The weekend of Jun. 13 to Jun. 15 saw the 50-year reunion of the graduating class 1969 from S.S. Seward Institute in Florida, NY.
Friday evening a meet-and-greet gathering with dinner was held at Rookie’s Pizzeria on N. Main St. and Saturday afternoon the class was treated to a tour of their alma mater. They were delighted to not only see the updates that have happened through the years but pleased in recognizing the beautiful history of the school that has been left intact.
That led to much discussion about teachers, classrooms, lockers and school “antics” memories. As is a tradition they posed in front of the William Henry Seward monument, much like they did in their senior year.
The graduate that came from the farthest distance was Joan Kamrowski Malek who resides in California. They joined the graduating class of 2019 at the Middletown Elks Lodge for a banquet, introductions and awards for the seniors. Introductions for the 50-year class were made by class president, Louis Sosler. It was a great weekend for the Spartans.
