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!

THE SHOCKING REUNION IMAGES FACEBOOK DOES NOT WANT YOU TO SEE!
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.

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:
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
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!
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!
