Saw the nice picture - which one was Scibelli?

Andy retired as president from STCC and was in a condo on Mulberrry St. Both he and his wife worked at STCC.

Regina probabaly has some association with the Classical building . Contacting the management there might render her contact information. She was at a gathering there last year.

Last I heard, Terry Regina actually lived in the Classical condos.  She was with the Springfield School Department (at least as acting head at one point).  They may have contact information, as well.

Terry Regina is President of Historic Classical (museum, events, author talks, etc.), a non-profit agency. I am on the board. We meet at Classical Condos. I see Terry often. She doesn't live in the condos (she lives in Springfield though), but I do.  Shera Cohen

I never had her but I remember her from Forest Park Hunior High.  Did she teach at Classical while we were there?

For the record, I have every Blue and White yearbook from 1959 (when my father Armen started teaching there) till it finally merged with Tech ('86) to become Central High ...

Terry Regina: She went to Classical, then worked admin level for the school dept.

Yearbooks: While our little museum does have every yearbook, some are in disrepair, so if anyone would like to donate, the books would be very welcome. Thanks.

I am sorry I won't be at our 50th reunion this weekend - it's a pretty long way from Greensboro, North Carolina to Springfield.  I do wish everyone the best and will be thinking of those who made it to the reunion (I'll drink a beer or maybe 2 on Saturday in your honor) and of course those who have passed.  I look back at those days at Classical as good years.  If any of our classmates ever get down here to Norht Carolina, the welcome mat is out.

Hi Tom,

I would have loved to see you here, but I completely realize the distance/travel factors.
I'll hoist a beer to you in hopes for the future.
Be well.

Hi everyone,  I cannot make the reunion this weekend-hate to miss it; had a great time at our last one. I'm sure a good time will be had by all!  Say, Tom, maybe we should have a mini one for all us Southerns!   Karen

Hello All.

Sorry I won't be able to make the Reunion either (Oregon is even further than North Carolina!) Too many irons in the fire, and not enough time!

Sad to be missing the reunion this weekend.

 However, tomorrow, May 20, is my wife's 65th birthday. The family is planning a big celebration. Have to keep my younger trophy wife of 40+ years happy!

 We had to miss the last reunion because of the birth of a grandchild.  Best wishes to everyone, and hopefully can make the next one!

Roberta Scougall (Nadeau)

The reunion was WONDERFUL!!  It was so well planned and provided a perfect chance for classmates to meet and greet and catch up and learn about our travels and growth over the 50 years...what fun!   A HUGE thank you to the ladies who organized this event - Cheryl, Susan, Sherri and Roberta - your efforts were truly appreciated.

John Gurvitch

I just want to completely and emphatically agree with Roberta Scougall (Nadeau) !!
Especially to thank those who were involved in the planning, their efforts came to fruition in a wonderful event, one that was a joy to attend.   Susan Greenberg Rose spoke about the future of maintaining some sort of website presence for our class.  and asked for volunteers to step in or up to take over from her in the future.  I don't know if there was any response to her request, but I would suggest that some of us make a committment to contribute $10 towards the annual fee to maintain a site, for lets say the next five, or some number of years.  I have some limitations, but would be willing to work with one or a few others to work on keeping the site updated and functioning etc.  I would certainly be willing to commit $10 a year for at least five years.  From what Susan said, we could get by with such a committment from 15 to 20 folks.  Just a thought.    Susan said that this site is paid only through August of this year, so think hard and think fast.  *g*

It was great to see so many familiar faces, and to chat with as many as I could get to.
Thanks to everyone who attended, you all were part of making it such a wonderful night.
and so many of you look so great all these years later!!  Way to go!!

John G's idea to keep the site going is excellent - he sounds more sensible than I remember him (just kidding John!).  I have no IT skills to contribute but would be glad like John to contribute financially.  Also hope some photos from the reunion will be posted on the site - at least after touch up work to make all look good.

Although I wan't there, compliments to Cheryl, Susan, Sherri and Roberta and others involved  for organizing the reunion, establshing and maintaining the website and basically keeping the class of 1967 fires burning.  It is no suprise that the women in our class are doing all the good work in that regard!
