“Recently, I experienced one of those “small world” events. My husband, Rupert, and I have just moved to a senior apartment in Springfield, Massachusetts. As part of my “getting to know you” page, I mentioned that my Mariner Girl Scout troop had enjoyed a week in 1952 sailing Long Island Sound on the brigantine ”Yankee.” Shortly after, another resident came to me and said “Captain Johnson was my uncle.” This unlocked a flood of memories and has promoted further conversations with him. I found this photograph of Wellsville’s “land-locked sailors” and was dismayed to be able to identify only a few of my crew mates. Can anyone help? Marian Jacobs Brook, Class of ‘53”
It is with regret that the Wellsville New York High School Alumni Association has announced the cancellation of the June 26, 2021 50+ Luncheon. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 Virus situation vaccines and re-openings, we felt it was in the best interest of our attendees to cancel this year’s event and look forward to the June 25, 2022 luncheon. Please make sure that any friends or family that is not electronically “connected” be made aware of this cancellation.
Please be aware that, even though we are not holding any events that will add to our general fund, we are still awarding scholarships.
