The Four Coins - For the Hometown.

To my knowledge, the only other time our Four Coins formally performed in Canonsburg, was back in the late 1950's. This indelible performance found them on-stage in the auditorium next to Canonsburg High School. As you may remember, the singing group was then known as "The Four Keys".

A recent email from Jeanne Mantalis indicated:: "The Four Coin's next gig is October 11, 2008 in Aliquippa, Pa for a Greek convention. We're not sure what the holidays may present. Thereafter, the Coins will be appearing at the Palace Theater in Greensburg, Pa March 6, 2009 with Bo Wagner, a duplicate of the CMHS show. Also, in April 2009 at several locations in the Pocono's."

Shirley Goodnight Leasure - CHS Classmate 1959 Deceased

I regret to inform that in talking today to Everet Leasure(Husband) residing in Parkersburg WV, that unfortunately Shirley Goodnight Leasure had passed away about four years ago from breast cancer.

Sorrowfully, I expressed our condolences to him and family.
The clock of life is wound but once
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.
Now is the only time you own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in time.
For the clock may soon be still.
