Wednesday's Walk ~ Lindenhurst High School

It's Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane when I link up with Jenilee of The Goodwin Family blog.

I graduated from Lindenhurst High School on Long Island in 1971.  This was my graduation picture.  I know that's many years ago. 

Since I'm active on Facebook, I've reconnected with many of my high school friends.  Even though we're all much older now, it's funny how easy it is to revert back to those days and the way we were. 

My friend Lou Sussman emailed me this clip from one of our school newspapers.  Thanks Lou!

The five of us pictured had just won an election for Lindenhurst HS Student Council Officers.

Richie Viverito was the President and he went on to Annapolis after graduation. He also married a good friend of mine, Donna.

I have no idea what happened to Glenn Mark who was Vice President.

Cindy Bunin married her high school sweetheart but I saw her on Facebook and she's now single again.

Kathy Spiller (on the far left) continues to be a friend of mine. After about 30 plus years, we reconnected at an informal reunion two years ago. She lives in Florida not far from my dad.  I'm on the far right.

These are a few of my high school friends.  We've all known each other for over 30 years.  Lois (who is standing right behind me in the dark blue top) and I were in Girl Scouts together.  My, how fast time goes by! 

I had to laugh at the article written about our election.  I think we won because we promised to allow seniors to leave the school grounds during lunch.  At that time, nobody could leave school grounds at all. 

Times have changed!
With the internet and Facebook, I'm learning that everything follows you.
Be sure to stop by Jenilee's and join in on Wednesday's Walk.
Blessings and love,

  3. Great picture, Debbie...

  4. Debbie:

    I really enjoy these old pictures and memories! How funny... not leaving the campus at lunchtime. I think the only reason we could leave campus is because they were building our new high school in Pasadena, so our campus was shared with the Jr. college. Every day (if I had some money in my pocket) I went across the street to Orange Julius and had a 'pickle pooch' & a small Orange Julius...

    Your memory sharing just brings mine right to the surface!

    I love the pic of you... you are even more beautiful now! Such fun...

    Love you,
