On June 15, 1969, Gazette paperboys got a nice bonus -- a free baseball game. They boarded a Wade Tours bus with Gazette chaperones at 8 a.m. and rolled south to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx for an afternoon appointment. The sports fans would have had a lot to talk about during the 21⁄2-hour ride, which included a stop for lunch. The Yankees would be playing the Seattle Pilots, who had just joined the American League. And just the day before, New York had traded longtime shortstop Tom Tresh to the Detroit Tigers for rookie outfielder Ron Woods. Paperboys might also have thought it was a great day for the road trip. The Yanks were running their annual Bat Day promotion, and every youngster would receive a free wooden souvenir.

Donald Mason and his friends were ready to take on the world. They were young, good-looking teenagers at Draper High School in Rotterdam. They were ready for leadership, as they had just been selected to lead the student council during the 1969-1970 school year. And while some teens were preparing to close their books until September, Jo-An Palkovic and her colleagues at Mont Pleasant High School were hoping classmates would keep at least one book open. Jo-An had recently finished editing the “Mountaineer” yearbook, and kids all over school were signing pages — and signing off for the school year.

The Melo-Dears were in song, smile and swim in June 1968. Schenectady’s singing troupe was preparing for its annual Men’s Night Saturday. Some of the mellow women dressed in bathing styles from the early 1900s to promote an Edwardian number — “You Can Do a Lot of Things at the Seaside That You Can’t Do in Town.” The Melo-Dears will be in action for their 61st show on Saturday at 7 p.m. The women in song will take the stage at the Rotterdam Elks Club. Other groups were into spring swinging in June ’68. Students at the Ellis Hospital School of Nursing danced during their annual formal. Susan Mitchell was crowned queen of the affair, which took place at the Niskayuna Club. The Junior Etude Club named new officers. Bob Boucheron, the new treasurer, serenaded new friends Susan, Betsy, Louise and Martha with a song from his guitar. Niskayuna teens were also entertaining — the school’s annual carnival was held June 8-10, with “Alice in Wonderland” as the theme.
