This is the time of year for graduations! My niece will graduate 8th grade this week, so in honor of the event I’ve posted this photograph of her grandfather graduating 8th grade in 1948. James Pointkouski is in the second row from the top, first person on the left. Also in that row at seventh from the left is Rita Bergmeister, his first cousin. Happy Graduation to all graduates from the Class of 2009!
