April 2, 1960 - Ground-breaking for St. Norbert's Memorial Union: The new union, which is slated for completion in time for the fall term of 1961, will be situated on the southwest corner of College Avenue and Second Street. It will be in the area immediately south of the Pennings Hall of Fine Arts, now used as a parking lot.

The Rev. D.M. Burke, O.Praem., college president, turned over the first shovelful of dirt. Also attending were William Servotte, chairman of the development program; the members of the Citizens Committee, Board of Governors and Alumni Council; the school's administration, faculty and students.

The union will be dedicated to the memory of the late Frank J. Sensenbrenner by the members of his family who provided the gift of $400,000 that put the union past the planning stage.

The family includes Mrs. James Bergstrom, Mrs. George Gilbert, Col. John S. Sensenbrenner, and J. Leslie Sensenbrenner, all of Neenah.
