As well as this 1950 Christmas program.

Football and probably basketball pep rallies were held here at various times.

High school graduations were held here.

High school assemblies were also held here. The Sophomores got to sit on folding chairs on the gym floor. Juniors in the fixed seating on one side of the gym floor and seniors in the fixerd seating on the opposite side of the gym floor.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
