Our (tiny) class get-together -

Feb. 12th, 2018 -

It was unusually small this year -
unfortunately, there were several who were unable to attend,
due to reasons beyond their control.

However, we did have Bob and Barb. Welch,
Barb. Ryan, Bruce and Kathy Christopher,
Ron and Phyl. Abrams, and myself.

We went on a boat ride at Clearwater Beach,
and had a lunch buffet there.

Several of us went up to the open top deck,
and saw the pretty view
of the beautiful Clearwater Beach, and Gulf of Mexico water.

It was very windy, up there - but good weather, thankfully!

After that - We went on a golf cart,
and rode around the roads,
pretty much in the same area as we had the little cars,
last year, in the Clearwater Beach area.

Our thanks to Bruce and Kathy for driving the cart!

I hope to get a page up soon,
with pictures, of the event,
however, I won't be able to do the pages
for a while yet, due to the fact that
I am having company here, for 2 weeks.

I wish you all a very happy Valentine's Day!

Joan

Happy Valentine's Day Rose

Note from Connie -

(1-30-18)

I am leaving this Thursday, (Feb. 1st),
to go to visit with Marcella in Phoenix, AZ for a month.

  I will be back Feb 28th. 

Looking forward to a lot of laughs, memories etc. 

We will be thinking of you and your party on the 12th. 

Just a note. 

My granddaughter, Alexa, who is13, had her tests this month,
and the cancer around her spine is dead,
but the spots on her lungs have grown and developed another. 

She cannot have chemo or radiation, as she had two years of it. 

They are going to see her again in April,
and at that time check to see if there has been any growth. 

There is something new they want to try this summer. 

Taking part of the tumor itself, doing something with it
and then introducing it back into her body to fight the cancer. 

We are very hopeful, but were saddened at the results of these tests. 

I just spent the evening with my son, and four of the kids,
and they are typical brothers and sisters, teasing, teasing, teasing. 

Alexa does her fair share. 

Just want people to keep praying for Alexa and her family.

Praying Hands

Connie -

We wish you a very safe trip,
and a fun visit!

We certainly will say many prayers for Alexa,
-- we are wishing her well,
and back on the road to recovery.

Old Erie Restaurant in Weedsport to close

http://auburnpub.com/news/local/weekly-top-reads-auburn-hockey-wins-in-ot-auburn-brewery/collection_040b2752-fee9-11e7-b7bd-57201f9741fa.html

(Scroll down to third story on the link above)

 

Old Erie Restaurant in Weedsport to close

The Old Erie Restaurant announced on its Facebook page Tuesday evening that the Weedsport establishment will be closing the first weekend of February.

“It is with heavy hearts we announce we will be closing our doors … Sunday, Feb. 4 will be our last day of service. Thank you for your support through the years,” the social media post announced.

Ted and Beth Tomandl, the current owners, bought Old Erie Restaurant in the village of Weedsport in August 2007 from David Gibson. The North Seneca Street building itself was built in 1938.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the announcement had received a lot of attention — over 230 reactions to the post, over 240 shares, and nearly 100 comments. The restaurant's Facebook page has over 2,000 “likes,” which is a larger number than the entire village of Weedport's population.

"That's terrible," said Cayuga County Legislator Chris Petrus upon hearing the news. "It was an outstanding restaurant and a place for the community to come out and be together and enjoy a good meal."

Petrus, who represents the town of Brutus on the county Legislature, said he used to work at the restaurant in high school.

Old Erie, which features German food on its menu, was an asset to the community and will be missed, dozens of people said in comments below the restaurant's social media post. Many people thanked the owners for running such a great restaurant, saying things such as “I'm so sorry to hear this.” And many were actively making plans with friends to go back to the restaurant together one more time before it closes down.

“Cheers to a well-run restaurant by some of the best people I know,” one comment said, “may your next chapter exceed your dreams.”

An out-of-towner even commented that she always looked forward to stopping at Old Erie Restaurant for a delicious meal when she drove to New Hampshire from Ohio to visit family.

The owners could not be immediately reached for comment on Wednesday. In addition to the Facebook post, the restaurant has been listed for sale.

Located at 8924 N. Seneca St. in Weedsport, the listing has an asking price of $349,000. In the sale listing online at loopnet.com, the establishment is described as a “beautiful Turn Key Restaurant,” and “a landmark destination in the village of Weedsport for years.” The online posting was first listed last April, and was last updated on Tuesday. The restaurant was assessed with a full market value of $354,100 last year.

      Hi---They finally put a pacemaker in me
(which I wanted to do in the first place, months ago)
and I feel better than I  have in a year!


  They decided not to do the AV ablation at this time
as they felt it was not necessary. 

I'm in normal sinus NSR stroking along at 72 bpm,
up from an erratic 38-40 bpm.

Home the same day! 

Thanks to everybody for their thoughts and prayers!!!!

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.

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"

Mike has written a very impressive article.

"A Diversified Collection"

He has a HUGE collection of toy trucks,
of all shapes, sizes and ages.

I can assure you, that you have never seen such a collection
of this size.

Great article and great photos!

He started to collect them since he was a little kid.

(April 8, 2015)

A Chinese project -

Institute For Global Understanding

 

A private school in Brandon, Fl., has taken an interest in the Chinese project, and it appears there will be no serious issues in starting the program with up to thirty Chinese students and an equal number of local 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. 

The concept is exciting as, unlike other foreign exchange programs that have just one foreign student in an otherwise American class, we are attempting to evenly match Chinese and American students in each class for the purpose of comparison and contrasting Eastern and Western educational theories and techniques, government, culture, history and anything else that makes their young people and ours see there are other people beyond the horizon.
 
Remember when we thought people who lived in (bordering towns) were somehow "strange"?  Well, the times, they are a changing.  We are calling the program the “Institute For Global Understanding”, and we hope it really will make a difference.

We plan on being ready by the beginning of the coming school year.  Hopefully we can find families that will take in one or more students.  There are over ten spoken for already. 

My role will probably be that of liaison between the two groups; trouble shooting as needed.  This might involve a trip or two to China, which I look forward to.  We hope to see the project grow each year, and be ongoing forever (or as close to forever as things go in the real world).

Pacific Ocean takes perilous turn --

Ocean acidification threatens to scramble marine life on a scale almost too big to fathom.

Bob Leonardi

"In Cooking, Practice Does Make Perfect."

He includes 2 recipes:

Potato with Oregano

Sauteed Steak

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,

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

The site contains interesting information, in simple terminology.
