It’s so fun to be the keeper of my mom’s photos, because you come across gems like this one. This is the Junior Choir at my church, Ogdensburg United Methodist Church on Center Rd. (renamed the Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church some years ago), circa 1962. I was two years old at the time, so I’m not in here. My mom (on the left in the photo) was the organist for 50+ years.

I posted this on Facebook a while back, and between Marge Long and others, we were able to name just about everyone in the photo. But of course, can I find that photo now? No, it’s vanished off the face of Facebook.

Here’s who I *think is in the photo:

Front row, from left: John Hooper, Margaret Brown (Marge Long), Ginny Dohm (Coulter), and I’m not sure who the others are in that first row.

Middle row, from left: Jeff Fouch, Marc Hooper, Jimmy Cosgrove (?), Gloria Bartko, ?, ?, Carol Johnson (Lewis) (my sister), ?.

Back row, from left, Mary Johnson (my mom), Deni Hooper, ?, Gary Bartko, ?, Danny Fouch, Dean Johnson (my brother), Freddy Dohm (?), Steve Fouch, ?, ?.

And I’m not sure who the pastor was, back row right, at that time. Rev. Selleck?

Ok, Old Mission people, if you are in this photo or know the people who are, tell us in the comments below!
