REUNION CENTRAL

NEW MEMBER REGISTRATION

WELCOME TO NATIONAL PUBLIC ZAZZOOM

NPZ is a joint labor of love on the part of many individuals working together to unite the two classes that graduated from Brooklyn's Franklin K. Lane High School in 1953.  Our website has been applauded by alumni and other visitors from around the world.  You are more than welcome and encouraged to visit our site often to enjoy the nostalgia as NPZ takes you back to those good old days of 1953.

Virginia Martin The one who got this whole thing going.  She found my name on classmates.com and sent me the following email.  

To: "WARREN DICKMAN" 
From: "VIRGINIA MARTIN" 
Date: Fri, 23 Jun 2000 13:25:35 -0700 (PDT)

Hi, I figured I would send you a note, not that you would remember me at all, but I do recognize you and we all have just about gone a lifetime, with some interesting stories I am sure. So, if you would like to write to me I would be happy to answer. I will give you a little history, I am married and have 4 children. 2 boys and 2 girls. I was lucky. -Ginny

She claims her daughter, Nancy Palmer, was the instigator:
You know when you say we started this idea, reunion, actually my
daughter really started it....she put my name in classmates.com, and I didn't even know what she was really doing or what could have come
about.  Funny how things work out, eh?  Guess it was meant to
be.   -Ginny

Since then, Ginny and I have been emailing back and forth several times a week.  We started comparing notes and sharing our contacts; our list started growing and we were on our way.  It was Ginny who suggested that we make this a joint reunion with both classes and was instrumental in getting me the pictures from the June year book.

One of the first email addresses I passed on to her was that of...

Madeline Casillo  8/16/01

We all owe Madeline Casillo Mando a debt of gratitude for supplying the pages from the June year book.  She copied the pages and mailed them to Ginny, who took them (through the snow) to her daughter, Nancy Palmer, who scanned them and emailed them in for publication here.

From those small beginning we were able to progress to where we are today though the untiring efforts of certain individuals who came on board with a desire to help out, including, but not limited to:

Maureen Lewis Alhouse 

Maureen has made what some would consider the supreme sacrifice for the good of the group.  On 3/08/01 she parted with her June yearbook, mailing it off to me for use on the web.  As of 12/22/01 I still have it and am still scanning from it and working with it.  Greater love has no Lane grad than to part with her yearbook at a time like this.

  Besides that she has been a priceless asset to the reunion effort by taking on the responsibility of heading up the snail mail committee.   Her overall attitude of cooperation and support are appreciated by all in the association.     BACK TO LIST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marie Passantino

Besides being a major part of the social committee and also the snail mail committee, Marie is the sort of person whose caring nature is evident in all she does.  When we learned that one of our classmates was somewhere in a hospital close to death, Marie not only went in search of her and found her but was a source of joy to her right up until her death.  She then followed up by representing our graduating class at the funeral.  This kind is hard to come by.   BACK TO LIST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Johanna Giannone

Here again is a loving, caring, individual who  took it upon herself to be instrumental in arranging mini-reunions as a way for members to get to know one another all over again.    BACK TO LIST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lew and Susan Wexler

Since coming on board on 3/06/01 Lew and Susan have been no further than a phone call away for any who need their help.  They are  behind the association 110% as seen by their continual efforts at recruiting new members,  their many contributions to the web, and  the moral support and encouragement that can be invaluable when it comes at just the right time.   BACK TO LIST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Barbara Rossman

As one of our charter members, being a part of the association before there was an association, Barbara has been ready willing and able to take any assignment offered her.  She's an integral part of  the association and would be tough to replace.   BACK TO LIST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Louis Robinson

In the few short months since Louie joined us he has been instrumental in recruiting dozens of new members.  His willing attitude and social connections are priceless in an operation such as this.   BACK TO LIST
