Back in the day, when Albion filled the bleachers...46 years ago it was SRO back when Albion was quite often the Twin Valley Champs...
Anna Ruth Ridley Armstrong look at this
I am sorry, but Albion Senior High was the same way, just 15 years ago....it wasn't a lifetime ago....time change, things change....please let's be positive.

One of the nice things about winter growing up in Albion. 1968-69-era photo. I don't know anyone in this photo. ... See MoreSee Less
Loved skating there
I think I recognize the kid front and center but am not completely sure.
I loved going skating. My feet would be frozen when I got home and that was painful.
Always love to go skating ....I might even be in the picture who know everyone would go skating .....
Walked down Elm Street to the rink with my skates on!
That is hard on the skates , isn't it, Vicky?
One of our favorite childhood activities. So fun!
This brings back so many GREAT memories!!
It's too bad the present generation can't experience this winter treasure. Unfortunately, the spring got sprung and keeps the water moving too much for it to freeze properly.
Thanks for posting.
best hot chocolate, and fire to warm the hard as ice mittens.....and warm the tummy
That's me and I posted this picture a long time ago
Thanks for letting us know! I must have liked the photo! Most of the ones from that era I have are still in black-in-white.
I think it's 68,69,or 70 --- somewhere right in there
That's where I met my first girlfriend! Sonia Prigun. (Now Sonia Dove)
spent many a day at the ice skating rink and night.
Many days and nights skating there. . .crack the whip was always fun but Joe never liked it.
Carried my skates to school occasionally , had them sharpened at Sharp's Hardware . I think Western Auto did it also Or maybe it was Gambles or both
My first ice skating rink. I was about five or six then.
Great memories skating!
That is you in front, Ted Zerbe?
My number one childhood memory.
Mine fav memory as well. I loved going in the cabin for hot chocolate and warming up by the fire.
I loved it also, coming here from Texas In 1956, I had never seen anything like it. I wrote my Grandmothers & told them I stood on frozen water, in a pond.
OK Facebook friends. Here's the next photo of the 1st grade class of Mrs. Kathryn Robinson at Harrington School in Albion. This is the 1966-67 school year, or Albion High School Class of 1978 members. She wrote the names by the pictures. If you can't read 'em, let me know and I'll type them out row-by-row. ... See MoreSee Less
I am so glad someone had the insight to write all our names. Some I remember others ?
Does Harrington School have copies of all the classes over the years? Do schools keep these?
There is no Harrington School anymore that is open, just a closed building. I don't know of such records being kept like that from so long ago.
I see my little brother, Doug Fraser, who grew up to be a fine hard working man. Wish I could see him more often.
My sweet cousin Tammy Albin is on top row!!!!!!
Do you have Crowell School 1st graders
Donna Robinette, Carmen Robinette Adkins
Wow I love this. Thanks for tagging me Terry.
Omg I love this picture. I look at the school pictures all the time hoping to find my kindergarten picture....
Lot's of nostalgia about Albion during the "boom" years of the 1950s and 1960s.
Donna Robinette I didn't know you all went to Harrington.
Yes I think only two years
I like seeing the picture of Mr. Reiman. He was such a nice principal! I was afraid of Mrs. Caldwell when I went to North School. I'm sure she was a nice woman, but I was a wimpy kid.
Now it is 2017 and Harrington is open again, but it is owned by Marshall. I'm impressed with what they are doing.
