Golden olden days: Recollections of their golden days growing up in Niles were shared by members of Niles McKinley High School Class of 1943 during a luncheon Nov. 9 at Ciminero’s Banquet Centre in Niles. They learned who drove the first cars to school and who ran home for lunch each day. Also discussed were ways in which the world has changed since their school days. Class members have met three times a year for the past 17 years and have kept in touch through their class newsletter. Sharing the nostalgic walk down memory lane are, seated from left, Earlene Negro, Martha Jensen, Lena Fately, Evelyn Blatchford, Mable Pascarzi and Alice Helwig; and standing, Gary Naeser, Norma Jean Parke, Bill Brownlee, Dr. Douglas Evans, Ruth Naeser, Verna Brownlee, Georgia Jones, George John, Mary Ann Luich, Leona Miller, Filomena Donadio, Robert Stoll and Siromani Stoll.
