Danielle Moore McNeely has contributed some names and corrections to the Picture of The Week. These included Barbara Haynes, Danielle herself, her husband David McNeely, Carlene Lester and corrected my spelling of Jerald Hill's name. My many thanks to her.
I am embarrassed to say that I mis-identified Carlene Lester's picture as that of my own wife, Jennelou.

Dental Certificates Pulling Candy and I D TAGSMy name is Cynthia Craven I was in the class of 1960, as I was reading that article in last months newsletter about growing up and living init brought many memories when ,he mentioned these things.
I remember that we had to have a dental certificate upon start of school each Fall, it meant going to the Dentist during the Summer for the check up, for me it meant a trip to Dr. Bergers torture chamber..
And I guess we all remember the pulling candy sales at our grammar schools, we sold tickets for pulling candy as a fund raiser, it came in vanilla,chocolate,strawberry and maybe another flavor or two but I don't remember.The man in his article said that all the area dentists loved the pulling candy because of all the sugar to promote cavaties.
I remember that during the 1940s and early 50s we were issued I D tags to wear with name, address and religious preferance stamped in a little metal tag, this was due to the threat of nuclear blast.and every Wednesday at noon the big siren on the school roof would sound for a minute or so.
And the paper drives, do you remember how we used to save papers and go around the neighborhoods collecting papers so our class might win the prize for the most papers collected. Thanks for allowing us to recall all these wonderful memories.Does anybody remember Dr. Bergers torture chamber in the 1940s ???

I caught up with one of my classmates this weekend at a family birthday party. We exchanged memories and he made me aware of your newsletter. He said most of our class is gone due to many in Vietnam war. I would be very interested to hear from any of my friends during those years if interested. My e-mail address is email@example.com. My sister, mother and I went to the area last summer and I was astonished at the changes. It was hard to find our old house as the streets have all been changed. Many bars on doors and windows and kinda creepy. We can still hold on to good memories, however with the good old days when we walked to school (safely) and met friends along the way.Thank you for keeping the memories going.Merry.God's richest blessings to you..Everyone Have a Happy New Year! from Larry Melvin and family.... formerly of Sylvin Hills now living infor 45 years.
