Lasting Bonds

Alumni & Giving

File Under: alumni, class of 1955, reunion

Earlier this month, alumnae from the Class of 1955 gathered from all over the United States to celebrate their 80th birthdays together. The group of 22 ladies gathered for a cruise on the River Queen at BB Riverboats followed by dinner at the home of Joan Drach Rebeck ’55. In addition to the opportunity to reminisce and enjoy a slice of birthday cake from Bon Bonnerie, the ladies were also able to catch up with one another and bond as a class. Mary Purcell Dyar ’55 said, “I’m closer to some people now than I was when I was at the Mount.” Happy 80th Birthday to the ladies in the Class of ’55!

Thank you to Mary Dyer Purcell for notifying us of the event and also a big thank you to the committee who organized it: Mary Purcell Dyar, Joan Drach Rebeck, Nancy Savage, Carol Higdon Roberto, and Jane Stoeckinger Abraham.
