Bloomingdale High School memories

To the editor:

Recently a friend of mine sent me a picture of Bloomingdale High School as it looked when I attended 75 years ago. There seemed to be some discrepancy in the caption next to the picture. The last graduating class from BHS was in 1939, when 11 of us received our diplomas at a ceremony held in the local town hall. Our class consisted of four girls and 11 boys: Annie Hewitt (Converse) and Geraldine LaGoy (Joyce), the two surviving alumni, and Pauline Weston, Harriet Stephenson (Limbert), Charles Reick, Donald Hayes, Elmer Brewster, John Brewster, Jack Hewitt, Billy Hewitt and John Arthur Sprague. How fortunate we were to grow up in a small, friendly town nestled in beautiful Adirondack mountains.
