1. Belden Village Mall was the "cool" place to hang out in middle school, even though all you did was walk around and look at things you couldn't buy.

2. The day the Hoover Company shut down was a very sad day. It is hard to see a once vibrant factory with holes in the windows.

3. Half the city lives at El Rincon.

If you haven't eaten there before, are you even from North Canton?

4. When you see Mr. Gallina in the hallway giving air high fives, your inner child emerges.

You couldn't be more excited.

5. If you wanted to be popular in middle school, you were on the volleyball team.

6. During football games, seniors ruled the student section.

If you were a freshman trying to get up front, well, it was nice knowing you.

7. The Roller Skating Rink on Whipple Avenue was the Friday night hang out location for all wannabe skaters and punks in middle school.

If you went here, you probably thought you were the toughest kid around.

8. Turkey Gravy Day is the best day of the year.

As soon as the lunch bell rings, you push and elbow shove anyone who tries to get in your way.

9. The Jaycee Fair is the place for middle and high school girls to dress extremely inappropriately in public.

If you went here in middle school, you probably tried to act like you were 20 for the night.

10. You make fun of the "Viking Strong" slogan.


However, no matter how much we make fun of it, it has real meaning. Our town has gone through some hardships, and we will always persevere and stay strong.
