them and return them to you. Thank you -

Below are many of the emails that followed the
40-year reunion - what a weekend !!
15 2010 - Joan Serino
you and I am glad to be apart of it. I
am in Rome, NY and also can be
found in the RFA yearbook. Just
listened to my CD - very cool. As
far as the reunion - beautiful
girls and handsome men-bittersweet-
sweet hellos and bitter to have it end
so soon. I think the idea
of sharing a 40 + years of life
story makes for a novel or epic
length narative unless you have a
specific moment in time. But a short bio
on people might be a nice option to do
for future gatherings - and/or
open mike for shout outs. Anyway love
to all, Joan Serino

I just returned to Minnesota this
afternoon and am trying to get through
all of the emails.....what a fabulous
time we all had and I will never
forget it. Thank you to all that
made it happen...you did such a great
job....it's all emotionally
overwhelming at the moment and will
take a few days to adjust to the
re-entry to reality. I'll be
sending Dennis the pictures from my

so sweet JoAnn! I know, who quickly it
went by. I just got up from a nap...I
haven't caught up on my rest since
last weekend. LOL! Judi and I were up
at 6 and to bed each night at like 1
or 2...so I don't know about her, but
I'm still tired! LOL! It was such a

First a big thank you to everyone that
made last weekend so memorable. It is a
time I will not soon forget.
Second, just last week at this time we
were at Buckey's acting and feeling 18
again. As I was driving home from work
this evening I was feeling every bit the
58 years that I am!! What is wrong with
this picture?? I'm thinking I need more
It was a 9 hour drive from Virginia to
New York, but it was worth every second
in that car!! I am so glad I am a
member of the RFA class of 1970!!
Love to all.

I’ve read through all the comments on
the weekend and it’s obvious that
everything was a smashing success. I
thoroughly enjoyed myself, talked to
so many people but realized I missed
talking to many others. I guess
there’s only so much ground you can
cover in that short of a time. I saw
people I didn’t expect to see. And I
did not notice and clique stuff going
on. I think it’s more a function of
running into someone and talking to
them at length until someone taps you
on the shoulder and you start again.
That’s how it went for me and I
cherished every minute I got to spend
talking to people. Everyone was
wonderful. It’s amazing what a little
thought association can do to carry a
conversation along. The memories just
flood back and now we are making new
memories. I am so happy to be moving
back and will be able to see more of
you so much easier and more often. We
all have many friends from “the day”
but they would be close for a period
(grammar school. Jr high, hi school)
and then you wouldn’t have contact
with them. We all moved through
friends as we grew and our interests
realigned. To see the grammar school
pals, the jr high pals, and the hs
pals…it all brought back different
memories of different ages and it was
amazing to re-fire the brain cells
from different periods of our lives.
I’m sure you all felt the same when
you met up with different people.
And a BIG thank you to Joanne, Karen,
All The Debs, Phil, Dennis, et al,
sorry if I left anyone out. You all
toiled hard on all this and it really
showed, thank you for putting in the
time and caring so that it would be
just as good as it could have been.
Sorry I missed Bucky’s but Mom’s 86th
birthday kind of trumped that one for
me, as I always say, timing is
everything but I certainly
couldn’t/wouldn’t pass up a chance to
celebrate dear Mom! I’m sure you all
Now if I can just find out who
butt-dialed my cell about 10 times
that night from Bucky’s!
Bowling was great, we all had fun.
Saneen is as athletic as ever and a
very good bowler. And a great student!
It was a lot of fun. The laughter was
infectious, the hugs sincere, the
remembrance of the past…priceless.
So every one gets back to their lives
but I think some good contacts were
made for the future for people to get
together before 5 years pass again.
For me, I’ll be balls-to-the-wall busy
getting ready to move. My house closes
on 8/23 and I’ll be there briefly for
that and then expect to be
in-residence sometime mid-September.
Take care everyone!

