Dear Carol,

Many thanks again to you and your team for making this happen, and Chris thanks for getting the Club for us. Despite the health and wealth issues of traveling, my wife Joyce and son Garrett are making the trip from DC as well. While Garrett hangs at the hotel pool we intend to take full advantage of the 'Rocket vaccine booster' offered at the bar and hope to catch up with so many of you that I have missed these many years. What an awesome class...Thanks to all, Jeff

Carol, to echo the others, thank you so much for the time & effort you spend to keep our class in touch! It is appreciated! For all of you who are going to the reunion, I hope you have a wonderful time & are able to stay safe & healthy! Those of us who, for one reason or another, aren't attending will hope for some memories & photos afterward!

I'll miss those of you who won't be at reunion, but I totally understand!  I'm looking forward to having a wonderful time celebrating 50! yrs since graduation.  I HATE the masks, but I'm wearing one anyway (they're really good at hiding wrinkles), & I've had all 3 Pfizer jabs, along w a geriatric flu vax.  A pic of my vax card is in my phone.

See you tomorrow evening!  Stay healthy and happy.  Jim, I hope you are feeling OK, sorry you got exposed.  I'll definitely take some pics, Bev, for you too.  Celebrate, celebrate, dance to the music...

Sorry you won't be able to make the reunion Jim, but understand and thank you for not taking the risk of making yourself and posssibly others sick.  I was looking forward to reconnecting.  Stay safe & healthy!  Ginny

Dear 1971 Classmates:

I want to wish you a great reunion evening tonight as you gather together again for the first time in 50 years! I live in San Diego and will not be attending, but I wanted to take a moment to say hi and to wish you all well. Thank you to Carol and others who worked so hard to put this event together.

My best personal regards,

Carole Coleman Graziano

Thank you Carol for all the reunion work! Down in FL and will not be attending. Have only been to one back in 1992. 50 would have been amazing. Was actually supposed to be on a long trip in Europe right now but my fellow travelers backed out. Thank you Covid! Enjoy everyone and stay safe!

Not that coming from Holland would have been a problem, but I could not get other possible visits together to combine the reunion with work.   My wife and I have a wonderful house on a river in the country side and with the kids out of the house we have a B&B with five rooms  www.kerkenstein.com

We can have the reunion in Holland!  Have a great evening.

Thank you Carol and all the volunteers who made last night's reunion such a successful, fun event.  So good to revive old memories and remember where we were fifty years ago.

I had a BLAST!  at the reunion!  Carol, you are a wizard at pulling reunions together-every one of them!  I am so appreciative of you and your commitment to keeping our huge class reunited.

Sweet Caroline, you did it again another time!  50 yrs, yay!  Groovy!

I have 4 or 5 pics, not sure where to upload them.  They may end up on my profile.  Stay tuned!

Suzanne Pike (Seri)

I uploaded a few reunion pics to my profile.  Hope anyone & everyone who took pics will do the same, so we can all enjoy memories of last night!  Thanks!

I saw the new photos you posted from the 45th, but now i cant find the photo gallery of previous years? where is it?

 

Pauline,

After you join go to Our Yearbooks they should be there. Later after we get more pics we will do the 50th.

We went to get the photos out of my camera chip and discovered the photos from the 45th were never posted I swear they were there.

Carol

Although I enjoyed seeing the photos from the 50th reunion, I could hardly identify anyone! I think it would be fun if everyone would put a current photo up on your profile page! Here's mine from yesterday, a selfie I took with my trusty cell phone in front of the sketch made of me in 1970 at the graduation party!

Suzanne Pike (Seri)

Loved seeing the reunion pics!  Thanks, everyone, & esp Carol, who made our 50th reunion so special!!!!

I'm still having trouble sleeping, I'm remembering how much fun it was.  Hello to all the classmates I didn't get to greet - I just saw many of them in the picture gallery.  

Hopefully by our 55th reunion, covid will be just another virus treatable with vaccines, like the flu, & we can let the good times roll once again!

 For reunion pictures go yearbooks and reunion photos click on the first picture to begin the slide show

The pictures I have and can I D have been done

So get your glasses and on the bottom left on the slideshow there are names I am still trying to get a larger font.

I do know what you mean about recognizing people I still have trouble and I was there. Ha Ha.

So send me any photos you may have taken mates.

Hi all:

I'm getting multiple requests to access the movie I sent.  It's Google Drive, & I have tried to grant access to people individually, but my inbox is flooded, and I need to know how to grant the whole class access as once.  I don't know how to do it, neither does anyone else I"ve asked.

Please be patient till I can find out how to do it.  I'm not a techie.  Anyone in our class able to help me?  It has to do with the movie settings, & it being in Google Drive.  I'm getting peoples' email addresses.  

Should I just type in www.needhamhighschoolclassof1971.com? maybe that's the group I need to grant access to.  I know it'll be resolved eventually if I can find someone to tell me how to do it.

Sue

mates
Try the link on the message below it might work . It works for me.
Please let  me know if it doesn't. 

Carol

Suzanne Pike (Seri)

I got 36 email requests to share the movie...I have to do each one individually, since I do not know how to send permission to the whole class at once.  I'm now in possession of everyone's email addresses too.

Again, please be patient while Carol & I try to figure out how to do this!  Again, anyone w web skills, please speak up and help here, much appreciated!

Thanks!

Suzanne Pike (Seri)

Asking for help AGAIN-I'm swamped w requests from the whole class of '71, & I have to grant access to movie for everyone individually.   Our class was huge!  Getting requests from people who weren't at the reunion, too.

Someone out there must know how to manage Google Drive.  There's also a Jumbo Google Drive, my husband told me.  Anyone know about that?

Anyone have more pics to give to Carol?   


10/18/21 02:50 PM #22    

 

Suzanne Pike (Seri)

Pauline, blame it on Google Drive...nothing I can do about it.  I have answered at least 200 emails requesting access.  Good grief!  Thanks for the feedback.


Carol here,

OOPS !  i clearly dont know enough about google technology. 
I hate how they can track and bother people.

Thank you all for coming to our  50th reunion !

A special thanks Chris Pooley for sponsoring our event it was a tremendous help to maintain a solid treasury to keep up with rising costs for any future events.

Thank you Diane Dinneen and Martha Taylor Brennan from the class of 1970 for taking care of the 'sign in' duties and taking photos.

Bobby Fields is in another reunion website for NHS.     He wrote a lot about what he's been up to since HS, & has a few pics posted too.  Awesome to see another classmate!
