The Old Clear Lake School

1974 – Now the John Vitovich residence

I think this is a school graduation. I recognize quite a few, but not enough to catalogue.

My grandfather, Jens N. Fredricksen is on the porch leaning against the building. I am the kid dressed in a white sailor suit holding onto my uncle’s hand, Bill McCutcheon who is standing next to his wife Elsie and then my mother Dora Smith. Grandma Fredricksen is the woman with the white shawl over her head right below my grandma.

    Hmm are you sure this is our local Clear Lake? never heard there was a school. Where exactly is this located? I don’t see the Vitovich name listed in the phone book.
