I remember the rose ceremony! I carried my cousin, Denise Capranica's rose.

I graduated from UA in 1966 - our class was the first one to go through from 7th grade to senior year in the school on Plumtrees Rd. I will always remember the great education I got there, and all the friends I made. Some of my UA classmates and I went on to CNR, and we stayed close even there.

I was so sorry to hear of the closing of Ursuline Academy in Springfield, MA.
I have two younger sisters, Susan and Jean, and all three of us graduated from Ursuline. I graduated with the class of '62 and I do remember the rose ceremony, and also the lovely sight of the graduation ceremony with all of the girls in those beautiful long white dresses and carrying roses.

I have fond memories of the beautiful old school and my time there. The school was a beautiful and, I imagine historic home. Does anyone know if it still exists? I hope it is on the registry of historic homes.

Does anyone know of a way to get a 1962 yearbook - mine was lost in moving in the early seventies and I would love to have another to see the pictures and the memories!

Like Leahk, I graduated in 1978 and share the same fond memories mentioned in her post. I still have my merit button! I will always treasure the many wonderful memories I have of those years. It breaks my heart that the doors have closed.
Graduated in '78........ sad to see it gone
