I had Mr. Karr for Drivers Ed and Mr. Grammar for English. Whoever did the hiring over there had a good sense of humor.

If I could do it all over again I would spend less time driving to and from basketball games, drunk, on bald tires, in the snow.

Soon I want to post a list of Class of 1968 Classmates that I can't find a clue on their current location. I'm thinking that the combined 68/69 roster might have some clues to offer. Plus if you guys can scan the list of classmates and see some names that haven't signed up, please contact them if you have an address or phone number. Class of 69 would do well to start a search early. Thanks, see ya in October! D. Jones, 68 Search Guy

YOUR ASSISTANCE IS REQUESTED! My search is now done. Thank you Chairmarm, Nancy Ferris and Hotelier, Gary Brown for the support and encouragement. Scott Hill, I want to compare notes with you at the BIG event ... October 12-13! I used, Zaba, Findpeople and Peoplefinder to get addresses for missing Classmates with the same name and age (67-68). I then wrote, emailed or called them on the phone (some were found on Facebook). So ... if you can locate any of these people please do so. Some of of people got the letter or phone call and didn't sign up? If the letter or email didn't return to me I assumed they got the message but I don't know for sure. You may want to look at  the Classmates profile to the left and review for names of people that have not yet signed up. A green check or another mark indicates that they are signed up. If they don't sign up then we can't contact them. OK ... here is my list of "still missing/no clue." PS some are deceased and we will update that list at the reunion. Sorry, a bit out of order. PS CALL PITTSFORD SCHOOLS AND REQUEST A COPY OF THEIR RECORDS ...RE: OFFICIAL 1969 CLASS GRADUATES. I HAD TO FILE A FOIA BUT THEY DIDN'T CHARGE ME FOR A COPY. IT'S TOO CONFUSING HAVE THE TWO CLASSES ON ONE LIST. YOU'D BE SUPRISED HOW MANY KIDS YOU GREW UP WITH ENDED UP IN ANOTHER GRADUATING CLASS AND HOW MANY OLDER KIDS ENDED UP IN YOUR CLASS ... NOW GET TO WORK!

DJ, I would love to hear your band! If I lived closer I might be a able to attend more of your  concerts.

Forever an optomist, I sent my check to Pam for Suzie and I to attend a while back. It's not like we can get a reservation at Eddie's Chop House as it is no more. Thank for you fine detective work on behalf of the class of PCS '68!

For Dan Goodenow.... Dan, here's a link to my old boy scout group.... It met behind one of the Brighton Schools.  Some of the other members of Tay House Troop 19 included Tom May, John Webster, Stephen Satterwhite, and several others... (my memories are a bit dim on the "Boy Scout years").    Hope to see you in October at the Class Reunion!!

Dan Goodenow

For Doug Allen:

Doug, thanks for writing.  It's been a while since I ahve contacted anyone on this site.  That's great you guys are planning the 50th. I'll try to attend, but I can't make any promises.  I've retired from my architectural job in Boston, but am continuing my own practice that I've had over many years.  Additionally, I've taken on a part-time at Lehey Hospital in Burlington, MA as a transporter.  I start next week.  With this new schedule, I'll have to see how my variuos schedules work out before I can plan any excursions.

Why a transporter you may ask?  Well, about 9 months ago, I had to end my recreational ice hockey because I received a concussion and being on blood thinners due to my Factor V Leiden, my doctor said it had to end. Needing more physical exercise to make up for it, and looking around for a job that would provide some exercise instead of my wicked passive, sit on my butt, architectural computer face time, I considered being a pizza delivery guy, (a combination of walking and driving), and also interviewed for a job at Home Depot on the freight dock.  The same day of that H D interview, I scored the transporter job.  My new boss assured me I'd be doing a lot of walking!

Having worked in a large hospital in Philly years ago, I'm looking forward to the exercise and being a part of a new team.  Also helping out folks in their time of need can't be overlooked. One of the more difficult things in this process was to put a resume and cover letter together for the first time in about 20 years; especially for a new job category.  I had to play down the design abilities and stress the team work, getting along with people and other basic attributes.  I was very lucky that my former co-workers bailed me out with good references, (so they say) :)

As for the scouts back in Pittsford, I do remember Danny Kropp and I joining a troop in Bushnell's Basin. Bob Legge, Jim Womeldorf and Greg Wolf, I believe were in a troop in Pittsford.  Kropp earned the rank of Life and was senior patrol leader.  I only made it to the rank of Star.  We lasted thru 8th grade and then football, other sports and our band, (Lastraws and later The Sound Brewery), took over our time.  Looking at your group of former troop members, maybe there was something in scouting that made a bunch of us join rock cover bands.  Funny, I never got the music merit badge!  :)

As for the last reunion, I really enjoyed sitting next to Scott Hill, visiting with Wendy and of course seeing Ellen again.  Her conversation was heart-felt.

Time in a bottle....


PS:  I hope Scott was able to follow his Northeastern Hockey Team this year.  They had a great season agian!

Kathy, I was not able to come but I wanted to express appreciation for your work with the website and related emails. I have that role with a couple of my volunteer organizations, and it can be thankless at times!

Alice J. (Aj. ) Zissler

Kathy L, I ditto Nancy in that you did such a fine job administering the website with excellent communications, especially for those of us who could not attend.  You could compete with Bill Gates! Ha, ha. A big Thank You! And to the entire committee and Margo too for the photos. It was so fun to see everyone virtually from afar! I hope to make the next reunion. AJ

Patti Leonard (Perkins)

For Margo,

Thank you for your diligence in capturing, it looks like, everyone at Dave Ferris' Friday night get together.  Your pics made me realize how many people I completely missed.  I regret not catchng up with you because it seems from FB that you have had a wonderful ride the last 50 years.  I also missed catching up with Jude Ellis, Dave Ferris, Bill Carpenter, Tom May, Bill Hoyt, Charlie Anderson and any number of others.  But I guess that is what the 75th will be for.  Thanks again for posting.

David Ferris

Patti, I don't  think we can wait till the 75th! Hopefully we will have a 55th, if not sooner.

Guys, Now I feel I miss not coming.  Had to work the weekend.  Boston did attend the Friday night gathering and represented me.  :)  He said it was a blast.  Count me in for the 55th.

I am certainly hoping we can come together as a class very soon... maybe 2024!

Love You All,

So sorry to have missed the class of '68's reunion last year, but we were out of the country.  Photos were great and it looked like everyone had a wonderful time.

I noticed in one of the posts that someone mentioned meeting in Florida.  We are there on the west coast for most of the winter (and in Washington DC for the rest of the year).  If there is any interest in having a reunion there, I would love to know.

I hope all is well with everyone.  See you in 2043, if not before.

Dear friends,  just want to let you know Patrick Owen has been diagnosed with stage 4 renal CA  His diagnosis is most likely terminal  Average lifespan 18-24 months  His oncologist said because he is in excellent health up to 5 years is possible  They are trying some new therapies that directly target the CA cells  The CA was discovered when he bent over to lace up his ski boot and his femur spontaneously fractured  He underwent major surgery to fix leg  They are waiting for leg to heal before starting tx for CA  Pat is basically upbeat and positive about the future His strong faith in Christ and amazing family support is helping him through  I'm sure he would appreciate all prayers for God's will concerning his future  Thank you, and God bless   Kerry Hoerner Bovenzi
