A special recognition, and thank you,
to the members of our great class of '57,
who are still with us,
and served in the service ---

They include:

 

 

1. Bill Babcock

2. John Bankert

3. Ron Berry

4. Bruce Christopher

5. Dan Jeffers

6. Denny Salisbury

7. Ken Stoneburg

8. Burt Ward

 

 

*Previously, I had listed Bob Welch.

However, he was in the national guards,
and you are not considered a veteren in the National Guards
until you have served at least 20 years in it.
So he didn't think he deserved to be listed in this particular listing.

He gave credit, to all the others who do, however.

Here is what Bob wrote:

 

Thanks Joan... however I was only in the national guards (a toy soldier) , not the real military like my classmates!  One meeting a month and two weeks in summer. I served my 6 years between the two times my unit was activated. Joined first meeting when they returned from Fallsburg France (the Berlin crisis) and got out the last meeting before the unit was activated and sent to Clovis NM where pilots were retrained on new planes. 

 

Well, we also DO thank you for your service
for our country, in the National Guards, Bob!

***********

The note below, is from Pete -
He wrote a note to Bob, and our class,
in response to Bob's note above.

 

Bob
Don't underestimate your service, the Army did that for you. You
made yourself available for service for six years and history was good
during that time. The Reserve and the Guard get the minimum of everything until the military runs out of regular full time people
.
Then they want everything. I worked for the Army for as a civilian scientist for 38 years and believe me I was a much better scientist than I would have been as a soldier. I knew people from West Point officers to draftees and they all did the jobs that came to them. I am sure that you were as qualified as anyone else,

Thank You !!!!
Peter

Today, 11-11-21, is Veterans Day,
as well as the 100th anniversary
of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,
the landmark at Arlington National Cemetery,
honoring military personnel killed in action
who have never been identified.

KNOWN ONLY TO GOD

You may click on the thumbnail below,
to see a much larger view:

The origins of Veterans Day,
come from the end of World War I.
On Nov. 11, 1918,
an armistice
between the U.S.-led Allied nations,
and Germany, went into effect
on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. ..
It was then that the day - Nov. 11 -
was officially recognized as the date of the holiday.

"The Beginnings of Weedsport" --

In this article, Denny gives you information
of how and when the Erie Canal was formed,
and morphed as time went on.

Eventually, things changed,
and the canal was no longer used nor needed,due to the railroads,
and eventually the railroads succumbed the same fate as did the canal.

Denny sent us some photos which he recently took,
of the "Vietnam Veteran's Memorial".

This is the Cayuga County Vietnam Veterans Memorial
in Centerport Aqueduct Park
at 2462 Route 31
in the town of Brutus.

These are good up-to-date pictures,
however, on several of the photos,
the print is so tiny,
that is it very difficult and almost impossible
to read the print.

Remember Denny's "Burma Shave" article he wrote,
many years ago, and it was such a hit?

Well, a live program will be presented by Denny,
at the Geneva History Museum,
On Thursday, October 28th, at 7:00 PM.

READ THE INVITATION BELOW:

(You also may watch using "ZOOM")

You may click on the thumbnails below, to see larger views:

The Appeal of Burma-Shave Signs” Slated for October 28

 

A program on “The Appeal of Burma-Shave Signs” will be presented by the Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. at the Geneva History Museum, 543 S. Main Street. The program will be presented by Dennis Randall. The meeting is free and open to the public and masks will be required. A virtual option is also being offered.


Burma-Shave was originally a shaving liniment introduced in 1925. Sales were sparse, and the company sought to expand sales by introducing a product with wider appeal. The result was the Burma-Shave brand of brushless shaving cream and its innovative advertising program. The advertising included signs along highways such as Route 66 and many country roads. Usually six signs were erected, spaced for easy sequential reading by motorists. The first five contained messages, building up to the sixth sign, mostly the name of the product. Here's one example: Cheer up, face – the war is over! Burma-Shave. The speaker, Dennis Randall, is a retired engineer with a wide range of interests, including firefighting equipment and musical instruments.


The meeting is presented in cooperation with Historic Geneva. Anyone who wishes to attend the program virtually through Zoom must register ahead of time. To register, click here. The necessary login information will be sent to registrants via email 24 hours prior to the program. For any problems with registration or to register by phone, call the Historic Geneva office at 315-789-5151. Registrations must be complete before 12:00 noon, October 28, the day of the program.


The Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes is in its 47th year of programming meant to foster an interest in and to increase knowledge about all fields of antiques and collectibles. Meetings are free and open to the public, but membership is welcome and encouraged at $10 per year. Programs include meetings at the Geneva History Museum, field trips and social events.

