The nickname "Sneaky Pete" wasn't meant to be a derogatory moniker. It was really a badge of honor we bestowed on Mr. Phillips for his masterful ability to catch those of us who tried to sneak a cigarette within that no smoking zone which was defined as "3 telephone poles" away from the school. Mr. Phillips was the consummate gentleman, and I remember him for his soft spoken demeanor, those stiff white collared shirts, and very shiny black shoes.
"Tulip time in Holland is a time for merry fun, market place is crowded and the joy has just begun. We are here to celebrate, and when the day is done, we will not forget the happy hours..."
Yup! I still remember that song, and just sang it for you. Lee Belardino, I'll bet you sang it with me way out there in California. HEY....THIS IS MY WEBSITE, AND I'M EXERCISING MY "WEBMASTER'S RIGHTS" TO POST MULTITUDINOUS (?) EXTRACTS FROM HHS-51, "THE CLASS WITH CLASS!" By the way, the third girl from the left in the pic is my dear wife of 52 years, Judy Britton.
Here's a few of the planners for the class of 1947's 58th reunion which was held at the
Washington Crossing Inn on September 9, 2005. 'tis a puzzlement to me as to why many of the HHS reunions are held out of town. If I had my "druthers," it would be a Hamilton venue.
