Christina Jennaco - 2000 -knocco21@aol.com - SUNY College at Oneonta - 2000.10.02
Memories: My favorite memories have to be 10th grade Spirit Night (go red), Homecoming 1999, painting all of the banners, Singled Out, Emmy Night (the Backstreet Boys), cutting yearbook everyday, me and Carri To's obsession with Mr. Avena (calling him at 2:00am and hanging up, taking any class that he taught, coming in late, T-B for lunch everyday, getting late passes from Mrs. Caroll, making up every excuse to Mrs. Lopos why me and Carri couldn't play, and telling her all the places we had to go for class officer stuff, the "hall nazi", etc, most of all being a class officer for Mr. Sherman for all four years... it goes quick... but I wouldn't change a thing...

Jack Jacobsen - 1962 - jnorwy@aol.com - Millersville, MD - 2000.10.03
Comments: It was such a great joy for me to see the note from Mr. Aiello. He was an inspiration to many of the things that I have attempted throughout my life. I first came under his scrutiny in elementary school when he was my gym teacher (believe it was at Summit Lane). Later on, from junior high to DAHS we came into almost daily contact. Most of the time because I was teetering on the "bad" side of him and Mr. Graham. Just want to let him know that many of us still think of him often and thank him for his "tutelege." Jack Jacobsen
P.S. I am very sad to hear about the death of Mr. Reilly, our academic leader.

Looking for: Lois Tucker
Memories: I noticed in the '65 list that Bernard "Bunny" Goldstein died in 1970. Bunny was a pal of mine. We used to bowl together and shoot some pool down at the South Village Green pool hall. I always remember feeling somewhat privileged to get out of that pool hall alive but I always felt safe with Bunny. He was a little guy, but he had a lot of personality and I don't remember anybody f'ing around with him. One Saturday night in the Winter of '63 I got a call from Bunny asking me if I wanted to shoot some pool. My parents were, for the most part, a pair of real a'-holes, but they didn't mess with me too much as long as they thought I wasn't out looking to get laid. Shooting pool in a disreputable pool hall was, for them, much more respectable than dating, so they let me out. Bunny picked me up in a brand new Cadillac and we sped through town on the icy roads. I relaxed in the front seat exhilarating in the skids on the sleek roads as Bunny hit the brakes hard at every opportunity. I looked at him and asked' "Hey, whose car is this?" He gave me a quick glance and said, "I don't know." It was then that I realized that we were in a stolen car. The ramifications of grand larceny beyond me, I just laughed and enjoyed the ride. We got to the South Green and the dirty old man at the desk gave us a hard look as he always did, but looked to the color of our money, which was good. We shot nineball, the game to play there. Some tough guys were about but they had other things on their mind besides beating up on two pansies from Division High. They were right about me but Bunny always gave the appearance of being armed. We shot some games, and with Bunny calling the shots, we left after a few hours and he drove me home. I never saw much of Bunny again after that, although I think we did bowl a few games. He didn't have long to live. Bunny was a great kid, good for a lot of laughs and I'm real sorry to hear that he died so young. If his parents and siblings ever get this message, please know that Bunny was a real credit to the human race. He always made me feel real welcome. I don't know what happened but I guess he died with his boots on. I'm sure that's how he wanted to go. JE

Would love to hear from old friends.

Linda McDonald (now Linda McDonald-Healey) - 1971 - lh1753@aol.com - Greenlawn, NY - 2000.10.08
Memories: The memories are endless and the fun part is we're still making them, especially with the on-going plans for our 30th (yes, you heard correctly 3-0) reunion next year. Old memories that pop into my mind... hiding out in the canteen, Senior Variety Show, Senior prom weekend. Going to watch the guys play football and baseball.. Our parties and picnics. Good times with good friends.
Comments: I'm one of the lucky ones, I still get a chance to commiserate with the ol' gang. I've had the great opportunity in life to move back to the Island after living down south for a few years and even during my "sentence" in Alabama - I was able to keep in touch with Levittown (mom still lives on Wolcott Rd.) Five McDonalds have graduated from Division -- and we're all proud of our Levittown heritage.

