Your Douglass Website's Christmas Present to You!

Greetings, Douglass Alumni and Riverview Neighbors and Friends!

Remember Mr. Dobbins giving announcements on the loudspeaker? Remember the different ways we understood what we were taught? Remember Coach Deering's determination to win ball games? How about Mr. Gill's determination to Most of all, remember the family atmosphere we experienced at Douglass?

As we remember friendships and togetherness, let your mind wander back to a time when teachers cared about students.. when the school was a sanctuary.

We have a special Christmas present to all of you.

At "The Last Great Program At Douglass" on a special day, January 10, 2009 the audience viewed a very special DVD of interviews and pictures from some of our former Douglass teachers, with their remembrances of the school, some of them humorous, all of them memorable.

They taught us for so many years.. now, it's our time to teach them. We are grateful for our time with them.

The words from Mrs. Ellis, Mrs. Webb, Mrs. Charles, Miss Charles, Mrs. Welker, Miss Long and Coach and Mrs. Bob Deering, make the Walk Down Memory Lane's Douglass hallways unforgetable. Most of our teachers are gone now, but oh, how we remember them. We don't have much left, except our memories.

Our special present to you is that DVD, in the 3 parts below:

Click here for Part 1, "Memories of Douglass Teachers."
