Sophie was a 1947 graduate of Springfield High School and is now a very active 92-year-old. She said, “What a blast this was! I got to meet old friends that I hadn’t seen in years, offspring of families that I have known, and members of the community that were fascinating to talk with. This get-together was a terrific blessing in my life. I want to thank my niece, Rose, once again.”
