My sisters and brother attended Sidway High School (Dick, Jeannette and Pam). Only my sister Pam and I remain in the Bath, NY area. So fun to hear places I remember mentioned in others comments. Beaver Island was a wonderful place for all of us to go when we were young. My memories and spacific names need "dusting off" because I was young when we left. Enjoy reading others' comments..'

I met a great woman who puts up with all my childhood memories and who has given me three wonderful children.

Regina Benson - Grand Island resident: 1962 - 1965.
Comments: 'I remember early spring mornings on the Island, after the children left on the bus for school I would sit on my porch and smell the fresh air, enjoying the feeling of just being alive. Then I would go across the road to get the morning paper, in the days of the Bflo. Courier Express. The house was so quiet with the children gone for the day and I would call my sister in Bflo. to arrange to pick her up to come to my home for an afternoon of first lunch and then to Kelly's Country store to see what was there that we may have missed on our previous "look-about". I remember buying a small doll of P.T.Barnum, which I have to this day. We were so happy while we lived there and have many, many fond memories that it is difficult to name even a few. The pears that grew on the trees on our front lawn fed us and then the deer that came from the woods. One time a deer came up on the porch causing the Flying Disc, that belonged to my son, to make such a noise that we were afraid it would come thru the window after us when it saw us looking out at it. The times we fished off the bridge in Buckhorn Park, the trip to the barber shop, on Baseline Rd. across from St. Stephan's for the unpopular brush cuts for my sons amid many and loud protests, the sunsets we saw thru the window facing the west and many, many more wonderful memories come to my mind in the twilight of my life and will evermore be a part of my life tho I am so far from our beloved Grand Island home. Folks who live there and are raising their children should treasure the real things in life which will be but memories for them too one day..'

Comments: 'I went to Huth Road Elementary, Sidway and GI high...I was nicknamed Bertie. I was sister to my beloved late brother Blaise, who died in 1966 by drunk driver. I am number 7th child to Blaise and Betty (Elizabeth ) Rindone. I was looking in your awsome albums for some possible pictures of me. We left Grand Island after Blaise's death. My father couldnt stand the memories (we lived on Love Road at that time) and he moved us to Franklinville, New York, which was very hard on me, leaving all my friends and memories behind.. I finished high school at Ten Broeck Academy or Franklinville Central High School.. Years ago it was founded by Peter Tenbroeck and was actually a free academy. It scored high acedemically and the atheletic team was rated high in Cattaraugus County, thats all for now.'

I got married in 1992 to Dennis Ormsby Jr.(class of 1986) and we also had our first daughter the same year. We did move back to the Island in 1993-1994,moved to Niagara Falls where we had our 2nd daughter in 1995. In 1998 we decided to move to Titusvile,Florida, where we still reside. I will always consider Grand Island as my home and i miss greatly all the friends and family that still live there!.'

I was at the middle school for such a short time, I can't imagine anyone there remembers me. But I remember them. There were some really bright interesting people in that class, like Steve D'Addieco, a creative force in theater and comedy. And Terry Kimmel, an inscrutable genius. And some really nice girls, one in particular who made an impression as a real sweetheart, just a really nice person. And I'm sure still is. I rode the school bus every day with the late Terry Crowe, a hero who is in my mind forever young, forever cheerful, an enduring smile imprinted on his face. Innocent time, long time ago..'

There were a few times when my mom, chief fire dispatcher, or any of the other 4 ladies who filled in were not home and my sister and I had to take care of handling a fire call. We were well trained. There were also the picnics in Ball's back yard, ice skating with several neighborhood "kids" at the end of our yard which would fill with water from the adjoining lots and the famous hot dog stand at Love and Stony point. I have been married for 44 years, have 3 sons and 7 grandchildren with our 8th grandchild due in April. We are "snowbirds" and head to warmer weather for the winter but always look forward to being back home for the summer..'

Diana Grajek - Grand Island resident since 2003.
Comments: 'Hi, I just wanted to say that your photographs are amazing. I walk my dog at all the parks and am always reminded of the beauty of the Island. One of the reasons I found this sight is because I keep hearing coyotes in the middle of the night. It is actually quite scary (being a viewer of werewolf movies). It sounds like a pack of them and I've heard them several times. I've tried to see them, but when I look out it stops and I haven't been able to see anything. (I am across the street from fields). Anyways, your pictures are absolutely beautiful..'

