From The Vault of Faith Davidson Asselin!

From the Vault of Faith Asselin:  Faith shared these items with the Reunion Committee at our meeting last Thursday night.  She came across them when looking for something else, naturally, and there they were!  She has graciously allowed me to borrow them to share here.  Thank you, Faith!

Do you remember these?  ;)  

Thank you, Faith!

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum Dept.: Mr. Bruce Gallemore!

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum Dept.:  I often play chess at the New London Library on Wednesday afternoons.  I happened to look up from my chess game there this afternoon to spot this guy walking past my table.  Although I haven't seen him in nearly fifty years, I recognized him immediately from the photo that he and Cass Young posted here a few weeks ago!   He just happened to be in town until tomorrow on some family business, and was picking up his daughter, who was in the library doing some family genealogy research. So I had the pleasure of making her acquaintance also. His wife and grand child were outside waiting in the car. What are the chances of this coincidence, folks?  

Bruce, it was great to see you and briefly chat again, and I look forward to seeing you soon at the Reunion.  Mr. Bruce Gallemore!

Mystery Man and Mystery Woman in the Vormbrock Vault Photos!

Mystery Man and Mystery Woman: Can you identify these two people? Both pics came from Janet Vormbrock Wrobel today. The first pic is one of our classmates, and she appears in the group pic taken at the pep rally. This photo appears in the 1967 Crosier (2nd pic), btw, and she is the only unidentified person in the pic. The gentleman in the third pic was a faculty member at some point during our 4 years at SBHS. Who are they?

This pic is a zoom of the pic below, focused on the Mystery Woman.

This photo appears in the 1967 Crosier, btw, and our Mystery Woman is the only unidentified person in the pic.  The others are Ron Capozza, David Hosmer, and Noreen Cicchetto.
Who is this guy?  ;)  

Spoiler Alert:  we ran this little Mystery in our Facebook page today, and both "Mystery' people were identified rather quickly.  Check the Facebook page to see who they are.

Pics from the Vormbrock Vault!

This morning's surprise came in the form of the following email from Marguerite Stoffel Glidden
"Hi Tom,
Last night Norm and I had dinner with Janet Vormbrock Wrobel her husband and she had these old pictures. I don't know if they would be any use to you but I thought I'd send them along just in case."  

Boom! :)

Some of these pics appeared in the Crosier, if memory serves, but others appeared new to me. Or my memory fails to serve in those cases! Regardless, they are a great find! Thank you, Marguerite and Janet! ;)

Mr. Roger Williams 
I was unable to find this guy in any of the yearbooks. I think he may have taught French, but I can't be sure. Any help in identifying is most welcome!
