Wishing everyone a happy and healthy July 4th, I’m visiting my favorite— Good Harbor Beach

Gloucester.  I recall when in Warren Jr High on a field trip

to Halibut Point Rockport with Paul Grillo and the Gang

we defied the rules, again, and went swimming at 

Front Beach Rockport/—/ was difficult to hide when

a bunch of us returned to the bus all wet!

All the Best Fun.

Mrs Jones theatre arts teacher.  😎

Hi Marc. Looks like we switched locations for the 4rth. Of course I would have loved to see you to say hello.I live a 15 minute walk from Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester but I am visiting my daughter out here in Baltimore. We'll have to try again sometime.
My best,

Hi Marc and Dana,

I would love to see the YouTube of Mr. Harriss’s English Class! I was there too! Remember my treatise on The Sound and the Fury?


As for Antigone with Michael Blau......could that have been me - Cathy Burroughs?


Great to connect! Strangely Jerry Prell was in a recent dream of mine! Coincidence? I think not!


Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I am in studio City, LA with my 91 year old mother Jo Farkas who became an actress at 65 and at 91, despite two cracked ribs is still going strong! Look for her recently on Jimmy Kimmel live for the Generational Gap Games....check out her impressive IMBD and my article about her illustrious and inspiring career in Backstage Magazine.


As for me you can find me on the last ten minutes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10, Episode 18 or at

Headed to Greece,Spain and Portugal Aug through early Oct.....after that come visit me in Atlanta, GA where I live in a funky artist’s home on a lake - there’s even a canoe. Google Artist’s Lakefront House in Clarkston, GA on Home Away, Air b n b and GuestToGuest international home exchange.

Hugs to all,

Cathy B. 404-543-1080

Hi Marc, Dana, Cathy, Mark and Everybody,

I also love Good Harbor Beach and live about 40 minutes from there. Maybe we should plan a mini reunion there? 

I was in Mr. Harris's English class as well!

Best Wishes,


Ps. My new passion is my YouTube channel Spiritually Speaking. Been spending countless hours making videos of different faith communities to dispel myths and stereotypes about each other. Episodes on Islam, Hinduism, Native Americans, Mormons, Evangelical Christians, etc.

Hi Everyone,  I love Susan Abramson's suggestion about a mini reunion in Gloucester.  I grew up just about every summer of my life in Gloucester/Rockport.  I still frequent the area to photograph.  My work is right on Revere Beach so I am not far away either from Gloucester.  Rocky Neck is also so beautiful!  Can we figure out a convenient time that we can all get together this summer?  email is:   nice to hear from everyone!

Deb - You cleared up my “young” memory, thanks so much.

Susan, Donna— What a pleasure hearing from y’all.

As well I grew up summers in Gloucester and my

Rocks and went out on in Harbor aboard Schooner Adventure

to watch the fireworks.  

Yes I Love the idea about getting together this summer 

in Gloucester — I am staying in a house on the water

for August 17 - Labor Day in Gloucester Rocky Neck.

Hello Everyone!  Just got back from Israel, where I got to visit with Mike Madeson.  Have not seen him since NHS.  A great visit with lots of catching up.  Marc, thanks for shout out re: Sr Class Play.  A wonderful memory, indeed. Cathy - very funny I appeared in your dream.... I was living in CT for 19 years, now back to SoCal, since 2009.  Doing some acting here and there, but mostly teaching theatre, acting, directing a number of area colleges.  If interested, check out my IMDB page and youtube videos Hope everyone is healthy and happy -- looking forward to our 50th Reunion.  All good things!  Fondly - J

Cathy H. Burroughs



Welcome back, Jerry,

Hope you had an amazing time in Israel. The thing that was so odd about you popping up in my dream as someone who had made it in Hollywood is that I didn't recognize you. Not til your name appeared on this Forum’s thread did  I put it together....mystic!

I am wondering why my senior portrait isn't included with the others. There are only about 151 graduates' photos, and I believe we had 799 in our graduating class. Perhaps, these are only of the individuals who are in this group? Were we supposed to submit our own?

Message to all reunion attendees. Though I had a fantastic time, and had tested negative that AM (and was feeling fine), I'm now sick again. Symptoms are like a bad cold; uncontrollable runny nose. It may or may not  be a Covid rebound.

I am SO SORRY if I gave this to anyone. Check your symptoms; feel free to blame me if you must. I will be eternally apologetic.

I too had a great time and was negative before I went. But even having the 3rd booster just the week before, with the large group indoors, I tested positive Monday morning with flu like symtoms. I've been lucky and this was my first bout of covid! So good luck with anyone who doesn't get it!

I woke with a scratchy throat Tuesday morning.   Felt like a cold coming on maybe.   I did a test and was negative Tuesday night.
