Graduates From Rockaway In 1951

Aginsky, Helene (Zucker) - - Boynton Beach,  FL
All these years and I still miss the Chinese restaurant "upstairs" Central avenue and the best sundaes at Pickwicks.

Bergazyn, Robert (Bob) - - Palm Desert, CA - Updated March, 2015
Carroll and I have moved to Brentwood, California, on the west side of Los Angeles. We are living in a charming apartment in a Spanish-colonial style building that's typical of our neighborhood, an area where we can walk almost everywhere. Yes, in Los Angeles! We are looking forward to this next phase in our lives, without winter and minutes from the ocean and our one-year old grandson. The past 14 years in Des Moines, Iowa have been a wonderful time for us. The quality of life (and the Iowa sweet corn and pork tenderloin sandwiches) along with the lovely Iowa countryside are unforgettable. But what we'll always treasure are the lasting friendships we made there.

Laurelton also known as "God's Little Acre" or was that the Drive -In in Valley Stream? Wonderful memories growing up there. Spent most of my adult life living in Manhattan, then 15 years in Florida and now Arizona, ARIZONA??? Yes, I find it hard to believe too. The filler stuff for all those years was calm to extreme, delicious and's been a real good ride. Drop a note. I don't read or answer quickly.

I am an avid fisherman, and fish occasionally with my 1st cousin Sam Reiver, who graduated FRHS in the early 60s.  I graduated in the winter of 1951 which was the last mid-year graduation at FRHS My wife Paula taught at F.R. for many years. Her maiden name was Paula Berk. She was a Math teacher and Guidance Counselor. It was good to see many of the old names from the good old days when Rockaway was the best spot on earth.

This is so much fun! FRHS was very special. People from other schools do not understand the closeness that we feel as being former students there. The reunions that I've been to have been terrific. I'm hoping to go to more of them to see you all.

I am very happy to find this web site and would love to get in contact with some of the people I graduated with. I wish I could have attended some of the reunions, but I've been out of NY for many years. I travel to the New York and New Jersey area frequently to visit family so if you could please contact me when the next reunion is scheduled I would very much like to attend. Thank You.

Zipkin, Norman  - Decatur, GA
I have been in Atlanta for over 35 years , retired from at&t, have 2 children and 4 grand children. We missed the beach, so we spend a lot of time at Hilton Head Island, SC. It's not Rockaway but it's still the beach and the same ocean.