I have just finished reading all of
the e-mails describing the
weekend. It sounds like there
were a lot of fun things going
on. I hope that the next time I
will be able to participate in more of
I wondered about what
Phil said as well, regarding the
cliques. I don't know if I
noticed that as much as I did in
school. I suppose that people
naturally gravitate toward the people
that they have a history with.
It was nice to actually meet people
for the first time after 40
years. The RCR definitely
contributed to forming new
I wanted to ask Karen
and Joanne about the donation to
Hospice. I don't know if I
missed something but did we collect
donations for the
charity? I thought we were
going to sell 50/50 raffle
tickets. Just curious.
Also, for the people that made the
baskets, I am sure that everyone was
disappointed that nothing came of
it. I think it was an example of
how information can be miscommunicated
via e-mail. Initially, when the
basket idea was brought up, I
volunteered to keep a list of names of
people who wanted to donate one and
then forward it on to Joanne and
Karen. I believed that was
my part in it and it ended
there. If there was
supposed to be more to it, I apologize
that I was not aware of it. I
hope that the baskets that were made
went to a worthy cause. Everyone
did a beautiful job on
them. The next time we will
plan better in that
Dennis mentioned the
dancing. I personally love to
dance and had so much fun on the dance
floor. The opportunity to dance
doesn't present itself often enough,
except with my grandsons to some good
old Farmer In The Dell or Hokey
I think we will
continue to have reunion conversations
as memories keep popping into our
heads. It was a great

I want to thank everyone. The
reunion, the website, the bowling
shirts, the pictures, the cd and I
could just go on and on. I don't know
if everyone received my first email
the night I got home because it was
late and my computer was acting up,
but I had such a blast. I can't
wait for the next 5 years.
Seeing Deb Nash, Susan, Joanie, Judi,
Ernie....... I could go on and
on. It was so special to me,
YOU GUYS!! I MISS YOU GUYS!!!
11 2010 - Saneen Armstrong
I had so much fun this weekend.
I really didn't want it to end.
I was very emotional when I was coming
home. I love you guys. I
can't wait for 5 years to come
again. Thank you so much for
coming bowling with me. I had a
blast. I feel like we all
connected in a very real way.
you again for forming this
website. It truly was the
beginning of pulling us together.

connect and then we lost each other
again, but never again. Saneen

it! It brought back so many
memories. What ever happened to

wondering who did it. I told my
husband that he could listen to it

times. I know that he will enjoy
So many great moments
at the reunion. Everyone else
pretty much summed them all up, but I
have to agree with all the feelings
that were being shared in that room
and at Lake Delta. I have been
telling everyone what a wonderful time
that we all had and I can't wait to do
it again. I think that mini
reunions in the interim are the way to
go. Let us all put our heads
together to keep the group alive and
think of some activities that we can

the same way as you Dennis and Debbie,
(just as you write in these
emails)........it was a wonderful
weekend.....I'm just sorry that I
wasn't able to make Bucky's or the
bowling alley........but, next time I
will be at everything....
Deb H. - YOU DID A FANTASTIC JOB WITH
THE PICTURES.....Thank you so very
much for being so talented, too.
You are a very, very special
classmate/person. We all
appreciate all of the work that you
have done and getting the pictures out
so quickly. I really enjoyed
looking at them first thing this
morning getting into work. And,
say "hi" to your husband, too.
I'm so glad I got to meet him.
Karen, I just love the CD......that
was such a good idea......It will be
with me forever and forever........
don't want to miss anyone who helped
out so much, so THANK YOU
wonderful day! Miss
you..... - Val
11 2010 - Debbie Nash
how you feel Dennis...I miss everybody
too. I have been very emotional this
past week and still am. It will take
some time for that to fade...it was
just so nice seeing everybody and sad
knowing that you can't hang with them
on a regular basis. For me, Saneen and
Ernie and Judi who were such important
people in my life back in the day.
Elizabeth too...she was my on and off
again best friend at DeWitt. It was
just so good and so sad all at the
same time. So, I know how you are
feeling Den. At least we have more to
look forward to, perhaps annual
get togethers for those who are within
driving distance and want to hang out
for a weekend. I know we are
all be so grateful that Karen and
Joanne have plugged along all these
years making it possible for us to
reconnect. Definitely we owe alot you
to Dennis. I feel if not for the RCR
this reunion would not have been such
a memorable one. The RCR has brought
all together so that the tireless
efforts of Karen and Joanne
culminated in bringing about the most
attended reunion ever. I
personally am very grateful.
|Aug 11 2010 - Dennis
Thanks for that reminder Joanne.
I certainly neglected to mention Debbie Pugliese and Judi Morreale in my
“thank you” email earlier !!
Judi is my lifetime buddy and she
used to keep me in check when I was
12 and getting in trouble back in
the day. Judi, you did so much
from a distance !! The bowling
shirts, and those Dennis Revere wine
bottles…… too much !!! They’ll
last until the next reunion. I
saw you called me Monday night –
I’ll call you this week.
Debbie, thank you so much for your
hard work too. The labels on the CDs
help make it a keepsake that I’ll
take to my grave. Those labels
were such a great idea! I listened
to the CD all the way through
repeatedly on my 5-hour drive home,
loving it and thinking of all of
you! Karen, the songs are
great and please thank your son as
well for his help.
speaking of that CD, wasn’t it
awesome to have it blasting away
during the bowling?!!! Since I
was bowling on lane 12, I had the
extra pleasure of listening to Ernie
singing along with some of the
songs. Ernie, lemme tell ya
buddy…. If you lived near me, you
and I would venture in some serious
recording here. You have a
great voice that should be shared!
gone it, I miss you all…… still
going through reunion withdrawal……
missing Roman accents……

