Ceragioli, Comelli, Del Chiaro, Frizza-Wilson, Mungai, Van Orterendorp-Esposito -- That's quite a reunion committee lineup.
What did you have to do to get on the committee? Grow up on the West Side or up the Coast?
But the real reason I'm writing: What is Josephine Hart's maiden name? I posted the reunion committee picture to the Class of '54 web site, but I have no idea who Josephine Hart was? I could find only one Josephine in the '55 yearbook: Josephine Tinetti. Is it she? Another Italian?
Len: I don't know Josephine's maiden name. Perhaps someone on the committee could answer your query.
BTW: The four "boys" in the photo -
Ceragioli,Del Chiaro,Comelli and Mungai, are also graduates of Laurel School and were members of the award winning "Traffic Boys" Squad. Also, I do believe Muriel attended Kindergarten at Laurel. I'm sure if she would have continued on she would have been selected by the principal(Miss Edith King) for the equally prestigious Traffic Girls' Squad that monitored the traffic in the hallways.

Hey there "Zorch". Seems that the four guys in the photo are also from the Coast. Am I right? SS
Right you are Sam. Jim Ceragioli,
Marvin Del Chiaro, Jerry Mungai and I, are "Figli della Costa" (Sons of the Coast). Muriel was born and raised in Santa Cruz. As an aside, she married Stan Prolo the son of Eugene Prolo who owned the Prolo Chevrolet Company in Santa Cruz. In 1949, my father and mother bought a brand new Chevrolet from him. This was a major event in our family and is properly recorded in "La Nostra Costa. ivn0
