Memories from Sally Booth

Ah Susan, You are discovering my past...All those ladies were friends of my mother. I really didn't "know" them, I knew their children. I remember that the Langlykkes lived on Evergreen or Prospect Ave. I think. There was a daughter who was in, I think Evie's daughter,(my cousin) Nancy Hance's class at Hartridge. Nancy was 2 years behind me. There was an older son, whose name I forget, (maybe Peter) who took me out once or twice. He was very tall and played the organ. The party that was discussed was the social event of the season. It was a deb party arranged by the Junior League for daughters at the club. I and Nancy Hance were two of the girls in white dresses. The social scene was quite different then. I think it was held every other year and only lasted a few years.


Dottie Sheble, who is mentioned, was one of my Mother's best friends. She may be still alive and living in Salisbury Ct. with one of her daughters. She'd be quite old now. She was younger than Mom. She is( was) little, very stylish, artistic and a lot of fun. Her husband, Dick, was very nice too.
You are having fun with your archives. I haven't thought of these people in a long time.
