Successfully reattached colon so no colostomy!

Barb said OK to let the class know...

BARB WELCH -

Barb. is scheduled for major abdominal surgery, Friday.
The date could change, but at least at this time,
they think the operation will be Friday. The 25th.

Sue contributed the photo of a Christmas card
which was sent from Lorna,
a long time ago,

Two poems which Lorna wrote, a long time ago,

And a picture of Lorna's page

NOTE FROM CONNIE

(11-19-22)

Well, what a day. Lorna would've enjoyed her send off.

They decided a donation to the Alzheimer's would be nice.

I took the rose to the service and her son, Andy, took it home.

Denny R, Burt and Carole Ward, Gordie Weller and his daughter, Phyllis Tierney, my son and I represented the class of 57!

They did a slidepresentation for the family and the class of 57.
Had a few slides in the presentation.

 

 

NOTE FROM DENNY

(11-19-22)

****************Lorna's service*********************
The memorial service for Lorna went well, with over 100 people in attendance. There were 5 classmates there, Connie, Phyllis T., Burt, Gordy and I. The lady Minister of the church could not get over how our class has stayed together. Gordy's daughter ventured that their class has NEVER had a reunion. Unbelievable.

 

*********

If anyone has any thoughts or photos,
concerning Lorna,
which they would like to convey to us,
please let me know, if you would like those to be
added to our class bulletin board page.

Thanks

Joan

LORNA

IN THE CITIZEN NEWSPAPER:

May 11, 1939 - Oct. 23, 2022

https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/auburnpub/name/lorna-sande-obituary?id=37032287

 

 

NAPLES, FL/formerly WEEDSPORT - Lorna Elizabeth Sande passed into eternal life on October 23, 2022 at the age of 83. She was the daughter of the late Cerdric G.M. Jones and Grace (O'Hara) Jones of Weedsport, NY.

Lorna is survived by her husband of 55 years, Carl W. Sande; her two children: Andrew (Stefania) Sande, Erica (Keith) Czapla; her four grandchilden: Janee (Frederick) Haas, Leah (Kevin) Sweeney, and Maja and Luke Sande; her brother, Daniel (Patricia) Jones; her sister, Bronwyn (Ted) O'Hara; a sister-in-law, Audrey Simonson; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Lorna spent most of her life as a resident of Weedsport, NY where she taught kindergarten and fifth-grade for several years. She was an active member of the Weedport Presbyterian Church and enjoyed leading the group Clowns for Christ to spread the word of god and bring happiness to others. She enjoyed modeling for the Syracuse Guild Fashionata and was featured in many print ads and area commercials.

Her other hobbies included playing the saxophone in a local area band and spending time in her garden. Upon relocating to Florida, she became an active member of the Deltona Presbyterian Church where she made many life long friends.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 19, 2022, at 1:00 PM in the Weedport Presbyterian Church, 8871 S. Seneca St., Weedsport, NY 13166.

LORNA

NOTE FROM CONNIE - -

I just spoke with Erica, Lorna's daughter, and she told me:

The service for Lorna:

It will be at the Presbyterian Church in Weedsport at 1:00 pm on

November 19, 2022 . There will be a reception at the church

following the Service.

The class sent a card and will be sending flowers and I will take the white rose

Pete sent us some photos, also --

There are other pictures of Lorna, but these are the best. (Pete means the best he has.)

   She was always a cute kid, but as a young lady she was very attractive,
in black and white or full color.

I was two weeks older than Lorna, and we were always close as cousins
K thru 12 in school, then after that when we could get together,
it was like we last saw each other yesterday,
and that went on for over 80 years.

