We hope you will put your photos in this section. When you want to start a new album, you would have to upload one photo, and in the Caption section, tell me what you want the album to be called and the caption for that picture. I'll make the album and then you can upload all the photos you want into that album. Unfortunately, right now, people can't make a new album without that process being done. After that approval, you can then upload your pics, 1 at a time, and do the captions you want for each one. Any other info, email me at: email@example.com

Ernie Matus Tribute PhotosErnie Matus was a teacher at NEJHS when our class was there. He taught History to eighth graders. Ernie was a strong disciplinarian, and highly respected. He was our head football coach, and our head basketball coach. The football team was 6-0, and the basketball team was 9-3. In the early 1990’s our class members reunited for two annual events, and Ernie attended often. Under the leadership of Francis Macri we have been holding a summer golf event at Bethlehem Golf Club in early August. And, with Joe Kempfer’s lead we gather on December 26 for some socializing locally at various sites. Besides Mr. Matus we have been joined by Fritz Toner (LHS basketball coach), Ted Martz (LHS swimming coach), and Bob Buffman (LHS football coach). Ernie died in 2013. Ted died in 2014. Bob died in 2007. These photos are from various years and locations.

You Guys GolfFor the past 14 years, a bunch of our classmates (even some of the old guys from Becahi) get together once each summer to play a round of "Wilderness Golf". It just so happened that this year's event was held the day after our reunion. It was only fitting that some of the pictures from the golf outing be posted on the class web site.
Guessing who the players are should be fun - there are some fathers and sons too. Enjoy!
