Social Headlines of
Our Completed Towers
On September 7, 1954, with our foundation set at Clarkstown Jr-Sr High School, we set out to strengthen our
towers with a well-rounded social, as well as, educational calendar. The Freshman officers were Edwin Hoffman,
President; Judy Wyman, Vice-President; Toni Guelich, Secretary; and Terrance Coyle, Treasurer. Our social
headline for the first year, '54-'55, was the Freshman Fever Dance.
The second year, '55-'56, was a little easier, as we were more acquainted with the terrain. With our architects
re-elected for a second term, with the addition of Judy Roscoe as Secretary, we realized that we were able to
build together as a team. The leading social activity of the Sophomore year proved to be the Sophomore Swing.
In the year '56-'57, now well on the way to success in completing the growing towers, our excellent class
officers were re-elected for a third term, with Maryann Snyder as our new Vice-President. The Autumn Leaves
Dance started off our advancing social year; cake sales, and the Green Door Dance, with the spectacular Zambesi
Trio followed. On May 24, we sponsored our most unforgettable Junior Prom, that was held at the Empire Country
Club. The buffet supper and dancing to the music of Dr. Carney's band made the evening memorable. our King and
Queen, Daniel Bittman and Barbara Strandberg, reigned supreme over our "Moonglo Kingdom."
The fourth and final year, and the completion of our towers here at Clarkstown, began on September 4, 1957. Our
President Edwin Hoffman and Treasurer, Terrance Coyle, were re-elected to serve us for our final term, with the
additions of Diane Buglione as Vice-President, and Judy Wyman as Secretary. The Magazine Campaign, under the
direction of our Co-Chairmen, Penny Vaughan and Sandra Dudan, and the cooperation of the entire school, proved
a colossal success - our biggest business venture of the school year. Our production, the Senior Play "Kiss
and Tell" was a blazing and hilarious success, under the excellent direction of Mr. Naismith and Mr. Travaglini.
These were the trimmings on our towers.
The class trip to the United Nations was educational as well as pleasurable.
Our Senior Dances, Snowflake Fantasy and the Bunny Hop, were gaiety to the utmost.
Cake sales, held in the cafeteria, brought many added dollars to our treasury.
Graduation, our final, yet serious, step in our calendar has arrived to complete our towers, socially and
Through our experiences here at Clarkstown, we have gained a better understanding of life, responsibility, and
the future, helping us to walk a smoother road, and making our next challenge less strenuous.
