Oswego NY 13126 Retired Married 2 Fall Creek, South Hill Met my husband in New York City. Married in Ithaca, First Presbyterian Church. The Army took us to Kansas (friendly but flat) and Stuttgardt, Germany. Back to NYC for Manny to finish NYU. Five great years back in Ithaca, where Manny picked up a Masters, PhD and our son Eric (with some help from me!). I continued to sing everywhere possible. Church choirs in NYC included the fun of soloing for a Ukranian group. In Ithaca I enjoyed the opera group, where my shyness finally started to wear off. Next we moved to snow country, Oswego, NY! Thirty-six years later, we're still here. Added a daughter to the family. The first sabbatic, we four spent a year in Europe. Loved it! The second one was in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, where we stayed an extra year. Up here I went back to church choir, Festival Chorus, and Oswego Opera Theater. I had the luxury of being a stay-at-home Mom, so in my "spare" time I refinished furniture, caned chairs, quilted, did all the needle arts, gardened, canned, led women's groups and Bible studies,...well, it HAS been fifty years! Like everyone, there have been hills and valleys, but I wouldn't trade any of it. Life is good!

Merrimack/Danbury NH 03054 Semi-retired (marketing) Married 2 Cayuga Heights OK, I have delayed too long to add these comments... Along with many of you I went to school at Cornell and graduated in 1964 with a BS in Industrial & Labor Relations. As a member of ROTC I was commissioned in the Army upon graduation and sent off to Ft. Lewis WA to join an artillery unit. My family was there about 3 months before being sent to a training school at Ft. Knox KY for 3 months. Upon my return to WA we went to the field for a month before being shipped to An Khe, RVN in September 1965. Returned to the USA a year later (take off the uniform at the airport and don't mention your military service) and spent about 2 years at Ft. Devens MA before returning to Cornell for an MBA. I took a job in retail store management with jewel Companies (OSCO Drug) for several years before deciding that my family was more important. After being unemployed for some time I joined a wholesale cooperative company involved in the janitorial/sanitary maintenance industry as the marketing department and stayed there for 25 years until they decided it was time for me to "retire" sooner than I intended. So I did retire! I since have returned to the retail industry working for a big box store as a part-timer and am having fun doing sales for going on 9 years working 2-days a week. Over the years I've volunteered for Y Indian Guides, Boy Scouts, run the clock for the hockey team games, participated in the town Conservation Commission, Master Plan and Town Center committees. My interest in conservation and wildlife habitat led me to purchase a forested parcel where i could enjoy the quiet and now I manage it along with additional acres as a sustainable American Tree Farm. In 1995 I attended the initial NH Coverts {pronounced cover with a t} an organization of volunteers working for wildlife and continue to serve on their Advisory Board. Jeanne Saeger, a Home Economics Cornell student, and I were married in 1963 and this year we celebrated our 50th year together. We have 2 sons, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandson all within the immediate area. Lots of family interaction, as a grand daughter currently lives with us and my father in law, now 93, is also close by so many of our gatherings involve five generations! Jeanne works as a para educator in kindergarten and first grade with special needs kids. Guess I will have to send off a new photo as the high school brush cut went away after many years (the swimming coach said I would go faster with short hair) and has been replaced by longer hair, thin in spots, with a good mix of grey and a beard. Of course, I still look no older than 36 even with these changes.(Snoopy says you pick an age you like and stick with it.) My home in Merrimack and my lodge in the woods of Danbury NH are always open to visitors if you are traveling this way. March 2016 we just celebrate our 53 years of being together! It seems like it was just yesterday except we are enjoying our grandson playing Junior A hockey in the eastern division finals and our great grand daughter as she takes her first steps. I am volunteering for three organizations involved in conservation of wildlife and our natural resources an enjoy educating others of all ages - those older than us (!) and recently a group of 4th graders. Doing sustainable forestry and just added a wildlife meadow for bees and butterflies. Hoping the new England group can get together again. Life is great and who of us even thought about being this age and doing what we do?
Updated June2015 - Our second great grandchild, Victoria Lynn, was born shortly before our first great grandson celebrated his third birthday. Send Andy a MessageSend Andy a Message

Spencer NY retired/self-employed Widowed 3 Danby I got married right out of high school (big mistake except for 2 great kids) divorced, then met a wonderful man from Sayre. We had 27 years of a fantastic life, then this wonderful man passed away.

