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?
I hope so. How about something from New York?
He's to young to have graduated from St. Mary's. IT closed when Powers opened. (St. Mary's class of 55)
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?
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.
NO. It was Fr. Soest.
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.
I wasn't a jock, but yes basketball was played in the gym. The graduating class was only 35.
We just added a link to this on our Slow shirts FB page. Thanks for the link Gordon! So cool to see.http://www.facebook.com/slowshirts
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.
I was an alter boy with Javi at St. Mike's.
Thanks for commenting.

Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