reunion. The website is awesome. I
still live in Rome... Cindy

1970 RFA grads, Just wanted you all to
know I had a blast at the
reunion. We are blessed to have
such a great class. Look forward
to keeping in touch, and the next
reunion. Thanks also to
our organizers who made this all
possible. Cheers Jules

having a good time and were very happy
to be there...we all were.

It was good to see everybody again. I'm
not sure I can wait until the 50th! I'll
have to find another excuse to visit
Rome, perhaps for no good reason at
all. Steve Miroy
10 2010 - Debbie Pugliese
Dennis, It was wonderful
meeting you in
person. I knew you were a
sincere and kind man not only
because you started the RCR
but by your written words as
well. It was only
confirmed when I was able to meet you.
It surely was a memorable
event. Getting the group
together on the website not only
rekindled relationships but created
new ones as well. Thats
why we when we finally did get connect
with old friends, it had more meaning.
I am so glad that people feel the
same about keeping these friendships
active. At this point in
our lives we are all past the drama
of trying to impress our peers along
with seeing what we can accomplish
in our own life. 40
years is a long time and we
all have endured happiness along
with hardships. We can
identify and relate and to
each other. Most of all
we can be good
listeners. Top that off
with laughter and we have the world
in our hands. Have a wonderful week
and thank you
|Aug 10 2010 - Chuck Halpin
What a great reunion! Thanks to
all who helped put this amazing weekend
in place. It was so good to chat
and discover what many of you have been
doing the past 40
years. Hanging around Bucky's
on Friday night and shooting the bull
with so many old friends was
awesome. Deeply saddened by
the memorial.... Glad to see so many
from out of town. I missed
the mud wrestling - does anyone
have a video of it they can post on our

what you mean, Saneen, because I'm

morning you checked out. Your

guy........I'm so glad that he was
able to come, too....

reunion happen - THANK YOU SO VERY
MUCH...........Life is good especially
when you can spend it with our 70's

