The Class of 1959 at Jamesville-DeWitt HS in DeWitt, NY, celebrated its 50th anniversary with a reunion at the Brae Loch Inn, in Cazenovia, NY, on October 9th, and 10th, 2009.  Thanks go to John Ganotis, Dr. Don Boyd, and Dave Kuhnert, who also contributed to this photo collection.

At left, the Brae Loch Inn, setting for the reunion, next, a dedication ceremony was held on campus on 10-10-2009, in recognition of the Class of 1959 for its donation of trees, and a concrete picnic table, which is shown at the far right
At left, Dick Affolter, myself, (Ed Hutchison), and Joanne Boyd.  Right, a plaque that my classmates were kind enough to present to the school, and to me, in appreciation of my efforts to "preserve the history of the people who lived in and near the school district in the 1950s." While it is unmerited, it is certainly not unappreciated.
