This 1962 photo propels us back to those crisp fall Saturday afternoons of our high school days and the excitement of watching the Blue Dragons play football. Perhaps you can hear echoes of coach Jerry Jewell screaming instructions to his players.
This priceless picture was provided by Pat Stanley Share, class of 1962, who wrote: "From left to right it's Janet Trama, face covered unknown but am guessing Susan Kilbride, Linda Kaiser, me, unknown and Suzanne Propper." The photo was taken in the Division Avenue High School parking lot.
Isn't that convertible a beauty? The girls are sitting on one owned by Gordon Parker, father of quarterback Gary Parker '62. According to Gary, who lives in Georgia, the car was a white 1960 Pontiac Bonneville.
Marilyn Monsrud Frese '63 remembers it well. "Gary's dad used to let him drive it for our special dates such as proms. It was also used in homecoming parades."
We thought those days would never end.
