Linda Hall (Class of ’67) and Gary Hall (Class of ‘67)
In 1966, while at my locker between classes, a handsome young man stopped by and asked me if I’d like a stick of gum. Juicy Fruit, actually. My favorite. Gary was pledging for a fraternity at that time, so he always had gum on hand. I turned, looked at him and thought, he seems quite nice and said, “Yes, thanks.” This year, we will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

Herbert W. Beman Jr. (Class of '76) and Corrine M. Beman (Ockenhouse) (Class of '85)
I met my wife when she came with her father to apply for membership in the Port Dickinson Fire Department. I was on the membership committee at that time. We started dating in November 1986 and got married on July 1, 1989. Not actually at Chenango Valley, but within the Chenango Valley school district. Together for over 34 years and married  32 years this year. We also served for several years together in the Port Dickinson Fire Department.

The Rileys
Elizabeth Genter Riley (Class of '09) and Brandon Riley (Class of '08)
Brandon and I met fourteen years ago, almost to the day! I was a sophomore and he was a junior at the time. We had seen each other in the halls for quite sometime and then I finally had the guts to say something to him, even if I used the social platform MySpace to do so. After talking for a little while he asked me to be his date at his junior dinner dance. From then on he was my date for every single school dance. I wore his jersey as I cheered him on from the stands at every football game. Since then we have not only grown up but grown together. We’ve experienced so much together, good and bad. We have been by each others side every step of the way. We have an incredible three year old son Declan McGregor and one baby in heaven. We own two homes within Chenango Valley district and we find comfort in the memories we share while on our daily drive past the high school. Our life together started in the halls of Chenango Valley High school.  Brandon is my person, my forever date, and my lobster.

Betty Trebilcock Church (Class of '58) and Bruce Church (Class of '58)
We met on a blind date in January 1954 at the last dance being held by Port Dickinson School to honor the final 9th grade students that were about to transition to North High School for their remaining years of education.  There was no  high school in the district at that time, but plans were in progress for the new Chenango Valley High School being built "up on the hill". Meanwhile several temporary buildings were set up on the side of Port Dick school to house the current students  until the completion of the new school in apprx. 2 years.
We were both in 8th grade and 13 years old. I attended St. Paul's in Binghamton and Bruce was in Port Dick, where he attended since kindergarten. This "date" was arranged by a girl we both knew -  I from our church and Bruce from his Port Dick class. I never laid eyes on my so so handsome date until he arrived at our door that January evening while his father waited patiently in the car. Of course he had to come in and meet my parents!  It was a very fun and good time and I REALLY liked Bruce. Over the next months I decided I wanted to transfer to Port Dick School and my parents were okay with it - still cannot believe they let me go to that dance at age 13.  BUT thank God they did.  We dated for most of  high school, graduated together in "58 in the 1st class from the new beautiful CV High School and the rest is history. We married in 1960, just celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary in June 2020.Built our home in CV district, had 4 great children, 2 sons 2 daughters - all graduates of CVCS. They have blessed us with 12 wonderful grandchildren (3 now married giving us 3 more special grandsons-in-law, 2 precious little great granddaughters and in a year we will add another special granddaughter-in-law. So, how blessed are we??? And it all started at CV.

Joan Knaphle Devine (Class of '67) and Bernie Devine (Class of '66)
We met in Math class (was it Advanced Algebra?).  I was a sophomore, but in accelerated math classes, so in with the Juniors.  Although we later realized that when he played JV football and I was a cheerleader, I called his name in Roll Call cheer (Fate?) and we had danced together a couple times at Record Hops (remember those?)  He was best friends with my girlfriend's boyfriend, so she offered to "fix us up." So when he asked me out, sometime in Spring '65 I assumed we were double dating with my friend.  No, turns out he decided all on his own.  We double dated with another Junior couple and went to the Front Street Drive-In.  After that he started calling me and we would talk on the phone "for hours".  In those days, he had to pull phone cord into a closet so he could have a private conversation (remember?).  We survived him going away for summer job and "went steady" my junior year.  Then in college, we both dated other people, but always got back together in summer.  Got married after I graduated in 1967 (he had moved to Philadelphia where I went to college) and we "went steady" again my senior year and got engaged New Year's Eve. The rest, they say "is History".
