Last Hurrah4 Mini-Reunion

Chevy Chase/Bethesda


Location TBA

As of December, 2019, about ten people had responded to say they thought it was a good idea and would try to be there. Let's review this idea in August and see if it is a go.

Rosemary Who's Who

See a masked photo of a classmate. Then try to identify who it is. There are lots of hints to help you. Narrow it down by using the map ("where we live") on the home page.    Click here to play Rosemary Who's Who.  Results after we get a decent number of entries. If you'd like to be included, send in a masked and unmasked selfie to be in a future round. - June 2, 2020

Three Changes to the Class List (May 18, 2020)

Thanks to the sleuthing of Tim Wechsler, and the foresight of his parents to save everything related to Rosemary knowing that one day it might be of use to someone, we finally have the list of students for Mrs. Phillips' Class (grade 4, 1955-1956). With this list we were able to add two new names to our ranks:  Bertie Hla and Alan Lord.  We also have changed the spelling of Ann Seki's name, which had been spelled "Anne Saki." Due to several spelling mistakes on the new list, we can only hope that the latest version of Ann's name is correct.

After some initial research I am quite sure I have found Alan, along with an address and phone number. His dad was assistant rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Bethesda, I believe, among several other churches before and after Rosemary. Playing on a hunch, I think I might have found Bertie on FB.  Bertie's father was a diplomat from Burma. Ann has been a more difficult challenge, but it seems that she might have had a relative (Kunaiki Seki, two years behind us) on the gymnastics team at BCC. Following a different lead, Ann might have settled in Brazil, where according to my best reading of Portuguese, her 95 year old mother passed away recently.  If you remember Alan, Bertie, or anything about the Sekis and would to help with contacting them, please be in touch with Jim.

To see the names of the 19 boys and 14 girls in Mrs. Phillips' class according to the list sent out to parents), please scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on the link.

(Updated March 23, 2020)

Hoping that everyone is ok. If you like, check in on the Forum page to tell us how you are doing. It would be nice to hear from a lot of people.  

FYI: 34 classmates have been on the website in the last week. - 3/27/20

Request: Update on Our Trees

We would like to see how those cherry blossom trees are doing. If you happen to be near the school, could you take a picture and post it on the forum page. Many thanks. --8/19


Another Mini-Reunion (Last Hurrah2)

Friday, May 3, 2019

For those who could make it, we had a wonderful two-hour gathering for lunch on Friday, May 3 at LaFerme Restaurant, 7101 Brookville Road, Chevy Chase, at 1:00 p.m.  Click on Photo Gallery to see who was there.

Our Class Brick now adorns the Rosemary terrace.
Thanks to all who contributed!


If you happen to be near the school, why not drop by and see if you can find our brick?  And while you're there, check out the cherry blossom trees we planted in September.  The arborist said it might take a year for the blossoms to appear and the two trees bloom at different times of the year.  If you happen to notice any blossoms yet please take a photo for the website. - March 10, 2019

Latest numbers regarding our class (8/27/2018):

200 (approximately) students were ever in our class, for at least for one grade, K-6.

  • 180 of those 200 have been identified by name, sometimes by just a first name. We estimate that there are about 20 more classmates whose names we have not yet conjured up.  Some of the unidentified faces appear in the kindergarten and first grade photos in the yearbook and at the bottom of the page. Perhaps some of these faces belong to classmates who have already been identified. We don't know. Maybe you can help.
    • 29 of those 180 are known to be or presumed to be deceased
  • 151 are presumed to be living
    • 90 (60% of the known living classmates) are members of the website. In all, 92 have joined but 2 have since passed away.
    • 61 have yet to join. Of these
      • 31 classmates we have some information for, but
      • 30 classmates we have no information for whatsoever.
    • To see who those 61 are, please go to "More info on missing classmates"





NEW 9/19/2016: Search for classmates in the yearbook. We have put the yearbook photos on the website as one PDF, which you can search just like any other PDF file.  This is on a page restricted to classmates only. See the new link at the left, just below "photo gallery" and look through all of the photos with identifications as they were as of publication time, September 2, 2015.  If you can make any corrections or additions, please find the class photo at the bottom of this home page to make your edits.  Guesses are welcome! If we get enough participation in this effort, we will update the yearbook photos with all the corrections.

