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!
