it is not of interest to some, but maybe one or two of you would enjoy it.

All the best,

Wasn't It Lovely? How could it be 50 years?

I hope everyone had a good time yesterday, I enjoyed it thoroughly!

It was wonderful to see you after 50 years, and I hope we won't wait another 50 to do it again!  :)

Thanks so much to Candy for making the pennants and modeling her uniform, to Marilyn Abramoske for the Memorial board, and Dolores Mueller for the name tags.  Ginny Cook helped Dolores put them together.

The pictures aren't great, but here they are.  If you have any you would like added, please email them to me, and I will get them on if I can.  I know I can't copy a pdf file, so they have to be sent a different way.
I'll add more captions later.

Good health to you all, and God bless!

Do you remember this?

I go to QRA oh pity me, there's not a boy in that damn nunnery.
They let you in and then they lock the door.
I don't know why I ever went there for.
And when vacation time comes rolling round.
I'm going to turn that damn school upside down.
I'm going to drink, smoke, neck and what the heck.
The hell with QRAaaaaaa!
