FormerManual principal Hanno Becker talks to Kids of the 1960's

Who are the Manual Kids of the 1950's & 1960's? We are a group of Emmerich Manual High School alumni from the 1950's & 1960's interested in renewing old friendships, sharing memories, and assisting Manual High School from time to time. Each year 300 or 400 Manual alums have a Christmas luncheon which this year will be at Primo's south. Everyone who attended Manual H.S. at anytime in the 1950's and 1960's and their guests, are welcome! Previously this luncheon was for anyone who attended Manual in the 1950's (Classes of 1950 through 1963). By popular demand a few years ago, we included all classes from the 1960's ... and now we have added kids who attended in the 1960's which include classes of 1970, 1971 & 1972 ... and are glad we did. What a great group of Manualites.

Luncheon Program for Dec. 17th:

*Lots of time to chat with old friends*

Principal will give brief update on the school activities & progress.

*The ManualAires will sing songs of Christmas. Choir Director Jake Gadomski has the songs laid out and the kids will practice a month in advance to bring joyful music to our alumni. Be ready to sing Onward Manual.
