Norrine Farr Bills ’41 and Laura Bills McDonald ’77

Connection

It’s been 70 years since Norrine Farr Bills ’41 graduated from Rollins College, making this honored guest the oldest attendee at this year’s Reunion. As she lunched on Mills Lawn with her daughter, Laura Bills McDonald ’77, Norrine glimpsed Knowles Chapel, the site of her 1943 marriage to her college sweetheart and fellow alum Doug Bills ’43. Her daughter chuckled as she shared about The Moo Club, a group dedicated to fattening up skinny ladies with afternoon allotments of cookies and milk.
