ST. MARYS — Memorial High School students were decked out in sequins, glitter, top hats and ties Saturday night for the Promenade in Memorial Park, where friends and family watched them walk the local version of the red carpet.
The students gave a nod to the theme “Fantasea” by giving the first catwalk opportunity to students in sea-themed costumes.
“It’s an opportunity for the community to come out and see the school and the students,” said Becky Macwhinney, of the Chamber of Commerce, who helped coordinate the event.
Mary M. Poppe, 89, of 1807 Kingsbury Drive in St. Marys, died at 3:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, 2013, at Lima Memorial Health System.
She was born on April 6, 1924, in St. Marys, to Charles and Sylvia (Grunden) Eberle.
Survivors include a daughter, Linda Sue (Robert Schumacher) Poppe of St. Marys; a brother, C. Albert (Arlene) Eberle of St. Marys; a sister, Patricia Burden of Lima; numerous nieces and nephews.
