Al Adam: I live in Westlake Village in Southern California. Moved here in 1977. I'm married to Marilyn and we have twin 4-year old girls, Erica and Allison. I work for Prudential Securities as a financial advisor.
Memories: The awful biology "mouse" project I did with Steve Mitchell; Tastycakes for lunch; dating Donna Baum.
James Adams: I live at 90 Main Street, Vincentown and work for Gower's Landscaping. I still do some farming by helping Pat Giberson.
Hi Classmates! I have been living in my hometown of Vincentown, in
my 183 year old home, for the past 26 years. I separated from my husband
of 29 years this past October. I have 4 children. Twins Michelle and
Michael (28), Brett (27 or 6 in leap years) and Craig (22). Michelle
lives with me and is aspiring to be an actress. She was an extra for the
soon to be released movie Jersey Girl. She also has received numerous
poetry awards. Michael graduated from West Virginia University in '98
with a business degree and moved to Atlanta, GA. He works in the
accounting department for In-Zone. Brett graduated from Burlington County
College in '98 and works for an architect firm in Cherry Hill, NJ and
lives in Maple Shade, NJ. Craig is a senior at West Virginia University
majoring in Political Science and English. No marriages or grandchildren
yet. For the past 19 years I have worked as an administrator for a
lobbyist organization in Trenton, NJ. On a little inspirational note, now
that we are all in our 50's, I completed a triathlon, which was a 1/4 mile
swim, 15 mile bike ride and 3 mile run (I jogged) in my hometown at the
age of 50 (and I said I could never do it). Never say never! It took a
tremendous amount of discipline (I trained daily for 6 months) and
determination, but I did it! As Walt Disney said, "If you can dream it,
you can do it!"
Memories: My fondest memories of Lenape are the dances (I still love to bristol stomp), football games and being the Lenape Indian mascot my senior year with Diane Bott. Great Times!
Kathy Anderson Cantiello: I still live in South Jersey in a little town called Gibbsboro. It is about 1/2 mile from Echelon Mall. I've been married for 30 years to Bill. We have two children, Kristen (28) and Billy (27). We also have twin grandsons who will be 7 in Feb. I am retired from Allstate Ins., where I was an adjuster for four years. After that I was a chiropractic assistant for three years.
Memories: I remember being terrified the first day of freshman year and worrying if I could find my way around and not be late for class. I also remember fondly senior year and being able to sit in senior court while underclassmen walked to class. There was cutting school and heading to the shore for the day. Kathy Kotula, Marilyn O'Neal and I did that frequently.
Sue Anderson-Baber We live in Naperville, Il. Have lived here for 10 years, after traveling through Germany, D,C. Conn, Texas, Va. and Pa. Love it here. We have 4 children David, Cynthia, Katherine, and Bradley, and that has been my life focus. Now that the grandchildren are arriving, I can see what a gift that is.
Memories: As we get older.........maybe just more mature, there are many lessons from our times there at Lenape. Hopefully we have all learned from them. I think I might have.
Angstadt: Live in Ottumwa Iowa, been married for 30
years to same person, we
John Arkema: I have been living in Vincentown since 1985. I supervise and teach at Delran High School. My daughter, Leighanne, attends Rowan University. She is going to be an Art Teacher. We board a horse at Joan Feeley's Farm, Buttonwood Stables, right around the corner, so I still have to see Joan. She looks great, despite her age. My favorite hobbies are fishing and boxing. Afterall, I got beat up enough times at Lenape, for my quiet mouth
Memories: All the good times we had doing all the bad things. Many Fond memories with friends,Rich Haines, Bruce Clark, Steve Kucinski, Mike Moore, Dave Harvey, Charlie Lehman and many others. All the days we cut and went to Garden State Race Track or to my house on Long Beach Island. One day we were riding to the Shore on Route 72. We looked over and Mr. Galtere was riding next to us.
Cathy Baglio Dilorenzo: I must thank MaryKay for putting me in touch with this website and getting re-acquainted with so many of my high school buddies. I was on my way to NYC to see Rod Stewart and this lovely lady asked me if I was Cathy Baglio, and my reply was sort of. I really had no idea to whom I was conversing, and it was MaryKay. Anyway, here I am again. Let's see, since graduation I have been involved mainly with raising my two children, George now 25 and Jocelyn, now 21. I have taught 5th and 6th grade Social Studies, did the child rearing piece, and then went to teach high school for 10 years. Finally at age 50, I completed my Masters Degree. I am now in my second career as a high school Guidance Counselor at Princeton High School-a very wealthy and stressful district. I don't ever plan on retiring-not at least for 20 more years. I still love to sing and can't wait to see everyone at our 35th Reunion.
Memories: I can still see Mr. and Mrs. Ferry ice skating and dancing with one another, and long to smell the old Friday night bonfires that preceded Saturday football. I can also see Sue Shadell applying her make-up for hours in the school bathroom. Those were great days.
Bob Bartello: I live in Medford with my wife of 25 years, Sue, and our two daughters. Stacey, age 23, graduated from Shawnee and Salisbury University, She teaches English at BCIT in Medford.

