P.S. duPont 50th Reunion — Bobbi Silver Cohn

After two months, still wonderful memories of a great weekend!
Photos by Bobbi Silver Cohn, additional captions by Marlene Taub Reinschmidt
Edited and produced by Fred Kagel

One of the captions reads “Vent?” Read the comment below from Paul Simpson who explains that the vent is/was not a vent. Besides, the real vents were on the floor underneath the seats of the auditorium — just one more piece of the memories puzzle solved.

The other comment is from Harold Meyers, who enjoyed Bobbi’s photo show so much that he submitted some of his on pictures towards the reunion photo collection.

Go here to just view the still photos.

Remember and enjoy!

P.S. Greasers (1961)

Hot cars, hot chicks, Priscilla, Kelly’s. We didn’t have that in AZA … or did we? Yes, come to think of it, we did have some wild and crazy guys…but Ray Richardson, apparently was in a class all by himself… and he’s still cruisin’!

Ray, keep making us smile!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Forwarded from Edeltraud & Jürgen Thewes:

Dear Friends and Classmates of the Class of 1959,

Edeltraud and I want to wish you and your dear families a Happy Thanksgiving.

We came back on the 11th, had enjoyed that wonderful reunion party at the Doubletree Hotel and at Harry’s. Thank you all again for that outstanding organization and banquet. We still feel overwhelmed by the many meetings with you all. It is so great to have friends that we estimate so much. We certainly appreciated your invitations, talks, and gifts. Thank you again for everything that made our stay an unforgettable one.

We learned that Thanksgiving means thanking your friends, too. So let us express our joy and happiness about our experiences with you. Time wasn’t adequate to exchange and deepening thoughts, opinions, reports, but we were enriched by meeting you.

Have a great Thanksgiving with your families and friends. And Season’s greetings.

Cordial greetings

Edeltraud & Jürgen Thewes

I Remember …

Cod-liver oil.

A Q&A in today’s paper reminded me of gobbling down many a teaspoon of cod-liver oil. The questioner states, “I took cod-liver oil in the late 1930s and early 1940s when I was a kid. In the 40s, a new form of cod-liver oil was introduced … called the sunshine pill.”

“Most make a face at the recollection,” the writer replies. “Cod-liver oil in those days was rich in vitamin D, vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids. Nowadays, cod-liver oil is easier to take, but vitamin D and some of the vitamin A may be removed during the purification process.”

I am told by my father that I actually liked cod-liver oil. In spite of my taking that stuff as a kid, I acquired the nickname, “Fregile,” having broken my bones several times.

What does the marker say?

Marlene Taub Reinschmidt noticed that there seems to be a marker in the grass at the front walkway entrance of the school. Wonder what it says?

Where’s our class tree?

Phylis Simione Williams, Cynthia Jobling, Ron Horseman posed as tree branches after 45th Reunion, October 2004.

November 2009, Gretchen Gravell Broadwater suggests we get together sometime with Lincoln Hohler, the current school principal, about searching for the tree and/or marker.  If we can’t locate and have extra funds, perhaps we could plant another tree.  Thoughts?
