NOTE FROM DICK BROWN:

(JULY 28, 2020)

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

 

 I am doing well - feel good, but they will not let me lift any more then the weight of a gallon of milk. My oncologist and my surgeon decided that I need to have chemo therapy.  I started last week and will have 4 cycles. I will also get neulasta starting Thursday. I am also going on a drug to help my bone marrow produce more platelets. So far I have had only one bad day (knock on wood). When you have both cancer and anemia it sucks. If my platelets get too low they will stop the chemo. I want to get this over with and get on with life. I am sure every cancer patient feels the same way. We have a couple of people in this park that are a heck of a lot worse shape then I am.

We are so glad the operation is over with,
and you are feeling well.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you
for you to have good results, and success
with the treatments you are receiving.

Hang in there, - we are pulling for you!

Joan

Writing guy

Denny has written another interesting,
personalized article for the Auburn Citizen Newspaper.

https://auburnpub.com/

You can read it there -(Click on "Lake Life") -

or here, below, on our class page:

http://joanhigham.com/WeedsportHistory/WeedsportHistory2.html
(Jan. 2015 through most recent)

This month's article is entitled:

"History Should Repeat Itself, Sometimes"

For those of us who were not good in history,
I added a little note below:

(The CCC)

The Civilian Conservation Corps
(A voluntary public work relief program
that operated from 1933 to 1942 in the United States
for unemployed, unmarried men ages 18–25,
it was eventually expanded to ages 17–28.)

I feel sure many of us agree with you, Denny.

We also have the OLDER articles on our other History Page:

******************Dear Classmates*******************


I've been sorting through office items to discard.  I have a stack of bank statements for our Sunshine account dating back to 2008 when we opened the account.

If anyone would like to audit them, please let me know. If you wish to review them, just let me know.  I would like to discard them by September 1, 2020 if you approve.

Please advise Barb Welch at,  bbwelch2@gmail.com. If you wish to review them.  The list of our income and expenses from April 2006 is also available for your perusal.

We did not obtain a checking account until 2008.  Prior to the checking account,  we  operated with cash only.   The persons listed on our checking account listed as:

W.C.S. CLASS OF '57 SUNSHIINE FUND are  Barbara Welch and Connie Bolton. Your support in carrying out this program has been, as always, appreciated.

Thank you Barb. and Connie,
for the wonderful job you are doing,
with the Sunshine gifts.

We ALL appreciate your time and effort on this very much!

Note from Denny R.:

(July 17th, 2020)

 

I'm sorry to report that in yesterday's thunderstorm (7-16-2020)
the carriage barn went down.....

The Spier carriage barn.

 I came through Sennett yesterday and it looks like the wind took it-
--it's all in a heap. 

 The place had a sold sign in front for a little while,
now it's got a "for sale" sign again.

 I think the guy that was going to put it back together
lost it to taxes after he had some drug problems.

The Rosebowl parade --

will not be seen this coming January,
due to the Coronavirus.

This will be the first time it has not run, since WW2.

Many of us will miss seeing that tradition,

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.

NOTE FROM Dave Bowden

(4-15-2020)

Sadly, Dave and Marge have lost 3 close relatives within a year.

"Son Mike died very unexpectedly about a year ago;
brother Roger a month ago,
and grandson Josh just last week."

  Read Dave's heartbreaking note below:

 

 

 

. The loss of our oldest son was less than a year ago, my brother recently,
and just last week, the suicide death of our 30 year old grandson.

. Our son Mike died very unexpectedly about a year ago; brother Roger a month ago, and grandson Josh just last week. 

. Marge and I feel pretty worn; physically and psychologically.

. Our faith is getting us through, although it is not easy.

. Marge and I were thinking just now, that maybe a few of our classmates
would be interested in at least some of the news, as many knew my older brother Roger, who went on to graduate from Syracuse U., and made a career in the Air Force;

. Our oldest son Mike who also graduated from Syracuse
and still holds the Big East Conference diving records;

. And son Ed (Tampa cop for over twenty years)
who was father of Josh, who committed suicide.

