--------INDIAN SUMMER 48--------

June 17, 2023

The picnic was great! The weather was perfect along with the food and friends! We had 55 attendees, 42 classmates and 13 guests. Unfortunately, there were 13 no shows or we would have had 68. Stu did a fabulous job once again! Think about it. Planning a meal for 68 people, the grocery list, the shopping, making the sauces, borrowing smokers, loading up the vehicle, coming early to get things going, cooking and timing the food, breaking down the smokers, cleaning up, packing up the supplies and smokers, loading the vehicles, getting home and unloading it all again and returning the smokers. I'm exhausted just thinking about it! Thank you Stu. We are all unbelievably grateful for your expertise and enthusiasm for making this event happen for all of us!! We also need to thank Mike as well as he hung in there as Stu's right hand man the entire day!

Don Abbott came the farthest from Seattle, Washington and Don Travis came from Slatington, Pennsylvania.

Thanks to everyone that donated to the class! We collected $150 in the jug for future events! 

We have one more "INDIAN SUMMER" before our 50th reunion coming up in two years in 2025!! Plan ahead!!

Be well and stay healthy friends!

"INDIANS FOREVER"

Our class Holiday get together this year at Whiskey River Pub and Grill on River St was a huge success with 40 classmates, spouses and friends attending. 

 


Jan Giovati's famous holiday lunch was also a fabulous time. Jan certainly out does herself and creates a wonderful experience for our lady indians! Every year we get a few more lady indians to join in the fun. Ellen Schindler, Nancy Sengle and Vickie Marzouk were the newbies this year making the luncheon total 22.  Our holiday fund raiser raised $215 and 10 bags of groceries! I was overwhelmed with the donations! We even had donations from classmates that didn't attend the lunch at Jan's. Thanks fellas!

IN MEMORY

"Death can show us the way, for when we know and understand completely that our time on this Earth is limited, and that we have no way of knowing when it will be over, then we must live each day as if it were the only one we had.
Life is so fragile;
EVERY DAY IS A GIFT . . ."

This page lists the names of our deceased alumni. We have very limited information regarding the dates or circumstances of their passing as well as where their path took them after IHS up until their passing.
If any of our information is incorrect or you have information concerning these alumni; please email me at phil.parcells@gmail.com.
 
We were saddened to learn of their passing; so this webpage was created so that we can pay tribute to their memory and to know that they will not be forgotten.
You may also post your memory of these classmates on their In Memory page. Click on the In Memory link at the top of the page and then click the "Post Comment" button. Please be honorable to their memory in your posts.

"To live in hearts we leave behind, Is not to die."

IHS ALMA MATER
 
 Hail, Hail Irondequoit our Alma Mater dear.
We praise thee for thy nobleness, thy honor we revere;
and though the years swiftly pass away, our love shall never die.
We have been inspired by thee the highest aims to try.
 
Hail, Hail Irondequoit, may sunshine fill thy halls;
and memories of thy sons and daughters echo from thy walls.
From thee we gained wisdom, honesty, leadership and skill.
Irondequoit where ere we travel, Alma Mater still.
