8/1: I'm right on time this month with birthdays and anniversaries. That hasn't happened in quite a while. Birthdays this month are Dan Schaiewitz, Rose (Blissard) Sarli, and Charlie Patterson. Happy Birthday to you all, and many returns.
We have one anniversary - John and Sue Roger. Congratulations you two!
8/3: There were no drones flying overhead taking reunion pictures. Our official reunion photographer was under the weather, and couldn't make the affair. So, we had to use the skills of our waitress at "The Carriage House" restaurant (the former Colosacco's). Below is the official 58th reunion picture.
From upper left to upper right: Anita (John) DeFrancesco, Tony DeFrancesco, Joe Mantovi, Phyllis (Lunning) Mantovi, Rosemary (Hadden) Decatur, Bob Decatur, Christine (Lacina) Dugas, Dave Dugas, Jim McIntyre, Leah (Knapp) McIntyre, Alan Woermann.
It was great seeing everyone again, and getting caught up.
From front to rear: Rosemary, Phyllis, Joe, Tony, and Anita.

9/1: Well, here we are in the month of September, and the unofficial end of summer. With Dorian upgraded to a category 5 hurricaine, let's all hope for the best for our friends in Florida, and the classmates in the coastal southeastern states.
We have just 1 anniversary, and 1 birthday this month. Dot (Stolzenberger) and Walt Pritchett are celebrating their anniversary. Congrats to you both.
Charlie Van Riper is celebrating his birthday. Many returns, Charlie.
Only other news is, I may have found Behna Vogel, who you may remember was the class salutatorian. I'll let you know (if she responds).
9/6: Guess who came to dinner last night. It's been a while since we've seen them.
Dan modeled the outfit he wears when he works on his book. He says it puts him in the proper frame of mind. Funny, but I don't remember seeing any of the Apollo astronauts wearing a helmet like that.
9/8: On a sad note, Rose (Blissard) Sarli's mother passed away. She was 96 years old. I remember that she baby sat me a couple of times when I was in the 2nd grade. Our thoughts and prayers are for Rose and the family.
10/1: October brings us one anniversary, but no birthdays that I am aware of. Celebrating an anniversary are Kathy (Scanlon) and Richard Smith. Congratulations to both of you. By the way, If anyboy knows about birthdays or anniversaries that I do not include on the website, just send me an e-mail, and I'll be sure to include. My address is: email@example.com
