Class of 1964 – Celebrated their Medicare Birthdays!

Posted by mcauleyhighschool on June 30, 2013

Some time ago I received this picture and my apologies for not posting till now!

In October of 2011 (I think), several members of the class of ’64 gathered at the home of Mary Overman in Sedona, AZ to celebrate their “Medicare Birthdays”.  They hiked in the mountains, ate wonderful meals, reminisced about their days at McAuley and caught up on each others’ lives since graduation.  Laughter and thanksgiving pervaded the atmosphere.

Pictured here are Paula Clark Resch, Elaine Jakubowski Coon, Carm Cooper, Marilyn Ryan Errington, Mert Schaal Joyce, Mary Overman and Sue Schemenauer Flax.
