We have our speaker for November 8th. She is Mary Schade and Mary not only lives in Arlington, she lives within walking distance of our Knights of Columbus HQ.
Mary is 71, participates in Senior Olympics and plays on not one but two soccer teams. This summer, she won her age group in the ‘Alcatraz Escape from the Rock’ swim, which was written up in the Sun Gazette. The water was cold and choppy but, she says, “I was pretty sure I would make it to shore.” That was 1-½ miles away, incidentally.
Growing up in Los Angeles, Mary attended Catholic girls’ high schools and was thus able to play in many sports, in spite of the pre-Title IX era. Mary’s daughters attended Yorktown here in Arlington.
