Mary Jo Falco Johnson will never forget the day of her First Holy Communion. She recalls that day in May of 1964 was not just a celebration for her family, but for her neighbors on Vine Street as well. When a neighbor heard about the occasion, she ran inside then returned with a gift for Mary Jo -- a hassock. This was not the typical gift of a rosary or Bible, but to Mary Jo, it represented her neighbor's generosity. Those who lived along Vine Street remember a community that was ethnically diverse, but one that was united in the desire to help each other.
