Boston regional alumnae leaders Elizabeth O'Connor-Bartlett '96, Marissa Holland '01, Meaghan O'Rourke '03 and Elizabeth Hennigan '05 played host to Boston area alumnae on April 4 at a brunch held on Atlantic Avenue at the Mercantile Wharf Building. The graduates, many of whom had not known they were "neighbors" in the Boston area, enjoyed renewing friendships and discussing careers and family with old and new friends. Special thanks to Nancy O'Connor, Elizabeth's mother, for her delicious refreshments and to Joan Grady, Elizabeth's godmother, for the use of her beautiful condo with the picture postcard views of Boston.
