...and the Saga continues

    CCHS Class of '62 

Reunion July 13 & 14, 2012


Fifty years ago, we all lived in and around the little communities that included the Clarkstown Central School District.  Now,  2012, returning back  to our roots, only a handful still live in what we used to call  'home'.

Traveling from California, Oklahoma, Florida, Arkansas, Texas Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee, etc. was quite a journey for many. But whether you still live close by like Harriet (Muller)  and Jim Amorese, or far away like Donna (Norbo) and Bob Kay... 

...our Sentimental Journey continues.   


Thanks to Lillian's research and creative abilities, we can see on the map that she made where many of our '62 classmates now reside. 



Familiar faces - far left,  Marilyn (Herguth)  Lucas, and second from right, Barbara Bischoff.

Clara (Harp) White offers the emotional closing words...


... and receives a grand  applaud.



The evening ended too quickly!  Richard  Danis adds a few closing words and the evening ended with smiles and miles of memories!


But it wasn't over yet.  Many gathered for breakfast before their final, "Auf Wiedersehen" 

(Until we meet again!)



At breakfast, Fran (Servidio) Raucci and Judy (Jackson) Weiland recall some good memories of West Nyack.



Glenda and Donna chat over breakfast.


... and Gloria. Gloria didn't need the T-shirt to make her statement.  Gloria certainly loves life! Her smile proves it, and so does the smile she put on many of our faces!!  Thanks Gloria - we all needed that!



Gloria and Lillian.




Whose that in background????? Who knows, but the familiar faces are Merrilee (Goldsmith) and husband Tod Brown.


After breakfast on Sunday, we all headed home filled with a bit more love for CCHS and our class - the CCHS Class of '62.
