SUPERB HOLIDAY CONCERT at ESR was attended by an "overflowing" crowd on Thursday, December 20, 1957 in the school auditorium. The concert included a Christmas pageant (above photograph) by Division IV students with background music provided by the school choir. The Mission Community Archives is interested in obtaining the names of the students in the photograph. If you or anyone you know can assist, please email the archivist, Val Billesberger.
