Marcellus Memories : 50 years ago - 1961

—  Three bus loads of Farm Bureau members and friends made a trip to Washington, D.C., visiting large dairy farms on the way. They met Congressman Riehlman, visited the White House, the Gettysburg Battlefield, Mt. Vernon, Barbara Fritchie’s home, the Bureau of Engraving, the Washington and Lincoln Memorials, Arlington Cemetery and saw the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Those attending from Marcellus were: Paul and Mildred Abbott, George and Mabel Hollenbeck, Harry and Leora Eibert and Mr. and Mrs. William Stevens.

 Do not belittle yourself or others for mistakes made. There is no gain to be made dwelling on an error.  Choose to cast off anger and disappointment.

 A half century ago, a merry group of girls attended the old Marcellus High School. Sixteen of these classmates gathered at Marcellus Park for their annual reunion.  It speaks well for the teachers of their youth that over one half of those attending were teachers themselve — a few still in active service. There was some reminiscing and many queries as to “what” became of “whom” as the ladies enjoyed a luncheon and then remained on into the late afternoon to enjoy each other’s company. If there are other old classmates reading this who were not notified of the reunion and would enjoy meeting with us, just contact Mrs. William Spaulding of Marcellus.  She is responsible for the enjoyable occasions. Attending this year from Marcellus were: Miss Lucy Case, Miss Grace Vanbenthusen, Mrs. Florence Bowden Robinson, Mrs. Carrie Matteson Corp and Mrs. Emma Weeks Spaulding. Mrs. Edna Case Woodford and Mrs. Flora Weeks Smith came from Skaneateles.  From Syracuse were Miss Charlotte Burleton, Mrs. Anna Weeks Sherwood and Mrs. Merle Waite Fuller.  Also attending from out of town were: Miss Christina Malcolm, Mrs. Ethel Harrison Black, Mrs. Helen Parsons Mack, Mrs. Blanche Minir Wyckoff, Mrs. Phyllis P. Higgins and Mrs. Margie Sweet Jewell.
