Reunion plans: What if not a Summit-elementary-school student?
I notice that "later Saturday afternoon" there will be "private" parties for each of the elementary-schools' classmates. What about all the people who came to Summit after 1952?
Do we get an open invitation to go party hopping between any and all the "private" parties?
Do we band together and have our own (and I might add, better) party?
By the way, are there any '58 classmates that now live in or near Summit AND didn't go to a Summit elementary school?

Doug, that would be me for sure! I came in 1953 and attended elementary school in Maplewood. I must say though, cramming too much in on Saturday, for me in particular, will just detract from my stamina and pleasure at Saturday night's festivities. I also will have things to tend to at home during that time. I know, I'm a "party-pooper." Perhaps if I was visiting or single I would cram all I could into that time, but beings I am neither I guess I don't qualify for the party hopping plans. Also, if I were single I would probably say "come on" over to all those who wish to stop by and have a great party before the Saturday night get-together. But then again, I am not, so such is life. I think you do have a grand idea though and good luck with your non-Summit elementary school party. --Georgi

I moved from Ohio to New Providence in 1951. At the last reunion the New Providence kids had a very nice get together at the Murray Hill Inn in NP. In January when I made the hotel reservations for the class, I checked their facilities and am hoping someone who still lives there will make the arragements for an NP get together. If not, I will and you are more than welcome to join us. More is always better! Donna

Donna, --------- That sounds good. Let's stay in touch as we get closer to October.
I live in Ohio now - half way between Youngstown & Pittsburgh - right on the state line. Where were you living before moving to Jersey? ------------- Doug

Donna:

Befor you start to invite classmates that were not from New Providence you better check this with your New Providence classmates. I'm not certain which reunion it was but Yanacone and I crashed the gathering that was held in Murray Hill and if I remember we were not welcome! We were told that it was only for the New Providence folks and we left! So, be careful what you say . . .

Doug, if your reading this we will find something to do or someplace to go . . . perhaps we can party at Yanacone's apartment, I know he is always ready for a party!

Bye Bye

Good point, Tony. It sounds like you didn't go to a Summit Elementary school. Is that right?

Doug/Donna:

I was born at Overlook Hospital, went to Washington School, Summit Jr. High and of course SHS. If you can find me I am in the pictures shown in the photo album section. I'll give you a hint . . . 2nd grade, look for the best looking young man . . . he has his hand on his chin and since I was the teachers pet, I'm next to Mrs. Ackermen! I think that's how you spell it!

Check it out . . .

Hi Doug, I grew up on the west side of Cleveland and still have cousins there. Donna

Tony, Yes, you were a very cute second grader. I taught 2nd and 3rd grade and I know that teacher's usually put students who might be disruptive next to them. I wonder if Mrs. Achermen may have wanted to keep a special eye on you? Donna

Tony, I am sorry you and Mike were not welcomed at the
NP gathering and you are probably correct that I should not invite people who did not live in New Providence. However, I can invite you both to visit here at Elm Tree Farm. Donna

The word private is the hang up. The intent, as I suggested this, was to allow time to reacquaint with elementary school friends so that Fri/Sat eves could spend more time with other school friends. Also a few classmates who dropped out are planning on attending. It isn't a big deal and don't make it into one. If you didn't go to elementary school and there are enough of you, maybe we can have a step child party, or you can get adopted by someone going to a party. Or, being really lucky, you can use the downtime for a nap. And if you went to more than one elementary school, try to get to both! Image

A picture can be worth more than a thousand words! You're right - something will work out. I get the point about letting grade-school mates get all talked out Sat. afternoon, so they will talk to others Sat. night and Sun. morning. --------------- Doug

doug, just go to one or more of the parties given by summit if that is your town where u went to school. i am sure u will be welcome. i was bussed up to summit from new providence and still in the surrounding area of north plainfield. i can remember how excited many of my classmates and myself were about attending summit high, the big school, and looking forward to meeting and making new friends! and tony, i think donna is right about teachers keeping the disruptive children by their side!

Hi Becky . . .cute as ever! You know that I was a very well behaved kid in high school. I know this is true because I always sat in the back of the class at SHS . . . no teacher wanted me close to them!

Happy Thanksgiving . . .

Best Regards,

Tony
