New Kensington PA Alumni,
High School Memories and Class Reunions
| This site is dedicated to the people of New Kensington and the areas surrounding
New Kensington. This is for those people who want to post memories (printed or photos) of
the town and it's people. I was born in New Kensington (Ridge Avenue), and will never
forget those wonderful times. I attended the third Ward Elementary School and seventh
grade at Ken High, then my family moved to Springdale.
I can still see the gym, the
class rooms and the walks to and from school as if it were yesterday. My friends
and I were Downtown at the movies, watching Buck Privates with
Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. It was Sunday, my Dad picked us up after
the movie because it was dark. It got dark early in December. He gave us
the news on the way home. It was December 7th 1941.
I will post some
photos that I have, but this is for you, so don't hesitate to email me. I will post any
written comments that you would like to submit. If you have photos, I prefer
that you have them scanned and email them to me in a jpg format. However
if there is no scanner available, send them by post with a self addressed
stamped envelope and I will scan them, then return them to you. Welcome,
New Kensington. - Sam Younghans

Seeking an alumni person to take over this web site. There doesn't appear to be an Alumni Association in New Kensington. I found a web site that is trying to cash in on the Alumni by setting up a site and then getting people to register and probably charging a fee. I don't do that.
I was thinking of the New Kensington Alumni Association, but there doesn't seem to be one. If there is one, I would like the New Kensington Alumni Association to take over the site, so that it can continue to serve the New Kensington Alumni. I want to give it to them - I never charged any one to be on that site, like Classmates.com does. It was meant to support the Alumni. This was done in 1999 for the 2000 All-Class Reunion, and still continues. I will help with the transfer and answer any questions. highest offer. I never wanted
Someone has set up an alumni site that is not connected to the alumni association - they require a registration in order to get your email address for spamms and ads.

I have changed computers a number of times and also changed over from PC to Mac, so I lost a lot of emails, that I had intended to post. Please try me again. Also, I would like to see someone take over this New Kensington site. I am getting older, and would like to see it continue on after I am gone. I am very busy working on "Cancel Christmas", a musical play and a book that I wrote some time ago. I plan to produce the play here in Ashland, Oregon. The book is published! Click here to view.

second world war (you remember, the war, that was after the war, that would end all wars.) I
moved away from New Kensington a long time ago, but memories of the times spent
there are still fresh in my mind. I would love to talk to some of those
old school buddies. If you read this and know any of them, please, tell them about this site. Some of the ones I remember
