1. Friday 9/8/06-7:30 p.m. Informal gathering
Early birds renewed old friendships and got to know one another again at the Gatsby Lounge in the Hotel.
This is the same place where the dancing was after the buffet dinner on Saturday.
2. Saturday 9/9/06 – 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. - Clarkstown Bus Tour
Bus Tour – New City, Clarkstown High School and Environs
We took a good, ol' bright yellow-orange Peter Brega bus all the way down New Hempstead road,
into New City, and over to the school, where principal Harry Leonardatos was waiting for us.
There was a nice, long tour, through the high school, into the gym, a visit to a classroom or
two, then through the new Music wing over to the Annex housing the Junior High, and then
back to the Karnachan mansion for a group tour photo.
Our tour included:
- Main Street, New City
- Clarkstown High School
- New City Park Lake
3. Saturday, 9/9/06 – 7:30 pm - 12:30 am - buffet dinner
This was the "main event".
A surprisingly good dinner was prepared by the Holiday Inn staff,
following the menu choices of the committee, which included:
- tossed garden salad
- chicken Waldorf salad, Red Bliss potato salad
- stuffed filet of sole florentine
- roasted chicken rosemary
- pasta primavera
- roasted potatoes
While we finished up dinner, Steve Kelley described the preparations for
the reunion, Donna handed out awards, Dorothy introduced everyone, and Ray
gave a bit of the history of the influx of students into New City by projecting
some early Clarkstown slides while regaling everyone with his knowledge of the
history of the school district.
4. Sunday, 9/10/06 – 11:00 a.m. - Brunch
Brunch at Airmont Diner
We had brunch on Sunday at the Airmont Diner. Quite a good crowd squeezed in,
and we had 25 or so attending.
