September 1957- 65 Reunion in May 2023

Last May those of us September 1957’s who were able gathered for lunch at Van Dusen Gardens to officially celebrate our 65th anniversary. Several of our classmates sent their good wishes but were unable to come.

We were delighted to welcome “Mickey” (Jean Eleanor MacDonald) Evoy, who finally made it from Florida for her first ever Class Reunion. It was great fun catching up with her after 65 years! She had a long and interesting career in nursing as does her daughter.

Best, Arden Kidd
