ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hello to all my classmates!  

I wanted to let you all know that this website is still active.  Some of you may have tried to log on and were notified that that it was not an active site.  Well...seems like the credit card I used when I purchased the domain name expired and when I received notification of the pending termination...I ignored it...thinking it was spam...since it came from an unknown source.  When I signed up I selected the automatic renewal so it never dawned on me to check it out!  Well..its fixed and thankfully all the information is saved!

I hope everyone is surviving the pandemic without too many hardships.  Praying we have a vaccine soon so we can move forward!

Hugs

Best wishes to all of our classmates for a healthy and very happy 2017 !!  Fondly remembering all the fun we had at the reunion sharing memories from our past.  Can't wait to do it again.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Barb Mattes

Classmate Alan Delucy passed away Monday at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart in Dunmore. Alan was a wonderful person, a great father, who loved life and was a great friend. In my last conversation with Al at Hospice , he said he was glad he made the 45th class reunion. He also thanked me for being a friend, which made me shed a few tears. We reminisced about all the good times we had with classmates John Iwasko, Tony Magioli, and myself. Life is fleeting...It go's by in the blink of an eye....We should all be thankful to God; for what we have...... Rudy Gergel 

May the spirit of the season bring you closer to those whom you cherish so much

 

Wishing all my  classmates a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!   

 

Laurie

 

Enjoy!

Thank you classmates from each and everyone of us on the reunion committee for helping to make our reunion a success! We had a blast!! 
When we started planning our 45th reunion a year ago...I posted a quote that also seems fitting post reunion:

Life gives us brief moments with another....but sometimes in those brief moments we make memories that last a lifetime!

All the best,
Laurie

Who Remembers the EAGLE EYE ?? I will bring some of my personal Memorabilia collection to the reunion, but I'm sure you won't have the time to really appreciate or read some things. SOOOOO - I'm attaching the November 1969 EAGLE EYE edition. Read thru it all - some fun stuff in there ! Enjoy! So much is "coded" by first name and last name initials....I'm sure it was to protect our identities ! Please ENJOY !!

Go to the PHOTO GALLERY and look under Barb Mattes to read our wonderful Newsletter from '69.

What's in YOUR MEMORABILIA stash???

WOW !  It hardly seems that long ago that I was having a soda and sandwich at the CHARL-MONT and shopping in the Globe Store for Christmas gifts for my high school girlfriends and boyfriends!  This spectacluar video brought back so many memories, and even as the woman doing the documentary was describing the location of each area in the store, I was already picturing it in my head.

Enjoy! Just an FYI, it is 12 minutes long, but beautiful!

What a Wonderful Wednesday memory !!

We've got 12 already signed up for the ALMA MATER tour!!  And YES there are 2 elevators in the building for those who would like to use that for the tour.

I can't WAIT to see my old homeroom - 211 - I wonder if Mr. Vince Chickillo's spirit will still be in the room!!

So, if you haven't already signed up to take the tour, do it now !  You don't want to miss the memories.

And be sure to get your Checks to LAURA for the reunion that evening.  I can't wait to see everyone.

I have been working on confirming obituaries of our deceased classmates and post them on the IN MEMORY section of the webpage.

If anyone is aware of a classmate who has passed away and is not on the list, please email me with their name.  Only the administrators of the site can add this information at this time

If you have an obituary and can scan it to me in an email, that would be great.  I am compiling all the ones that I have currently, and putting it in a folder for anyone who wants to review it.

Thank you all for your help!!  AND dont forget to contact anyone that you're still in touch with and ask them to join this website!
