I’m always asking people, what do you remember about Albany Park? Roosevelt High School alum Michael Siegel recalls the Terminal theater, the Metro theater, the Alba theater then bowling alley, and the Deborah Boys Club. He shared a couple photos of his club, the Top Hats, taken at Deborah around 1959.
Roosevelt High School Class of 1961 Gives Back
Mike also mentioned the Roosevelt High School Class of 1961 Reunion. After expenses, they had raised enough donations to make at $2,000 gift to Roosevelt. One thousand was donated to the RHS Athletic Fund for various needs, and the other thousand dollars went towards the purchase of electronic readers and tablets for a new “quiet room” addition to the school library.
This is a class that sticks together. They’ve had 25th, 40th and 50th reunions. At their last reunion, they had a program book and a DVD of their times at school and previous reunions.
Nice going, Rough Riders.
