Whan I was in 1st and 2nd grade, we lived at the foot of the bridge ramp in Speers. First grade I walked up over the hill to the Speers 1 room (yes I said 1 room school) but in Second grade walked across that bridge to attend school in Belle Vernon. Foggy mornings were very scary.

I have lived in Belle Vernon since 1987 and it's amazing how much it has changed just since then. I can remember when Wal-Mart was a drive in movie theatre.
