SCSAA ANNOUNCES CHALLENGE — GRANT FOR SIDNEY CENTER PLAYGROUND
Sidney Center Girl Raises Funds for Park
The Board of Directors of the Sidney Central School Alumni Association (SCSAA) has made a $2,500 matching challenge grant to the Sidney Center Improvement Group (SCIG) for the restoration of the Sidney Center Park and Playground. Sidney Center has seen an influx of young families who have expressed a need for a safe, open outdoor space for their children to play. SCIG identified the need to help the community rebuild the playground after a flood mitigation project left the park cut in half, as well as the baseball field removed and much of the equipment in need of repair or replacement. The project will take place in three phases and will consist of restoring what is currently at the park, installing new park/playground equipment and allowing safe access to the park with a footbridge over the stream. SCSAA has committed to match each donation dollar for dollar up to $2,500. Your contribution will help advance this project forward and is greatly appreciated. Below is an aerial photo of the park in its current state.
Isabella Conroy When then 6 year-old Isabella Conroy of Sidney Center was asked by her parents what she wanted for her 7th birthday party she replied confidently, “ya know, we really need to get the park looking better, so I think I want people to give money to it instead of getting presents.” While impressed that their daughter would consider being so selfless and thoughtful, they assumed this was a fleeting idea.

Isabella Conroy Begins Fundraiser... Con’t from page 1 But when it came time to send out invitations, Bella insisted that’s what she wanted.
community, SCSAA and of course, 7 year-old Isabella Conroy.
The Sidney Center playground has seen better days. The days when peewee and little league teams from around the area came to Sidney Center to play ball. The days when kids went there after school, weekends and throughout the summer to shoot hoops, play on the equipment or climb the gravel bank mountain. The days when it was an adventure to play in Willow Brook catching cray fish and searching for lost treasure. Things have definitely changed since those days. A few years ago, the park underwent a flood mitigation project which required the relocation of a stream directly through the park. Since completion of this project, nothing has been done to the park in terms of improvement or replacement of equipment, resulting in the community not using the park.
If you'd like to learn more about the Sidney Center Improvement Group and to follow the progress of the restoration project of the Park & Playground, please visit their Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/SCIGNY
The Sidney Center Improvement Group (SCIG) is the organization responsible for spearheading the park restoration project. SCIG is a registered non-profit organization formed over 10 years ago to do exactly what the name implies. SCIG is made up entirely of volunteers from the community and focuses on three main areas: community events, beautification projects and clean water. SCSAA was approached by SCIG asking for help in the fundraising effort. SCSAA has committed up to $2,500 in matching funds raised through the SCSAA. SCSAA is asking any alumnus wishing to contribute to this project to please review the information on the front page of this newsletter. SCSAA members and its board recognizes the significance of Sidney Center and how central a playground is to a child's youth. SCIG listened to the requests from its members and those in the community who expressed a need for their kids to have a safe, open space to play and be occupied outdoors instead of stuck in front of a device or out getting into trouble. SCIG looked at the state of the playground and decided this would be the next initiative starting with the annual “Lucky Day Auction Fundraiser” held in July. Thanks to the support of local businesses, artists and individuals, SCIG was able to raise over $2,000 towards the renovation of the park. This is where Isabella Conroy comes back into play. Jennifer ‘Sellitti’ Conroy (SHS Class of '98), Isabella's mother, and a member of SCIG, was involved in the planning of the auction fundraiser, which in turn involved her daughter, who is quite perceptive at such a young age. She recognized what the fundraiser was for and why it was needed so she wanted to contribute in her own way. Isabella sent out invitations to her birthday party and included a note that in lieu of presents, Bella requested monetary donations to SCIG for improvement of the Sidney Center Park. Since her party her story was picked up by the Tri-Town News and Oneonta Daily Star which has given her undertaking more attention and helped move the project forward. To date Bella has raised close to $750, which has been passed on to SCIG for the project. SCIG will also be applying for community improvement grants and will be seeking support from the Town of Sidney and Delaware County. The project will consist of restoring what is currently at the park, installing new equipment and improving access to the park with a footbridge over the stream. SCSAA is proud to support this community project and SCIG couldn’t be more grateful for the support already received from the

SCSAA Board of Directors Annual Election Ray Taylor, Class of 1955
Paul Beames, Class of 1963
I would like to be considered for re-election as a director of the Sidney Central School Alumni Association. I graduated from Sidney Central School in ‘55; married to Elma ‘Daniels’ Taylor class of ‘56. We have 2 grown children who are also graduates of Sidney High. Ray Jr. - class of ‘74 - lives in Cincinnati OH and has 2 children. Randy - class of ‘77’ - lives in Rochester NY and has 2 children.
