Dear Marymount Family,

We are happy to report that many of you have responded to either the e-mail or the postcard to update your information for the Marymount alumnae directory. If you haven't, please be sure to contact Harris Connect at 1-800-736-7785 as soon as possible. The upcoming directory is a great way of staying in touch with each other.