Judy Zuckerman (now Judy Fine) - 1974 - tjf1000@juno.com - Old Greenwich, CT - 2000.10.09
Memories: When the dress code got abolished around 1969 and girls were finally allowed to wear pants to school; Mr. Danhieux's biology class; Integrated Studies.
Comments: I'm happily married to the guy I went to the prom with (anyone remember him?) and we have one daughter.
I've experienced some health problems over the past 22 years due to DES exposure.  DES was a drug heavily marketed to obstetricians from 1941 to 1971 and was particularly heavily prescribed in our area to our mothers' generation during their pregnancies with us, both to prevent recurrence of miscarriage and sometimes even to women with no history of problems.  I've been in touch with other DAHS alumni who were exposed & I'm sure we can't be the only ones.  I encourage everyone to check with their mother to see if she took DES during any of her pregnancies. Check out the DES warning page for more details.

Dan Picha - 1998 - stigger108@aol.com (bad e-mail 2003.03.27) - New Paltz & Levittown - 2000.10.10
Memories: My favorite memory is when Mike Thomas threw around the fake testicle, when they were giving us the movie on the testicular cancer awarness. Nurse Keys cried but it was so hilarious. Coach Smith made us run and do push-ups but it was well worth. The next year the school had a different approach to teaching us.
Comments: I know I wasn't the nicest to everyone at school, and I said a lot of things I kinda didn't mean that I thought were funny at the time, but I realize now they were just mean, so if anyone feels that way maybe we can talk about it over a cup of coffee or something.

Bob Luginbuhl - 1969 - rluginbuhl@cs.com - Montgomery, AL - 2000.10.10
1969 20th Reunion Comments: Had a blast at the reunion! Great seeing all of you. Looking forward to the next one. Special thanks to Louie Lozito for getting there early and keeping me from leaving the Marriott after not recognizing the first 15 people!! For all the ladies that danced that night with me... WOW!!! Thanks Donna, Eileen, Alison, and Gail... I had no idea you all were going to turn out so great looking!! For George Harvey... thanks for not dying in Vietnam, like I was told... I would have missed your humor. For my good friend, Fred Kiesecker, thanks for helping to make the evening fun. For all the people I was meeting for really the first time, I'm looking forward to seeing you again next reunion. A special thanks to stunning Paula for giving me the greatest complement of the night. All in all I came in apprehensively but had a great night. Thanks to the reunion committee and all who attended. Bob Luginbuhl

Bob Mancino / "Monk" - 1969 - rmancino@jps.net - Clearlake, Calif. - 2000.10.11
Comments: Just want to say that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the reunion, everybody looked good especially Paula Plass, Andrea Silverstein, Barbara Boyer, Eileen O'Brien and Janice Altman... the years have treated you very kindly. Next time this happens I hope we can combine classes '68 and '70 to the mix and maybe have the reunion in some place like Las Vegas, but New York will do. Again, it was great seein' everyone and for those that didn't go to bad 'cause U missed something good.
All the very best, "The Monk"

Christina Masel (now Christina Hughes) - 1969 - maseltov37@stny.rr.com - Binghamton, NY - 2000.10.11
Memories: Sleeping in T.E., watching kids jump when Mr. Murphy would kick the trash can in Trig to keep us alert, learning more chemistry when Jeff Hesekiel taught Mr. Corey's class, being the only girl in T.E. (YES!), listening to Mr. Levy's weird stories...
Comments: A huge thank you to Janis Altman Fusaro, Donna Pape Porter, and Edith Arthur for a wonderful reunion (class of '69)! The food, music, and ballroom were great, but it was being together with so many of the class of 1969 after 31 years that was the best part of all. Many thanks to all that came, despite the travel time and expense. I heard someone yell "let's do it again in 5 years". I second the motion. It was a lot of fun and I am so happy that I was there. Thanks again to Janis, Donna, and Edith. God bless the class of '69!

Paul Beswick - 2001 - pb1015@aol.com - 2000.10.12

Me and Murph chillin' in McD's office cause we're special officers. And the crazy parties in the freezing cold.
I'm not gone yet, but I know, after June I will miss the people who have made growing up a fun and learning process.
MRS. MCDONALD will always be my honorary mother in these halls, Stritzl/Carden always could make me smile, Wade/Corin-for helping me to flourish my talent -- to name a few
I vow to make my last year here the best - and I'll probably be organizing the reunions in the future-- :o)

2) Hangin out at the Deli
3) Hangin out on the bleachers!
4) Daversa's house (need I say more)
5) Fighting with Lynn (we ended up getting married)
6) Our class tried to break the record for most consecutive keg paties in a four year period. I think it still stands today!
Comments: I actually cleaned-up nicely after "high" school. Fortunately, I survived all of the drugs & alcohol and quit cold-turkey directly after graduating. Me and Lynn got back together in 1993 and got married in 1995. Kayla was born that summer, then Kyle in 1998. We have our hands full but I still see some of my freinds from school on a regular basis. I'm currently producing trade-shows and conferences nationwide. I can't wait for the re-union next year. Holy S**t, where did ten years go??? I'd give my right arm just to go back for a day!

