WE REMINISCE .
As seniors we stand at the parting of the ways. New vistas lie beyond, but
our thoughts also turn back to the years which we have traversed. Some of
our past experiences and associations have become part of our very being.
Many of these we would like to forget whereas others we are loath to leave.
Many of the members of the class of 1953 hold fond memories of dear old
Porter School whose likeness adorns the opening page of this book. The
community has decided that her facilities no longer are equal to present
needs and the day of her passing has arrived. But by us her voice will
continue to be heard. Our memory goes hack to the poetry we learned in
her classrooms, t'Still sits the school-house by the road, a ragged beggar
sunningfl Our words fail us but old Porter speaks.
Ulf only l could speak too, l'd share my memories with you. How well
l remember when l was the only school serving this community! Finally,
the little white annex to my right housed the young children through grade
three, and my halls echoed with the noisy adolescent crowd. The playground
was at my back door. A little later this noisy crowd left for the new Boule-
vard Building and a quietness came over me, for now only elementary hoys
and girls were left. At this time some kind hearted teachers decided we
needed fixing up. A lawn was landscaped and planted.
But now l hear voices planning to move my small friends to another
location. The augur has spoken and thus it shall be.
All l will have left will be memories, memories of fine boys and girls
who grew up to be useful adults, a long line of fine citizensg many have
passed through my doors to enter all fields of service, business and profes-
sions. Their names come back to me in memory.
How l wish l could serve the youth of my community for years to come.
To you, my friends, do l offer myself. Wlonit you accept mefw
