SCC 50-year anniversary slated for weekend

The St. Croix Central 50-year anniversary is fast approaching.

After nearly a year of planning, the big weekend is here.

Prior to 1960 there were two separate schools -- one Hammond School, one Roberts School. But in 1960-61, the schools combined to create St. Croix Central.