 

SUE

10-26-22

Sue has some words she would like to say,
in her memories of Lorna:

 

lorna was very active in clown ministry in her church in Weedsport. 
When she moved down to Florida she continued her work. 
This is a photo of herself in a character clown persona that she created to deliver her faith - teaching.   She had a bubbly, fun-loving way of delivering her messages to her church groups .  She was always playful and creative from childhood.
   One time she talked me into dressing dress as a teacher clown for halloween, named “Eggatha”, as  she decorated my hat with plastic eggs.   She had me painted in the classic clown- make-up and I appeared for all my art classes as Eggatha, who was the substitute teacher for the absent Mrs. G.   Eggatha even went  marching in for the annual  school halloween parade.  It was so much fun and I never would have considered it without lorna .   We had always played dress up as kids and here we were still having fun dressing up when we were teachers. 
She gave me charts of clown-make-up design, for the art students that made a wonderful unit for the students to draw their own special clown portraits.  
Her love of her clowning and teaching most certainly brought fun, love and laughter, as she taught her special lessons. And to this friend and to this class  of 57, we were blessed with her lifelong joyful Spirit and friendship. Remember that she was voted by the class to be THE CLASS CLOWN IN OUR 57 YEAR BOOK!!!!  She will remain in our hearts always.

1. Cooper's Rock State Forest (Fairly close to their home)

2. Blackwater Falls

3. "Potomic Eagle" Scenic Rail Excursions, with dinner aboard.

Note from Alicia
(9-22-22)

 

I talked to Ron just after his birthday.  He seems to be having some trouble with his legs swelling and is often limited in his walking. Much due to his chagrin, the treatment often takes a few days for the swelling to reduce again.

Ron wished to send  a “Hello” to all of our classmates.

I am happy for a couple of my family.. ..  ..

My son was finally able to tell me limited info on his last project,  in space one of the launches in August will continue on past the planet Jupiter and send back pictures. Never has been done before .   He is an optical engineer,  real life star wars stuff, like a blurb in a physics book.

Grandson Mike left Univ of Georgia to take a position with Univ of South Carolina as a strength training coach. Exciting for me but USC was blown away last wk. Probably it will be the only time Mike will know all the players on the field.  I was trying to watch the Syr Univ game but had to keep switching to look for the grandson on the sidelines of USC game!

Don’t want to send anyone in NYS into a panic,  but I saw a leaf  fall!

Cheers,

Alicia

Note from Pete:
( 9-12-2022)

 

I remember Sept. 11 well. I was not working that day and I was in bed until about 10:30 AM and went down and turned on the TV. When I found out what was going on I was frustrated because my A-EMT had run out and I didn't have any way to go to NYC and help. I wanted to go down to help. Then I checked and the Arsenal had closed for an unknown length of time. I finally found the last supervisor to go home (an old friend). Who told me that I would be called when they reopened.

It was a long day.

AEMT Stands for "Advanced Emergency Medical Technician".
That was very thoughtful of you Pete ---

Note from Denny Randall,
(9-11-22)

 

Hi---I was down there a couple of times helping man an info booth on the pier.
What struck me the most was that other than the steel,
EVERYTHING else, the concrete, glass, office contents, desks, filing cabinets paper,
everything was reduced to a fine white powder.

I just completed my annual player piano gig at the State Fair,
but it wasn't easy as I'm back in CHF as of 7/23. sigh

Actually, I was good and in NSR from the last ablation,
the day before my birthday Jan 26, until July 23rd.
I've got a loop recorder planted in my chest,
that tells the doc what's going on all the time.
It tattles on me via cell phone towers.

As a note aside and noting my British heritage, I lament the passing of the Queen
and note that the day after 9/11, she ordered the Grenadier Guards
to play the STAR SPANGLED BANNER during their change.
This was the ONLY time in history that they have played a foreign national anthem.
The last I knew, it was still available to see and hear on u-tube,
including the American tourists on the scene bawling their eyes out.
What a wonderful lady to think of doing that!

They haven't figured out what to do with me,
I'm resisting going on O2, but I may have to.

Hi, all -
We are doing well!

Just got home today from a week at the beach with the whole family!!
Will send you a picture of the whole crew!!

2 daughters & and their husbands
6 granddaughters – 3 married and 2 with boyfriends –
one of them got engaged on the beach the last night we were there.

Also – 4 great grand kids –
Luke, 3 1/2, Sarah 1, Morgan almost 3 and McKenzie 7 weeks.

We had a total of 6 condos at North Coast Village Condos –
perfect family vacation!

We don’t really follow basketball much,
but do take note of how our LV Aces are doing so well –
we go to a doctor who is the team doctor for the Aces.

