The end of May, 1935 Excerpts

Wednesday May 29th, 1935
My graduation pictures will be ready Friday.  Tonight I signed up for Bay Path.  The secretarial course for two years.  Our cousins from Holyoke came for the evening.  I want to go to prom.

Class day tomorrow.  We didn’t take an umbrella to school and the rain caught us.  Itchy borrowed an umbrella from St. Francis and we took him under the arm.  There were 5 of us.  We went to the concert at the Trinity Church Community House.  It was beautiful, the church.  Teddy and Drobey came after us with the Doctor’s car.
