The 196 students who graduated in 1966 had the good fortune of being the first freshmen class to move into the new school (the current school we are in). Earlier classes were in the old school which served as both a school and a convent.
Now when you have a big anniversary like this you celebrate for several days. Day one started September 30th with pizza at Dino's and reminiscing. Day two on October 1st was celebrated with a lovely luncheon at Marriott on Higgins. There was the singing of the School Song, other songs written special for the day, and more reminiscing. Day three on October 2nd was celebrated with a luncheon at Res and a tour of the school. Everyone had fun pointing out their homerooms (today called seminar rooms) and more reminiscing.
There were many moving moments during the weekend, but those that touched everyone most deeply included:
- Singing the Res School Song together
- Remembering in prayer our 20 classmates who are celebrating in heaven
- Hearing classmates tell about the ways they have and continue to make a difference in the world through their families, their work and the many volunteer services so many are involved in
Yes, after so many years this class still really knows the words, the melody and sounds terrific!
Do you know any 1966 alumnae?
