According to Beth Cummings, " Ken Hollwedel lived on Kingfisher Lane, diagonally across from the late Neal Manley (172 Kingfisher). Ken's dad was in the Air Force stationed at Thule AFB in Greenland. When he finished his tour in Greenland he had 18 years in and was allowed to choose his last duty station for his remaining two years. He chose Hawaii and Ken never got to the seventh grade in Levittown and didn't attend Division Avenue High School with us."

Seven years later, at least 11 members of this group were in Division Avenue High School's first graduating class. Help is needed to identify the six students marked with an x.

I went to kindergarden in 1952-1953. If I recall I had Miss Barbie for a teacher.
