To those classmates who started from the very first, came in the middle or left in the middle, to the ones who made the final journey and graduated as the Class of 1964, we want you to know, we are all the history of the Class of 1964 and are embedded in the hearts and memories of each other. You will always be a part of the Class of 1964 and a Chase Kat. You are welcome to attend any Class Reunions and any All School Reunions that are scheduled. We urge you to get in contact with us if we have not found you yet! You are not forgotten and we would love to see you again!
If any of our St Mary's classmates have any addition information on grade school information, please pass it on to me. And if any of this information isn't completely accurate it is due to the lack of records with the only source of information being available through photographs.
