Re: First HHS Graduating Exerise at Fairview Heights

I entered the 1st Grade in 1954, Mrs. Spencer's class (with the RED door leading outside). If I remember correctly, the burgundy drapes in the auditorium had the year 1952 in gold on the center hanging drapery at the front of the auditorium. Does anyone remember that too?

Do you remember the name of the Alligator that lived around the Battleship in the 60's-70's and loved to eat popcorn the visitors threw overboard?

SOS(Save Our Battleship)The U.S.S. North Carolina Battleship in Wilmington, 1960-61

In 1960-61, a campaign called SOS (Save Our Ship) or Save the U.S.S. North Carolina Battleship rang throughout all 100 Counties. I was in Mrs. Holt's 7th grade. Each student received a coin holder to place dimes or nickels to contribute. This was similar to the March of Dimes booklet. Below are inte...

Re: 1960 Pugilistic Phillies Little League Baseball Team

How many of you recognize the picture above printed with the negative backwards.
Most of the gloves are on the players right arm, meaning one would throw the ball with their left hand.
The same is true for left handers. Can you identify the "left hander"?
