                               We moved to Juniata in 1940 from
                 9-11-01     2nd St. between Brown and Fairmount.
                             I started Holy Innocents School in
UNITED WE STAND              Sept. 1941. I know where I was on
                             the “Day of Infamy”.
                               The priests at Holy Inn were: Father
    Juniata Park             Lynch (Pastor), Gallagher & Carroll.
                             Some of our Nuns were: Sisters Rose
  Civic Association          Cecilia, De LaSalle & Ferdinand.
            Contact the          Hunting Park Ave. was a dirt or
              Juniata        cinder road from “M” St. to “I” Street.
                Park         Bristol Street did not exist from “M”
                Civic        St. to “I” Street except perhaps as a
            Association      meandering dirt path. “K” St. (where
             by calling
           215-289-0390      I live now) was paved only as far as
            or e-mailing     Hunting Park Ave. “J” Street was
          juniataparkcivic   paved only as far as Lycoming. “L” St.
           was a cinder street in front of the old
                             school building and a meandering dirt
      Next Meeting           path from there to Cayuga St.
 Tuesday, March 9               There were three sports stadiums
                             in Juniata, not including “Lighthouse
     at 7:00 PM              Field”. The first was a soccer stadium
   at the Juniata Park       where the Semi-Pro “German-
    Boys & Girls Club        American” team played. This was
  “K” & Cayuga Streets       located where Gegnas Auto is now.
                             The second stadium was also a soccer
                             stadium located at what is now “Erie
                             Plaza” at “L” & Erie. The third stadium
                             is where Philadelphia’s Pro-Football                                                             Photo courtesy of, a project of the Philadelphia Department of Records
