As sister jubilarians of 2018 arrived at Villa Notre Dame the first days of May to join with each other in a weekend of celebration, they were greeted by the smiles and open hearts and arms. Everywhere they turned they encountered an atmosphere of festivity and joy displayed by creative bulletin board displays, colorful table decorations and exquisite floral arrangements.