Comments: 'Grand Island was agreat place to live. Due to it's size, it didn't take very long to get from one place to another. I used to ride my bike to the Monica St. to visit my good friend Roland following my familes move to the Sandy Beach area. As usaul, time caused us to drift, especially when my father was transferred to the Montreal Canada, following my Sophmore year at GI High. In '67, I returned to live with my grandparents, but went to Eden Central, where I graduated in '68. However, it provided me with the opportunity to visit Grand Island on weekends. Once in awhile, I would ride the GI High bus with friends to attend a sporting event. Following Graduation, I moved to Ca. with my parents once again to continue my schooling. In all the years thereafter, I never forgot about Grand Isalnd. Now, I've been given the opportunity to attend GI High's 40th to see those whom I grew up with once again. Thank You Grand Island for this oportunity. Just to let you know how much I talked about GI, under my yearbook picture it says, "How are things on Grand Island"?.'

We lived next door to Wilkinson's. Pat Wilkinson (now Moravec) and I are STILL great friends. I remember the Clown House, the Sandy Beach Parades, going to another friend's house- Karen Sciandra and helping her take care of her 9 younger siblings (all K's)! I remember us girls walking to the Plaza to go to Neisner's to buy 45's. We used to have great slumber parties and sneak out all night to roam the streets and laugh like fools! There are way too many memories to write here. My friends, Karen Sciandra Raepple, Pat Wilkinson Moravec, Geri Kilmer, Kim Pickles Stolp, Diane Loder Kerner and Kathy Geisenhoff Randall STILL get together at least once a year for a slumber party at Karen's home. We have been doing this since we all turned 40 in 1991. I cherish them all and all the wonderful childhood memories I have. Danna Moles.'

I remember the wonderful "snow", good neighbors that talked across the fence. Everything on the Island was close and relatively easy to get to compared to larger areas. As when I lived on the Island I enjoy walks at Buckhorn,golfing at Beaver Island State Park and so much more. I wish Grand Island was futher south it would be heaven on earth. My mother (Vera) died in 1991, brother (Jack)in 1992 and my father(Levi)in 2001. The Firemen and all the wonderful people on Grand Island helped us thru the difficult times. My Son Sargent Stephen Ferguson is now 25 has just returned from his second tour of duty in Iraq. He has receeived two purple hearts... and is thankfully in one piece. After graduating from YSU as an Metallurgical Engineer 1973, Theresa my wife and I have moved several times from Pennsylvannia, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvannia and now in Virginia..'

Did quite a lot up and down that road with my siblings, friends. Miss the gang....the times we had. Time takes it toll on everything.........but cant erase the best times of my life there on Grand Island. No question about it! I would give my right hand............ok.......maybe my lil finger to go back in time to around 1975. Cruising in my brothers 62 listing to the tunes (not disco) eight of us packed in that car. Maybe heading to Sheridan Drivein.........or Teds.......Riverside.......Mighty Taco...... Or sitting by a fire on a nice summer night down at the pier with everyone. We partied till dawn most saturday nights. Surprised im still alive or not in jail, lol. Life was simple then............no cable.........no ipods...........no cell phones........no PS2. The list goes on. Fast paced everything is today. What seemed like yesterday.....1978. And now its 2007! Someone tell me who kicked it into overdrive? When i been trying to stay at cruising speed. Oh well. I can go on and on here as i know everyone else can that lived the life of an Islander. If anyone cares to E-mail me please do. Steve Gibbs 11/4/07.'

NO WalMart greeter or McDonalds for me. 5.) Married/divorced/remarried - have 3 grown boys, ages 23-31 yrs. I live appox. 3hours east of G.I. and drive through there occasionally to visit Mom, brothers, & other family members in the area. I look forward to attending our 40th Reunion in October. I think that I have only attended ONE since 1967! Maybe I have attended more but I can not recall when - NO, I am not in politics, just getting more forgetful by the day! Hope that the past 4 decades have been kind to all of you! Look forward to seeing you again!!!..'

Comments: 'After living in Charlotte, Birmingham, Kansas City, back to Buffalo and now Salt Lake City, I would like to hear from those that were friends and we lost touch, those who thought we were friends and anyone in between. Sadly I will not be able to make it to the 20th reunion and I was so looking forward to seeing the receding hairlines and those who have gained a few pounds LOL !! Seriously though, wish I could be there to catch up with some oldfriends that have lost touch throughout the years. For those that know my brother Keith (1988 grad) - he is a Major in the airforce flying F16's and is currently stationed in NewCastle, Australia! If you wish to contact him drop me a line and I will give him your email address. Cheers to all!.'

