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.
