|Alums gather for lunch at the Sea Oaks Beach and Tennis Club|
after First Friday Mass in Vero Beach, Florida
For the second year in a row, I traveled to Vero Beach, Florida to attend the First Friday Mass and Lunch on March 1st with the Sacred Heart Alums who are members of the Treasure Coast AASH. The group meets the first Friday of every month from December through April for Noon Mass at Holy Cross Catholic Church. Afterwards a luncheon is usually hosted at a different club in the area. This is a great way to meet up with the locals and snowbirds alike.
Patricia Leary Dowling, NC'56 was the sponsor for our no host lunch at the Sea Oaks Beach and Tennis Club. A scrumptious lunch was served and during dessert Mariclare Nicholson Beggy, MC'62, President of the Treasure Coast AASH made general announcements and then introduced me. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces especially my Sacred Heart friends from Chicago. I wish to thank Mary Fran Peez Griffin, GP '44 who so graciously chauffeured me to the luncheon. It was a spectacular day and so meaningful to spend it with fellow alumnae.
