Calling all alumni of the Slingerlands Elementary School - did you know the Union Avenue school building is 75 years old this year? It was built in 1941, replacing the old schoolhouse over on New Scotland Road. I am planning on telling the whole story in my September then and now for Our Town Bethlehem.
In the mean time - the group is planning a celebration on September 25 and is looking for alumni to share their stories. Yearbooks and snapshots would also be appreciated. I am told the info is pretty good from the late 1970s onward, but not so much for the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Visit this website and please help spread the word!
And, just for fun, here are some Slingerlands graduates from 1907.
