The Prophecy….

This is the best I could do, reading from an old original copy. If you have a copy and can send me the corrections, I will be happy to make them!

PROPHECY FOR FNHS CLASS OF 1967

Through four years of high school we have watched each other grow up physically, mentally and psychologically.  Many prominent people have said of us that our class has great destiny, if only we accept the challenges.  We have found that we can’t just have individual talents, which must be developed, but collectively our potential is enormous.  Never before has a class been able to work so well for common goals.  With all this in mind, we can truly see what will become of each of us and of the great town we wish to make our own.

In five years Framingham will become a city to be governed by it’s first mayor, one of the most industrious and hardworking members of our class, Karen Barnum, a charming and talented politician.  She will choose as her council Kathy Berry, Wendy Smith, Frank Bailey, Virginia Bowen, Kris Robinson, and the prom date that lasted, Joe Ferro.

Employed by the various departments of the town will be many of our classmates.  Framingham will have an absolutely unique sewer system.  Flowing beneath Framingham’s grounds are pipes of running alcohol.

Just think you will be able to turn on running Canadian Club or have Vodka clean your dishes and clothes.  This will all be due to the genius of all those in charge of the Public Works Department, Kenneth Brown, Richard Moscaritollo, Dennis Lajoie, and Edward Montague.

For decades Framingham Parks have provided athletic enjoyment to its citizens.  With the Mancini and Ramsey team as heads of the Park Department, we now have enlarged facilities for all kinds of parking for both day and night time.

The Recreation Department will have enlarged facilities for physical fitness and body development headed by Betty Gumbert and Isabella Zankowski.

The Sanitation Department, although somewhat irregular in its service, is doing an excellent job to dispose of Framingham’s garbage and trash.  The shining faces of Doug Rockwell, Bruce Sturgeon, and Paul Sweeney are often seen in our local garbage trucks.

The Dog Department also doubles as a jail, when necessity arises.  Robert Dagg, Janet McNaught, Mike Reardon, and Gerald Waitkun are doing a fine job.

Framingham Liquor Stores are thriving these days since Geoffrey Smith took over as local manager.  Posted on every package store one can read the words:  “IF you’re under 21, don’t sweat it.”
