Another Mother and Daughter Lunch

Jane Baxer, her Mom (who will be 91 this November) and best childhood friend Sue Willet had the pleasure of having lunch together recently. Mrs. Baxer was like a 2nd Mom to Sue, yelling at her as much as she did Jane. Mrs. Baxer still drives and recently completed a special Drivers Ed course to receive an extra 5% off of her car insurance. We should all be that lucky when we reach her age. How nice for Mrs. Baxer to hold our traveling class sign. The class of 1968 is certainly getting around. We hope to see more classmates enjoying each others company.

Our Traveling Class Sign

In trying to keep our site fun and interesting I will be posting pictures of our traveling class sign. I hope you will be able to indentify the places we have traveled to. Signs are available for those that would like to contribute to the blog and share their travels or special place. Just let me know and I will be happy to mail you one. I hope you will visit our blog often to see where our class has been. Comments are welcome and appreciated. If you are having trouble posting just let us know, we are here to help. I am running out of ideas, your help is needed to keep our blog entertaining.

Marilyn with her Mom Ann Bindas, Susan with her Mom Stella Woja, Me with Mrs Mags. If there is anyone out there who graduated with us and still has their Mom they are more than welcome to join us, just drop me a line and I'll let you know when and where.

Jane Baxer, Nancy Lamb, Nancy Roy, Sandi Mazur, Sue Willet and Marilyn Bindas enjoying time and dinner together. We are planning to get together each month, please consider joining us for our next dinner. October 23th at 5 PM, contact any of us for the location. It is so nice to spend time with each other, especially since a few of us didn't really know each other in high school. Let's keep the mini reunions going until the 45th is here. Come on ladies, join us in October.

And the mini reunions continue

Who would have thought that I would have found 2 drinking buddies at the VFW in New Britain on Sept 6th, 2008. Ok you can all stop laughing now. How nice it was to spend some time with and have a drink with Chuck and Randy, two classmates that I have known since Thomas Jefferson Elementary School. I was fortunate to spend time with them and some other New Britain friends while Judi and I attended the 10th Annual Club Reunion. My good friend Bobby Ruel came in from California, he was an ADS member. How could I not drive in from NY even with hurricane Hanna following me when he came all that way. My brother Jim who lives in Florida along with Judi's brother Jimmy Maglio who lives in California were both members of the Earls. Judi and I wanted to attend since our brothers could not. Today our clubs would have been known as gangs, however I remember good clean fun (well not always clean) and trying to raising enough money to hold dances so we could spend a week in the summer at the beach. Storm Hanna wasn't going to keep Judi and I away, however Judi had to leave before I was able to gather up these guys for the picture. Although we may look in the mirror and see that we have aged, the guys at this reunion didn't show any signs of slowing down. Some of us continued on until closing at the Amber Club. I was in more bars this weekend than I have been in since I moved to Long Island in 1971. I will admit I had a great time. When I left that last bar I thought for a moment my 1968 rust colored Javelin would be sitting outside waiting for me, then the rain and wind from Hanna covered my face and I remembered it was 2008, not 1968
