The Friday night gathering was artfully cartered mostly by the efforts of Marianne and Leslie with Linda Erdman as chef's assisant.. As your wemaster made his way from the parking lot, he passed many other celebrations. The Long Island Marriott was hosting Indian weddings and fashion shows and the strolling guests decorated the halls with colorful saris, sparkling golden necklaces and bracelets. 

The Saturday dinner had about 6-7 persons per round table in a private area. The salmon was very good. There was no left over cheescake; every bit was quickly swept from each desert plate.  Dory Fliegel, Leslie Schiller Fisher, and Jimmy Friedland make brief remarks: Dory about how special Wheatly was and how those experiences still live in us; Leslie about how she's been assisted by Marianne Lamitola Downey,  Mery Lee Cerillo, Maida Holzman, Donna Kenton and Linda Erdman. Jimmy about how Union Free School District #2 was unique and local in that Wheatley drew students only from North Side and I.U. Willets. Our district was not a "centralized disctrict" drawing students from a larger geographical area.

Sunday's brunch at Marcia's rivaled the table that Menelaus had set for Telemachus: Smoked salmon, breads and bagels, Quiche, fruit salad,  pastries, cakes and apple cider. The Zoom call allowed those gathered to share some looks and words with the teleporting  Gary Sugarman, Suzie Schwartz, Roy Nierenberg, Stephen Shikes, and Fran Levy. 

The above is a quick summary. Attendees comments and more photos are solicited.
