109th Anniversary Reunion Highlights


"Pressing the flesh" was mostly done orderly and the food was incredible

Many will remember that first grade teacher Mrs. Cooney also was a newspaper reporter for a number of years. One of her favorite lines was, “A good time was had by all.” No doubt she would have used it to describe the Chester High School Alumni reception and meeting this year. Attendees again had high praise for the location and arrangements… noting that while it gets a little cramped at times being back in Chester for the day is “the way to go.” Our thanks again go to the Chester Foundation for hosting this event and providing incredible food and accomodations. We’ll be posting some additional information and photos soon…

Card Shower?

Great reunion Saturday… will be posting some details and photos soon. One quick item to share, thanks to Fay Piergiovanni. Former home economics teacher Marion Tossavainen will celebrate her 96 birthday on June 29th! She’s at the Governors Center, 66 Broad Street, Westfield MA 01085–we could send her a shower of cards!
