Thanks for the January 1939 scans go to Joyce Vander Bogart now Joyce Stanga! “My mother was Betty Auger and I was Joyce Van der Bogart. Her good friend and classmate Ruth Lehmann had a daughter Sylvia Warren who was in my class in 1960. My friend and classmate Judy Hermann married Charlie Therrien who was also in our class. His mother was Stephanie Kruck who was in the class of 1940. This is sort of like genealogy, isn't it?”

We will be having a 40th reunion October 9, 2010 at the Berkshire Hills Country Club on Benedict Road

pmolinari@curtisschool.org

 

Thanks - Steve Miller (Miller Supply - West Street where the Adams super market used to be!) is the local contact for our Class (1970) if anyone asks. 

 

We have been doing a joint reunion with Taconic and St. Joe since the 20th reunion in 1990 and it's been a great success.  We started this because really THS and PHS were one school until our senior year so everyone felt that it was only the right thing to do and we thought it would be fun. 

 

When some of the St. Joe people heard what we were planning with THS they asked if they could join too because planning a reunion with such a small group was not working very well for them. And now we only do joint reunions and have a blast. 

 

Anyways, thanks again and take care,

Patty