John Egan - 1964 - jegan@west.net - Santa Barbara, Ca. - 2000.10.26
Looking for: Lois Tucker
Memories: In September of 1963 I saw the loveliest thing I'd ever seen at Division High. On the first day of class, on the side blackboard of room 204 (one of the rooms in the "new wing" which faced Division Ave.) was THE TREE ON INDO-EUROPEAN LANGUAGES, painstakingly painted on the side blackboard. It was really well done. The Indo-European root language was at the base and every language, such as Romance, (with a "leaf" for French & Spanish) or Germanic (with the appropriate "leaf" in sweet pastels for Dutch & Flemish, etc.) was painted above, with great care in various colors. I looked upon the pastel painting and wondered, "This won't last for one day." How wrong I was.

That day, our Principal, James R. Reilly told us "you are the worst senior class in the history of Division High." Even then, as a 17-year old idiot, I wondered what was the evidence to lead him to such a conclusion. I wanted to say something, but there were a lot of things I wanted to scream out about anyway, so I kept silent. This latest stupidity, from our hushed and invisible leader, only made me reflect that his words would only create the reality he wanted. (I guess I shoulda' been a psychologist). I knew we were good people and we didn't deserve to be spat upon like that. What we did with the Tree of Indo-European Languages, in fact, will speak about our care, the Class of 1964's, heed for the finer things in life.

The tree was painted by Mr. Edwin Brackin our English teacher. The thing that interested me most about the tree was the Celtic language section. I would have been really interesting to learn about the Scots, and Cornish and Welsh, peoples I didn't learn about till graduate school. Unfortunately, Mr. Brackin never spoke about the Celtic languages, nor about any other language, including English. He quickly revealed himself to be a moron. However the tree stood! Week after week, it stood, never marred, never so much as brushed. It stood, as a constant reminder of OUR RESPECT FOR CULTURE. As September rolled into October the tree stood, perfect in form. No one person touched it until November when it was erased and Mr. Brackin fired and replaced. Herbie Blades told me he erased it but I always felt he lied about that. I suspect Herbie wanted to be the one to have erased it, but even he had too much class. The person who erased the tree had to have been far more cynical than Herbie. I suspect it was an administrator. Since we had all preserved the tree for so long, the destroyer would have been someone very cynical and Herbie Blades was not that. We had some fools among our group, and some tough fighters too. But none of us destroyed that tree. JE

Memories: Right now I am in the computer room, not typing up my report like I am supposed to be doing. Well anyways. The best memories was Trial Law with Avena. Every girl in this class only joined up because they think he is so adorable. (awwww) The torture my friend has to go through today with the Hall Nazi in detention. (hahaha) The homecoming Party, which was hysterical (you had to be there) that's about it for now.

Penny Schiller - 1969 - pennyoncape@hotmail.com - Cape Cod - 2000.10.27
Comments: I can't put a face to John Egan but I loved reading his stories about Bunny -- my heart stopped and a smile slowly engulfed my face and spirit just seeing his name in print and thinking about my old friend. My favorite Bunny story goes like this... so, Johnny Ryan gets his hands on this fire extingusher... one of those big red ones and we fill'r up with water and drive around town with this giant watergun -- what a great time... we would see a bunch of kids on a street corner and drive by and just soak them... old folk walking dogs-them too... we were merciless... and all the while hilarious laughter filled the car ---- so it was John and me and Regerio was driving and we pick Bunny up at his house. We didn't get about two blocks and there's this musclebound guy walking some foo foo poodlish type dog -- we nail'm right in his face and we're all laughing above the sounds of Bunny screaming in that voice of his (that always sounded like laughter itself) and he's saying - "What are you crazy..??? That's my neighbor -- he works out in a gym (please remember folks NO ONE worked out in a gym in 1969) but we don't care... we continue to hose people and laugh our heads off while we head to buy some beer at that little place on Newbridge... down from the apartments... anyway, Bunny goes in to buy -- I'm sitting in the back seat with Ryan and all of a sudden I see these hands and arms come through the open front window and close around Regerios neck -- yep-Bunny's neighbor yelling "You think that's funny???" To this day I still don't know if the guy just happened to be there or if he followed us in his car... but I have promised myself I will get another big red fire extinguisher and go play before I die.

