~ A Daughter's Request ~
I received a request from a graduate's daughter on 12/21/10.
She is getting married this year and apparently is having her reception at the Lafayette Club. She writes, "My mom and dad both attended Roosevelt High School. It is somewhat of a family tradition.
My dad thought that it (reception) is in the same place you held your Senior Prom. Do you have any materials, pictures, or information about the Senior Proms of 1962 or 1963?
My mom is Judith Smith (1963) and my dad is Robert Weikle (1962). Thanks for your help! Go Teddies!"
Webmaster's note: I think it would be fun to gather pictures and interesting stories about Senior Prom, other dances, Homecoming,
Winter Sports Day, National Honor Society trip, May Day, past reunions: 5th, 10th, 16th, 20th, 25th, etc.
These could be used for the web site.