I spent a few years with the airlines, then went in to sales, first I was sales director for a annual grand prix race, then 10 years selling radio air time. I currently own and operate a motocross track. God, knows how I ended up doing that, but it is great. My track is supercross, we have alot of kids that ride, ages from 4 years old to 50, mostly males. I am not sure if anyone that lives in New York has dirt bike tracks, due to the weather. But you can check out my web site at, www.sunshinemotocross.com. I really hope we have a reunion this year, it has been 40 years, hard to believe. I look forward to seeing all of my old class mates.

Comments: 'My wife and I took a trip across the country last October. It was the first time I had been back to Grand Island for at least 30 years. Yes it has changed, but the old feel for the "island" is still there. I now live in California and all our kids are grown and moved out to start there own lives. But it seems like just a very short time ago we were playing football and swiming for "GI High". Back when the summers were full of water skiing, softball, Beaver Island, Ceal & Chucks, WKBW and many more adventures too numerous to list. I love California and will never move back, but I couldn't have wanted a better place to grow up than Grand Island in the 60's..'

After setting at the computer for hours I know right away when I came upon Grand Island that if I was going to make the move to the area it would be no where else but "Grand Island". By luck I met Linda K and Colleen C (and what professionals they are). We must have looked at what seemed like hundreds of homes online. Long story short we finally made it to your Island last week and on day one of our home search we found our dream home on Timberlink. We're back in Florida now just counting the days to call Grand Island our home!.'

Comments: 'My grandparents, Joseph and Lydia Katrein owned the Edgewater which was a rock and roll place at the time, used to take me there almost daily and sit me on the pool table while my gram would prepare for that night's supper and grampa would help her clean. They played the same songs on the jukebox for me which were "Hang on Sloopy", and my grampa's favorite, "Bluberry Hill" by Fats Domino. I remember a spray painted figure near the bandstand and it always scared me...apparently it was something at night but you needed black lights to see it, my gram would tell me. The funny thing was I had a third grade teacher at Kaegebein named Mr. LaBarber and one time my gram came to school to pick me up and as I was getting my things together I heard him call my gram " MA?!?" then she said Jim?! (I think) and it turned out my 3rd grade teacher had a life before us kids and played guitar in one of the bands that frequented there!! I love to hear stories of my Gram and grampa or "ma and pa" as they were called..'

The long summers where we went out in the morning & came back for lunch or dinner without our parents worrying about us! Picking strawberries in the back fields,playing baseball with all the neighborhood kids, playing "dolls" with the girls. Then came the Halloween Grande Ile Village Parade, the big bonfire down at the custard stand after we trick or treated down Love Road & East Park. Ice skating in the fields which are now the ColdBrook homes. Never locking our doors!! I'd like to hear via email from some of my former playmates & schoolmates to catch up!.'

My last visit to the Island was 3 years ago. It was great to see Amberwood and how lovely it still is. I was very fortunate to have been raised in such a beautiful neighborhood.The hobbies I have today stem from my wonderful experiences on the Island although I do not miss freezing weather and freak when we drop below 60F..'

Swimming in the river at the Bedell House and Senn's dock off the old barge; Charlotte's homemade Clam broth at the Hot Dog Stand where most of us Ferry Villager's had our first chance at some quality on the job training, thanks to Charlotte Guenther and Betty McNamee! Sitting on the roof of the Bedell House watching the boat races cheering on Miss Bardol (course, Charlotte never knew we were up there-or so we thought). The bunch of us Christmas carolling thru the village; boy I could go on for hours but the important thing we learned was the value of quality friendships. Not just us kids but our parents, as well. Ferry Village was a very special place where everyone looked out for each other. I will always hold that sense of family close to me....'.'

I remember the Bedell House and riding the river in my friend's Chris Craft inboard boat that attracted attention in those days. Lived on Williams Road before it was done over. We leased a house there for a year. There was only three houses on Williams Road at the time. Yes, a quarter got you over the bridge. No Thruway in the old days. A grand place to live..'

The go-kart track, riding my dirt bike non-stop, and St. Angelo's Pizza and Wings. Of course many other good times as I grew up in my high school days... too many to share here. Take care all.'

