Lesley's Back

August 10, 2016, Westwood, NJ - One of the great things about our recent reunion is how it truly reunited many of us, and how we have kept in touch with each other since.  Recently, Lesley Goddin stopped by for a visit, and was joined by Bob Zorowitz, John Murano, Bob Hubbard, Kathie Schaefer Warner and Karen Arigot O'Reilly for wine, dinner and conversation at the Granita Grille in Westwood.

Reunion Committee Reunites

On Tuesday, November 17, the Reunion Committee met to discuss plans for Reunion XLV in 2020.  Okay, let's not get ahead of ourselves! In actuality, we got together for some wine, cheese and good conversation, as the reconnecting expreience enjoyed by us in the planning of our Big Event has now extended beyond.  As for the reunion refresher in October 2016, we won't start working on those details until sometime next year.

Meanwhile, we are coming close to both the one year anniverary of the launching of our website on Novmeber 26, 2014 as well as our 10,000th visitor.  We now have 9,905 visitors as of this writing.  That means that we have had an average of more than 27 web hits per day. Not bad for a surviving class of about 280!

Picture #8 will make your jaw drop.

Well, not really.  But we have some photos Lesley took that to our knowledge, have not yet been posted on Facebook.  So far, we have only Saturday afternoon posted here.  We'll post more in the coming days.

In the meantime, we've figured a way to make the pictures in our gallery larger, so you don't have to squint or go running for your glasses.

More photos on the way

We just received close to 100 reunion photos, which Lesley sent us after she arrived home.  We are presently sorting them and plan to post them here shortly,  We hope to be able to scoop Facebook on this one!

Good news and a word of thanks from Laura Neff Casselman

Laura is one of three classmates whose health issues prevented them from attending our 40 year reunion, and for whom we circulated a card to express appropriate wishes.  Laura has good news to report, and a word of thanks and appreciation.

Dear Pascack Valley Classmates,

I am truly honored and elated that my high school classmates remembered me and provided much appreciated prayers and well wishes during my battle with various health issues.

After a long year of different diagnoses, and surgeries to include mixed connective tissue disease, a thymoma, (cancer of the thymus), gall bladder surgery, pancreatitis, and finally a surgery for a pylorus-sparing pancreaticoduodenectomy, or the whipple surgery. I’m happy to report that I’m clean and cancer free!!
When you think about it it’s an amazing time that we live in. With early detection, and intervention many lives will be spared, as was mine!  I went into this with a positive attitude, and lots support, and prayers from family, work, and friends, to include former HS classmates so I had no worries…. I knew I was going to beat this thing!!!   I’m still recovering, and it’s hard for me to be still but I’m trying!
Again thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes.   The composition notebook you all sent me with your thoughts is incredibly heartwarming!  I was happy to re-connect at the 35th and I’m certainly looking forward to getting re-acquainted at the 45th! Amen!!!  
To John and all the others that put the reunion together congratulations for such an amazing turn out, and for not forgetting any details!
Laura (Neff) Casselman

A message from Suzy Hering and Bob Alacci

As those who attended the Reunion Saturday October 17, 2015 are aware,we signed and sent a card out to each of three classmates who would have joined us for the festivities, but were unable to do so due to health reasons.  

This is what we received in response from Suzy Hering and Bob Alacci:

Hi everyone!

It looks like you had a terrific time! I just wanted to thank all of you especially John for sending me such a sweet remembrance of the event. I got a "yearbook" style card in the mail yesterday with all of your great well wishes! It really touched my heart.  I can't tell you how special that is!

Thank you all so much for "missing me"! Just so you know I am making an amazing recovery and my doctors are shocked and in awe! Guess its hard to keep a fighter down as I have proved to them over and over again. I do miss you all and my old home town- and eagerly look forward to see you all at the next reunion or before!

Take Care!



I just got today's mail.....WOW, what an unbelievably thoughtful and so so meaningful gift I found in the card you had generated and signed by great, kind and wonderful class mates, FRIENDS!

I am so taken aback by the whole thing, and to hear from and just see some of the names - I just can't tell you how great it made me feel and how genuinely touched I am by the comments and well wishes!!  I must have read the card and comments 20 times in a row when I opened it.  What a great group of friends to have taken time out in the evening to send personal well wishes my way!!!  Wow did it bring me back, not only to High School, but from some, way back to elementary school back in good old River Vale!!  Unbelievable - I will treasure that card and all the comments by such great people.

If there is a way, Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved.....I had a huge smile while reading it - from just the thoughtfulness of all and the fun memories that others brought up - Means a lot!!!!!!

I am doing good - and making the best of great things I have in my life, most of all my family - Then of course everyone who reached out and all my friends - Very lucky! So what a great thing you and others did on my behalf, and please know how very much I appreciate it and how moved I was .....seriously I don't even know what to say to express how wonderful it made me feel and how grateful I am to all -Unbelievable, WOW!

My Best,

The friends we loved and lost


Those who attended the main event on October 17 were moved by the tribute to our lost classmates produced by Bob Zorowitz. The images touched our hearts and for a moment, we felt the presence of those who were taken from us way too soon.    


The video montage tribute can be seen here.  


Check out the Warrior Yearbook from 1972, 1974 and 1975.
