A recent bio:
Diane Menio is the executive director of CARIE, the Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly. She has been associated with CARIE for 20 years, 14 as director. During that time she has worked to develop new programs, establish a National Advisory Board and build its volunteer complement to more than 100. The organization is respected locally, statewide and nationally as a crucial advocate for seniors. Menio has trained extensively in the detection and prevention of abuse in the home as well as in institutional settings and other issues affecting the frail elderly. She received a Master of Science in Gerontology from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. She serves on the Governor’s Intra-Governmental Council on Long Term Care, the Department of Public Welfare’s Stakeholder Planning Team, the Assisted Living Workgroup, and the Senior Citizen’s Committee of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. In 2007 Menio received the Advocate of the Year Award from the SeniorLAW Center, and in 2009 she was the recipient of United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania’s Champion for Health Impact Award.

Also Married 1989 (together since 1984) and have beautiful 14 year old daughter. Right now spending a lot of time with my mother at Westminster Village in Allentown.

I have traveled a lot but still have many places to go.

Unfortunately haven't kept up with people from HS.

School Story:

It seems so long ago I don't remember much! The one thing I'll never forget is the day that Ms. Linglebach (sp?) did not show up for class. Tim Mulchaney sat behind me and when someone came into class to let us know - I seem to remember the husband there that day too - Tim tapped me on the back and said, "maybe she's dead." Well likely all remember seeing the body removed from the house on the evening news...

Then we had a substitute, Jay Kern who didn't seem to know much about Trigonometry but all of the girls were gaga for him - he broke his leg during the school year and he was out - the next substitute was not memorable - if it had been Mrs. Nagle or Nagel, I think I'd remember! Anyway, the reason I remember Jay Kern is because after I went to Kutztown, he was there as a graduate student and one of my friends who liked to collect people brought him back to our dorm in Sophomore year. I was quite surprised to see him and vice versa - we became friends and the rest is a long story not appropriate for these pages.