Comments: 'A former Grand Island resident, Sal Maglie, who has since passed away, grew up on the east side of Niagara Falls in the 1920's and 30's.

Sal was the opposing pitcher vs. the Yankees in the 1956 World Series when Larson hurled a perfect game. My father, who was a physical therapist in the Niagara Falls area from 1951 to 1996, maintained his friendship with Sal. Dr. Martinez was a sports collector and saved memorabilia commemorating Sal's major league accomplishments. At the time of Sal's death a few years prior to my dad's, Dr. Martinez turned over all his scrapbooks to Sal's sister..'

Grand Island is so welcoming and has such "wonderful" people and I am truly glad that I moved here. I could go on forever with all the praises toward Kaegebein School and the Middle School. I heard Grand Island had great schools, but what I have seen and felt from these schools is outstanding..'

The old Sunset Drive Gang, swimming on the West River, bicycle riding to Longs store and the many night games of playing dodge ball and late night ice skating on the ponds. Memories of highschool and grade school friends have not faded and seem so very recent even now. I would love to locate Susan Wetmore, from Sunset Drive. And also Donald Greening, and Elaine Forti, and any other students from our High School class in 1967. I will be returning to the Island for a visit this spring after being away since 1979 and I would look forward to hearing from anyone from the Island. Mary Nelson (B.

We were ranked number 9 twice on the Western New York Small School High School Basketball ranking list. We had a very good team. I was a transfer student from Ohio. My role for the team was rebound and play defense. I was a starter and 6th man on our boys b-bal team. I like to pass this on that I was in Desert Storm in 90-91 (ARMY 88-92). I was with the 1st AD 123rd Suport Batt. B Company 2nd platoon. Presently, I am a member of VFW post 7401 of Chandler AZ. I am a former Vice Commander of this post.

Comments: 'My dad Edward Zuchowski was the foreman of Beaver Island State Park and I lived in the park until I left in 1959. My parents lived in River Lea in the 60's and my kids spent time with them in the summers at this house. The last time we were on Grand Island we visited the site along the drive way and found the scar on the tree where my 2 young boys ran a golf cart into the tree. It is good to see you have furnished the house and have kept this historical house open to the public. I wish your society the best. I miss the river, we lived in a house that was at the extention of Baseline Rd. The house is no longer there. I loved walking along the river and remember sleding the hill by the commisioner's house and trying to make it out on to the ice. Some of the best rememberences of my kids were the summers they spent with my parents in the park. Sincerely, Norine.'

Comments: 'My grandfather was Henry Landel,Sr. My Dad was Selby Landel, he owned "Landel Electric Co." on Grand Island and wired many of the homes there. I attended Charlotte Sidway school the first year it opened. My granddad owned the farm from the border of the Dinsmore property to the Alt Boulevard on Love Road. I attended the celebration for the opening of the first bridge. I remember riding the Fix ferry before the bridges were built. I have pictures of the ice taken at the old Honeymoon bridge. I still have relatives on the Island. Shirley Schultz is a cousin, lives on Fix Road and the DeGloppers, Earl,Hazel Mallwitz and Benice Baily, deceased, who live on Fix Road. I remember the Island as it was from 1930 thru 1950's. The old Landel homestead still exists on Love Road, it has changed hands several times. My aunt's home is next door, then comes my parents home. There were 5 homes all side by side owned by the family. I pulled up the web site to view the Charlie DeGlopper memorial. As kids we used to all go down to the West River and would tease Charlie because he made such a big splash when diving. The memorial brought back many memories. I really enjoyed it and all the old pictures. The picture of the boys with the Williams family reminded me of when the Williams lady used to drive some of us to school before Sidway opened. Thanks for such a great article. Don't E-mail me until after end of July, I will be on vacation. Luella Landel Wike.'

