Flint Photos: On the Road with an Expatriate


St. Mary's graduate and former Eastsider Duane Gilles sports an official Flint Expatriates T-Shirt in front of the downtown Halo Burger. Oh, wait, I guess that's the Taj Mahal in the background.

  1. Is this going to be a trend... like those gnome pictures in that one movie? Or could that be a Lego model in the background?

  2. I hope so. How about something from New York?

  3. He's to young to have graduated from St. Mary's. IT closed when Powers opened. (St. Mary's class of 55)

  4. The high school closed, but K-8 didn't. We both graduated from 8th grade at St. Mary's in '79. Was Fr. Berkemier there in 55?

  5. From the amateur resident St. Mary's historian:
    Gordie, we graduated from 8th grade at St. Mary's in 1980 (remember???), and Father Berkemeier arrived at St. Mary's in 1961. Any more questions pertaining to the parish, e-mail me. I'll try and get you the answers...LOL! Duane's picture is GREAT, and your website is second to none! Keep up the good work.

  7. Ah, 1980 is was. How quickly we forget! Thanks for the info. One thing I have wondered is when the entire school shut down.

    And for the Wildcat Class of '55, did you play your high school basketball games in the gym? Still amazed at how small it was for 5th and 6th graders.

  8. I wasn't a jock, but yes basketball was played in the gym. The graduating class was only 35.

  10. Hey, did you guys know Javier Munoz? I'm not sure if he went to St. Mary's, but my mom (his sister) did. She's quite a bit older than he is, though. He graduated from Powers in '83, so I figured he was about your age.

  11. I was an alter boy with Javi at St. Mike's.