going to be in the paper?????
great day, everyone!!!!!!
|Aug 10 2010 - Dennis
This reunion weekend truly was
and will remain one of the most
memorable events of my
life. I knew before coming
that it would be fun, but had no
idea just how great a weekend it
would be. Since I never
made it to RFA, I loved seeing
the people I knew well from
and Bell Road.
But as an added bonus, finally
meeting up with so many of you
that I didn’t know or hang with
back in the day, was the icing
on the cake !! I did not
want the weekend to end.
My heart was warmed when you
made me an honorary graduate of
RFA’s 1970 class. I heard
someone yell “speech” after
Karen placed the cap on, but I
would not have been able to
speak without breaking
down. I was caught by
surprise with all that and quite
thanked by so many of you
regarding the RCR website, but the
real legwork lies with Joanne and
Karen. What they did in
preparation and classmate finding
takes much more energy and effort
than me sitting still here editing
I was glad that so many of us
resorted to dancing at this
reunion, especially since I had
heard there was almost no dancing
at the 35 year. Many thanks
to Dr. Phil for keeping the vibe
and pulse going with the
music! Dancing keeps us
young !! It was an extra
treat to continue dancing to
Vinnie’s music at the Delta
Inn. And I must add that the
ride from 12 North to the Delta
Inn was most enjoyable with Karen
and Debbie. I could listen
to you both for hours! Maybe
you two could make a CD of
conversation for me….. I’d be
curious to play it in my car to
see if the windshield fogs up
again. ha ha
!!!! Wow, was that fun or
what ?!!! I had planned on
attending just to watch, but I
know that bowling will need to
become a permanent part of any
future RFA weekend, thanks HUGE to
Saneen !! I can still hear
you laughing dear!
I have to say too, that I was so
happy to hear and read that some
RCR people repaired their
relationships with each
other. We are family, yes we
are, and that is forever !!
I look forward to the 45 year
reunion and more graduates joining
RCR online. Keep spreading
I know it would be difficult for
the out-of-towners, but I really
believe a smaller scale annual
event is not only feasible, but
desirable. I’m talking about
something like a happy hour at
Bucky’s - nothing too
complicated, just a chance to get
together to laugh, reminisce, and
check out Karen’s heels. (smirk)
The date could be set way in
advance so people mark their
calendars, etc. I’m 5 hours
away from Rome, but
I will certainly be there.
I love you all !!! Thank you
for being part of my life !!
I have a lot of RCR email catching
up to do this week, and want to
thank some of you individually.
|Aug 10 2010 - Joanne Rosato
when someone asked about the cd, I said
Karen and her son did it.. they recorded
it all,. I failed to mention that Deb
Pugliese did the labels with help from a
friend and all to put it together....
she also did a lot of leg work for gifts
and stuff. She knew I wasn't able to do
it and helped Karen with so much. So, a
big thank you to her and mea culpa
Aug 10 2010 -
Amazingly written as usual Dr.
Yes, I agree it was a
very emotional weekend. Saying goodbye
was hard, looking at all my classmates
and wondering why we didn't connect
like that in high school...very
emotionally draining. When I went to
work on Monday I looked like I had
been out on a drunken binge the night
before. So tired and still am, but I
think more emotionally drained than
I would be happy to
organize the silent auction for next
reunion. I am sure Judi would be my
partner in doing so. Judi is a special
person, as many of you learned this
past weekend. She's one in a million.
I was able to spend three days with
her, day and night, and I could spend
the rest of my life with her...she's
As Phil said, we
buried the hatchett and vowed to never
let it happen again. For that I am
grateful. Life is too short and
everybody is worthy of love and
respect. I didn't get to talk to
Gloria alot, but she seems to be a
very friendly and fun person. It was
Karen, Joanne, and
Deb H., I have offered to be involved
in the planning and the work of
organizing the reunion. So once again,
let me say I am willing to do whatever
to help; just let me know. Let's make
the next one even better girls, if
that is possible!
Love to all!
|Aug 9 2010 - Peter Kunkel
The credit for the music CDs does not go
to me but to Phil Domenico I think. A
labor of love. Thanks. I did put the
small slide show together using
materials stolen from RCR website and
the yearbook. Anyone interested, I
can send you a copy of it that plays on
any DVD player and does not require a
computer or software. I would like to
hold off just a little and see if I
can't get some photos from this reunion
and add them at the end Just send me
your address via email. Please, do give
me a little time as I have to make
copies one at a time.
It was wonderful to see you all after
forty years absence.
2010 - Saneen Armstrong
everyone. I just walked into my
door from the airport.
to say THANK YOU to everyone from the
bottom of my heart who played a part
in this reunion from Karen, Joanne,
Deb, Phil and Dennis for our beautiful
website and anyone else that had a
part in putting this event
together. I believe connecting
through the RCR group really made us
closer this weekend before we even got
the best time of my life. I
laughed so hard all weekend that my
jaws hurt. lol!!
though, I really love you guys and I'm
just not saying that without truly
meaning it. I talked all the way
home to my husband about how much I
really love you guys and what you all
mean to me. I am sitting hear
crying as I am writing this. You
can make friends when you are older
but there is nothing like the
childhood friends that you grew up
with. I just didn't know that I
would feel this deeply after leaving
you all. I miss you all
you, thank you and thank you for
memories that I will never
forget. AND THANK YOU FOR COMING
BOWLING WITH ME. I HAD A
BLAST!!!!! Rick you are an
awesome bowler and thanks for the
to all of you. Talk to you soon.
11 2010 - Dennis Parrish
I’m still catching up with emails,
Phil. I’m missing everyone and
savoring the memories of the
weekend. Thanks for writing this
below and I look so forward to seeing
you and Gloria August 21 in the big
apple. I wish all of RCR could
be there. It was great hanging
out and being surrounded by four Ed
McMahons – you guys set me up
for much of my arsenal of one
liners!! Ha ha
Much love Dennis

she's an early nighter.
the dust settled each night, there
were the 4 of us.
hiked Pixley Falls and the Pine Bogs

walked the old neighborhoods in Far
East Rome, including Riverdale and
visited Bucky Giardino at his store

things up, but neither answered.

their respective cliques, even
after all these years?
kind of looked that way to me, but I'm
not an expert on who knows who.
guys I used to hang with are either
dead or MIA (though I saw Dave Castor
at Bucky's Friday night).
may have been fortunate in one sense,
cuz I got to hang with new folks this

not for Saneen's ears.

