Today is again the day where we encourage you to print out a picture of Mary and take her with you  today, and then take a photo and  let us know what the two of you are up to!

Audrey Markarian ’07 brought Mary with her to Applewood (a member of The Loomis Communities), where she serves as the Dining Room Supervisor.

Erwin ’43, Felicia P. Barber ’58Gale S. McClung ’45, Virginia L. Senders ’44,  and  Nancy F. Esty ’56.

We also were sent a wonderful photo from  Trish Palmiere ’93.   Trish says “I took Mary out to my job site at the Longfellow Bridge in Boston today and even gave her a stylish hard hat to boot.  I’m one of the Project Managers for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation project – a multi-year renovation of this historic bridge.  I work specifically on the masonry restoration part of the project and very soon those towers you see will be removed for various repairs!”
