1962: Crownings, Communions, Christenings, Etc.

Oftentimes, May Crownings and First Communions were held on the same day at Saint Joseph Hill Academy.  I discovered this when scouring image after image of this hybrid event in carousel after carousel of slides that stretched across many years.  By the time I attended the school, First Communion was a weekend event on its own and the May Crowning was relegated to the afternoon of a school day.

Here we see my grandparents with my mother, my infant Aunt Susan, my Uncle Kevin and my Aunt Karen on the day of Susan's Christening. Cousins Dianne, Ricky and Lois are pictured with Susan below.

And then, of course, we have an AWESOME motherlode of Christmas toys...
