All-School Assembly - A Prelude to Halloween - 1967
The junior and senior glee club joined forces under the direction of Sister Louis Ann, music director, to present a Halloween Assembly for the faculty and student body. Folk songs were sung a'la hootenanny; noses were pinned on pumpkins by blindfolded faculty and student competitors; ol' clothes relays were run and won. The entire affair was informal and relaxed. Music was supplied by piano, guitars and drums. Songs that both glee clubs had practiced for weeks were finally heard.
This presentation by the glee club was the second this year. Under Sister's direction, our singers performed for St. Mary's parishioners old and new at our Centennial dinner October 2. The songs were "Processional" and "Far Away Places." The songs' high point of the program was the lovely "Bells of St. Mary's" which invited and received warm and tearful audience participation.