Cell phone -

I learned the hard way -

I have been without my cell phone for almost a few weeks, now.
I THOUGHT something must have become bent on it,
since I could see a lot of light coming through the side slot.
I took it to "Battery & Bulbs", who repair cell phones,
and they knew right away what the problem was.

A swollen battery!

It can happen to most any cell phone, I think,
and also to your computer as well.
This is not a photo of my phone, - mine was MUCH worse, actually.

Below, is a link, which does not take long to read -
I think you will find it interesting,
and might save you a lot of problems, some day.

The above, is a painting which Sue did.
"New York Autumn Lakeside"
Cross Lake
She mailed the card to me, hard copy.

She also mailed to me, a very pretty painting,
which she painted, on an additional card.
It is so very pretty, with a sailboat on it.

"Smooth-Sailing"
Skaneateles Lake

If you look very closely,
you can read the words "Smooth Sailing",
written in red on the side of the boat.

The photo above does not do the picture on the hard copy justice, really.
Much more colorful on the actual, hard copy card.

Update on Denny R. as of 8-31-21

My throat is sore as hell as they decided to shove an endo-trachial tube
down into my lungs to check for blood clots---
finding none, they finally proceeded with the main event,
at 1:30 pm, 5 hours after I had arrived there.
I also have the usual 4 inch circles of severe sunburn
front and back, however I'm in NSR !
I have to take it easy for a couple of weeks
to make sure it takes, but it sure is nice not to be gasping for air .
Thanks to EVERYONE FOR THEIR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!!!

Denny - Sure happy to hear the good news!

Yes, - DO take it easy and give everything a chance to settle in!

MORE HAPPY NEWS:

FROM JUDY LOFFT

(8-31-21)

We were blessed with another little great grandson in June (no. 8),
(Logan, )and will be having another one in Oct. !!! Lotsa’ fun !!!!!

 Little story.....Bud's real name is Seymour Kenneth Lofft, (named after his grandfather), but has always been known as Bud or Ken.   Scott (our grandson, baby's dad) has always been real close to Bud.  .....Was with him all  the time when he was little.  Scott told me they were naming  the baby  Logan Seymour Lofft, but didn't tell Bud.  Well, needless to say, Bud was so surprised and very happy when he found out !!!

Logan was born with a cleft lip & palate....they found out a few months into the pregnancy from an ultra sound that he had this problem.  He has had one operation at 2 mo. old & will have to have a few more over a period of time.  So difficult to see your little gr. grandson  with this problem but it looks better after just the one.  He still has to be fed thru a tube but he's gaining weight, Thank goodness!

 

 

Congratulations to Judy and Bud - ENJOY!

Our "Sunshine Fund"

Sent Denny a best wishes and get well card,
from our class, including some lottery tickets.

Here is a note he sent to us today:

Hi----

I finally took the ticket down to the Shurfine
(formerly Big M) and scanned it---
I was amazed, I'm 50 bucks richer!!!!!
Thank you

 

*********************

 

Hi---No, I don't feel any better--
Next "electrocution" 5:00 am 9-1 at Upstate.
The cellulitis resolved with a shot in the butt, an iv drip,
and 17 days worth of Keflex.
It never rains, but what it pours, pun intended. During the storm Tuesday,the big apple tree in my front yard, blew down, right across Hamilton St..
The fire department cleared it out of the road
and the next morning at 7:00 (in the rain) my neighbor
across the street , Scott Randolph showed up with his chainsaw,
followed by my brother Phil shortly thereafter.
Between us we got it all cut up and stacked to
behind the house for my woodstove.
I wasn't much help, just driving the tractor hauling the wood.
The brush is all neatly stacked for the village to chip.
I saw Bruce this morning at the bottle recycling place.
I'm sure sick of this rain--
everything is flooded and it's raining again right now.
Thank everyone for me for their thoughts and prayers.
dr

 

Sure do hope you will be feeling better, very soon, Denny.

What a shame your apple tree fell down.
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
that a different tree fell down in your yard.

STAN WELLER

For those of you who wanted to know Stan's address

Here it is:

Stanley Weller

(Our thanks to Barb. W. for getting that for us.)

Also, our Sunshine Committe sent (Sympathy) cards to Stan and Gordie.

Connie sent a white rose to the funeral home in advance, from us,
but she was not able to attend, (on time), due to the fact
that that bus that turned over, near the Weedsport exit,
prevented her from being able to get to the services on time.

However, 3 hours later, she did get to see Gordie, Stan., and Alan.

Gordie appreciated it.