I have served with the SCSAA Wall of Fame (WOF) Committee for 7 years, and I’m in my first year as a Director with the alumni association board of directors. My position with the board is as the Community Relations Director. I find it personally very rewarding to serve with both the board and the WOF committee. The alumni association is a very positive organization providing noteworthy services and resources to alumni members, the school and the community.
I would like to renew my commitment to this organization by asking for your vote for my reelection to the Board of Directors. As a Director and Web Master, I would like to continue to do my part to see this association continue to grow.
Anne M. Mott, Class of 1983 Currently, Anne Mott is serving as the assistant treasurer and is part of the Scholarship committee, as well as helping with the Alumni weekend activities. For many years she has participated in a number of organizations in the Sidney and Bainbridge area; Sidney Dollars for Scholars, Isaac Nieves Boy Scout Scholarship Committee, Ed Wessels Canoe Regatta, General Clinton Canoe Regatta, Boy Scouts of America, and Sidney Golf and Country Club. In her spare time, she enjoys playing games, reading, bowling, golfing, motorcycle riding, and spending time with family and friends. Having served on the Alumni Association for many years, she looks forward to being a part of this ever changing group of people who have the paramount interest of the Sidney Alumni at heart with all they accomplish.
The SCSAA Board of Directors Proudly Serves Alumni, School, and Community
Working with a board of unselfish volunteers is a true honor. I am pleased to offer my continued services unless otherwise requested.
Marty Reed, Class of 1965 I am proud to have served over the past year on the SCSAA Board of Directors after an absence of a few years due to relocation. I have recently moved back to the area and am eager to continue serving for an upcoming 3-year term. Over the past year, I actively supported the events that took place during the reunion weekend of 2017. I was able to see first hand again that the vitality of the weekend has continued to grow. I am a 1965 graduate of Sidney High School and after graduating from Utica College, I worked for the General Electric Company for over 41 years. Previously, I had been a Director serving from the very beginning of the association and am so proud to have been a part in helping to promote the vision of building a strong interface between alumni and community. This association has and continues to be an active and purposeful organization in providing vitality to the community and in serving all alumni. The annual all-alumni weekend each summer continues to be a major positive event for our alumni and community. We are experiencing a renewed positive relationship between the association and the school. It is a privilege to serve the association, and thank you for your consideration.
SCSAA Board of Directors Annual Election
Dennis Porter, Class of 1966
Bryan Innes, Class of 2001
As I have said in the past, I can’t believe that I have been a volunteer with the Sidney Alumni Association for the past 19 years, 16 of which I served as a member of the board. I am still as excited about our organization now as I was when we were a fledgling organization. Our alumni weekend has grown into a major event in Sidney and our association is well known and respected in the Sidney community.
I am writing to express my interest to continue serving as a Board Member of the Sidney Central School Alumni Association. It has been my pleasure to serve these past 7 years and I look forward to the continued prosperity of the association. In recent years I played a vital role in creating “Career Day” which just celebrated its 3rd occurrence on Nov. 17.
I am very proud to be a part of the Sidney Alumni Association and would like to renew my board seat for one more term. I continue to serve as co-chair of the Wall of Fame Committee and New Ideas Committee. I pledge to help provide new ideas and direction to the board and help further the growth of our association. I continue to be active in the Sidney community.
2017 marked the first year since 2010 that I did not run the All Alumni Golf Tournament as I tried my hand at directing the entire weekend. It was a lot of fun and I hope to continue directing it in 2018. I recently moved back to the Sidney area and it has increased my drive to make the Association be even better. It would be an honor to continue on for these next 3 years.
