ALUMNI UPDATE: John Sarna '49

Life after C&C? I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Civil Engineering from Cornell University, and I have been involved in transportation planning throughout the Hudson Valley region for almost my entire professional career, with a few assignments in Canada, Argentina, and the American west. After retiring from the corporate world...

I started my own consulting practice, which is only now winding to a close. My hobby has been singing—with the Walkabout Clearwater Chorus (Pete Seeger’s chorus), the Westchester Gilbert & Sullivan Group, and several folk music groups. I went to Europe twice, with two different choruses. Many years ago my folk group entertained at the C&C Fair. I still play the recorder; it can be heard on the Walkabout CD. I also play the guitar, Celtic harp, and the pennywhistle. My wife, Estelle, and I have been married 57 years. We have two daughters and four grandchildren. We have been living in the same house in Rockland County, NY, since 1970. We have traveled to over 40 countries, and still have trips planned. Almost 70 years in 200 words. Wow!
