The Short Life of Lansdowne-Aldan High School

Our student council president Fred Weinstein tells me he recently met a woman who said she was in the last graduating class of Lansdowne-Aldan High School before the name changed to Penn Woods.  Since we were the first under that name, they agreed the two of them were the perfect bookends.  (Fred always was gregarious, and men get more so as we age.)

She was in the class of 1982, so only 28 years fills the space between the bookends. Doesn’t sound like much.

As I recollect, we were given the choice of “Lansdowne” or “Lansdowne-Aldan” on our class rings because the “Aldan” was added to the name during our final school year. I still have it and would tell you my choice if I could only find it.
