Wonderful memories! Peggy Mcintyre goes to Saxton Liberty High School in 9th grade and by the middle of that year, she met this handsome guy, Alex Hiquet. Alex was such a good athlete- played football, basketball, and baseball. I went to Saxton Liberty a year later. I think now about those wonderful times that I shared with them. Happy Hollow was the place to go after all the games-loved that juke box and the slow dances. There are many special stories that could be told of those years, however, not enough time to share them all. Alex was a very special guy- one of the really good ones!!! Betty McIntyre Jankauskas
