An invitation:

Denny has written an article for the newspaper,
but it is also an invitation,
to see something new, at "The Old Brutus Historical Society"
(Weedsport Museum),
on this coming Monday, Aug. 20th.

His article is printed in full,
on our "Weedsport History" page.

http://joanhigham.com/WeedsportHistory/WeedsportHistory2.html

However, Monday is so close,
I will print his words below:

 

        On Monday, August 20th , at our regular monthly meeting and program we will officially open our "Robert J. Scarry Jr. Erie Canal Resource Center".  This is our first truly interactive exhibit which allows visitors a hands on opportunity to select and view  about 1000 canal slides from the life work of Mr. Scarry.  Robert Scarry was a history teacher in Moravia for many years and became a foremost authority on the Erie Canal.  His interest in the canal came to him early and naturally as he was brought up in Waterford not far from the canal.  He even used the Erie Canal as the subject for his wonderfully done Master's thesis.

        Soon after he passed away, his widow , Harriet came to us as a leading museum in the area which was actually on the canal and asked if we would consider being the repository of his lifework.  It sounded like a win-win deal to Historian Jeanne Baker and in the fullness of time  about 2 cubic yards of material  was unloaded at our museum and trundled up the handicap ramp in a pouring rain.  The material consisted of all his lifetime notes and research, as well as about 1000 35 mm slides in carousel trays and much more.

        We parked it in a convenient corner and really were unable to do much with the slides and notes.  After several years, his daughter who lived in the Rochester area at the time came to us and asked if she could digitize her father's work.  This was a relatively new technology at the time and we readily agreed.  Accordingly, for the next couple of years, every time we were open she would lug her equipment from Rochester, set it up in the museum and scan thousands of documents and slides into a digital program.  She eventually finished this massive project and gave us a copy of her efforts.

        None of us at the museum were smart (read that young) enough to put together a program on the subject.  Enter recently retired school teacher Tom Atkins who did a masterful job of putting together a program and actually added about 40 of our own canal pictures to the presentation.  The program will include the canal slides of Mr. Scarry from Teal Avenue and Erie Blvd. East in Syracuse west to Weedsport. Also included will be those local photos Tom found and scanned in.  The program will be digitally projected as a slide show and Mr. Atkins and I will make the presentation.

        As always, our programs are free and open to the public at the museum, 8943 N. Seneca St. in Weedsport, across from the post office. Refreshments will be served.   We hope to see you there as a tribute to Mr. Scarry and his daughter.  Many of the photos show Erie Drive (Rt.31) in the 1950's and 60's,and there's even a photo of a 14 year old Rollie McWethey fishing in the canal!

 

This will be at 7:30 PM

Good news --

(8-10-18)

Marge Bowden -

"Marge's back problems have improved greatly. 

She may have another series of injections to numb additional nerves,
but that has not as yet been determined. 

Although it is not possible to tell
whether these improvements will be permanent,
she is appreciative of the improvement she currently feels. 

It was great seeing classmates at the June reunion. 

Our blessings on both Marge's class of '58
and, of course -- the class of '57."

Dave Bowden

That sure is good news, Dave.

We hope the effect from the injections last for a very long time.

(Dave also mentioned that they appreciate everyone's concern.)

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.

Denny Randall has written an interesting article,
for the Auburn Pub. Newspaper.

Denny did not give it a title.

Below, is another message from Phyllis:

Act Now Before It's Too Late

House Poised to Act on More Anti-Immigrant Policies

 

Dear Phyllis,

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Donald Trump are wreaking havoc at our border and across our nation. Their 'zero-tolerance policy' that has torn 2,000 children from the arms of their parents in the past month is heartbreaking. This is the latest anti-immigrant move from the same administration that ended DACA for Dreamers months ago.

Family separation goes against everything we as people of faith believe. It goes against who we are as a nation. The separation of parents from their children is unconscionable. And, these policies are indisputably the result of the administration.

As the Trump Administration continues to implement these terrible policies that tear apart the fabric of our society, pressure is mounting for Congress to act. As recently as last week, it appeared possible for Congress to reach a bipartisan solution that provided a path to citizenship for Dreamers. As our family separation crisis at the border grows more desperate, bipartisan immigration negotiations have fallen apart and Republican leadership has doubled down on a partisan approach. 

Call your Representative now at 1-888-436-6478 to oppose bad, partisan immigration bills coming for a vote this week. Tell your Representative that you want real, bipartisan solutions to family separation and a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients.

The House of Representatives could vote as early as this week on two different bills: an ultra-conservative “Goodlatte Bill” and a bill that is being peddled as a “moderate compromise” but is in actuality a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Speaker Ryan and the Trump Administration are lying when they say that either of these bills will resolve the issue of family separation at the border and address a solution for DACA recipients in our nation. Time is of the essence—the House of Representatives could vote as early as this Wednesday.

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

Sister Phyllis Request

I cannot emphasize enough what a critical time this is on Capitol Hill.

Please call your Representative, share this email with your friends and family,
and do everything else you can to reach your members of Congress now.

Sincerely,
Sister Simone Campbell, SSS
Executive Director

P.S. In case you missed it, watch and share this video of my message to Jeff Sessions opposing his policy of family separation.

It’s also on Twitter!

(Although I think it has been on our bulletin board,
since June first.)

Phyllis put a remembrance in her "Just Us" this week.

Connie went to the calling hours,
for Denny's brother, timothy.

She brought a lovely white rose,
in a single vase, to represent our class,
and let Denny know we all were thinking of him,
at this very sad time.

Some of our other classmates were in attendance also.


Most of you saw this photo, in the Weedsport Alumni Associan pamphlet,
which they mailed to us, so we could read and see it,
and also fill out, and mail in
our reservations to go to the Alumni Banquet and dinner,
on Saturdya, June 16th.

The doors open at 5:15 PM, for registration and social hour.
then dinner will be served at 6:30 PM.

Hope most of you plan to attend, and will be wearing our "Class of '57" green shirts.

This photo was in the pamphlet, and photo was taken at the banquet, last year:

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

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 Randall

(Denny's Son)

(April 23rd, 2015)

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.

You can read his story on our link below.

SeaChange

In the Seattle Times, which is on-line, at the link below:

Pacific Ocean takes perilous turn --

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

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,

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.

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

The site contains interesting information, in simple terminology.
