SVCS Class of 1946 Reunites

On June 28th, 2011, the class of 1946 celebrated its 65th class reunion at Quack’s Diner in Madison, New York.  Our guest and speaker was Barb Clark, Mayor of Madison.  She is looking forward to the 200th celebration of the village of Madison and said there wouldn’t be any tax increase again this year to the residents of the village.

Only five class members attended this year with spouses and/or a dear friend.  Gordon Chafee, Shirley Tucker, Charlotte Strong, Jean Oman and Earl Wright.  Bob Jacobs, Mildred Schreak, Helen Marshall, Alma Highers and Claude Roher didn’t attend for health reasons.

After a fine meal and much conversation about our experiences after all the years since our graduation, we decided we would keep meeting each year.  I handed out a rose to each lady that attended.  My daughter Sandy attended and took many pictures during the meeting which we will share.  Sandy has completed thirty-nine years of teaching in the sam school system and plans on teaching one more year before retiring.

We also agreed that we are proud to have graduated from SVCS especially during the war years of the forties and to have had wonderful teachers.

Class Reunions are a Wonderful Experience By Earl Wright (Class of 1946)

On September 8, 2010, our Class of 1946 met at Quack’s Diner for our second class reunion.  Our first being our 60th in 2006.  After introductions all around, I announced my special guest, Barb Clark, Mayor of Madison, NY.  She spoke of her mother also being a a graduate from Stockbridge High in 1946.

After our luncheon Maxine and I gave a red rose to all who attended.  Each class member gave a brief bio of their life such as family and work experiences.

I handed out a copy of our class poem, class prophecy, and our school’s Alma Mater.  Gordon read the class poem which he had written.  Also, we had him read the Class Prophecy which we all enjoyed.  We sang our Alma Mater which was great to do again after being out of school all these years.  When you think about it, sixty-four classes have graduated since 1946 from SVCS.

The following members attended: Robert, Gordon, Charlotte, Alma, Mildred, Jean and Earl.  Because of health reasons, Helen wasn’t able to attend so we all signed a Get Well card for her. 

After hugs and handshakes, we all agreed to meet again next year.
