Another unique picture and article from the
past. Last person named was Richard Maine. Note the "smerk" on Dwan's
face...wonder what he was thinking ??? Some of these folks had some good ideas;
ideas we could sure use today !!!
And just when we thought that the pictures couldn't get
any worse, I was provided with the news articles and photos below !!! Only
kidding !! Didn't they look great ! You'll see some old familiar names in the
BELOW: Surprise meeting... a "mini" reunion so to speak, was held at
Casille's Restaurant, Burlington, July 26, 2009. I guess I was the surprise as
Kaye, Marlene, and Gayle did not know I was coming. Heather and I had planned
to meet with Marlene a few weeks ago but all finally came together today. I
felt like a rose amongst thorns in this picture, but in reality I was the thorn
amoung roses. It was really fun and presented just a sampling of what all will
experience at this upcoming "reunion of a lifetime" ! Just in case, L-R, Gayle
Adorno Campbell, Kaye Lovallo Coddington, Jack Wallace, Marlene Piccolo
Salvatore and Heather Yale Gromko.
There have been lots of emails
between this threesome below. Marlene and I (Jack) were at St Francis together.
I'm pleased to report that she's as much trouble now as she was back then, some
54 years ago !! Heather and I work hard to keep Marlene in line !!
Wow ! Check out this photo sent to me by Ted
Zoli. St Francis School Graduation 1955. Some of those identified include Ted
Zoli, Bob Williston, Alan Guilmart, Dave Frauenhofer, Herb Lehman, Bob Landry,
Ed Ryan and one obscure member. Note the classic cars in the background and the
"white buck" shoes ! This truly is a great shot ! Thanks, Ted !!
Shown below, some

Familiar faces during good times !!
