The 1909 West Pittston High School senior class included only 10 students. Members of the class included Geneva M. Bierly, Mary L. Coward, Lucy M. Hawk, Isabella A. Thomas, Mabel E. Leob, Marjorie C. LeGrand, Mabel W. Repp, Paul T. Bevan, George Dickey and Russell O. Mulkey in the classical course, and Paul D. Towner, from the modern course. Marjorie LeGrand hosted a class party at her home on Wyoming Avenue. According to the Pittston Gazette, ‘A feature was the duck pond. A large screen had been erected between the parlor and sitting room. As each guest dangled his line over the screen he was sure to make a catch.’ First row, from left, are Russell Mulkey, Mary Coward, Isabel Thomas, Mabel Loeb and Lucy Hawk. Second row: George Dickey, Mabel Repp, Paul Towner, Geneva Bierly and Paul Bevan. Class member Marjorie LeGrand is not pictured.
