A Sixties MemoryPosted: July 4, 2009
Cleveland High School Concert Chorus 1967
We wore navy blue skirts or pants and white shirts with a red, white, and blue crepe paper banner stretched across our chests. Under the capable direction of Paul Jones, we traveled to other schools and presented a patriotic program. On this 4th of July, I am reminded of some of the words we sang in harmony:
“This is my country, land of my birth; this is my country, grandest on earth; I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold; for this is my country, to have and to hold!”
Happy Fourth, all!