Karen, thank you and Joanne and Deb
for all your hard work. You guys are
awesome and I am sure we can't thank
you enough for all you have done
through the years to bring this class
together. Next one will be even
better. Can't wait for 2015!

I woke up today and I have no voice,
I know I had one before I went to
bed last night ! I am
convinced my family and
other friends have prayed for
this moment to happen.
They all have had to put up
with me for months talking
about the reunion. I have
a tenacity to stone them
all. But at least I have the RCR
group.Thank the Lord, I can let my
fingers do the talking.!
ever. I can't get over what a good
looking, young group we all
are.Thank you all for coming. You
ALL made it worth the work. Now I
won't know what to do with
myself. Let see, maybe I
can ...cook and
clean house and watch TV and
get some rest. BORING
I'll get a list
together of all that came to
the reunion and ask
my side kick Dennis to please
put it up on our site.

I would like to echo all the comments

...let's not forget the one who hung up
on me or the brother in Texas that put
his answering machine on after they told
me to call back !!!!!! LOL if

seeing so many of you having a good
time. God willing I will see you in five
years..... As Frank Sinatra sang, The
Best is Yet to Come !!!!!!!

should work for the FBI or the CIA.
She never gave up until she found some
information on a classmate. We would
talk many times a day and I was always
shock at who she found and what she
had to do to get it. Not a easy task!

so much fun seeing everyone

Deb.......(The Class of 70 Rocks!!!!)

Yeah, we looked for
you to say good by but we thought you
had left. It was great seeing you,
made me feel like we were back in 6th
grade! So much fun.
Naw, I think we
should do a 45th! Let's not wait
another 10 years!! PLEASE let's go
every 5 now!! Love to all. It was a
great weekend, reconnecting with
everybody and seeing everybody after
all these years. I totally got to
establish new friendships with those
who I didn't really hang out with back
then and it was amazing. Karen and Deb
H., love you two and remember, we are
going to do dinner and comedy show at
the casino and other things....we have
to keep in touch and enjoy each other
while we can. Phil, so glad we buried
the verbal hatchett and got that out
of our systems! Gloria is a great
person, we missed her at bowling. Rick
and Terry, so happy for the two of you
and hope we can do things together now
that Rick is back! That's awesome!
Thanks Rick for bringing a new friend
into my life.
It was tough saying
goodbye to my girl Saneen and Judi. It
was a sad day yesterday but so happy
to see them both and spend time with
them. I had the honor or hanging with
Judi for 3 days, day and night and we
had a blast and Jude, I love ya!!
Saneen, we will be in touch. We have
so much to catch up on. Ernie, what
can I say?? I LOVE YOU! You're my
peep. Elizabeth, Val...love you both.
Great to connect with you guys too! Of
course my girl Dianne B. always! So
many to mention.
Okay everybody, I
will close for now. Love you all and
like my daughter says "The Class of 70

Thank you, thank you, thank you to the
people involved in putting this
reunion together! I do believe that
Denise forgot to include a very
important person in her email. Without
the hard work of Joanne in locating
people through phone calls, white
pages, Facebook, Classmates and
whatever other sources she used, many
of the attendees would not have been
there. I believe that everyone in one
way or another helped Joanne and
Karen, Dennis & Debbie make this
reunion the BEST ever! I am so
glad that I chose to attend the Friday
night at Bucky’s, Saturday at 12 North
and Delta Lake Inn (enjoying the
wonderful talent of Vinnie Espostio).
What a great class-The Class of

A big thank -you to you , Karen and
Debbie Pugliese it was a wonderful
reunion and you did a lot of work for
this special weekend. I think
someone told me that Peter Kunkel made
the music CDs for everyone.
If that is so, thank -you Peter that was
so thoughtful and the music is fun and
I am so glad to have been able to visit
with so many classmates that I haven't
seen in years and I think I even
visited with some that I didn't know
back in the day.

Hello to everyone that went to the
reunion. Many of you are still
there having brunch and bowling.
Hope you have a great day.
I just wanted to say how great it was
to see everyone again. Deb Nash and
Judi, I looked for you to say goodbye
and couldn't find you. :-(
I had so much fun dancing and with
you. Looking forward to our
PS- I'll be sending
my pictures to Dennis to post for us.
