Subject: Pratts Falls Mini 2017

On the last Saturday in August, 8/26/17, about 30 of us Class of 61ers gathered to attend this year's Mini Reunion. We met under and around a shelter reserved especially for us at Pratts Falls State Park.

Ernie's Cafe, who presented us with absolute delicious entrees at our Ryder Park Mini, outdid himself again with barbecued chicken, corn on the cob, salt potatoes, assorted salads, and desserts.

Most of us spent hours catching up with other classmates. Some tried their hand at bocce ball. And many chose to stroll to the top of the falls. Such a perfect day for capturing scenic shots!

The sun was out, the sky blue, and yet there was a bit of a breeze. Since our shelter sported a built-in fireplace and
we had brought firewood, several of us began wandering about looking for kindling wood.

We then had shelter and a robust fire! Plus tunes of the 60's were playing in the background on Sue's battery-operated CD player! Our event continued all afternoon. Everyone seemed content to stay as long as possible. And all were eager to volunteer to take home leftovers!

Sue Kenyon Bartow and Liz Bieling Vaniderstine were our co-chairs this year with Mike Holley and Hazel Sterner Cushman assisting. I took photos, as usual, which will soon be posted to our website for all to view. If you missed this year's Mini, save the last Saturday in August 2018 and plan to attend next year. It promises to be another memorable occasion.

This year classmates in attendance included Peter and Deena Procopio, John and Rita Downing, Vince Morgillo, Mike and Elizabeth Darrow, Dick and Vivian Kyle, Sondra and Phil Swartz (Class of '60), Bill Goodwin, Dave Turo, John Visco, Donna Lewis, Mike Holley, Billy Owens, Janet Greer Wilson, Tom and Susan Bailey, Nancy Hague Poquadeck, Joanne Mace Cookinham, John McLoughlin, Sue Kenyon Bartow, Liz VanIderstine, Hazel Sterner Cushman, and myself. Plus friends of Mike Holley's, Gus and Marcia Russo.

It was really a wonderful day,so we thought and so we heard.
