Spring Break Saturday - Maypole Memory

Recently I was with mom at the hospital and we were looking through a Smithsonian magazine. The last page had photos of women from the 1930's going around a Maypole. It occured to me that mom may have Maypoled when she was a girl so I asked her about it. As it happens, she did Maypoling when she was in high school; she wore a white dress and flowers and a hat. This new piece of information gleaned at a time when mom can speak very little anymore excited me and I tore the back page from the magazine. This journal page honors my mother and this newly discovered expierience from her youth. In the picture on the journal page she is just graduating from 8th grade at Nazareth Academy in Rochester, NY. The picture was taken in 1933. She was 13 years old.