Our Yearbook cover by Carden Holland. The framed original was presented to the school at our 2015 reunion.



Read the Story in Washington Post about our reunion. See all the reunion photos in "Photo Gallery"


  1. Find everyone who was ever in our class and encourage them to join the website. 100 classmates by June, 2018.
  2. Find out who has passed on and post memorial information about them.
  3. Identify by name every face in all our photos.
  4. Get Mrs. Phillips' class photo -- the one photo we still don't have.
  5. Have a social event in the DC area each year.
  6. Keep this website growing and active through September of 2018, after which we will have to renew the license with classcreator. If we want to keep it free of advertisements, it will be expensive. Otherwise, the charge is nominal.

Progress as of October 4, 2018

  1. We have contact information for more than 100 classmates. Of the 93 that have joined the website, three have since passed away. The 100 members goal was not reached by June of 2018  but it still remains a goal.  We have not welcomed a new classmate for about a year. 
  2. To date we have confirmed the passings of 29 classmates. See "In Memory." Please write a comment if you are moved to do so.
  3. We have made a single PDF of all the yearbook class photos, with the identifications at the time of publication. This file will allow you to search for any classmate and blow up the photos to a larger size to make identification easier.  Corrections and additions can be entered by clicking on the appropriate class toward the bottom of the home page. 
  4. Still no progress in getting Mrs. Phillips' class photo. Go to Mrs. Phillips' photo page below to see who we think was in her class. Someone out there has this photo! Now we're beginning to think that for some reason, this photo was not distributed to students and it wasn't retaken.
  5. We had a reunion attended by 27 classmates and 14 spouses in September of 2015. There was a mini-reunion on Feb 24 and 25, 2017 attended by 12 classmates and 5 spouses. We had a micro-reunion on April 10, 2016.  Many people continue to have small get togethers as a result of being reunited through the website and reunions. Classmates have found other connections through this website, such as learning that they have mutual friends or interests. We had a 60th anniversary reunion in September of 2018. For all the details see the special page devoted to it.
  6. The website will continue but starting in the second week of October, 2018, we will go back to having advertisements because we do not have the money to pay for the ad-free option.   

ALL THE LINKS TO THE YEARBOOK PHOTOS ARE ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. Please find yourself in the photos and help us to make corrections and new identifications.

Did you know that:
  • You can post and read comments on the In Memory page?
  • You can post general comments on the Forum page?
  • We are still identifying classmates in the class photos and then posting corrections and additions to what was published in the yearbook? See the bottom of this page and the Revisions, Additions to Yearbook page.
  • You can send a message to any member on the website? "Send a private message to ___" It is not as quick as email but the message will be waiting for them in their message center.
  • There is useful information on the First Time Visitors page?




YEARBOOK CORRECTIONS: If you believe you have found a mistake in identifying a classmate in the yearbook, or have a new identification to make, please share this information by clicking on the appropriate class at the bottom of this page and writing your comment. Want to see which pages have changes from what was printed? Go to Revisions, Additions to Yearbook

Note: These photos and identifications come straight from the yearbook, which went to press in early September of 2015. Please feel free to enter comments, additions or revisions so that we may get things right, even after publication.  There remain about 75 faces to identify, mainly from the early grades.

PLEASE READ THIS ABOUT EMAILS FROM Class Creator: "We do not publish a list of email addresses in the system. If [members] want to contact someone, they may do so via the Message Center. They can ask directly for the person's email address and if that person wants to share, they will. Otherwise, the email address is kept private. I would NOT have members publish their email address openly on pages of the site. They are opening themselves up to be added to spam mail lists. That should be kept private." -- Scott Mastenbrook, Class Creator
