     Just got lost in this sight for a while. Donít know why I was there, but interesting none-the-less....Graduated in 73, havenít really been back since.

I am living in Saratoga, CA. After I graduated from NFA, I got engineering degrees from RPI and CMU, then went to work in California as an engineer for almost 30 years. I just finished an law degree and volunteering twice a week at a family law clinic. Looking forward to "retirement" as an attorney in a few years. I am married and have two children.

Graduated from NFA in 1973, went on to get engineering degrees from RPI and Carnegie-Mellon, then went to work for Lawrence Livermore in California in 1978. I've worked for several other companies since, but I've been in the Bay Area working as a software engineer and patent agent. Genell and I have two kids, one just finished HS the other just starting.

  Greetings! Great site -  brings back a lot of fond memories and fun times with the coolest group of friends. Graduated in '71 and off to OCCC and then southward to Florida State University, with a BS degree in '75. After stops in a few different states, came back in '85 to Florida - where gators are in your backyard lake and hurricanes make its way every now and then.....but it's still the land of sun and fun. Have worked in the crazy world of retail over the years as a store manager, district manager, and buyer. Currently, I am Director of Purchasing for a large not-for-profit organization. I am married to a wonderful lady, have a son who served in the army - and (wow) even a grandson....and can't forget to mention our spoiled silky terrier. Beyond work and fun - we also own a few internet businesses.  If anyone remembers me - feel free to get in touch!

  Wow, what a trip. My cousin sent me this web page when I was trying to find out some info in Newburgh. Nothing like this, wow what great memories. I recall some people but not to many. Actually I think I must have been in some kind of warp zone back in those days. I'd sure like to do it all over again. Maybe I would get it right this time. Anyhow, I live in Sebastian Fl. now. For the last eleven yrs. Spent most of my life in the town of Newburgh and surrounding areas. Moved here to be closer to my oldest daughter and grandchildren. I have three children. Two girls one boy. Ages 41,36,and 33. Four grandchildren, two boys, and two girls. Ages 19,14,13 and 9. I certainly would love to hear from some classmates.  My walk down memory lane was fun, and even though some of those days were hard times, most of them were GOOD. Love to all,         Paula

  My mom (Virginia Williams now Jefferson) sent this site to my siblings and I so we could see a little bit into her past.  How cool it is!!!  She probably won't write anything but I will! She married my dad Joseph 52 years ago and moved to Peoria Illinois where my dad worked as a machinist for Caterpillar Inc for 30 years while mom was a home maker and mother of 6 daughters and 1 son.  She has two older sisters, Dot and Mary who are both well-Dot living between NY & IL and Mary living in TN their husbands are both deceased.  They also have 2 brothers Dan and Walt who I didn't see in any of the books therefore don't believe they graduated.  Anyway for anyone who knew them Walt is living in TN with his wife of 50 years Adia & Dan is living in IL with his wife Linda.  great job on this site! It was nice to see my mom with her high school class.

Paul R. Hedenus  1964 
   I attended NFA during my sophomore and junior year and moved to Willow Grove, Pa. the summer of 1963. I would have been in the 1964 graduation class of 1964. Since then I've attended Penn State University (one year), Drexel University & a local Community College. Never did get a degree. I Joined the Air Force Reserves right after Penn State. I worked for the Philadelphia Electric Company for almost 34 years. I retired at 55 years old. I told them on 9/11 I was leaving, and left on 11/01 that year. I've been married and divorced twice, and have two daughters and two grandchildren with another due in July. I've been single since 1984. I still live in Willow Grove, Pa. and usually have my grand kids spend the weekend with me so they can play with their friends. My daughter had lived with me since she was 16 and stayed after she got married, so the kids consider this their second house now. Looking thought the yearbook brought back many pleasant memories. I noticed that Ellen Pierrehumbert is not listed. I went out with her for most of my NFA years. I recognized many faces. Candy Hanscom, Jan Hinsdale, Terry Tatman and Linda Pierrehumbert. My bowling team Bill Shields & Paul Shickle. Fred Rieber from class of 1963. I was sad to discover Tom Agnew & Patricia FitzPatrick are no longer with us. I actually ran into Tom when I was at Penn State. I went out with Pat only once but remember her as a super person...........I guess I've bored you long enough.

