For the second time Hank “Zeus II” Aberman organized a casual Saturday afternoon get together for Saginaw Alums at the Waterfront Marriott in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore. About 20 Supes from the 1950’s through 1970’s got together with old friends for lunch and reminiscence and a whole bunch of needling.
The morning began with lots of back slapping and finger pointing at images and memorabilia from scrap books, albums, and manila folders full of photos of past accomplishments as well as embarrassing hairdos and outfits.
Much like last year, Jim Korman and Joel Levin were at their best, pointing out errors and omissions in everyone stories and getting the record straight. Mickey Rothstein, who has as much history as anyone from the developmental era of 50’s and 60’s, was joy to see and listen to recounting how The Hill concept evolved. Ken Waissman, a bit of an icon himself, shed some light on the theatrics of camp life both on and off the stage. Peep Cohen and Maddie Zimmerman brought a cache of stuff that engaged everyone in the who’s who conversation of the good old days.
Lunch was next with plenty of healthy salads, fish entrees, and a range fed burger on the menu to choose from.
Plenty of family talk as old friends were catching up over lunch about what they have been up to for the last 60 years.
There was a sweet moment as Hank presented a plaque recognizing Moe’s efforts in organizing and presenting the Saginaw Super Senior Alumni website.
As I said the table tops were full of nostalgic and surprising images like these to harvest and become part of this Saginaw Super Senior Alumni website. Special thanks to Peep Cohen, Maddy Zimmerman, Joel Levin, and others who brought this stuff to entertain their Saginaw friends.
Hank has already announced that we will do it all over again next spring at the same place. So mark your calendar for Saturday April 28, 2018 and plan to join us for another memory-fest at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore.
