Annual Reunion Day of the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Alumni Association included two members of the class of 1918, Mrs. Mary Flynn Dwyer (right) and Mrs. Hazel Ward Hochrein. The reunion included a Mass and a banquet at the Sheraton Ann Arbor Motor Inn.
FISHing Buddies: The Rev. Donald Allen, Episcopal Chaplain to the Medical Community, introduces a FISH volunteer, Mrs. James M. Plumer (left) to Mrs. Waldo Carlson of Iron Mountain and her hospitalized son, Toby. Toby's family happens to be staying with relatives in town, but it's people like them that FISh are around to help. FISH volunteers, in one capacity, offer rooms to families of out-of-town patients when they are in Ann Arbor to visit their sick relatives. In a related capacity, too, FISH are friends for the patients (like Toby), whose families cannot be with them. Much of the FISHes' work is channeled to them by the Rev. Mr. Allen.
"OPEN AIR" BARBER SHOP: It's no trouble getting to a chair at the Dascola Barber Shop at 507 E. Liberty St. these days. The entire front is open. No door to enter, no glass or structural wall to deter the customer. It won't last, however. It's only the first step in a $2,500 front remodeling program. A new glass exterior is being constructed by the Huron Valley Glass Co. of Ypsilanti.
Interior Remodeled: This interior view of Dascola Barbers of 615 E. Liberty St. shows new barbering chairs and bar which were recently installed, completing a two-year modernization program that got under way in 1955 when a new store front was added.