I retired from Cornell in 2004 and opened my own business. The business has been very successful and enjoyable. I have a very busy and full life.

We have five grandsons that love basketball. Watched my grandsons play and they're good!

I love to dance the country couples pattern dances, learning ballroom and swing.

I'm a supporter of ASPCA, Best Friends, local animal shelters,and various rescue groups.

I've always owned horses. Still do! Have four. First day of spring, hopefully sooner, I saddle up and take off. From then until the winter sets in, I travel with a horse club and my horses to different areas to ride. We'll be traveling to Kentucky with the horses this spring. We do a lot of camping with the horses.

Sure is. What do you think of your gradation picture? I hated it. Pierre's, was located on Green St., messed up my hiar royally! Never wore my hair like that and wouldn't.

Osprey FL 34229 Retired programmer/graphic artist/editor Married 2 Inlet Valley Following IHS, I graduated in 1964 from Alfred University in western NYS with a B.A. in Mathematics. Traveler’s Insurance Company (Hartford, CT) immediately hired me as a statistical analyst, but I stayed less than a year because wedding bells were calling. In May 1965 I married Tony Nacinovich, whom I’d met at Ithaca College my junior year. He was starting a successful career at Ogilvy & Mather Advertising (28 years) in NYC and we settled in Tarrytown, NY, where we spent the next 43 years. I joined AT&T as a computer programmer; then moved on to American Airlines SABRE Reservation System (unlimited travel!!!). Our son Mark was born in 1970, just as AA announced its move to Tulsa, so the timing was perfect for me to become a full-time Mom. Two years later our daughter Christy arrived.

I did not rejoin the work force until 1988, but let’s not confuse that with not working! My lifestyle ran the gamut of volunteering – from everything PTA (president; chairing the area’s first Computer Fare in 1983), to Garden Club (presidency for 6 years), to P.E.O. Sisterhood (local chapter president, several state committee chairs, chairing the NYS convention in 1988), to years of fun activities with my family. Whenever I had a spare moment I was sewing or tending my wonderful Tarrytown perennial garden.

My second career was with American Booksellers Association. I did the desktop publishing and design for their weekly newsletter, sent to 10,000 independent booksellers. That newsletter grew into a newspaper and eventually an online publication with new challenges. I thoroughly enjoyed computer design and creativity, and the job I signed on to “for a couple of years” lasted nearly 15!

We retired and moved to Sarasota, Florida two years ago. We are now growing more than 100 orchids on our lanai and we publish the monthly Orchid Society newsletter. We do all the publicity and publishing for the Society and its annual show, which is the largest orchid show on the west coast of Florida.

I have been blessed with good health, a loving and generous husband, and two beautiful children with great partners who gave us 3 darling granddaughters – Macy (6), Sydney (4), Gabriella (1). They live in Las Vegas and New York City, making for good Florida get-away destinations!
I'm looking forward to seeing many of my IHS classmates at The Villages. Send Ellen a MessageSend Ellen a Message

Nashua NH Consulting Hypnotist Married 1 Clymer, NY Central School Since I was not focused and involved in High School, I used the Air Force as a method to find a direction for my life. That's where my future in computers began.

Beginning with vacuum tube systems I worked at Honeywell in Massachusetts designing storage devices. Then a stint in Oklahoma with GE/Control Data designing floppy disks. There I bought 10 acres and had a mini-ranch for 7 years. Back to Mass and Bull HN, a French company - spent a lot of time in Europe.

NEC Computers bought out Bull HN and I ended up doing travel to Japan. My last job was managing world-wide server support for NEC. Then the company closed its New England office and I didn't want to leave the area.

After a couple months of "retirement" my wife talked me into training as a hypnotist. I now have a busy practice helping people of all ages get past irrational fears, unwanted habits, become more healthy and more. I love it and am writing a book on my experiences with it.

When not in the office, I'm canoeing, hiking, biking, traveling the world and just loving life!
