CLASS OF 1957
September 3, 2009, a group of alumni from the Class of 1957 held
a small class picnic at "The Crossings," a Town Park on
Albany-Shaker Road in Colonie, NY. According to Dan Brown, Class
Contact, "The weather was perfect and we spent the afternoon
in a beautiful, secluded, quiet place in the park."

THEODORE H. FOSSIECK SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT
I was recently notified that
Nicole Branchini,whose mother graduated from
Milne, received a $500 Dr. Theodore H. Fossieck Scholarship
for the current school year. Nicole was also awarded this
scholarship in 2007 and 2008. Congratulations, Nicole!
You may recall that Dr. Theodore H. Fossieck, principal of the
Milne School from 1948 to 1972, established an annual scholarship
to the University at Albany for students who are
descendents of a Milne School graduate or faculty member.
Application information for next year will be posted in an early
spring alumni newsletter.
YOUR FIRST LOVE MAY BE YOUR LAST
It's nice to receive
"happy" news occasionally. From Shauna DONLEY McNally,
Class of '68:
"Tim McNally (Class of
'67) and I went steady for Tim's junior and senior
years. When Tim graduated, my family moved to Massachusetts
so although I attended Milne grades 7-11, I missed my senior year
there. Tim and I broke up, married other people, and lost touch until a
couple of years ago when we found each other on classmates.com.
"We were married on August 1st and now live on a horse farm
in Pennsylvania, where I teach special needs children how to ride
while Tim coaches the women's soccer team at Montgomery
County Community College.
"Sometimes your first love really is your last
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.
RICKELS, Class of 1948, and brother of Edward H. RICKELS,
Class of 1945, passed away on Thursday, September 3,
