Thank you to Pat COSTELLO Smith for the following report: "On Saturday, July 11, fifteen Milne Class of 1949 graduates (pictured above) enjoyed their four-hour 60th Reunion Luncheon in the North Room of the Century House Restaurant in Latham. Eight family members joined the celebration: Rhea Clark (Jim’s wife), Carmine Dandrea (Nancy’s husband), Susan Goldman (Alice’s daughter), Mark McDonough (Peter’s son), Georgiana Panton (Jim’s wife), Muncie Propp (Larry’s wife), Dick Smith (Pat’s husband), and Aggie Walker (Art’s wife).

"Many 1949 classmates still live in the Albany area. Nancy and Carmine drove to the reunion from their home in Pine City, NY. Marge, Pat, and Dick came up together from Long Island. Bob, Peter, and Mark traveled from their homes in New Hampshire and Connecticut. Alice flew from Maryland to Connecticut, and Susan drove them the rest of the way."


Thank you to Bob ALBERT for volunteering to become the Class Contact for the Class of 1953.


The following Milne alumni, attendees, and family members passed away recently. Please note that I rely upon the Albany Times Union and input from other alumni for this information, so if you become aware of someone who has passed away, please let me know. If a name is underlined, it represents a link to the obituary. The Times Union links are available free for 30 days after the initial posting; after 30 days you will have to use the Times Union archives (which now appear to be free also). Other newspapers may have different timetables.
