The following letter was recieved from Beth Wolff (Wolfer), Class of 1962.
I am Beth Wolff (Wolfer) and my family moved back to Rockaway when I was in the 7th grade. I was born in Arverne and we moved out of state after I finished the first grade in Bayswater. I do not know the name of the grade school but I think there was only one then.
I have been enjoying reading messages and stories posted by my classmates and I just found I had the attached photos from summers on the beach at 119th Street (I think that is where we hung out) with classmates from 1961 and 1962. I can identify most of the people in these photos. The first photo I know had Carol Berkson (62) on the top and I think the boys on the bottom were summer kids but I could be wrong. Maybe someone will recognize themselves. The second photo from the left is Winnie Roberts (61), next a girl I do not remember her name, Beth Wolfer (62) and Rita Goldstein (61). The third photo from the bottom row left: Patti Fine, Diane Braverman, top row left: Barbara Scarlatta, Carol Berkson and Beth Wolfer all class 1962.
I currently live in Lake Oswego Oregon with my wonderful husband Richie Wolff (I know, you all thought I just shortened my last name from Wolfer to Wolff). I have a 29 year old daughter who lives in London England and a 26 year old son who lives in Denver. I also have a step-son who lives in NYC and a step daughter in Oregon and two step-grandchildren. Richie and I retired last year and we have been enjoying traveling the world and enjoying our retirement.
I have tried to get more information regarding the reunion cruise next year but I have not received any answers from my two emails asking for more information. Does anyone know where this cruise is origination from and where it is going?
I would enjoy hearing from anyone who remembers me and sharing stores from our youth. I was friend with Joyce Krain (who I found out this summer had died four years ago), Carol Kramer (who I lost contact with in California in the early 70's), Rita Goldstein (61), Harriet Aronson, Carol Berkson, and others who's names are escaping me now. I am computer literate, I have a scanner, digital camera and a computer system I built. I also have the Dolphin from 1961 and 1962 and the 1959 Cardoza JH year book if someone needs a copy of a photo.
Thanks so much for the memories............
