CFFs (Caruth Friends Forever)
The Caruth School of Dental Hygiene Class of 1968 has reunited again-42 years after graduation.
This reunion was prompted by Suzanne Davis '68. An invitation to a wedding in Dallas prompted her to travel to Texas from her home in Alaska, and this provided the perfect opportunity to gather together her classmates. Twelve of the 34 remaining class members gathered on May 19, just one day shy of the official anniversary date of their graduation in 1968.
The friends began their reunion events at the Swiss Avenue home of a fellow alumna, where classmates reminisced about riding bicycles up and down the avenue during their time together in school. Lunch, a tour of the Dallas Arboretum and dinner in Richardson at the home of Suzanne Davis' relatives rounded out the day's events.
This was the ninth reunion for the Caruth Friends Forever from the Class of 1968. They enjoyed catching up on one another's personal lives and professional experiences. Twelve class members still practice dental hygiene. Two classmates live outside the U.S.: one in Australia and another in Costa Rica. Yet the classmates stay in close contact via e-mail and phone calls.
Shocking news was shared less than three weeks after the reunion when class members learned that their classmate, Cynthia Carson, passed away suddenly of natural causes. Scholarship contributions in her memory may be made to the Ruth Riley Swords, D.D.S., Endowed Scholarship Fund for Dental Hygiene Students (click here for additional information).
Future plans are in place for a destination reunion.
