It was not an easy decision but after making a plane reservation to fly back for the weekend, I cancelled it the following day. We have too much going on as we move forward on building our dream home ( with the concern of the unexpected additional monies that we might need as we build), husband Mark is super busy with fall sports at the college ( he is the head athletic trainer ), and me missing 2 days of school to travel. We have been cleaning out attics and in my box of high school stuff, I found a copy of our senior class will!! What a hoot!


RIP - Samuel C. “Sam” Messina, Sr. - May 28, 2011

I am sad to report that I just received notification, and was able to confirm, that on this same date, May 28, in 2011, marking four years, we lost another classmate. RIP, Sam.


So,you are not coming to the reunion?

If you are not coming to the reunion, you need a good excuse. The following reasons have been tried and are un-acceptable.


Excuse #1: I'm overweight.

Rebuttal: You're not alone. (personally I can still fit into the same earrings I wore in high school)


Excuse #2: I'm a different person than I was in high school

Rebuttal: Lucky for you, we ALL are. Let's face it: we could only have improved.


Excuse #3 I don't look as good as I'd like. I (choose one or more) am bald, have wrinkles, saddlebags, grey hair and no one will recognize me.
Rebuttal: Guess what! You won't recognize anyone else, either. Using the reunion committee as a representative sample, our whole class looks like a "before" photo in a plastic surgery ad.


Excuse #4: I'm not successful. I'm not (choose one or more) a lawyer, a doctor or rich.

Rebuttal: You'll be pleasantly surprised to find how much everyone has matured. We may be plump and wrinkled (see Excuse #3, above) but we're not stupid. Money is not success.


Excuse #5: I was not in a popular clique in school

Rebuttal: Now that we're old and smart, those cliques have dissolved just like the superficiality they were based on. The only cliques you'll notice at the reunion will be the sound of your joints as you walk around.

RIP - Yvonne Ciarlo Selke - 3/24/2015

It is with a very heavy heart that I post this message regarding the loss of our classmate. Yvonne and her daughter were lost on the Germanwings air disaster on Tuesday, March 24th, 2015.

According to Class Quest, she graduated from Springfield Senior High School in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, in 1975. Her maiden name was Ciarlo. She graduated from Gannon University in 1979 and has been named by the school as a consistent contributor. While there she was a member of the club Beta Beta Beta or Tri-Beta and graduated with a bachelors in biology, according to the 1979 yearbook from Gannon.

First Gift!

I think it's probably best to keep these purchases "anonymous" for the most part, but that doesn't mean I can't share. After less than 2 hrs with the "Pay-it-forward" page being "live," we sold our first "Gold Gift," i.e. an $80.00 purchase that will pay for a ticket for someone who'd like to attend, but isn't able to budget the price of a ticket!

The acknowledgement of that purchase went like this:

Dear Joe , it's a joy to help out !!! Thanks for all your hard work ...the check will be put out in the mail tomorrow to the address you listed !!! Have a nice day and hope to be able to get there to see everyone!

Thank you very much "you know who you are!"

Way back when, in 1973, I had the opportunity to ask Robin out for my very first "official date".  We didn't live too far from each other - the common point was St Matthews Church on Harwicke Rd.  Spending time in homeroom together made the friendship a bit easier.  My first memory was meeting her at St Matts and comparing the plastic ring sizers for our Senior Class rings - can you imagine that being a first date now?  We sat on the church steps talking about nothing for a long time. We ended up actually going to a movie together - Paper Moon.  How unprepared you are at that age to be prepared was frightening in retrospect.  Our young romance never lasted but our friendship did and it re-kindled in the last year with fun and honest retrospective memories of our youth.  My prayers and admiration for you and your family are offered.  Your legacy is already intact. How seemingly easy it is to remember but not put in the time to make new memories.  Let this be a lesson for the class of 75- we are not getting any younger and our plan may not be the one that is followed.  Reach out!

My love for those closest make each day a miracle

How nice to see so many from so long ago and heart breaking for those whom have gone.......

Another Classmate Gone Home to The Father

RIP - Robin Baltzer-Milone - 11/09/2014

I don't know Robin well enough to eulogize her and far be it for me to do so anyway. I can only say that news of her passing hit me very hard as I am a cancer survivor and, deep down, I fear its return. However, outwardly, I believe that others so afflicted will survive as well. To hear news to the contrary, especially as quickly as it was made public, is personally devastating. I remember Robin as a gorgeous, wholesome, fun, flirty, smart and all-round friendly person. I feel overwhelming sadness for her young children who will grow-up without their mother and for her husband, who, by all accounts, found his soul-mate. Robin, you will be missed. RIP.
