Christine Lacey, Roberta Ortiz y Pino, & Tina Miller ready to dance at Fiestas de Santa Fe with Dorothy Parks studio. Those costumes were so heavy and hot made of flannel and velvet. I remember during the performance that I was in between Bobby and Tina. We were all to do a high kick turn together. I did mine and the leg I was standing slipped and I crashed to the stage. I wanted to run off I was so embarrassed. Took a deep breath and managed to get in step with the other girls and finished the dance. I’m sure my face was red for the remainder of it though.

Mural in Loretto Academy high school hallway

Mural painted the the hallway of Loretto Academy High School. I understand it was maybe moved to a morada in Ojo Caliente,NM. If anyone has seen it please take pictures of it to see how it compares.  I’m glad they didn’t destroy it when they tore the school down to build the hotel. 

This is our 8 th grade graduation pictures at Loretto Academy on the famous spiral staircase. I wanted to make sure that it was preserved in history. I’ve also posted this on You Know Your Old School Santa Fe. I know it’s a repeat but hate to lose it.
