Good friends from St. Anthony’s Church assembled in Albany on Tuesday, May 1, 1962.
Right Rev. Monsignor Michael A. Bianco, pastor of the Schenectady parish, led the gathering. Men and women marched in Albany’s annual May Day parade.
People didn’t need a procession to get together during the early 1960s. Members of Schenectady’s IUE-CWA Local 301, International Union of Electronic Workers-Communications Workers of America, met to discuss progress and security in 1960. During the autumn of that year, young people from St. Adalbert’s School in Schenectady showed off new uniforms. In 1962, the gang from Sinkora’s market discussed their beefs on the job — plenty of parties and other gatherings started with a trip to the store.
