    When did Apollo stop the week long moonlanding celebration? I remember as a kid that was the highlight of the summer.

    Hope I can make it home on August 1st for Wendy’s presentation on Miss Amy Snyder who was my 1st grade teacher. We started the year in the old elementary school before moving to the new school beside Owen’s Grove. My !st grade classroom in the old building is still standing. Looks like it has been converted to an apartment..

    I hope you can make it also! The building is now privately owned; not sure if it’s a single home or apartments. Thanks for your interest.