I am completing my 34th year with the United Way of Sidney and continue my long-term position as executive director. I am also active with the Leatherstocking Council of the Boy Scouts as a board member, and currently Vice President of the Prospect Hill Cemetery Association. This year I celebrated my 40th wedding anniversary with my lovely wife, Margaret. I am extremely happy to be a first-time grandfather and just celebrated Casey’s first birthday. I look forward to serving the Sidney Alumni Association as a board member and would consider it an honor and a privilege to continue to serve the Association and pursue its vision.
Teri D’Imperio Schunk, Class of 1984 I am seeking re-election as a board member and Vice President of Strategic Planning for the Sidney Alumni Association for the next term. Having spent my entire life in Sidney and coming from the largest family to ever graduate from the Sidney School District I would like to continue my hard work and dedication with this solid organization. The commitment, growth and compassion this organization has shown each and every year are wonderful. It is my goal to continue bringing new ideas, partnering with our local community and to engage our young alumni into the value this wonderful organization brings to our community.

Sports Hall of Fame SIDNEY ALUMNI SPORTS HALL OF FAME CELEBRATES 15TH ANNUAL INDUCTION The committee organizing the 15th annual Sidney Alumni Sports Hall of Fame Induction Weekend Sept. 22-23 was hoping for ideal conditions. And that’s exactly what they got! The first sunny days of autumn, coupled with a state-ranked Sidney Varsity football team painted an incredible portrait of what has become a popular scene at Sidney Alumni Field on the Friday of Induction Weekend. Members of the Class of 2017 and Legacy team members gathered there for their annual halftime salute on the all-weather track. Following the ceremony, and with a huge Sidney victory over Harpursville/Afton assured, alumni, family and friends moved to the VFW for the post-game social, sponsored this year by ACCO Brands. As has become an eye-pleasing extra at the Elks, the decorations orchestrated by Amber Wilson Fogarty ‘93 set the tone for the Saturday evening festivities. It was clear to the 140 in attendance they “felt that Warrior connection” in a room full of maroon and white. Plus, the impressive displays of inductee memorabilia helped complete the nostalgic touch. Following an invocation blessing by Andy Doyle ‘96, everyone settled into a fine roast beef and turkey buffet put on by the Elks. Andy also delivered a fitting benediction to end the evening. The return of the charity auction was welcomed by those bidders anxious to get in on some nice collectibles. This year, Sidney memorabilia – notably books by Wall of Fame alumni Chuck D’Imperio ‘67 were added to the sports theme. Almost all items were donated by alumni. The big-ticket item was a week-long stay in a Myrtle Beach condo donated by Scott Dewey ‘81. Starting off the celebration was the 11th Annual Legacy Award recognition. Unique this year was
Representing undefeated football teams of 1934, 1956 and 1960 -- Jerry Curtis ‘59, Allen Punky George ‘58, Mike Brazee ‘76 representing SCS, Greg Davie ‘76 Chair SHOF Committee, Del Hodges ‘61 and Jon Jay DeTemple ‘61. that three undefeated football teams were honored together. The teams of 1934, 1956 and 1960 combined to win 21 games under two hall of fame coaches, John Pendlebury ‘30 and Fran Redmond. A good representation of the latter two squads was present to reminisce and accept custom medallions as Legacy honorees. Previous inductees Jerry Curtis ‘59 and Allen ‘Punky’ George ‘58, spoke on behalf of the 1956 team, followed by Jon Jay DeTemple ‘61 and Del Hodges ‘61 for the 1960 team. All four are Sports Hall of Fame inductees. Of special note, a member of the Bishop family was part of all THREE teams! Charles ‘35, John ‘59, and Charlie ‘61. The two brothers were in attendance! The auction raised $1,105 toward the ongoing project at Sidney High School, which is a touch screen interactive alumni guide that can assist current students in numerous ways. It will include a complete roster of Sports Hall of Fame inductees and Legacy teams.
The 2017 Legacy Teams
1956-57--(from L to R) Dick McCauley ‘57, Bob
Krankewicz ‘57, Russ Olsen ‘58, Lou Graney ‘57, Doug Fessenden, Jerry Curtis ‘59 and Allen ‘Punky’George ‘58.
