The Catskill High School graduating class of 1926 included Frances Plusch; in the class photo above she is the young lady near the center of the picture wearing a white dress or blouse with the dark floppy bow at the neck.
The color photo above shows the same lovely lady, Frances Plusch Binder (seated) and Ruth Vedder Schmidt (standing, left) enjoying the festivities at the Catskill High School Alumni Dinner which took place at The Inn at Leeds on June 24, 2006. 
Mrs. Binder was celebrating her 80-year high school reunion, and was honored that evening as the oldest graduate attending the reunion.  Mrs. Schmidt, a  bit younger, has been recognized in other years as the oldest person present at the alumni dinner but on this occasion achieved only runner-up status.  We salute these two remarkable ladies who, in their nineties, remain active and involved in community activities, demonstrating an enviable spirit of fun, a zest for living, and a keen interest in the world around them.

Photo of a Catskill school class circa 1914 or 1915. Sylvia's uncle, Edward Jones, is the young man standing near the center in light-colored shirt and light-colored trousers.  Her father, Clifford Arthur Story (1901-1954), is standing next to him in the dark suit.

Photo of a Catskill class, which is labeled as 1913.  Sylvia's father, Clifford Story (1901-1954), who is the third boy from the left who is wearing a tie, was born in 1901, so it appears to be junior high school or whatever they called it then.  Can anyone identify any of the others?
