The Mildred Strang Middle School graduation was two weeks ago today! Hard to believe these kids are getting ready for high school. There were lots of smiles at the eighth grade dance at Colonial Terrace . These graduates learned how to do the Cotton Eye Joe in first or second grade and proved they still know it in 2011. The moms had as much fun as the kids! The event was spear headed by Tony Galetti and Barbara Nuccio and an army of moms helped with the planning, preparation and the party. Dorothy Forcina and Cindy Corrigan have been friends since their daughters, Nicole Forcina and Katie Corrigan were in pre-school. They were happy to be on the committee and see their daughters dance the night away.
