Falcon Fun Facts

Roth's School Colors were Purple and White; and the Mascot or Symbol was the Falcon. Here's some trivia for all Falcon Alumni:

Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple has been used to symbolize royalty. Purple is the color of purpose, royalty and spirituality: and is associated with nobility.

Here's some interesting facts and information about the symbolic, meaning of the color Purple
-Purple is always associated with Royalty
-Purple togas were worn by the all powerful Roman Emperors
-Purple also has a Christian / Biblical meaning and is the liturgical color for the seasons of Lent and Advent
-Only the most expensive dyes were used to produce the color purple, it therefore became symbolic with wealth and power
-People who were allowed to wear the color purple during the Elizabethan era, as decreed by the English Sumptuary Laws, were the Queen, Queen's mother, children, and sisters, and aunts. The King, King's mother, children, brethren, and uncles

Culture of White:
In most Western countries white is the color for brides. White is often associated with hospitals, especially doctors, nurses, and dentists. Some cultures viewed white as the color of royalty or of dieties. Angels are typically depicted as wearing white. In early Westerns the good guy wore white while the bad guy wore black.

Falcon Fun Facts
1. Falcons perform vertical dives called "stoops" in which they snatch their prey out of mid-air. During the stoop they can reach speeds or more than 175 mph (282 km/hr) making them the fastest bird in the world.
2. Peregrine falcons are monogamous. They also return to the same nesting site each year. Some sites have been used for centuries by multiple generations.
3. For more than a thousand years, the peregrine falcon has been one of the most prized birds in the sport of falconry.
5. The term falcon derives from the Latin falco meaning 'sickle'. This references the curved beak and talons of these birds.
6. The name peregrine derives from the Latin peregrinus meaning 'pilgrim', 'wanderer', or 'foreigner'.

Falcon
The falcon or hawk signifies someone who is hot or eager in the pursuit of an object much desired. It is frequently found in the coats of arms of nobility from the time when the falcon played an important social role in the sport of kings and nobles. It is found as a heraldic bearing as early as the reign of King Edward II of England. The falcon is frequently found ‘belled,’ with bells on one or both of its legs. It may also be hooded, which is how falcons were carried on the wrist until flown. The falcon is indistinguishable, in heraldry, from the sparrow-hawk, goshawk, kite, or merlin, though they may be described that way in blazon. The falcon’s head is a common symbol on a crest; it can also be found, though, preying on something, which is termed trussing, rising or close.

The Falcon throughout history, culture and myth, Falcons symbolize superiority, spirit, light, freedom and aspiration. The Falcon is a an emblem for success, victory and rising above a situation.

HOOVER SKATE ARENA

We are asking for any pictures of the Hoover Skate Arena. Please email to RalphEStokes@charter.net

HOOVER SKATE ARENA
Dayton, Ohio
MORE THAN HALF A CENTURY OF SUCCESS

When it comes to the history of Black owned skating rinks, it appears there are no records to show just what rink can claim to be the first. In Ohio, however, the owners of Hoover Skate Arena are quite confident that their rink deserves that honored title.

Hoover opened in the post World War II era and in the same year that Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier to become the first Black to play Major League Baseball. That year, 1947, was when Estella and Mark Mayo opened a 7500 square foot facility, on McCall Street, in the city of Dayton.

The rink was an instant success because back then there were not many social outlets and once word of the rink spread, people would come from miles away to enjoy themselves at Hoover.

The rink has always served a predominantly Black clientele because of the large population in Dayton and surrounding cities like Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis and because they are near two historically Black colleges.

That original rink remained open until 1964 when it was moved to a new location on Hoover Avenue. This move was also the transition of rink management to the Mayo’s daughter Juanita Barnett, her husband, George and nephew Harry Mayo Jr. Today the rink remains a family operation run by Juanita and Harry.
