Please mail checks to:

Judy is taking the money for reservations for our CLASS events, now -

The sooner you can get your reservations in,
the easier it will be for our class to get an estimate 
of how many will attend, and that will make it a lot easier,
to estimate the amount of food they need to serve.

That would help a lot!!

Thanks!

ALSO ---- If you do NOT plan to attend,
please let Judy know,
so again, we can get a head count.

We have to know how much food to order, folks!

Marge Bowden (class of '58) and wife of Dave,

with severe back problems. 

A multitude of tests have been taken,
and a spinal operation (she has already had four),
is anticipated later in March. 

Thoughts are appreciated;
prayers even more so,
as there is no such thing as too many prayers.

We will let you know the outcome.

"I got home ok and had a wonderful time with Marvella."

Actually, I don't know if "Marvella" is a new nick name

The most recent activity,
was for Joni Wethey Jones -

We've sent sympathy cards to: 

Cliff Jones and Family, and Janice Compton,

as well as a $50.00 contribution to the American Cancer Society.

Our class certainly does appreciate all of the time and work
which it takes, to accomplish all the things that they (Sunshine Committee) do.

They send personalized cards, a wide variety of gifts,
(some even home-made), flowers at (some) visitation services,
and many other things, in a very thoughtful and timely manner.

Thank you, Sunshine Committee!

Thank You Bear Hugs

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

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!

Note from Connie -

(1-30-18)

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

Joan - & Class -

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 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.

This link will open up a new window -
but the link is within our class site.

Great job, Mike!

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).

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.

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