March 29 – Happy Birthday John Naple

Amsterdam_LibraryHe was the first of six kids born to John and Dorothy Naple and he was named after his Dad. He graduated from St. Mary’s Institute in 1964 and got his teaching degree from Plattsburgh. John Naple then served his country as a member of the Peace Corps. He went to Ghana in West Africa and worked as a teacher for some of the poorest children on planet Earth. (John’s wife Linda went to Ghana too and served as a nurse.) When he came back to the states, he became a science teacher at Galway High School and is now retired.

John loves Amsterdam and fortunately for all of us…
