We kicked off our 55th reunion with the brown bear buffet and campus Dance on Friday night. The next day, the men and women met separately for lunch. About fifteen women dined at the Faculty Club, while eighteen men met at the Hope Club. We came back together for an elegant dinner later that night at the University Club. Some of our group of forty-eight continued the evening at the pops concert.

Sunday's highlights included brunch and a trolley ride through the city, which gave us a chance to see all the changes in Providence. On Monday a small group of us marched in the Commencement parade, along with Joan Fitzgerald Golrick's grandson, who graduated with the class of 2002. Elizabeth "Betty" Socha and I were the class marshals. See you in 2007 for our 60th.
