The Nostalgic Forward
We will be putting out a monthly newsletter, but so that we don't bore those
who are not interested, this and possibly one right before the reunion are
the only two you will receive via email. This and future monthly newsletters
will be put onto our website: Class of '56 Celebrates 65 or
http://pong.telerama.com/~joycey/ which we hope you will visit often
and also sign the guest book while you're there.
We've heard from a number of you, and it's wonderful that you have accepted
the electronic age...whether you were dragged kicking and screaming into
it or not (we know a few who were of the former, but they're here). If you
have not already logged onto our website, please do. You'll find a menu which
gives you all the information you need about the reunion, email addresses
of classmates, and picture pages we will continue to add to. Hopefully, you
will check the website often for new information and pictures.
We'd like to invite you to send your pictures in, also. Please send to yours
and I will scan them to the webmaster.
A very important part of the website is the MISSING PEOPLE page. Please check
it to see if anyone you might know the whereabouts of is on it. If so, for
the January class, and students without pictures, please email
Judy Feldstein Smalley, and for
June missing persons..please email Bette
Should you think of anything that is not listed on the website, that you
feel should be, please email me with your suggestions.
The committee has suggested that I leave you with the following important
trivia: Taylor Allderdice is one of the largest of the Pittsburgh Public
Schools' ten traditional urban high schools. The junior high is long gone
from the building, but Allderdice boasts an enrollment of approximately 1,730
students, but we've lost our neighborhood closeness as students are now bussed
in from nine diverse communities. It is still the plum city school; in recent
years its graduates have enrolled in over 80 four-year colleges and universities
as well as thirteen two-year technical/trade/business schools
Again, we on the committee look forward to welcoming you in October to our
collective 65th birthday party.
Again, please check the website for emails of your friends and for our emails
in case you need to contact a member of the committee.
