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!

  1. From Marilyn Abramoske...
    I'm glad so many made the effort to attend the reunion. It was wonderful to see so many strong, accomplished women in that room who launched their lives from QRA! I've had a smile on my face since then and have been humming the school song. Hugs to all! Marilyn Abramoske Ferguson

  2. From Liz Zapp
    I enjoyed it soooo much!! I actually felt a little funny that I would be the only one from the Valley Stream bus .... but that disappeared as soon as I saw and heard all the girls as I walked in!! Wasn't it amazing to see all those ladies? I found as I chatted with everyone that they really looked the same as 50 years ago ..... it is all in the eyes! lol!
