I attended Memorial and starred in "A Christmas Carol" in 1973 as Ebenezer Scrooge, which is funny because I was a girl. I guess the late great music teacher, Don Boudon, figured even the boys had high voices so it didn't matter if a girl played the lead. I'm probably the only cross dressing Scrooge in the history of modern theater.


As I am quite a bit younger than Tom, I was one class behind all 6 1/2 years and had Sue Buell in the 6th grade. As I remember one lunch time at Memorial was filmed for the McMinnville Story about 1954??

I only went 5 years at Memorial. Our baby boomer class was so large all district third graders spent that year @ the high school. At Memorial, I remember wide halls, large cafeteria with the greatest cooks, and the best gym in the district (as well as the teachers). The Davison brothers were my neighbors on Baker Creek Road and I too used the dirt road to school now known as Birch. Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog!
