Good Old Town and School of Mine

February 22, 1937, Appleton Post-Crescent
The new Menasha high school was over a year away from opening after the disastrous fire of 1936 had claimed the old facility.  Nostalgia paired with hopes for the days to come led to a song for this new era.  The band director even worked in the Wisconsin state motto of "Forward" to let the listener know that we weren't satisfied with the past but were forging ahead towards a prosperous future.