1960-61-- (from L to R) Jon Jay DeTemple ‘61, Liz Wagner ‘83 for her father John Wagner ‘63, Donna Drotar St. John ‘61 for Larry St. John ‘61, Allen ‘Punky’ George ‘58, Charlie Bishop ‘61, Phil Anderson ‘63, Dick Elliott ‘62, Earl Hendee ‘62, Vince Warner ‘61, Del Hodges ‘61 and Doug Fessenden.
The Inductees in the Class of 2017
Each of the four inductees for the Class of 2017 had a special person who introduced them to the podium. For lead-off man Dennis Voltz '79, it was SHOF member Tony Ferrara '88. In 2015, Dennis had introduced Tony for his induction. This time the roles among the New York State wrestling champions were reversed. Both men continued to give high praise for their late HOF coach, Tom Robertson.
2017 Inductees – (L-R) Chris Graney ‘85, JoAnn
Morris Stevens ‘80, Dennis Voltz ‘79, and Carl Roof ‘81

Chris Graney, Class of 1985 Keeping with the family approach, Chris Graney ‘85 asked his father Lou ‘57 to introduce him. Lou got a rare honor to be among the Legacy athletes for the 1956 football team and also be part of an induction. Chris represented Sidney, New York, and the United States in various discus events while a student-athlete and thanked the coaches and Sidney community for their support.
Chris’ Parents -- His father, Lou, class of ‘57 and his mother Pat ‘Lawrence’ Graney, class of ‘59.
Chris’ Family -- Lou Graney ‘57, Rick Graney ‘79, and Aunt Janie ‘Graney’ Andrews ‘70.
JoAnn ‘Morris’ Stevens, Class of 1980 Next was JoAnn Morris Stevens ‘80, who was introduced by her sister Catherine Morris Suriano ‘82. JoAnn’s running accomplishments, which included a league record that still stands almost 40 years later (400-meter run), have lasted a lifetime. And sibling testimonials are always an emotional plus. A connection with track legend Mary Decker was fitting. JoAnn also loved being a varsity cheerleader for two years.
JoAnn receives her award from her sister Catherine ‘Morris’ Suriano ‘82, who gave the presentation. JoAnn’s family (right)--seated, in the front row with JoAnn is her husband Greg Stevens, and parents Vic Tartaglia and her mother Pat ‘Wagner’ Tartaglia ‘61; (Standing, L to R) are her sons Justin and Jordan, Nic Tartaglia ‘87 and her sister Catherine.
Carl Roof, Class of 1981
1979 NYS basketball championship team and holds several career baseball records. He called upon former coach Bill Munro to introduce him. Bill described Carl as a person whose characteristics were equally as impressive as his athletic ability was. Carl thanked family and his upbringing in Sidney Center as being tremendous influences.
Former Coach Bill Munro presented the 2017 Sports Hall of Fame award to Carl.
The SHOF committee thanks Ray Taylor ‘55 for his 15 years of taking photos for the Alumni website as well as WOF and HOF inductee Mike Gallup ‘63 for his annual donation for the Legacy keepsake awards. This year, the team members received an engraved medallion housed in a case which is ideal for display. Finally, the SHOF committee was proud to add a custom banner and podium (below) for their events. Made locally, both items greatly enhanced the aesthetic beauty fitting for such a celebration.
Carl and his wife, Suzette Sheils, ‘81.
We welcome, and give a special ‘thank you’ to our videographer from Sidney High School, Stoney Rowe.

A few of the sites they visited include the Kloster Andecks Monastery, est. in 1455 (a painted image shown on the mug of Monks beer). The monastery is a Catholic Kapuziner sect located at the last southbound S. Bahn public rail system outside of Munich (top center). From the train station they walked to the monastery. The sanctuary (top right

Dante’s tomb (bottom center) is a monument built for a much revered poet who was buried in Ravenna, Italy, in 1321. His bones were moved several times by the residents, including WWII, to keep them safe. Bob and Gabriele also enjoyed Pear Schnapps that had been aged in a barrel (lower right).