Having been away for a week haven’t kept up on the latest.

Judy will be back in Auburn next month for her 60th class reunion –
staying at Farley’s point with our 2 daughters.

Best to all of you.
Bob (and Judy)

 

Thanks so much, for contributing your family photo,

Another trivia -

I hope a lot of you had the chance to see the movie:

"Don't Look Up" -

Gee - I really enjoyed that movie a lot.

The Netflix film, Don’t Look Up
made waves with its appearance on the streaming service,
boasts a high profile, coveted cast with 
Meryl StreepLeonardo DiCaprioTimothee Chalamet
Cate Blanchett, and Jonah Hill,
as well as Jennifer Lawrence back from a long hiatus.

The film was written and directed by Adam McKay,
who’s currently at his best with his writing and directing credits,
as well as being a producer on the hit HBO show.

Well, that (above), was the movie.

But now, back here on earth in real time,
We are trying to deflect an asteroid called Dimorphos.

This asteroid (Dimorphos) is not ANY threat to the earth,

Joan -

(8-11-22)

Back from my trip up north,
and I had a VERY nice time.

 

Below are 8 thumbnails which you can click on,
to view - most won't really be too interesting to you,
I feel - hope a few are.

 

Photos 7&8 most recently added

 

Photo #1 - "Spier Reunion in Syracuse - You can see me way in the back on the left side.
We had a total of 80 relatives at the reunion, coming in and out throughout the day.

Photo #2 - My cousin Bob Spier - You had seen his photo earlier when he was selected to be in the "Honor Flights" of Syracuse. Here he gave the Marines a plug, while up on our little platform.

Photo #3 - Another of my cousin Bob Spier - celebrating the day with us at our reunion.

Photo #4 - My son David, with me, sitting at the table at the VERY LOVELY restaurant, in Skaneateles, NY. The "Mirbeau Inn and Spa".

Photo #5 - We fed the fish, which are in their pond, outside of their dining room door.

Photo #6 - A view of the fish eating the food, from the other side of the little decorative bridge.

Later - Dave and I went downstairs, and purchased 2 packages of very pretty cards, which had paintings on the fronts of them, showing different views of the restaurant. Very nice.

Guess who drew the paintings on them? Sue. They are VERY nice, indeed!

I might add the meal was extremely tasty - Dave says the best filet mignon he has ever had!

Photo #7 - The old Spier house in Sennett, being refurbished. (2022)

Photo #8 - The six-story mural pays tribute to Breanna Stewart, Earl Lloyd Jr., Dolph Schayes, and Manny Breland, four of the city's most well-known and celebrated basketball stars.
Never, of Venice, California, began work on the Monroe Building at 333 East Onondaga St. on May 25. Never estimated the building is 90 feet wide and 70 feet high.
He painted about one person per week and completed the mural within a month.

ALICIA -

July 24, 2022)

I am so excited for my next grandson who is a SR at Lewis University near Chicago.
He has earned his wings as a commercial pilot.

He has given up nearly all of his vacations in order to get his flight hours completed.
He is determined and has persevered through all the weather setbacks possible in the windy city.

Originally from Florida, he had no idea of a winter up north!

Just after completion, here is a video of a tornado that went through, near his control tower!

 

https://twitter.com/NWSChicago/status/1551044691818192896?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1551044691818192896%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=about%3Ablank

 

Well, that is a super-great accomplishment, Alicia!

I can see how/why, you are excited --

Congratulations to him - he really earned it!

Linda Pantusi Gilfus

(Feb. 10, 1953 - July 10th, 2022)

Linda was a very young sister of Rose.

Sadly, she passed away quite young, I would say,
considering our generation.

Her sister Rose, passed away in 2016.
I believe at the age of 76 - which was before she reached her birthday, that year.

Our thanks to Alicia for spotting that in the newspaper for us.

"I had a wonderful day with my adult children.
And a parade in the village of Owasco!"

Below, is a copy of an old Weedsport Post Card,
which was sent to us to post, by Phyllis Abrams.

Thanks, Phyl!

(Below you can click on the thumbnails, to see a larger photo.)

