In last few photos see Granny friends whom we were so happy to meet up with. Third from last photo: Rosario and Regina stand behind speaker May Kay (in orange sleeveless top). Rosario is our friend from 2005 when we were filming our documentary. Second from bottom photo: Helen is on the board of a new homeless shelter project at Stanford. She and Granny Ruth C. have worked together on similar projects and posed for a pic of their reuniting. Last photo is, left to right, Granny Barbara B., Granny Liz on tuba, and Granny friend Chris Lund who led the crowd in two songs, Amazing Grace and We Shall Overcome.
Granny Fran will be back in California soon from the huge Climate March of over 300,000 people last week in NYC. She’s in this photo…She is on the far left. Hmmm…we are often told that is true of ALL Raging Grannies!