I'm retired and looking for an old friend. I was in the class of '53 but left in Nov of '52. Mr. Williams was the chorus direct at the time but I guess ready to retire. A women took his place I believe. I attended St. Georges church there in Newburgh. So, I guess I'm out here trying to grab a hold of some memories. I would be interested in communicating with anyone of the era referenced above. Bill has been extremely helpful along with Ed Fullerton.

  Hi Bill, From one of the Rottmeier twins-Class of 75 My Dad, who lives in Ponce Inlet Fla, told me about your website.  This is great. Since graduating NFA, I went to Pace University and worked in Boston in Public Accounting for KPMG.  I have since moved to Nantucket MA in 2000, and there I've worked for Nantucket Bank for 5yrs, and now work as Controller for a Lumber & Houseware company (the Home Depot of Nantucket).  I'm involved with the community as the Treasurer of the Chamber of Commerce and do accounting for the Hospice foundation on Nantucket.  I also have a 28 year old son who is attending college at Akron University in Ohio.  I'm sorry that I couldn't make it to the last reunion(30yrs), but my twin sister made it and told me she had a great time.  We still keep in touch with our best friend Pam Townsend, with a ski trip every January up in North Conway NH.   I tried to attach a picture of my sister Joanie, me and Pam from our last trip but couldn't seem to get it to attach.  I'll send one if you can give me an email address.     Thanks Patty


Joanie Rottmeier, Pam Townsend, Patty Rottmeier

        Class of 66. Very nice job. Talk about digging up the past. I left Newburgh in 1977 and headed South. Have been in Dallas Texas on and off since then. My wife Karen of 37 years (Karen Tallarico - Class of 67) is here along with 3 kids and 1 grandchild. I retired for AT&T and am currently working on my second career. NFA brings back some of my most fondest memories and you have done a great job.

Son Alex Jr & his wife, My daughters Kristen & Wendi (oldest) and grandson Cayden 7
and me in the back ground with Karen in Hawaii.

         I have visited this site often and think back to the good ole day patrolling the hallowed halls of NFA. I guess it's old timers setting in. The site is great and I pass it on to other NFA grads whenever possible. Thanks for the memories.

Richard Greenblatt  1966
      After graduation, I attended Bucknell, graduating with a BA in 1970. Then I went to Brandeis for a masters in anthropology, but left the program and became a silversmith. I returned to the Susquehana valley to make jewelry and await the graduation of Louise Ballinger in 1972. We were married on a farm (where the band Fred lived) in Lewisburg the day she graduated.
     Some of you will recall that 1972 was the year of the Watergate break in. When the country did not seem to be able to connect the dots to CREEP (it still amazes me that Nixon would have the gall to use this acronym), we left for Europe with no intention of returning. Ten months of hitch hiking and camping in Europe and Asia taught us that despite the slow-mindedness of the electorate, there's no place like home, so we tapped our slippers together and made our way back to the US.
     After some agonizing, I ultimately went to law school, worked for Leonard Boudin on constitutional law problems, graduated with enough knowledge to pass the bar and soon after joined my father's law firm in Newburgh.
      In the meantime, Louise got her masters in teaching and started at a private elementary school in Newburgh.
     Sometime in there we had two children: Elizabeth (now 27) and Jonah (now 24). We bought a house on a dirt road in Cornwall and we haven't left much since then. We are now enjoying our empty nest while Louise anxiously waits for grandchildren to materialize.
      I stayed with my father's firm until he became too sick to remain. I then bailed out for a regular job with a friend's law firm where I can concentrate on being a lawyer, rather than a manager. My work is now limited to personal injury matters, a nice, relatively concise field compared to the general litigation practice which nearly consumed me for 25 years. I hope to remain here until I can retire (although I still haven't grasped the concept).
     If it ever snows again, we will slap on our skinny skis and head out the back door into the Black Rock Forest. Failing that, we enjoy mountain biking and hiking the same terrain, a good movie now and then, and visits to our daughter in Berkeley, CA (our son lives in Cornwall, so we see him often).
     I could go on and on (I am, after all is said and done, a trial lawyer and not the short-winded kind) but I have to go grind potatoes for Chanukah.

They are definitely in my prayers.

