Happy June Everyone

Congratulations to our 2014 Granite City High School
Summer is here, summer is here, let all the fun warm
weather activities begin.
All 1974 and 1975 graduates of Granite City High School
North still have time to register for your reunion, scroll
down for the information you need .  August will be here
before you know it.
We have a "flashback" class picture this month,
do you recognize anyone?  Are you in there?
We have a wonderful vintage article on the
"Melting Pot Basketball Quintet" from the Associated
Press.  Have you been following the upcoming filming
of the movie retelling the story of these wonderful

coming our way once filming gets underway.
"The Little Mermaid" and Hypnotist Brian Madrid
will be at the Alfresco Art Center this month!
Happy summer Granite City!
