The Memorial Day flags were out at Holy Cross Cemetery for our SMCGS field trip May 23rd. We had a very informative tour by Monica Williams, the Director of Cemeteries for the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Among the residents we visited were Joseph Alioto, Joe DiMaggio, and Bank of America Founder A.P. Giannini. We also saw a red tailed hawk with a juvenile hawk among the pine trees. Monica gave us some history of the cemetery, and talked about the removals from Calvary in San Francisco. We stopped to give our regards to Maggie’s g.g.grandma and some other friends. It was a very worthwhile and interesting trip in spite of the somewhat chilly weather. Photos courtesy of Dennis Maness and his long-range camera!
