Christine Fuller (Bell) adds: There is a story as to why the three ladies at the front are separate from the rest. They were meeting up for the first time since they were classmates at EHS more than 50 years ago. Gwen has lived in British Columbia, Canada for many years and was here visiting for a few weeks; her daughter Patricia Fisher, who also lives in BC, had joined us at a previous Reunion and was able to meet up with her former EHS friends.
