#1 - Picture taken at their camp

#3 - This was taken from our deck, looking over sodus bay, a week before the snow came.

#6 - This was taken on our way home from camp on Dec. 20th, looking toward the drive in theater in Auburn.

Hi, Phyl -

Those are great photos -

Thanks so much for sharing!

Glad you will be away from that weather, very soon!

Alicia -

(11-19-20)

Alicia was kind enough to send us a few photos to share.

One is of her beautiful dog, and the other 2 show the recent snow,
AFTER a few days since the storm, and much had been shoveled away.

Here is what she wrote:

"This is the look today.  (Monday, the 19th) -

It is a beautiful day, still low 30’s. 

Expect it to be
A bit warmer by the wkend, 40s.   

I got a path thru the snow bank on the corner on Fri, 
plow filled it in and I got the snowblower stuck. 

Pulled it back to the garage until later.

The dog still had to be walked and paths around back yard to be done.

Walked the dog and later made the path in the backyard.

The walks and driveway took a couple of hrs.  

I think I spent about six hours that day! 

Never did go back to the corner!

This is about half of what we had.

Our morning walk is 2 - 3 miles,  late night walk only a few blocks.

Haven’t  missed a day in five yrs.  

Coldest day was 13 below zero, much shortened walk!

This week was pleasant, low thirties."

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.

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:

(10-23-18)

 

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.

" 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.

The next time I go to London, I want to stay for a month or two, not a week."

(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.

DENNY R.

  "I am pleased to announce my appointment to the board of the

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."

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'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:

Connie made the suggestion to me, and I thought it was a great idea!

Thanks for the idea Connie!

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,

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.
