This website is for the WPHS Class of 1978 (and friends), and by the WPHS Class of 1978 (and friends). It is intended to be reflective of our experiences before, during, and after our high school years. It was originally designed to serve as a bridge that would connect us to our 30th reunion, and assist us to remain connected afterwards.
We are now planning our 35th ReUnion via the same bridge.
This website is still being built one small piece at a time, via the efforts and generosity of those who continue to send in photos, comments, memories, suggestions, etc. All are encouraged to participate, and all participation is greatly appreciated.
Please join us on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the Tarrytown Hyatt™ Hotel for the 40th Walter Panas Class of 1978 High School ReUnion.
Tell your friends. It's gonna be a Good Time!

Wrestling Team c. 1978. This is one of my favorite pictures. All of the guys on this team were Studs. But you'll notice there were only five teamates. These five won most of their individual bouts, but invariably ended up losing the team match because they forfeited the majority of the weight classes. (L-R): Barbara Hatzmann, Glenn O'Neill, Doug Percesepe, Greg Shea, Cheryl Wright. Kneeling: Billy Murphy, Chris Dalo, Frank "Spanky" Mann. Missing: Steve Hamilton, Ray Scalone, Terry Donnellan.
