Isn't she lovely? Thanks to Kathy, we have a treasure trove of early 1960's grammar and high school memorabilia. Kathy has carefully preserved many wonderful mementos from her years at Steinert Grammar School, and from her class of 1960 at HHS. As time permits, I will be digitizing many of the items in Kathy's collection including the 1960 presentation of Carousel, wherein Billy Bigelow as portrayed so ably by George Bolge, while the ever lovely Kay Salvatore provided the role of Julie Jordan. How well I remember my Aunt Louise Baird raving about the unusual musical talent of that class! Stay tuned, and many, many thanks, Kathy, you are a tribute to the Hornet bee hive!

To an emotional senior citizen like me, the quaint "dance book" that the girls in my generation took to the dance evokes memories of a custom which unfortunately has passed into extinction. Back in those innocent years, we didn't have to have a police presence in school, and our dances and sporting events went on without the fights, drugs, and other societal cancer which caused many schools to do away with programs which taught us the social graces. How sad! Thanks Kathy, for this treasure from the past. It will join an HHS '42 dance book which is in the library's HHS Folder.
THIS INTERESTING BIT OF HHS MEMORABILIA FROM THE CLASS OF 1960 COMES TO US FROM KATHY CSORGO ANNACCARATO, WHO HAS SAVED MANY WONDERFUL MEMENTOS FROM HER SCHOOL YEARS. I AM POSTING HER MATERIAL HERE AND ON MY LOCAL HISTORY SITE WWW.GLOVER320.BLOGSPOT.COM
