Lucille Theriault

This happy Holyoke lass is Lucille Theriault of 470 Maple Street, who graduated from Perpetual Help in June and will enter Holyoke High in the fall as a sophomore. How’s she spending her vacation? Baby-sitting, she told a Morning Union cameraman, but she’s also doing plenty of swimming during these fine days. She thinks summer vacations are quite the thing, as you can see from her pleased smile. Click through on photo to see a larger version.
