PROVO CENTENNIAL, 1949

Fourth Grade, Joaquin School

Were you there? Do you recognize anyone? I remember that we all dressed up as Pioneers and Indians for the day and had this group picture taken in the library. I don't remember anything else about the day except that I had forgotten to dress up so I ran home at lunch and found an apron and a shawl to put on. I've identified the faces I recognize. Please help me fill in the blanks, and share any memories you have about the occassion. ~Venita
