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.

Note from Connie --

Hi,

We have a date for Alexa’s surgery. 

It is November 15, 2018 at Sloan Kettering in NYC. 

She will have the largest tumor removed and perhaps the 2nd one,
they will not know until they see what is going on inside. 

Their intentions are to leave the 3 little ones alone. 

She will have a 5 day recoup. period, and then stay a few days at Ronald McDonald’s,
so as to be close to the hospital and then come home. 

Of course this is all that is planned at this time and the best scenario.

 I have had a trip planned to go to my sisters in Texas from the 13 to the 27th,
and the kids want me to still go so as of this writing I am going. 

Heart is not really in it, but my sister needs me too.

 This is all I know at this point but will keep you posted as we go along.

 Connie

Class - I know Alexa's family would appreciate any prayers
for her successful surgery, if you would like to send any.

Thanks

Welcome back to Florida, Kathy and Bruce!

(11-01-18)

Dear Family & Friends,

This past weekend we traveled to Vidalia,LA on the Mississippi River
to visit George & Lorri Alles, friends we have not seen for over 20 years. 

They took us sightseeing on Saturday to Natchez, MS (right across the river from Vidalia)
where we saw antebellum homes and streets that reminded us of New Orleans.

Hurricane Michael made it impossible to secure a campsite in Northern Florida
so we traveled to Georgia. 

While traveling in Georgia we went through Donalsonville
which had also been hit by Hurricane Michael (a category 2 hurricane at that point)
and we were taken back at the damage and devastation.

On Wednesday, October 31, we arrived at our home in Florida
ending our eight weeks traveling to see the southern states. 

We want to thank our family and friends for allowing us to share our adventure with you.

We wish you all the best and God Bless.

Kathy & Bruce

Note from Judy Lofft:

We have our house up for sale. 

We're putting a small double wide
on land our daughter & son-in-law bought a couple years ago. 

They bought a nice house & 7 acres of land
just outside of Port Byron with this in mind. 

We hate to leave our home,
but it is becoming too difficult for Bud & me to keep up. 

We don't need such a big house with an acre of yard to maintain.

Today we visited Chip & Joanna Gaines,
(from HGTV “Fixer Upper”) Magnolia Market in Waco, TX.  

The Market encompasses the “Magnolia Silos”,
“Magnolia Seed & Feed” and the “Silo Baking Co.”.  

We then visited “Magnolia Table”, their restaurant. 

It was fun to visit the different places seen on their HGTV program.

(You may click on the thumbnails below, to view a larger sized photo)

Kathy and Bruce actually sent many more photos than just the ones I am posting.

I am only choosing some of the photos -

Actually, ALL of their photos are interesting, but there just isn't room
on this Bulletin to hold them all.

Soooooo - you are missing some of their lovely photos.

You can ask them to send more to you, if you wish.

I think they would be happy to do so.

(10-18-18)

Hi,

Well Greg called and gave me the outcome of Alexa’s latest trip,
to Sloan Kettering (“SK”).

They will be scheduling surgery in about two weeks.

               She has 5 spots: 1 has doubled in size, 1 is growing, and 3 are the same.

She will have recoup time.

Then she will go back for 5 days of chemo.

Home for a few weeks and then back for 5 days more of chemo

I am not sure how long they expect this schedule to go on.

They are trying a new trial test in the form of a pill,
that might enable her to keep her hair,
(even though she is beautiful with no hair.)

This is all I know right now.

All I know is that Alexa and her family,
need all the prayers and help they can get.

I do not know if all of your knew that Greg and Suzette,
split up this June.  So sad. 

The kids go back and forth, the two oldest live with Greg,
and the 3 little? Ones go back and forth. 

They are all on the same page when it comes to Alexa.

On a happy note – Alexa looks great,
and she has the spirit of a thousand winds.

Nuns on the Bus!!

(10-9-18)

First Blog by Phyllis Tierney -

Phyllis

Nuns in the bus for distribution:

Greetings from the Bus!

