Hello Dear Reader,
Grandma (Mary Hall) Carter participated in some extracurricular activities in high school although she was restrained somewhat by having to ride the school bus back to Lake Shore each afternoon. She played basketball in 1936-37, baseball in 1937, and sewed opera costumes for an opera that was put on that same year.

Her cousin, Lila, was the lead singer in the school opera in 1938. Mary could never have done anything like that. Besides not being a great singer she got embarrassed too easily. She probably got that from her dad (Laning). He really didn’t like to see his children perform in public—their performances embarrassed him.
