Our own Ann Needle with singer-songwriter John Ford Coley at the Bull Run in Shirley. David and Karen Gray celebrate with their son Neil and a copy of The Stow Independent following commencement at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons on May 22nd. Neil, a 1997 graduate of Nashoba High School, earned his MD/PhD and plans to do his residency at Columbia Presbyterian. Alexandra Spear celebrates with her family after graduating from Bryn Mawr College with a degree in Political Science. Attending her “garden party” were John Yuricek Sr, Pat Davis, Chris & Laura Spear, John Yuricek Jr. and Marlo Yuricek. The rain caused the party to get moved indoors, but everyone still had a fabulous time.