Today is our second day and we are in the middle of the desert,
traveling toward Las Vegas.

Monday was the beginning.

We were launched in a park near Santa Monica beach.

Sr. Simone gave a powerful introduction
about why we are on the bus to seek tax justice for all Americans
so that those of us who are most vulnerable,
will be able afford the programs that protect them.

“Reasonable revenue for responsible programs” is her mantra.

We heard from the “little lobbyists” -
children who are lobbying for programs
that protect vulnerable families like Child Health Insurance (CHIP).

Representative Nancy Pelosi spoke
and Rabbi Brous gave us a blessing
and we were launched!

( See Network’s Nuns on the Bus Facebook page).

In the afternoon,
we visited Homeboy Industries founded by Father Greg Boyle, S.J.

Some of his amazing staff shared their stories of heartbreak and recovery.

We visited the Homegirls bakery and visited with Christina,
who has earned her way to become the pastry chef.

She has made her children proud to have their mom back,
after years in and out of jail.

Boris shared his story as a”lifer” who was paroled after 25 years
and found his way to Homeboys.

Janet had several relapses before she was able to earn her way
as a caseworker for other “homies.”

It was a most amazing afternoon!

Evening found us at our First Town Hall meeting.

We had great audience participation
after our dramatization of the effects of the permanent cuts in income tax
and their effects particularly on the lowest quartile of the population
who will lose the benefits they have when social programs
that help to support them are cut.

Las Vegas for Distribution:

We spent time yesterday afternoon and this morning
with the Culinary Union in Las Vegas
seeking to organize workers on three major casinos.

We heard their stories and shared the pain
of low wage workers working for economic justice.

Today we helped to canvass neighborhoods
to encourage people to get out and vote.

The Union is supporting several Democratic candidates in the election.

Most of the homes we visited were gated in an older neighborhood.

We left literature because folks weren’t home, or wouldn’t answer doors.

We encountered resistance at the town hall meeting last night,
from a Right to Life group.

We are beginning to understand the deep divide in our country! 

Time for many prayers to heal these deep divisions!

Phoenix Town Hall, and Tuscon Town Hall -

The Phoenix Town Hall Meeting, on Wednesday Evening,
at Shadow Rock UCC Church, was an amazing experience.

(Please click on the thumbnail below, for a larger view.:)

Phyllis Tierney

The photo is from the Town Hall in Tuscon. 

Each of us holding the $$ represents a particular income level. 

I was representing the top income quartile (but not the 1%)!

Each of us moved forward or backward, depending on our income level
and what the permanent tax cuts did for us. 

The shift now is to try to cut social programs because our national debt is so high. 

These cuts will mean that the lowest income brackets
will drop off and be worse off than they were before. 

In the meantime, Corporations continue to be the biggest beneficiaries
at the expense of everyone else.

Cutting all the social programs can’t begin to meet the trillions of dollars in debt
for the US government which we can never pay off.

Anyway it was a grand experience. 

I’m glad I went. 

We talked to so many people
who are looking for some hope in their lives.

Phyllis

In April 2014, Bruce and I had the privilege to go to Israel,
with Max Lucado and Steven Curtis Chapman. 

Pastor Lucado’s Church is Oak Hills Church in San Antonio. 

Yesterday we had the privilege to attend his church and hear his sermon. 

We also met a couple from his church that went to Israel with us.

We were warmly welcomed and had time to speak to Max,
and have our picture taken with him. 

It was a very blessed evening.

Today we have moved on to Waco, TX.

Good Evening Family & Friends,

Today we visited The Alamo. 

The Battle of the Alamo (February 23-March 6, 1836)
was a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. 

General Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission,
killing all but women & and children and Joe a slave of William Travis. 

Travis was a co-commander with James Bowie.

Another notable who perished was Davy Crockett. 

This battle gave way to Sam Houston’s battle cry “Remember The Alamo”. 

It was a day of history and rain.

Until next posting,

God Bless,

Kathy & Bruce

The first two pictures are scenes from our trip from Gallup, TX to El Paso, TX. 