Memories: I ended up going to Division because of the Technical Electronics Classes. All of my friends went to Memorial, but I managed to make so many more at Division. I went to the 20th reunion and loved seeing all my old classmates. I was disappointed when the 25th fell through. I hope we can get together again in the future. I remember making the bowling team a couple of years in a row, but wasn't allowed to compete. My father passed away in my sophomore year. He and my mother were on a mixed league in North Levittown. They voted to allow me to replace him even though I was under age (15). Even though they wrote a letter to the school that I didn't put in, or take any prize money, I still wasn't allowed on the team. Looking back, my bowling with my mother was the only thing that got her out of the house those first few years. But, I still would have loved to bowl for the school team. I remember my math teacher that year, Mr Simes. He really cared and helped me through a difficult time. I will never forget him.
Comments: Anyway, for myself, I'm married for 33 years, have 2 children and 2 grandchildren who I adore. I never got into electrical engineering, but I own my own computer consulting company. I live in Massapequa, NY, and have a condo in Boca Raton. I would love to hear from anyone in our class especially those mentioned above. Take care everyone.

Memories: Still hanging out with Nicole, Matt, and Chris. Favorite moments: GIRLS LACROSSE TEAM... never would have been one with out me. I guess it would also be hanging out behind spit. Now that was a good time, and I know everyone can relate. Hanging out back there getting in trouble, meeting people, can't do that anymore. Too bad for all who never experienced that... And of course Mr. Zackers' english class, he was the best teacher you could ever have. And last, the favorite moments were the way the cliques were always in war, that had to be more like the funniest moments. Im glad I was a bystander because it was hysterical. I know you are all laughing now!!! Hope all is well with everyone, and that everyone is happy. Always stay that way... can't wait to see everyone again in the future...

Those that attended had a great time at the "informal" 1974-1975 reunion we had last year at a restaurant / bar in Farmingdale. The only thing missing was more of you being there with us.
Rekindling old friendships and making new friends with people you hardly knew is great fun and doing it without the only objective of getting laid can really be enjoyable! I hope there is another one this and every year... maybe we could buy our own place and have a continuing reunion for all old DAHS alumni!!! mike

Looking for: Tom Jacubec
Memories: I figure I saw more than 125 Varsity Baseball games during the 6 years I kept score for coach Amen, making it to the North Shore finals our senior year. Acquiring the nickname "Magic Mike" from Coach Campanelli by shooting long jumpers as manager of the Basketball team for 4 years. It's too bad the 3-pointer wasn't in effect back then. I've used the skills learned in those days in local corporate sports skills competitions in recent years.
Other memories include the Technical Electronics (Mr. Fields) class which started with about 15-18 students in 10th grade and ended up with 5 or 6 our senior year (what a drag getting to school at 7:30 a.m. - 45 minutes before everyone else). Math classes with Mr. Weilhoefer and Mr. Murphy, Senior English with Mr. Mezzapesa (spelling?) and Mr. Levy's Social Studies Classes were the most memorable academic memories. Finally, the softball games during the summer right after school let out.
Comments: I live in Macedonia, Ohio with my wife (Lin) and daughters (Kirstin 16 and Courtney 13). Macedonia is located halfway between Cleveland and Akron Ohio.

Jimmy Nolan (now Yoko Ono) - 1972 - mrruba@optionline.net - West Islip - 2000.12.29
Memories: Just laughing all the time.
Comments: I now hate to laugh.

Chris Antonacci - 1997 - chrisantonacci@yahoo.com - State College, Pa. & Levittown - 2000.12.30
Looking for: Old friends who I've missed along the way
Memories: I am primed to graduate from Penn State real soon and I am searching for a job as a sportswriter for a newspaper. If any fellow alums have any contacts, drop me a line. Just kidding. But I still remember my Division days and would love to hear from anyone who knows me. Never forget: hanging out, playing hoops and Jeff's class. Take care.