  Today the Class of '61 held it 45th class reunion at Rich Hartley's (formerly the Minuteman) in New Windsor. We had a fantastic turnout. We decided to locate a venue that would meet our needs. Hartley's definitely did that for us. We ran a BarBQ with access to inside and outside facilities. The menu was varied (Brisket, Chicken, Sausage & Peppers, Hamburgers/ Hot Dogs, corn on the cob, watermelon, and all types of salads). Draught beer, soda and bottled water were included. The food was excellent. The service was superb. This turned out to be better suited than a traditional sit down dinner. We all were able to mingle with everyone there, as opposed to being seated with a few folks and isolated from the rest of the class. I highly recommend this type of setting as well as Hartley's, the site that we chose. Jack Cook , Reunion Committee Chair, Class of '61

    I'm very impressed with this site. It's so much fun to look at all the yearbooks. I'm a graduate of 1974, so I'm very glad to see our yearbook finally up. I live out here on the "left coast" up in Northern California, in Fairfield. Our claim to fame is, this is where they make Jelly Belly's. I've been out here for 26 years and still miss NY.  I met my husband when he was attending West Point. He left in his Junior year and finished college out here. We have two children 23 and 20. Our daughter is getting married in two weeks. I still read the Middletown Record online at least once a week. I think the thing I miss most about NY is the food and the weather. I really miss 4 seasons. Out here when it gets to 55 degrees, everyone is freezing. The only time I where a coat is when it's raining in the winter. I try to get back to Newburgh at least once a year for my family reunion in Highland Falls. I keep in touch with Donna Paulus and Gail Craig. I would love to hear from some of you. If any one has heard from Mary DuFour, class of 1976, I'd love to hear from her.

  Hi Bill, Great job with this web site. I graduated in the class of 1968.Since leaving school I have worked as a mechanic, had my legs crushed between two cars which lead to 2 years of rehab. I could not serve in the Armed forces due to this accident. I then went to work on the NYS Thruway working on the overpass bridges. Since 1969 I have  been working at IBM in East Fishkill. And yes I am still there. I live in Montgomery and have been married 35 years. My wife's name is Linda. We have no children. We enjoy traveling and we do that a lot. I have attended most of the reunions and have seen many people I have not seen in years. I still hang out with my best friend from high school, Bob Bell.  Again, great job on this web site.          Scotty

Thanks so much for this website.  I lost my Yearbook when I moved from Wallkill, NY to Pennsylvania 30 years ago.  It is great to 'catch up' with these pages.  I have 3 children.  1 daughter living in Pine Bush and 1 daughter and 1 son living in PA.  I am retired and loving every minute of it.  I do get to Pine Bush a couple of times a year and do see a couple of my classmates but can't wait until our next reunion to see everyone.     Thanks again.     Bev (Rhyne) Jones  Class of '57
First signing: Thanks ever so much.  This is the greatest web site. Graduated "57" Married 2X  3 Children - Brenda, Teri & Danny  Living in Pennsylvania

      Going down memory lane is such fun!  Thank you so much for this wonderful website! I was so saddened though by the many classmates who have already passed. I've been married to Ron Cunningham/ Chuckles (class of '68) and living in NH since 1979.  We have two great sons Derek, 30 and Cory, 28.  Life has been good to us but we're still not grandparents!!! I'm an optical sales rep for a major frame manufacturer which keep me on my toes covering parts of New England.
I'd love to hear from my former classmates     Be well

     Bill has done an awesome job in developing and maintaining this NFA yearbook site.  His efforts are deeply appreciated by all who care about our NFA high school class.....  I am still in Newburgh.   We  (Myself and Bill Bell/ NFA 65')  sold our company and took early retirement on 01'       After seeing so many of our classmates passing on, we all should take the time necessary to slow down & smell the roses. We should enjoy & cherish everyday as if it were our last. Family and health are precious. Don't take either for granted!
First signing: Where you are living ? Orange Lake, New York What you did since graduating: Started business in Newburgh 1970 after leaving IBM. Grew into 5 states over 31 years and sold to TYCO International 2001. Currently retired

      Hello, It was a long time ago in another galaxy, but I digress.  I am out in beautiful Washington state, Olympia, WA  as far away as one can be  from Newburgh and still be in the lower 48!  Hope whoever reads this remembers what it was like all those years ago.  By the way, I now go by the first name of Jake.  Not only did I change geographical location but my moniker as well.  Some say most people do change significantly as we age HOW ABOUT YOU?            Jake

  Billy Norvell has done a great job on this web site!!  I must have missed, or not heard about the 40th reunion of the great class of '1965'last year. It would have been fantastic to see my classmates. John Smith recently informed me about this site, which I have really enjoyed browsing!! The Best to everyone that I know and hope to see/ hear from you soon...
