Unfortunately I won't be attending the reunion.  I don't want to be "lost" to VI friends.  I would assume that everyone at the party will ask, "What have you done for 50 years?"  So here is my story to pass on to those interested.
 
I spent my educational period at SUNYA getting a degree in Anthropology.  I couldn't find work when I got out (hard to believe with that degree) so I joined the state and was trained in computer programming and analysis.  After 5 years I left to work for Key Bank in their IT division.  15 years later I was married (to a boss' daughter) had 2 sons and was Vice President of Project Management (working bank mergers mostly).  The family moved to Ohio as part of the merger with Society bank.  After a short time many of us were downsized.  I then worked as an independent consultant and project manager.
 
After 15 years in Ohio and at the start of the bank crisis, I had a chance for a contract in Albany working at the Department of Criminal Justice.  My wife and I returned.  One son stayed in Cleveland, got married and has a daughter.  The other son came to Albany to go to Siena college and now runs his own small business locally.
 
My wife is now retired from Albany Medical Center where she was a Microbiologist in the lab.  I still work in NYS IT contracts either part time or semi retired depending on how you see the glass -- half full or half empty.  
 
I've taken up old time fiddle playing, become a Buddhist, started power lifting (I won a gold medal at the 2017 Liberty Games in NYS), visit our granddaughter as much as we can, take care of the house and I try to not create problems for my wife.
 
My telephone number is 518-275-6984.  We live at 38 Rosemont Street in Albany.
 
Please tell everyone if they are interested in communicating to e-mail, call or just like in the days gone by drop by the house for a nice glass of ice tea and a conversation.  
 
By the way, thank everyone involved in the reunion.  The world gets smaller and smaller with family and friends passing on.  Your efforts are appreciated.
 
Who knows what wonderful stories are to be told.

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the reunion. I am most grateful for the life lessons I learned at VI and still have my class ring, pin and sweatshirt. And the husband I met at a Siena mixer when I was a senior. Sending my regards to all and my prayers for those we have lost. Send Joanne a MessageSend Joanne a Message

50 years? It can't be that long! For some of my former classmates hanging out at the Albany Muni bar seems very appropriate. Unfortunately my wife Giselle and I are unable to attend. Sounds like a great time. Great job by the reunion committee in putting it together. Have fun! Send Timothy a MessageSend Timothy a Message

Thanks to the organizing committee for creating a memorable 55th reunion last night. It was sad to see all of our classmates faces who have departed especially just this year.
Brief Bio: I attended Pratt Institute for my undergrad degree and worked in NYC for 11 years as an interior designer. I moved to Honolulu in Feb. of 1982 and returned to graduate studies at the UH School of Arch. while working full time. I married Nadine Will, a LA lady in 1987. I started a new firm with a co-employee in 1988 and had the opportunity to work on projects around the world including many in the Antarctic (14 visits). I sold my stock to my partners in 2020 and now work a few hours a week from home. 
Living in Hawaii allows us the opportunity to bike, swim, run and work out year around. We still make it back to Albany one to two times a year to visit family and friends. 
Looking forward to seeing you all for our 60th! Aloha

Actor Married 2017-10-04 19:01:13
Hey everybody, I can't believe I am going to miss this big reunion.  Since 1967 I have worn a few different hats, first painting and paperhanging up in Albany(after I graduated from SUNY Albany, transferring there from Catholic U in my sophomore year). Also a brief stint coaching the VI track team in 1977, just before it closed.   While acting in a play at Capitol Rep in 1982, I met my future wife, Laralu Smith, and subsequently moved to NYC where we still live and work, primarily as actors with a lot of survival jobs thrown in to the mix, including working as standardized patients at local medical schools. The reunion has brought me back in touch with quite a few old friends, and for that I am truly grateful.  Have a blast this weekend, wish I could be there.
Still crazy after all these years, forever young and always thinking about running again, some day soon!
