Nonagenarian Walter Sharawara '42 Looks Forward to his 70th Class Reunion


Walter Sharawara '42 celebrated his 90th birthday this past April 4th. Walter firmly believes there is no higher calling than that of a pharmacist or "druggist" as he fondly refers to himself!

Walter owned and operated Buffum's Drugstore on Church Street in Whitinsville, Mass., for 42 years before his retirement in 1991. On every prescription label that went out from Buffum's was the phrase "The Store of Personal Service." Walter says hello to all his classmates and fellow graduates and he is looking forward to his 70th reunion celebration next year.