The remaining pictures are of The Ysleta Mission, the first and oldest mission established,
not only in El Paso but in the state of Texas. 

Currently, it is the second oldest continually active parish in the United States.

We will be traveling the next two days ending up in San Antonio on Thursday.

Until then, God Bless,

(10-10-18)

We traveled from Texas to Santa Rosa, NM and spent two nights camping there
where we met Mark and Gwynn Osborne, from California. 

We will admit that the scenery from Texas to New Mexico was miles of nothing
(just as we had been told by friends when we first began planning this trip).  

We moved on to Las Vegas, NM where we camped Friday, Oct 5th-8th. 

While there we met Paul & Terry Sundberg from Illinois.  

The pictures below are from our ride around Las Vegas and to Santa Fe.

Good Afternoon Family & Friends,

After Las Vegas, NM we traveled to Albuquerque, NM
for the annual Balloon Fiesta. 

We were told that it will take 2 1/2 hours to travel 15 miles
due to the high volume of traffic
and that a gentleman left at 4 am and missed the ascension
so we decided to leave at 3 am.   

There was no traffic at that time and it only took 45 min.
The temperature was in the in the 30’s and cold. 

There was was some wind that delayed the takeoff
but it was “Wow” after they received the green flag to lift off.

We hope you enjoyed the pictures previously sent along with these pictures.

Until next time.

God Bless,

Good Morning Family & Friends,


On Monday, October 1st we traveled to Palo Duro Canyon, “The Grand Canyon of Texas”.
The second largest canyon in North America. 

“Palo Duro” is Spanish for “hard wood”
in reference to the Rocky Mountain Juniper trees still seen in places in the canyon. 

Palo Duro Canyon is approximately 120 miles long, 600 to 800 feet.  

Our next big stop will be Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta.

Take care and God Bless,

" I picked out some pictures for you. Most Were taken in and near the
Tower of London, which was my favorite place to take pictures. I have a
friend who is an International Airline pilot. He told me that London is
his favorite city in Europe. Now I know why. In London the old, very
old, new and newer all exist side by side and get along very well
together. An example of this is the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge
and in the middle of Modern London, with a very modern City Hall across
the river. Near by is an 800 feet high tower building called 'The
Shard' because it looks like a broken piece of glass.

Most of these pictures have a story, if anyone wants to know.

Good Evening Family & Friends,

We have been very busy since our last communication.  

We visited Hot Springs, Arkansas, which has a very interesting history. 

One - for hot springs which attracted people
(that included Presidents), from across the United States for medicinal reasons.

Second - gangsters that would frequently visit Hot Springs, Arkansas
because they had the protection of the local police. 

Needless to say a very interesting history.

Then we went to Blackwell, OK to visit with Kathy’s cousin Nellie Jack
who she hadn’t seen for 44 years. 

Needless to say there was a great deal of reminiscing, 
meeting her children and grandchildren and attending church
where her husband, John is pastor.


During our visit they took us to Ponca City, OK
to visit the Marland Mansion, the Home of E. W. Marland, oil baron
and 10th Governor of Oklahoma. 

It was a wonderful weekend from beginning to end.

Today, we traveled to Sayre, Ok as a stop over
on our way to Palo Duro Canyon State Park, The Grand Canyon of Texas.

God Bless,

Kathy & Bruce

It is Monday September 24th
and we are just north of Little Rock, Arkansas at another COE campground. 

We spent the weekend in Hernando, Mississippi, a COE campground. 

It was a rainy weekend so other than getting some groceries
we totally relaxed by taking walks, reading and playing cards.

We will be here through Thursday when we move on to Oklahoma.

Arrived at our first COE (Corp of Engineer) campground on Monday, September 17th
and it is big improvement from the KOA we left in Horse Cave, KY. 

Both campgrounds we only had electric & water,
the KOA was $48/night the COE 11/night with Senior Pass.
We had some beautiful sunsets at the COE over the lake.

