Church Street Assembly 1962
Third from left is Mark Engengro, Karen Bimonte is the pea, Silvia Kutz might be wearing the rabbit ears. Alan Gertz is next to the onion. Marie Granata is in the middle without a vegetable. Jack McKee is next to the turnip in a bowtie. Two to the right is Rich Cusano, then Linda Weiss. Can you identify anybody else?
Church Street Assembly 1963
This photo is a little harder to make out. Carol Craig is second from the left. Three down from her looks like John Rubino, then Gerald Matteo and Mark Engengro. The next girl is Nancy Santillo. The girl in braids with her back to us is probably Bettina McKay. Linda Weiss is the last girl on the right.
Miss Danielson's class 1967-1968 Great photo of one of Miss Sigrid "Bulldog" Danielson's 7th grade history class. Miss Danielson retired after teaching our grade, and can you blame her? Classmates names are at the bottom of the photo.
Michael J. Whalen Junior High #1 Who knew back in 1967 that Michael Whalen sat on top of a toxic dump and that the soil was dangerously contaminated? Perhaps that explains a few things.
Michael J. Whalen Junior High #2
Tricky Dick or Curious George Who did you want for president in 1972?

- According to contributor Scott Robinson, "Billy Rae Madden was the man."
Circa 1970 article describing a explosion involving Frank DeStefano
The headline says "High School" but the article says "Junior High School." It seems more likely that it's high school since Frank was 16 at the time.