. Suicides are always tragic and (sadly) growing rapidly in number nationwide.

 

 

 

We are so sorry, for the crushing losses,
in your beloved family, Dave and Marge.

I know you must feel just devastated.

......................

Class:

Dave and Marge,
would appreciate prayers for their family.

Here is their Post Office address:

about 'Free Things' that people get.

My best example is this one, that my Mother got a long time ago.

I have no idea how I got it, but it is
carefully stored in a plastic envelope.

    I have scanned in the contents
of the very old envelope for people to see.

Thumbnail # 4 - Bernice Mary Coyle was 9 years old

Thumbnail # 5 - and she never used the snaps.

But who are the others?

MYSTERY

If so - Please let me know - (and thanks!)

Update:

Barb. W. gave this guess:

Identification of gals in the group picture.

My guess is as follows:left to right:

Barb Melvin, Joan Cheeseman, Judy Williams,

MarcellaJorolemon, Joan Wethey, Phyllis Tierney

Update:

Judy L. gave this guess:

I couldn't enlarge the photo very much,
but this is what I think...Barb M,   ????, 

Me, Carol, maybe Joan Wethey? & Phyl T.
Carol & I had bought "Bermudas" & shirts alike
& it also looks like we have sunglasses alike !!!!  

How  cute are the rest of the pics.......I love looking back......

we sure had a lot of fun !

(Now a little update to Judy's update) :-)

That is Joan Cheeseman next to B. Melvin....

look at the next pic & Joan C.s shirt
is the same as the photo in question. 

Now the one next to Phy T. looks like Donna Rowley. 

I'm thinking these pics were taken at a class picnic
at Cayuga Lake or Fair Haven. 

If I remember right,
Carol & I got our outfits at the Win ton Shoppe.

Notre Dame - Sketch by Sue:

"Drawing of Paris from the Artist Bridge"

(4-26-19)

Please click on the thumbnail below, for a much larger view:

Sketch By Sue

Please read the write-up by Sue,
pertaining to the drawing above -

You can see the spire, on the "Notre Dame Cathedral",
in this drawing --

 

These renderings of the central skylight of the heart of Paris,
were drawn from the "Artist Bridge", that spans the Seine River,
and takes one to the *Louvre Art Museum that houses the great art of the ages,
such as the Mona Lisa by DaVinci and the great impressionist painters
Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse, and Vincent van Gogh.

The Bridge was named the “Artist Bridge” because it seems that every artist is inspired to draw
the view from the Bridge that spans the scene.  

My son, Jim, did not tell me this, until I had finished my drawing. 

It was a fantastic view, with the spire of the Norte Dame Cathedral being the center and the very heart of the city. 

Last week, the horrendous fire altered this iconic view that lived thru the French Revolution, world war 1 and II ,
and was suddenly gone, as the world watched in disbelief.

The beautiful sculpture and artifacts of this Norte Dame Cathedral
was 80 percent saved from the fire that ravaged this 1160 year old structure,
although the 7 ton spire crashed into the nave of the church.

France has vowed to rebuild this national treasure.

On the 2nd trip to Paris,  Jim gave my drawing  to owners of an apartment house where we stayed,
a block down from the drawing's location .

Jim relayed the message to me that they have made my drawing, part of their permanent art collection ,
and that they were glad to have a drawing of the Bridge closest to them . 

I was thrilled to have my art hung in Downtown Paris.

I returned home to find  that my artist magazine had an ad on the *back cover,
of an artist painting the same view which I had drawn, , to advertise their canvas.

I hope to be able to return one more time to this city of lights.
 
Thanks to my sons Jim and Joe, I have these wonderful memories and inspiration to do art. 

 

The photos below:

*  The Pont des Arts or Passerelle des Arts is a pedestrian bridge in Paris which crosses the River Seine.
It links the Institut de France and the central square of the Palais du Louvre.

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"

"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.
