The Class of 1958 held a 60th Reunion Luncheon at Oakcrest in August. Class member Janet Plakatoris organized the event and was thrilled to have 16 of her classmates attend. One member even came from Florida!
The Class of 1973 held a luncheon recently at Vinny’s Restaurant, and it was wonderful to have 11 members attend, even our “token Man of the Hour,” Mike Friedman, came and updated everyone on the last 45 years.
Treasured Gifts to the Archives
I am always thrilled to receive additions to the archives from alumni who also know the importance of preserving our history. Mary Ellen Short, ’67, passed away last year and, as the former treasurer to the Alumni Association, let me say she saved EVERYTHING! Mary Ellen’s brother and I met one morning when he shared nine boxes of reports, photos, and more. The most unique items from Mary Ellen’s collection will be passed along to the Archives this fall.
I also received a book of news articles and photos that captures the history of the Church Home and Hospital Hospice. As many of you know, this was the first hospice in the State of Maryland. The book was put together by Mrs. Maureen Mason and was donated to the Archives by Becky Galloway. Thank you also to Lorraine Szetela Paine, ’73, for donating her “Pinkie” Cap to the Archives! It is in perfect condition.
