The "Lively Fively"

From Janice (Miller) Hoffmann, Class of 1970

Imagine a naive, wholesome musical group that thought they were the cutting edge.  We gals wore white long-sleeved, oxford cloth, button-down shirts with jumpers we made for the occasion: navy blue with a white tattersall pattern.  We thought we were so sophisticated.  We were the "Lively Fively" and members included your current (esteemed) president, Dr. Jo Young ’69 Switzer, Beverly Sayers ’69 Eikenberry, Roger Cox ’68, Al Retzman ’69, and me, Janice Hoffmann. The Oaks coffee house was new and when we performed there on Friday or Saturday night, it might as well have been New York or Hollywood!
