My grandparents Evelyn and George West lived on Bonaview Avenue in Southport. That spinny thing in the haunted house at Eldridge Park scared me so much as a youngster. I miss Pudgie's "Good Time" Pizza. A memory I have is waiting for our pizza with my mom in Corning on Market Street, with "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" playing on the jukebox.

Biltmore EstateI've toured many a web page but never seen such a great collection! Well done and congrats to all who worked and are still working to have such a living tribute to the little town I once called home.
I went to school at Coldbrook elementary and then on to Broadway Junior High. We moved then to FL in 1963 but would have grad at Southside in 1967 if we had not moved.
Eldrige Park photos, the pool, Harris Hill and Watkins Glenn! What a real treat to see all these places again. Thanks so much to all!

Love looking through here. My mom and my brother still live in the Elmira/Horseheads area. I come back 1 or 2 times a year. Saw Route 17 being changed...it should look nice when finished. Sad to see and hear the economy struggles there.
Would love to see pictures of the mall before the big addition in the 80's. Remember the metal platform in bewtween Izards and Penney's? Loved playing on that!!! And the grocery store in it that began w/ an "L"? Loblaw's?? Or pictures before the Walmart plaza went it in Big Flats? I remember a swamp area there!!
Would love to hear from former classmates!!

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!Hope everyone had a peaceful and joyful Christmas, and best wishes for health, happiness, and peace in 2006.
My husband and I were reminiscing the other day about Christmases from the days of our childhood, and that made me think of a lot of people I haven't thought about for a long time.
I was wondering if anyone knows how the following people are or where they live now: Susie Jacobson, Nate Kornfeld, Salling Wellinghoff, Ricky Carr, Rick Gerard,Mary Machenic, Paula Hickey& Jackie Henbest?
With the exception of Paula Hickey, all the rest went to Hoffman School with me, we were in the same graduating class, Paula was a little older than we. I remember sitting around the Christmas tree in the front corridor of the school, across from the principal's office, and singing Christmas carols and Channukah songs. Those Hoffman School days were a very special time of my childhood, and I was wondering what became of all those people.
Another person I often think about fondly is Mrs. Vadala. She used to live on Winsor Ave. many years ago. She and my mom were very good friends. I remember Mrs. Vadala taking me to get my very first library card when I was a little girl, my mom didn't know much English in those days, so Mrs. Vadala took me to get my card when she took her children to the library.
From my high school days I wonder where Aileen Ayers, Judy Whitson, Karen Bebe, and Grace Piatkowski are. I hope that all these people are well. If any of you visit this site it would be really nice to hear from you.
Lastly, but not least, I often wonder where the following teachers are and how they are doing; Mrs. Todd, Mr. Wilson, and Mr. Prettyman. They were three of my very favorite teachers, and I've often wanted to tell them that I also became a teacher, and that they were instrumental in influencing me to follow the same path of education.
Two other teachers that I've often wondered about are Mr. Berguson, who was very good in the field of science, but who had a challenging time controlling us, we were his first class that he ever taught. I've often wondered if he went on to be a scientist, or if he remained a teacher, and then there was his colleague, Mr. Dietrich, that every little sophomore girl had a crush on in those long ago days.
Anyway, like I said my husband and I were discussing our childhood and Christmases of the past and a lot of people came into mind.
We were also thinking of Christmases to come. We have three grown children, two sons, who are in their mid-twenties, and one daughter, who is eighteen. Our oldest son is getting married in the summer of 2006, and we were thinking that next year we will be celebrating with him and his new wife in their own place.
Well, enough of that, guess holiday time brings out all kind of reflection. Hope everyone is well. "Bye for now." Irene

My husband's father grew up in Elmira in the 20's and up to WW2 we believe, when he was drafted. Looking for any family he may have had that might still be around. Possibly even family from his first marriage before the war. His name was Silas MacMillan.

Hello everyone! It's great having this website to visit every once and awhile.It's like visiting home without having to travel, and it definitely brings back soooo many, many memories.
I also attended Booth Jr. High, and prior to that I went to Hoffman School. (Graduated from EC in 1975)Anyway, it would be really nice to hear from some of the former classmates and friends. I would welcome an e-mail message to catch up on news, where people are and how they are doing.
I also came across an old newspaper article recently about the origins of the M&M Hot Dog Stand. Next time I write I will update you on that. Last time I visited this website some conversation was going on as to who the original owners were. At that time I had mentioned that the Patros family, my family, were one time owners. Now I dont have much time to expound, but on my next visit I will share this information with you.
Anyway, before closing I want to wish everyone happy holidays, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and to all the Jewish friends a Happy Channuka! Well, got to go. "Bye for now." Irene
