My sister was there around that time...the only story I remember her telling was scrubbing the floors with tooth brushes.

ROFLOL oh yes...I preferred to have bathroom scrub duty and yes we had to use old toothbrushes. We also had to hand buff those red walkways in the convent but it was fun...one girl would pull another around on a blanket...sure shined them up.

I'll have to ask my dad when she actually was teaching there.

Hi Roosevelt,
Where did you happen to come across that miniature golf ad? I've been looking for stuff on those courses forever. I have a web site for one of them here: Alpine Valley Miniature Golf Course. Mind if I use the pic on my site?

No problem, came from a 1969 Phoenix North Stake Directory, that's a Mormon church.

For some strange reason, I still remember WH5-4719 as my family's phone number from my early days. It was assigned to Paradise Valley/Scottsdale. I mention that because of a previous post of the prefixes indicating where the number was assigned.

This will be a shot in the dark...
Does anyone recollect a racetrack (?), that was located on E. McDowell Road in Scottsdale, on land on the east side of what is now the greenbelt of the Indian Bend Wash.
One could rent a go-cart and have at it on an oval eight track.
