Blog Update

The Chic-a-Lac Blog is finally undergoing renovation, rehabilitation, revision, renewal, reorganization, revitalization and resuscitation. All of this is happening in stages. Some of the old features are gone, such as the Virtual Patio Message Board which is no longer supported, some have been updated like the Youngsville weather thingy, many of the links, like the Camp Album, in the right sidebar and in the posts themselves need relinking in order to work and some new material and features will be added. So please bear with us if some of the things just don't seem to work right. And please feel free to pass along your thoughts, ideas and even a minor criticism or two. You can always reach the blog by clicking on this button Ca. Chic a Lac Mail Thanks for your understanding.

On October 24, 2007, Marcy Silverberg Pulewitz, Rocky Rattner, Carol Deedledum Galetz, Vic Greenhut, Paul Auerbach, and I got together at the "Catskill On Film" discussion at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, in Battery Park City, New York. The event was hosted by Prof. Phil Brown of Brown University (rah), founder and head of The Catskills Institute, and featured Shelly Altman, screenwriter, Sweet Lorraine; Pamela Gray, screenwriter, A Walk on the Moon; and Joan Micklin Silver, director, Hester Street and Crossing Delancey (click here to see a detailed description of the program and the museum exhibit). Carol, Rocky, and Paul Auerbach particularly have had strong family ties to the Catskills, with Paul's family having owned the Lesser Lodge in White Sulphur Springs. The movie clips were classics and caught much of the essence of the Catskill culture. As always happens when Chic-a-Lac refugees gather, we had lots of laughs and a wonderful time, although we felt a bit constrained since Dr. Ruth was sitting right in front of us. For the next mini-reunion, how about renting both movies and inviting Shecky Greene?

Has Rocky taken off this shirt since the reunion in July 2005?

Couldn't tell you. He sat in the back (just kidding).

Glad to hear you had such a great time but I'm not surprised. We sure do know how to have fun together. As I was looking at the photo all of you at the Catskills on Film event, the photos to the right were running and there was Vic on Gold Rush Day--he looks the same!

Hey Corinne - don't we all?

Marcy Silverberg said...

Whoops! Evidently I need tutorial 101 & 102. Here's the rest of message: Thx also to Carol, Corinne, Rocky, Mort, Neil & everyone else who helped to produce reunion, incl spouses who were all such good sports. Was great to be together again. And yes, Janet & I are still joined at the hip when we're in the same room! Love to all-& thank you... Chicksville Marcy
