Northfield Mount Hermon School
Class Of 1965
From your site administrator: I'll be on campus for a day trip on Saturday of Reunion Weekend, June 3, hope to see some of the 1965 class there. I encourage you to log in and and let classmates know what's going on in your post-50th reunion life. I confess I've not posted lately, and will change that. Through email contact, I see classmates getting together, visiting each other, taking trips, checking off bucket list items. My sense is that we'd like to hear about this stuff. So, jump onto this site and bring everyone up to date. You could also connect through Facebook, I now have 3 guys I've been communicating with as "friends", an interesting term. I consider everyone in '65 as a potential friend through social media, although we may not have known each other back then, and haven't seen each other in person since the '60's.
Through the generosity of a number of our classmates, our site will stay alive through June of 2021! Much appreciation and thanks to the donors, who received individual thank-yous as well. So, now post something in your profile. Or create one if you haven't yet.
Keep checking this site regularly for general news about the class, the school, and for all the individual comments and news posted by your friends. We're happy to hear about what's happening in your life. Publish anything? Retire? Move to Pago Pago? Let us know. We've always been an active group. Let's keep the Spirit of "65 rolling into our next decade!
Check below for some fun video taken by one of our classmates at our 50th reunion, June 4-7 of 2015. (Sorry for the font changes, unavoidable). Visit this home page to direct you to all information, photos, and stories from our four days on campus. Glorious weather, amazing turnout, endless singing and darn good food accompanied the hundreds of stories told. To those who shared our time on campus, thank you! Whether you attended reunion or not, check out the 50th Reunion photo gallery.
108 classmates had registered by June 1, their names are on the list on menu to the left, "Who's Registered?". If you were there, and don't see your name, let me know, I'll get it posted.
50th Reunion Yearbook still available...scroll down to the announcement section of this page for the link to order, pricing, and a link to preview the book if you need a peek first.
2017 and moving forward resolution: Promise to keep in touch with your dorm mates, your sports team members, your old friends, those who came and those were not able to make it. Don't lose contact. Think about visiting the campus during school time, stop into a few classes, see the continuing improvements in the best secondary education available. And, consider swinging through during Reunion 2017 in early June, there will be friends from 1967 at their 50th who would love to see you, as well as many other folks, including faculty and staff to reconnect with. Your site administrator should be there Saturday each and every year on a day trip from upstate NY, barring an early season hurricane of course.
Videos from the Reunion which Bob Kowal took at the hymn sing and the parade into the chapel are available. To see/hear the singing at our reunion, here is the Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/
channel/. This was Bob's first time trying to upload videos to You Tube, so please excuse any errors. Every video HAD been given a title, but for some reason they all did not “stick”. Therefore, the DSCNO’s with the title are listed below in the next paragraph. When the site opens it takes a few seconds for the Thumbnails to appear, and press the arrow on the right side of the Thumbnails, because there are 7 total. The footage is raw and unedited and you will have to bear listening a few times to the unmelodious voice of the video taker. At times it may be painful, but thankfully doesn’t last too long. Fair warning. If you would like to get them sent to you by e mail please contact Bob Kowal: email@example.com. That email version will also include some still shots of classmate at the reunion, June 2015. UCIPeQ1pAgZHWCame1aMfSlA
