Class of 1961







Welcome to LMHS '61


This new page contains class pictures submitted by our Alumni listed chronologically. New pictures will appear at the top for a short period.
 We encourage you to submit your older class pictures and help identify those on previously submitted pictures. Enjoy!

Another trip down Memory Lane from Charlie Vogt (Facebook: LMHS Classes of the sixties forever young). Covering our books was mandatory. I don't think I ever used this book cover and stuck with the old brown paper bag covers made at home. But the picture does bring back memories. 8/20/14

I was delighted to see this on Facebook (LMHS classes of the 60's forever young). It came from Charlie Vogt and he graciously is allowing me to share. This was the last menu we ever looked at since it was June 1961. I'm always astounded at the things people save. I was never one to save this kind of item, but fifty three years later, I have to say I'm so glad other people did!

 Jonas Salk Homeroom 9th grade
 Top row left to right: Pat Clancy, Ann Marie Brown, Sally Pittman, Liz Sucher, Diane Dobbin, unknown female
 Middle row: Barbara Bockmann, Marilyn Blumenthall, Dorothy Willner
 Front row: Toni Salometo, unknown male, Jerry Murphy (in vest), Evelyn Aloisio
 Submitted by Barbara Bockmann

The unknown male on the Salk picture next to Toni looks like
GARY STEIN. He took the pictures for our Year Book.. Ask Toni if I'm right !!
If so, then I know that just my current memory is going and I fit the senior moment category because the far memory stays longer...
Stu Smith

Tell Stu not to worry, he's right, it is Gary Stein--as for senior moments, I didn't recognize Liz Sucher, who lived down the block from me and used to walk with to school. I'll trump you one senior moment Stu!!!

Oh my. Looked older then than now.
Sally Pittman-Smith

Barbara, who contributed the picture, found the list of who's who in that pic. The unidentified male is Steve Bacharach, who moved before we graduated. (Sorry Stu and Toni- not Gary Stein) That is not Diane Dobbin in the back row, but Kathy Pia. So much for the memories of those of us who collectively worked on identifying everyone.