Comments: 'By far, some of the best memories were on the Island. Almost 20 years living there, and I was young and times were good. Summers at Beaver Island state park. I remember working there during the summers back in the early 70's. I came back to visit one summer, and was floored when I saw the beach house gone. It was sad to see it missing, because there were a lot of memories inside. The little diner at the end had the best steak n cheese sandwich, and onion rings around. Me and my co-workers dropped some cash in that place. I go back to the Island every few years, and i drive down my old street Alt Blvd., and it seems so different. I have to admit, our old house looks better now then back then. Use to ride down to West River and fish a lot, bass were plentiful. I remember the Blizzard of 78, and loved it, lol. But my opinion of winter has sure changed with the times. Memories of Big Willy's and Vans, St. Angelo's, Sandy Beach, Buckhorn. Anyone remember Tuckers or Longs? We use to get on our bikes and ride (which seemed like an eternity) to get a bag of penny candy. Most of my memories consisted of a bunch that I grew up with on Alt, and you know who you are. Can't leave Mark W. from Fix out. Anyways, I can go on, but most of you fell asleep by now. But I do want to mention it just wasn't the Island that was all the memories. It was the time. When you had no cares in the world. You didn't have to sleep with one eye open then. I was fortunate to have grown up then. Best of times. I now live in Syracuse, married and have two daughters..'

Comments: 'I realize we can never "go back" but the years I spent growing up on the island not to mention the type of friendships we developed will never be forgotten. Swimming in the river at the Bedell House and Senn's dock off the old barge; Charlotte's homemade Clam broth at the Hot Dog Stand where most of us Ferry Villager's had our first chance at some quality on the job training, thanks to Charlotte Guenther and Betty McNamee! Sitting on the roof of the Bedell House watching the boat races cheering on Miss Bardol (course, Charlotte never knew we were up there-or so we thought). The bunch of us Christmas carolling thru the village; boy I could go on for hours but the important thing we learned was the value of quality friendships. Not just us kids but our parents, as well. Ferry Village was a very special place where everyone looked out for each other. I will always hold that sense of family close to me....'

Comments: 'I loved living on the Island, but as I got older (as we do and can't do a thing about it) I could not take the winters.

I now have a Great Granddaughter who will celebrate her 2nd birthday in July. I do come home for at least 1 week every July, and look forward to it every year. Happy New Year to all my Islander friends..'

I last was on the island at Kelly's County Store with my kids during this past Christmas. What a great place!

I was four when we moved here and can remember going to the one room schoolhouse just off the Baseline Road, I can't remember which road it was on but one winter day the wind blew so hard most of us got blown all the way out to the road and into the ditch, what fun! When the 'new' school, Charlotte Sidway opened, Roger Kaiser, I'm sure everyone remembers him, and I were the first ones off the bus and in the door, the first students ever to enter that school. We fought to see who could be first, but it ended in a tie and we squeezed in at the same time. Just one of a hundred memories I have growing up on the Island….'

Comments: 'Dan and I just visited the Island with our 2 teenage sons so that they could see what a winter was really like. They had a great time sledding at Beaver. We surprised Dan's family and our longtime friend Colleen 'Finn' with our visit. Our oldest son shadowed one of Colleens daughters to the High School for a day. We thought it was pretty neat for him to see where we went to school. The Island hasn't changed much, just seems to become more populated with each visit we make, we can understand why, it is a great place to raise a family, but way too cold for me. So we will stay here in warm sunny Florida..'

Comments: 'Hello Grand Island! Just moved here this past July from Orlando, FL. Yea, I hear that all the time - But listen: My wife, Debbie (Marlin) Hays was born on Grand Island and grew up here - Graduated GI High in '76 Went to nursing school in Buffalo and moved to Orlando in '80 where I met her, fell in love with and married her. Then came Matthew 5, and Brianna 2. 2 Wonderful children. We had talked for years about raising them here on GI and finally, I gave in but only after reading this page for years hearing how this is the best place in the world to grow up!!! So here we are. Matthew started Pre-K this fall. Thank You to all the Grand Island residents who have welcomed us to GI - I haven't met one yet who wasn't nice or whom I didn't like which is 180 degrees from Orlando!!! Thank You for welcoming us to our new home. Bill Hays.'

Comments: 'Picnics on Navy Island in the summer (when you could still take your boat over there). Swimming off the rocks at the end of Stony Point Road. The road race during the 1952 Centenial celebration. The best and most unique chowder in the world cooked over those outside open kettles and fires at the annual Firemens Picnic. Watching my dad, John, march in the Firemens Day parade. Bus 3 picking me up to go to Kindergarten. Mass at the old St Stephens Church and Fr. Schwegler. Standing in line with my dad at Kaegebein School so he could vote for "Ike". So many things...so many things...Grand Island was the best part of growing up...The house I grew up in is gone but it will always be "home". Happy 150 years to my "home town"..'
