175th Anniversary Gala
Thank you to everyone for a spectacular 175th anniversary celebration!
The Saint Mary's School 175th Anniversary Gala was a huge success. From the elegant decor to the fabulous music, the delicious food, and the fellowship of the extended Saint Mary's community - it was indeed a night to remember.
A big thank you and congratulations to our gala chairs Laura Norris Raynor '69HS '71C, Joan Comer Johnston '87C, honorary chair Blanche Robertson Bacon '53HS '55C, our committee leaders, and volunteers for all the many hours of hard work and planning. Your efforts and dedication ensured the event was a success and a memorable occasion for everyone.
Thank you, too, to the Saint Mary's School community for coming together in support of this celebration marking such an important milestone in the life of the school. We could not have done it without you.