I also have two grandsons Thomas 5yrs and Tyler almost 2yrs. I am an Account Representative for a Distributor of Heating and Air Cond. supplies. I am trying to get my memory cells to work at remembering who most people are. I know that the old year book will have to guide my memories. I joined the Navy about a year after High School. Vietnam was going strong and my number had come up for the draft. I decided to join the Navy. Much to my surprise I tried out and passed the rigorous training and Volunteered for The Seals. I do come out to New Jersey about every other year to visit my sister and my mom. They live in South Hampton. I was just out the beginning of January. I plan to come out for the reunion in 2004. Please forgive me if I don't remember everyone.

Bowen: I moved to California in 1976. Currently I am
living in Victorville, Ca. I am on my second career cause I screwed up my
first one. I am attending Azusa Pacific University and I am studying to
be a teacher. Lemme see,hmmmmmmmm, I recently married the most wonderful
woman on the planet. I am trying not to become as wide as I am tall. I
would like to get outa college before I die of old age. I feel kinda
lucky cause I still have to get hair cuts, and have most of my own teeth,
(not store-bought.) Upon graduation, I hope to work in a charter school
system (alternative education) and help students with learning
disabilities realize they can be successful. I would like to tell
everyone that I am 6'3" tall and built like a Greek God, but that would be
lying. I am old, fat, and outa shape. If I went surfing today I would
drown, and if I stepped on the ice to play hockey I would likely have a
heart attack. Can I update this when I get in shape?
Memories: Surfing with Mark Hopkins and Glenn Hinkle at Long Beach Island. Playing ice hockey on Medford and Birchwood Lakes. Fishing with Mike McClatchey. I really didn't like high school. I had a few close friends, but did not enjoy my time spent there. (I think they let me out just to get rid of me.)

It took me about 10 years and 2 kids to realize my "hippie days" were over and that it was a miracle I was still alive... & with brain cells left! ....so as a single mom...and with some "divine" intervention from strong Christian friends.... I started college at the age of 29, obtained a B.A. in Business Admin. and teacher certification at age 35, remarried in 1985, taught for 15 years in the Burlington Twp Sch. District, got my Masters in School Counseling and am now a Counselor at Mt. Laurel Schools... where I started.
Memories: Teachers have incredible impact on their students.......Mrs. Annette Gohagen ("Business" English) and Mrs. Virginia Cramer (Typing, Steno) These two female teachers helped me believe I could make it through college...that I had something to offer...even 34 years after High School graduation I am still grateful to them.

Have been divorced for 1 year after 32 years but I'm doing good. I have had several careers, but am presently the Pastoral Administrative Assistant. That's just a fancy name for secretary.
Memories: I remember good friends, my band uniform and parties in Medford.
Suzanne Dillenschneider Walsh:After high school I tried attending college but couldn’t bear the structure. I thought I knew it all anyway (didn’t we all at 19) so I quit to work in Philadelphia in various executive secretarial positions growing into legal assistant positions in a couple of Philly law firms. Having had enough of that bullcockie, I moved on to a scientific institute in Philly for 14 years working in the human resources department where I learned to work with employees from all backgrounds - real people – all of the worker bees, down to earth, kinds of people. During the course of this time, I became engaged and disengaged twice. In 1992 I met the love of my life, Harry Walsh, whose family owned the 2nd oldest liquor license in the City of Philadelphia (how lucky can I get) and married him in June of 1994 on the hottest day in the history of my short life in Philadelphia. We have no children – only kits. Harry tired of shoveling snow and other stuff in Delaware County, PA and decided we could live as happily ever after in a warmer climate. So we moved to Ormond Beach, Florida in January of 2000, during a 14” snow storm, which sealed the commitment of this move to both of us. It took a year for us to adjust to Flor-i-duh what with their chads, dimpled chads, and pregnant dimpled chads, clans, bolt & nut stores, wally worlds, bike week, biktoberfest and car racing fans. Not to mention palmetto bugs, fire ants, big black ants, spiders the size of a football field and snakes. And did I mention how bad the economy is down here? Well there’s my life in a nutshell.
Memories: I remember being terrified in the freshman bleachers the first day of school, praying they would pronounce my last name (Dillenschneider) correctly so I wouldn’t be embarrassed. They stumbled over it, I survived.
A very fond memory is of the Friday night dances, Motown music, line dances, sloooohh songs and BOYS!! Yahoo!

heartbreaking work and my husband finally got tired of me coming home

set the world on fire. After a crippling accident I now work at a local
ski resort. I am a supervisor for activities which means I take care of
all the fun stuff. I haven't made it to any reunions because I really have
been busy. But the kids are grown now and with only 2.5 (one is in
college) at home I have a lot more time for things I'd like to do. See
