The Meriden (Connecticut) High School Class of 1952 loves to get together. The reason for this event was to celebrate everyone's 80th birthday.

Carol Morrissey was Tomie's dancing partner. She wasn't in Tomie's high school graduating class, but her late husband Bill Greiner, was in Tomie's class. Sue Greiner Keenan is Carol and Bill's daughter.

Patty Clark and Jeannie Houdlette have made appearances in Tomie's books.

Alice VanLeuvan Hekster traveled from Holland.

An Afternoon of Storytelling and Laughter

After visiting the Wolffs in Bantam, Connecticut, on Saturday, Tomie visited his friends at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut. Pictured above are some of the nuns who sat with Tomie, and chatted, laughed and told stories for three hours. (Mother Praxedes is the niece of Mother Placid, Tomie's dear dear friend, who died a year or so ago.)

Tomie was able to see the restored creche before leaving the Abbey's grounds.
