  1. Hi Mike,
    Not sure if you remember me from our elementary school days. I was excited to see this article run under the Unadilla news, as I have thought of you and Angie often over the years. Especially when my daughter rides the school bus now and stops at Tristan’s house — just like the good old days, only a new generation 🙂

    Congratulations on all of your many accomplishments!
