   The first photo shown was fun to be apart of. As our neighbhorhood gang gathered for the picture, more and more "Village" kids were spotted in the crowd and called to pose with us. No doubt there are a few other photos taken at the same time, with even more of us who grew up on Love Road and East Park in the 1940s and 50s. Kneeling in front (left) Susan Turnbull, Lynn Cullen Euse, Marianne Lehane Ward, Myrna Dworak Boerschig, Teddy Klingel Linenfelser and Molly McMahon Powers; (back) Judy Hanna Hathaway, Nancy Seifert Dinan, Barbara Glor Martin, Peggy Boettcher Fuller, Doris Harding Watson, Pat Geary Kostenbauder, Sue Nailor Bauer, Judy Nailor Meer, Kathy Boettcher Stisser, Peter Glor, Bernie Glor Pagliaro, Peter McMahon, Penny Ball, Sharon Benzing Minet, Brent Minet, Ellen Glor, Pam Ball Fries, Elizabeth Glor Allen and Dan McMahon.
   Shown in the second photo in front are Diane Hamilton Mossman, Nanette Jacobs Haller; (standing left) Barbara Glor Martin, Marianne Lehane Ward, Susan Turnbull, Martha Uonites Dilliot, Pat Gardner Hardman, Skip Trautman (Class of '54), Judy Hanna Hathaway, Carleen Alt Taylor and Janet Mistretta Goodsell.
   The third photo is Don Burns, Class of '54, shown with the book he published this year - "Piano People."
   The last two photos are of Janet Mistretta Goodsell and Judy Hanna Hathaway, and Marianne Lehane Ward, Lyn Laman and Judy Hanna Hathaway (Teddy Klingel Linenfelser is on left with back to camera and Jim Tranter, far right.)

Reservations Outnumber Last Two Sidway School Reunions
A second Sidway Reunion notice mailed last month to those associated with the school graduating classes of 1937-1963 has brought in a hefty number of reunion reservations. At this point in time, reservations outnumber the 1996 reunion by 150 and more are coming in daily, and from as far away as California. Contact Teddy "Klingel" Linenfelser, Peggy McNulty or Shorty Vanthoff or any member of the committee if you did not receive the mailing which included a tentative schedule of Sesquicentennial events taking place around the Saturday, July 6, 2002 date of the reunion.

Notice Mailed To All Sidway Students 1937-1963
A second Sidway Reunion 1937-1963 notice was mailed Monday, February 11, 2002 to those associated with the school graduating classes. Please contact Teddy "Klingel" Linenfelser or Peggy McNulty or any member of the committee if you did not receive this mailing which includes a tentative schedule of Sesquicentennial events taking place around the Saturday, July 6, 2002 date of the reunion.

Sidway Reunion Committee To Send 2nd Notice
   Members of the 1937-1963 Charlotte Sidway School graduation classes, and all those who were, at any time, in the classes of '37-'63, will be sent a second Sidway School reunion notice which will also include information on the Sesquicentennial being held on Grand Island this coming year.
   Classmates are urged to let the committee know of address changes. For those reading of the reunion here for the first time, a reunion notice was mailed in the spring of 2001. If you did not receive yours, the committee does not have your address. Emails may be sent to
Teddy "Klingel" Linenfelser or Peggy McNulty.
   The Sesquicentennial Program Book committee is looking for various old photos including Sidway School as it looked when it opened in 1937 and Batsfords on East River Road in Sandy Beach. Photos may be emailed or mailed to Teddy Linenfelser, Town Historian, 2098 Ferry Road, Grand Island, NY 14072.

Sidway Classmates Invited
To Be Part of Sesquicentennial Book
An historic program book to commemorate the Island's Sesquicentennial is being produced with Island history and old photos as well as greetings from Isle residents and those across the nation. Complete information on how to be a part of Grand Island's history book may be found by clicking Sesquicentennial and scrolling down.

2002 Sidway Reunion

and the Grand Island Sesquicentennial

A Sidway School Reunion of the 1937-1963 graduation classes, and all those who were, at any time, in the classes of '37-'63, is being planned in conjunction with the Grand Island Sesquicentennial (1852-2002).

Print out the form below and mail it to us as soon as possible. We are trying to reach as many Sidway students ('37-'63) via e-mail as possible. It will save the committee future postage money that will help us better the event.

Dear Classmates, Teachers and Staff,

   A Charlotte Sidway School Reunion will take place at the Charles N. DeGlopper Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #9249 Pavilion, 2121 Grand Island Blvd., on Saturday, July 6, 2002. In conjunction with the celebration of Grand Islandís Sesquicentennial, we invite you to join us for our third Sidway reunion.

   As time goes by, we think back to our formative years with fond memories. We are hopeful that those who were not able to attend the 1990 and 1996 Sidway reunions will be able to join us, and we look forward to seeing everyone on July 6, 2002.

   A week of Sesquicentennial events, highlighted by a mammoth Fourth of July Parade, is being planned to celebrate the 150 years of Grand Island's township.
