2001 Alumni Banquet

The 2001 Banquet will be at the Ramada Inn, Lake George, NY. The Class of 1951 will be celebrating their 50-year anniversary. Other classes to be recognized are those who graduated in years ending in "6" and "1". The date is Saturday, June 16, 2001.

The banquet is for all alumni - not just those celebrating anniversary years. Special emphasis is placed on anniversary years, but all classes are invited and encouraged to attend. Tables are designated for anniversary year classes - look for your table!

The Association DOES NOT send out tickets or confirmations of reservations. You will receive a name tag with your table designation attached (if you are an anniversary Year alumnus) when you arrive for dinner.

Hors d'oeuvres will be served at 6:00 p.m. with dinner and dancing to follow at 7:00 p.m.. Please be sure to fill out the reservation form contained in this newsletter. Reservation deadline is June 2, 2001. If anyone is interested in overnight accommodations at the Ramada, call 1-518-668-3131. The Ramada is located at Exit 21 of the Adirondack Northway (Route 87).

Thank you, Class of 1942
Several members of the Class of 1942 donated money in memory of classmate Dorothy Hurd. The money has been used for the case displaying their graduation year.

Door Prize
A country basket filled with assorted goodies was made and donated by Sally Gensel Deuel ('68), and served as a door prize. The winner was Barbara Sebald Rollman ('47) of Hadley.

We Need Your Input
For those of you who attended last year's banquet, we would like to know if having colored balloons on your dinner card that matched the ones on the table helped you find your designated seats? Also, any suggestions as to how to encourage/motivate the newest alumni to attend our banquet? We have thought of the possibility of having a Brooks Bar-b-que, to be held at the school, as our Alumni Banquet in the next few years. We thought that would give everyone the chance to see all the changes in the "old" building as well as have an opportunity to see our Hallowed Hall. What are your feelings on this? Also, what about having an afternoon dinner with a cruise on Lake George available for those who would be interested.

Hadley-Luzerne Central School Alumni Web Page
David Cranston ('75) has been busy creating a web page where alumni information is available. The e-mail address is HLCSalumni-subscribe@onelist.com [Note... this is the e-mail address to subscribe to the HLCSAlumni newsgroup, an unmoderated e-mail list. Include only the word 'Subscribe', without the quotes, in the subject line. The HLCS Alumni Web Site is www.HLCSAlumni.org - webmaster]. There is also a website designed to reunite high school and college alumni. The address is www.classmates.com . As of this writing, there are presently 362 HL alumni signed up. Registration is free, but there is an annual membership fee. This fee enables you to access e-mail addresses. A message board is featured where alumni can leave messages. This might be a good way of helping us with addresses and also helping you find some of your classmates.