 

Denny Randall added some interesting facts, about the above post card:

Hi - The photo of the railroad station was just beyond where Weasel lived. It was of course the New York Central station and oddly looking west (as the picture is) the station is marked "WEEDSPORT" and the mileage from New York City, whereas on the other end of the building it was marked "NORTH WEEDSPORT" with the mileage note..Trivia for the day: Between the 4 tracks of the NYC, and 2 tracks each for the West Shore, Lehigh Valley and Syracuse & Rochester Electric Railway there were 34 departures a DAY from Weedsport at the height of rail travel in the country before Henry Ford ruined it all with his Model T.

Best always dr

 

Thanks, Denny (Mr. Weedsport Encyclopedia)

"Proud of him"!

(April 30th, 2022)

My cousin, Bob Spier, was honored to participate
in the Honor Flight for Syracuse.

https://honorflightsyracuse.org/

This program flies veterans to DC,
Arlington Cemetery, where they are recognized
and celebrated for their service to our country..

Bob has always been a very proud veteran of the Marine Corps.,
...and the fact that he served in the Vietnam War.

There have been several people who lived in Weedsport,
who served in the military, and were given this honor also,
throughout the years.

In fact, Bob was happily surprised to receive several cards,
notes, drawings , and accolades from a lot of Weedsport students!

He appreciated them all!

Hi----My procedure went very well and 5 days later i'm still in NSR; I'm learning to breathe through my nose again and feel a lot better in general.
People are living in the Spier house. They've installed a Metalbestos chimney in the room on the southeast corner and are obviously burning a woodstove in there. They got wintered out with their exterior work, but are apparently making progress elsewhere. The day I stopped a couple of years ago it had been completely gutted out inside. Best always dr

We hope you keep feeling better each and every day, Denny!

I received a phone call from Ron this afternoon -

He sounds great!

He enjoys where he is living,
but misses his best pal "Dooley".

He has a big photo of Dooley, in his room,
and also on his computer.

He can't cook in his room -
only has a microwave and small refrigerator,
so he goes to the lunch room,
where the residents pick out what they would like to eat,
and he eats it there, rather than bringing it all back to his room.

He mentioned that his room is way down the hallway,
pretty much as far away as you can get from the cafeteria.

He frequently takes a little ride around his outdoor area,
using his little ("scooter??)- a few times a day.

Thankfully right now they don't have any "Covid" in his facility.

Ron prefers a phone call rather than e-mail.
If you phone him, please remember he is in a different time zone.

He would love to hear from you!

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

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.

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

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.

SUE -

(A thank you note for our class)

 

hsueguszcza@gmail.com

 

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.

as most assisted living places do.

And now, of course,
Ron's pal "Dooley" has passed away.

I was happy to hear, that his meals are fabulous!
Almost like a restaurant, he said -

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!

Denny Randall's D C Conversion
has been rescheduled for Monday,
August 30th

Note from Denny:

Hi - Here's the latest--
My next electrocution has been changed
from 5:30 am Wednesday to 9:30 Monday.
I had to get a covid test yesterday
for admission to Upstate.
Sigh!!!

 

Denny - We wish you the very best outcome,
for your successful and finally desired results
of the D C Conversion.

Also, please note the corrected address at the bottom.

Here is her correct address:

Thank you, Connie for the update.

We wish Lorna happy and well.

I hope our class will take the time to send her a card.

She no longer uses a computer.

conniegb1939@verizon.net

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
Box # 54
Walworth, NY 14568

(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!

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

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.

Dave and Marge have a new address:

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.

Newspapers, in today's world:

Printed newspapers are all on hard times, and just yesterday, (4-5-19),
the Citizen announced that it will no longer be printing their own paper daily.

They are going to have it printed in Canandaigua and truck it to Auburn, daily. 

There is no longer a Pennysaver, or Inport type paper locally.

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.

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.

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"

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,

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

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.

These four web pages above, are very helpful -- I particularly like the second one,
which "de-bunks" the pesky and untrue "E-Mail warnings", alphabetically.

Thankfully, this web site is simple and fast to use, -- I hope you will try it.

The site contains interesting information, in simple terminology.