Thanks, Connie!

Sadly, Ron has lost his beloved "Dooley"
We have seen many photos of Dooley,
through the years, with Ron, on trips and all.

We are all so sorry, Ron.
You gave Dooley a good life.

 

Rest in peace, Dooley

UPDATE

On Dave and Marge ----

Dave and Marge
really appreciate your thoughts,
prayers and cards very much,
and do thank you for them.

As we know, Dave had Covid 19,
and has lost 60 pounds.

The Doctors now feel
that the cause of his passing out
has been a combination of several medical issues,
including Parkinson's Disease, and kidney disease.

Marge, too, has trouble with her back and knees.

They are enjoying being in their apartment,
and often go to the prepared meals together, when possible.

Please keep your thoughts, prayers and cards coming:

4100 East Fletcher Ave.

Apt. 813

Tampa, Fl. 33613

PETE

(3-20-21)

Note to me, from Pete-

Joan -

Let everyone know that I loved the cards and Emails!

I am doing well, and feel much better. Life is getting back to normal (or close) but it will take a lot more time.

The big thing is to take it easy, and let things come slowly.

Thank you and everyone else.

Peter

 

(I am behind on my BB notes -)

Since the above note, the class sent a gift to him:

Pete acknowledged that he received it,
and appreciates it.

Keep getting better, Pete!
We all are thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery.

I remember Dick made us some GREAT yearbooks,
for our class of '57 - many years after we graduated.

They show the updated information,
of what many of us had been doing
since we graduated, along with our up-dated pictures.

He did it out of the goodness of his heart,
and never charged us a penny.

He did a great job on them.

I believe most of us kept them.

Sue sent in some photos, from long, long ago.

You may click on the thumbnails below, to view larger photos:

 

1. Lorna, Diane and Connie at one of our reunions, at Sue's house.

2. Sue as a little girl, in a school photo taken in Kindergarden on her first day of school. My aunt bought the pale pink dress from Macy's in new york city
Amazingly, Lorna's aunt bought Lorna's 1st day of scl dress in Rochester -
Same exact dress.
The aunts thought they were getting a special one-of-a-kind dress,
and we ended with the same dress.
(Except Lorna's dress was powder blue instead of pink, like mine )
Lorna and I had already become fast friends at 3 years of age,
and lived right next door to each other on Jackson street.
My family lived in (Hutton house then).
Lorna was sad when I would introduce her as my OLDEST friend.
Don't call me your oldest friend. Call me your LONGEST friend.
When my grandma died, my family moved next to my granddad's house,
where I lived until I left for college.

3. School stage set 1991 by Sue.

DAVE BOWDEN

(1-26-2021)

Dave and Marge have a new address:

4100 East Fletcher Ave.

Apt. 813

Tampa, Fl. 33613

This is an assisted living home -

Marge says it is very nice.

It is a Lutheran Home,
and used to be, John Knox Village

For now, Marge is in the apartment,
and Dave is in the rehab. building,
which is right next to their apartment.

Dave is still having a hard time - falling a lot.
This started back in October.
So far, the doctors have not been able to come up with a diagnosis.

Unfortunately, Marge is unable to visit Dave at this time,
since Dave has contracted Covid-19.

We ALL hope and pray that Dave will get healthier very soon -
And in the meantime - they sure could stand some
thoughts, prayers and cards.

With the COVID19 -

Here are some words, that may help us to understand
the terminology they use, when explaining it:


Use VENTILATOR for machines that help patients breathe.

Use RESPIRATOR for the Protective masks health Professionals wear.

EPIDEMIC" vs. “PANDEMIC": What Do These Terms Mean?

An EPIDEMIC disease is one “affecting many persons at the same time,
and spreading from person to person in a locality where the disease is not permanently prevalent.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) further specifies epidemic
as occurring at the level of a region or community.

Compared to an epidemic disease,
a PANDEMICdisease is an epidemic that has spread over a large area,
that is, it’s “prevalent throughout an entire country, continent, or the whole world.”

What Is The Difference Between “QUARANTINE” and “ISOLATION"?

In general, a "QUARANTINE" is “a strict isolation imposed to prevent the spread of disease.”
We know what you might be thinking: so, a quarantine is … just an isolation?
Not exactly.

The takeaway:
People are put in "QUARANTINE" when they are NOT currently sick,
but have been or may have been exposed to a communicable disease.
This can help stop the spread of the disease.

In general, "ISOLATION"is when someone or something is set apart
or separated from other persons or things.
In medical contexts, isolation specifically means
“the complete separation from others of a person suffering from contagious or infectious disease.”

