Our Lady of the Angels School Fire, December 1, 1958
by
Jim Gibbons, Historian 
 
On December 1, 1958, 92 children and 3 nuns perished in the school fire.  
 Susan Parker, from Marengo-Union Library said,
"Gibbons' presentations are riveting.  
He gives you the idea that you were a witness, that you were there.
 You get the feeling of urgency that everyone at the scene must have felt." 
 
Everyone is welcome/refreshments will be served
