Around the Abbey

50 Years Old!

Yesterday, November 4th, we celebrated our Golden Jubilee.  We will be celebrating the year but yesterday was the actual day of founding.  We decided to celebrate just among ourselves.  We had a nice dinner and in the afternoon watched slides from over the last 50 years.  We had 3 of our foundresses with us, M. Gail and Srs. Mary Ann and Joan.