The takeaway:
"ISOLATION" happens when a person is infected WITH a communicable disease,
and is separated from people who are healthy. This also helps stop the spread of the disease.

Note from Sue:

(Nov. 16, 2018)

I am sharing a harvest of iPad art that I was able to publish into cards.  

( I'm gathering up stones), and I am still trying to fulfill my yearbook of '57 dream,
of becoming a grandma Moses... (at least the age is right).

I am so excited to be selling my art as stationery cards
in gift shops in Skaneatles and other locations,
and also selling them privately to friends and others,
after iPad presentations to different groups.  

Art does not exist until it is shared with others to be enjoyed.  

Art is that kind of gift that I treasure in my life.

This year, as we have mentioned,
we plan to have a small "Box of Memories" -
which we plan to bring to each reunion, in Weedsport,
for several more years.

If you are willing to share any COPIES of photos which you have,
of schoolmates etc., or little buttons
or anything (small) pertaining to our class,
we sure would appreciate your contributions to it!

Thanks!!

Class 57 45th reunion

These are some of the classmates standing in front of Sue's house,
where Sue, Connie, Lorna & Marcella hosted a most superb party !
( This great photo was submitted by Denny Salisbury - THANKS, DENNY ! )
Wish he could have been in the picture, though.

That sure was a wonderful (reunion) party!!

Thanks to Sue, Connie, Lorna and Marcie!

*********************

Of course, Sue has moved out of that house,
and now lives in Camillus.

Recently there was an article written in the Auburn Newspaper,
and this is what the house looks like now:

This has been sold again. 2019

Finally!

And at long last -

I am starting a NEW "Directory3" page for us -

The old one still has the links on it,
which DO work, and are up to date, (the links),
however, I have not been able to change a thing
on the old actual Directory page for several years now.

I don't know why the new information will not upload to the net.

So I finally had to give up trying to do that,
and just start from scratch with a brand new "Directory3" Page.

It will take me a long time to complete it.
But I do think it will be worth while.

Our class of '57 "Brick" -

(Aug. 6th, 2015)

A note from Cheryl Austin, who is the "Director" of the Weedsport Library:

 

"Hi Joan and Denny,

I'm pleased to tell you our landscape architect came last week,
and installed the brick order. 

The area is still a little sandy from the installation,
we will get all of the sand cleared off if rain doesn't take care of it.

I'm attaching a photo of the brick and a photo of the area as a whole.

Thanks again for participating in the brick garden project. 

What a lovely and lasting tribute to your class of a lifetime!

Regards,
Cheryl Austin"

Bob Leonardi

has written an article in the Auburn Newspaper -

"In Cooking, Practice Does Make Perfect."

He includes 2 recipes:

Potato with Oregano

Sauteed Steak

You can click on the link below to read it on-line,

http://auburnpub.com/columnists/bob_leonardi/in-cooking-practice-does-make- perfect/article_e90d769a-06fb-5d90-9892-40677ca0f030.html

or go to our "Leonardi" page on our class site:

http://joanhigham.com/Leonardi/Leonardi.html



SUE'S BOOK

http://www.lilliandwilly.com/

This is a book created completely by Sue -
All of the poetry, and artwork were composed and originated by Sue.

I feel this book is particularly interesting to folks to have lived, (or do live),
in the town of Weedsport, since so many of the artworks portray Weedsport,
as do the little poems accompanying each painting.

This is a clean-cut book, you can read to your grandchildren;
Or if they are old enough to read, they will enjoy reading it themselves.

A great gift idea for many occasions:

Children in a hospital, Sunday School, Weedsport elementary School,
dog lovers, (particularly Min-Pins), - since the book is based around
a dog named "Lilli", and her best friend "Willy" who is a clown.
They share many happy experiences together, through the different seasons, and holidays.

Each page you turn, will have a poem on the left side, and the corresponding artwork on the right side.

Easy reading - I would say quite large print.

You can read more about the book at the link above -

Great job, Sue!! thumbs up

Scholarship Fund --

$4057.57

Note from the Prez.:
(Nov. 29, 2007)

I am pleased to report that today
I have turned over to the WCS Alumni Association
the sum of $4057.57 in the name of the class of  ' 57.  

Whadda Class!!  

Thanks to all who participated in the project
and especially to Alicia
who handled the fund raising 
in the face of some very trying personal times. 

The Alumni Association typically gives
5 scholarships yearly totaling $2500.00 ,
so you can easily see how big an impact
a donation of this size helps the program.  

By the way, this is the second largest donation
ever received by the association
and by far the largest ever given by a class. 

Thanks again to all.
