710:  Hi all.  I'm back after quite a bit of time off.  Sorry to those of you who use the website for info.  Fact is, In January, I was diagnosed with cancer in my mouth, and all my priorities changed.  I went through 7 weeks of radiation, and chemo, and am still waiting for results.  I have my PET scan to see the results later this month.
   Since all this started, I've missed quite a few birthdays and anniversaries.  Sorry to those of you I missed, but best wishes to all of you.
   This month, we have 3 anniversaries - Happy anniversary wishes to Charlie and Sandy Van riper, Mike and Ethlyn Finnerty, and Charlie and Linda Patterson.
   We have 3 birthdays as well-  Happy birthday to Leah (Knapp) Mcintyre, Joe Mantovi, and Betty (Castegner) Montgomery.  Many returns.   

7/11:  I just learned recently that Betty Jo (Castegner) Montgomery passed away on June 30th after a bout with cancer.  Keep her in your thoughts, and prayers.

8/03:  We have 3 birthdays, and 1 anniversary this month.  Celebrating their anniversary are John and Sue Roger.  May you celebrate many more to come.  Birthdays this month are Charlie Patterson, Rosemarie Sarli, and Dan Schaiewitz.  Happy birthday, and may you all have many returns.

   I had some good news.  I had my full body scans last week, and my oncologist declared me to be cancer free.

9/03:  We have a birthday this month.  Happy birthday to Charlie Van Riper, and may you have many returns.
   With all the problems NASA is having with the Artemis rocket, I think we need to get Dan Schaiewitz out of retirement, and back to Canaveral to get things straightened out.

10/5:  We have just one anniversary this month.  Hapy anniversary to Kathi   (Scanlon) and Richard Smith.  May you enjoy many more.

10/10:  Got some sad news yesterday.  Christine's (Lacina) husband, Dave Dugas passed away.  Funeral arrangements are in the planning stage.  Keep Christine in your thoughts and prayers.  Dave will be missed.

11/12:  Received some sad news.  Bill Goscinski passed away on Nov. 4.  Keep Margaret in your thoughts and prayers.  Bill will be missed.

12/4: We have 2 birthdays, and 3 anniversaries this month.  Celebrating birthdays will be Marlene, and yours truly.  Celebrating anniversaries will be Clark and Joanne, Marlene and Ken, and Rosemary and I.
Hard to believe 2022 is almost over.  Hopefully, so will also be Covid - enough is enough!

12/26:  Received an email from Charlie van Riper.  He has a new email address.  I edited the directory on this website.   His new address is -

1/10:  Sorry I'm late, but the webite was having problems, and I couldn't publish.  At any rate, things are now working,  We have2 birthdays this month - Dan Baumgartner, and Mike Finnerty (the youngest members of our class).  Happy birthday to you both, and may you have many returns.
Also, a Happy New Year to all of you.  May 2023 bring you good health, and much happiness.

1/28:  Rose and I are on our annual trip to the south.  Went on a cruise with Leah (Knapp) and Jim Mcintyre.

There were over 50 people from Mahopac on the cruise.  Started out as a class reunion, and grew to include many others from different classes.  The  organizers are thinking about doing it again next year.  Might be something to consider.  I'll keep you informed.

We had our own T-shirts, so we could identify the alums on the cruise.  Got together for happy  hour every afternoon.  (Not everyone showed up for the pic.)

Also on our trip, we got together with Dot and Ed Pescatore, and Jim and Janet Breidster,  Some of you may remember them.  They were also Mahopac alums, but a few years behind us in school.
