During the 1966-67 school year the Portarama staff has tried to put out a yearbook that provides pleasant memories for everyone. All of us on the staff have worked diligently during the past year compiling what we hope is one of the best year- books yet. Even though it took much time and hard work, it is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable experiences one could have. A lot of people have helped to make this yearbook possible. It would be too hard to mention all of them, but the ones who contributed much of their time are Deb Bonsib, Jayne Darby, Deb Flaig, Pat Fincher, and the school photographers Scott Irmscher and John Hoff- man. Lisa Hamilton and Eric Hayden also contributed much to the staffs work. We hope you will enjoy your yearbook and it will always hold memories of your days as a Portage student.
