In a news paper article titled, "Large Crowd at Dedication" (Oklahoman of June 18, pg. 5) it was noted Bishop Meerchaert would lead the ceremonies with Dennis T. Flynn of Oklahoma speaking.
The celebration featured food and drink booths (to raise funds for the building project), a baseball game and finally Troop 32 of the Boy Scouts presented the play, "Huckleberry Finn."
The addition was for the use of dormitories and rooms for the faculty of the school. The school in June was already reporting enrollments of 200 for the September term. It was noted, that while the orphanage was operated by the Catholic Church, about half of the orphans were Protestant.
The director of the Orphanage was P.P. Schaeffer.