Friend, Becky Hudgins, from the Nashville area joined us on Tuesday
and took us around the city.  

We went to the United Methodist Church Upper Room
which has a museum and a carving of the Last Supper. 

We also visited a replica of the Parthenon and Opryland Hotel. 

The Opryland Hotel is huge, we took a boat ride around the inside of the hotel.

Today we are going to the Ryman Auditorium
(the original Grand Ole Opry House) for a concert.

Until our next posting

Pete O'Hara -

(9-6-18)

Pete sent us some photos of Coke bottles -

Here is what he wrote:

Do you remember the old glass Coke Bottles?

The Europeans still use them.

They come in a couple of different sizes
which is a small problem.

The better restaurants may use the smaller bottle,
which is 200 mil or 6.8 oz.,
but you may get a 320 mil or 10.8 oz.

    I liked these small bottles, but they were high priced
(in the place we got them).

   There is nothing on the bottom,
and I included a US Plastic one for size comparison.

Thanks, Pete -

Yes - back in Sennett, a long time ago,
we used to look on the bottom of the bottles,
to see which state that bottle had been made in.

That information was imprinted on the bottom of each bottle.

Bruce and Kathy -

(Aug. 26, 2018)

We will be leaving Monday, September 10th to begin a trip of the southern states.  

Kathy will be doing her blog again, to include pictures and you are in that group.

 Our first stop will be the Ark Experience and the Creation Museum,
then on to Mammoth Caves, Gatlinburg, Albuquerque, for the Balloon Festival, Texas,
where we want to attend church, where Rev. Max Lucado preaches,
Oklahoma, California and Louisiana.

We plan to be on the road at least 8 weeks ending up in Florida.

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

Bruce and Kathy -

(9-12-18)

Our 2nd trip west began Monday, September 10th
with a overnight stop at Kathy's parents
who were celebrating their 69th Wedding Anniversary.  

On Tuesday, September 11th
we traveled to Big Bone Lick State Park in Kentucky.  

We choose this campground
as it was halfway between the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.

**********

Bruce and Kathy -

(9-14-18)

Yesterday, Bruce and I visited
the Ark Encounter located in Williamstown, Kentucky.  

It was awe inspiring to take the bus in and see it for the first time. 

The size makes one step back and realize the importance Noah’s Ark played in our Christian history.

Today (Friday, September 14th) we traveled to Horse Cave, Kentucky
where we plan to visit Mammoth Caves.

if there is a plus sign - +,
you click on that photo again, and a larger yet photo appears.

(Probably all of you already knew that.)

 

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

Bruce and Kathy -

(9-15-18)

Today we did Mammoth Cave. 

Walked a total of 500 steps down and up and believe me,
we are now feeling everyone of those steps. 

What a beautiful country the Lord has made.

Tomorrow is a down day after church.

Denny R.:

(8-30-18)

Hi--I feel generally good
(good enough to have been at the State Fair every day
for my annual gig at the Arts & Home Bldg. demonstrating to people
how pipe organs and player pianos work).

  I have done that for 52 years
since we moved the "mighty" Wurlitzer theatre organ
from the soon to be demolished RKO Keith's theater
on Salina St. to the  fair grounds.

    We had an astonishing 82 people at the Erie canal program
and I was surprised and pleased to see Connie among them. 

I didn't get much of a chance to talk to her,
but I was real happy to see her there. 

I think my pacemaker is doing well,
since I'm again able to do "stuff".

Joni Wethey Jones -

Joni's ashes will be scattered Sunday, the 12th.

I don't know the details,
and her daughter's e-mail address apparently no longer works,
so I have been unable to find out more.

I'm pretty sure it will take place in New York State,
and it almost seemed - going by memory -
but not certain, that it would take place in Auburn.

We sure do miss her.

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:

Jouse in Weedsport

 

Grayson's Cottage is a specialty store, selling handmade unique and antique gifts in Weedsport.

You can read the story which is in the Auburn Newspaper, at this link:

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"

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.

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.
