Memorial Service planned for Bernie Walko

A memorial service has been scheduled for Bernie Walko and his wife at the end of the month. Both passed away within the past year. Their daughter, Anne, was a member of the graduating class of 1969. Mr Walko was as much a part of our high school lives as any student or teacher. The date of the service is Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in the chapel at Saint Anthony’s Cemetery on Hoyt Street in Larksville. If any local alumni can attend, it would be much appreciated by the Walko family. Thank you.
