40-Year Reunion Plans and News

MISSING CLASSMATES - added 03/14/06

PLANNING TO ATTEND - added 07/24/06, updated 09/27/06


We still have people signing up this week - which is great. 
However, our absolute deadline is next Wednesday, September 27. 

That is when we close out the food order.  I would hate for people to show up at the door Saturday night and the food
run short.  While we would not dream of turning people away - there are deadlines we have to meet and the food
is one of them. 
It looks like the storm that I was worried about - Helene, may not be a factor after all.  I have been praying so hard
that we have good weather.  I hope those attending will say a little prayer as well. 
Take care and see you next week!!

Thanks, Dee!
We will have Life Touch Photographers at the reunion on Saturday night taking individual pictures as well as pictures
of the festivities all evening.  Their cost, if people order now, is $20 per book.  At the reunion it will be $25 per book. 
The photos will be taken in black and white.  I am attaching the order form so you can post the information on the site. 
We used this same company in 1996 at our 30-year reunion and were very pleased with the results.

I sent out an e-mail tonight telling everyone that we were not longer requesting the guys to wear coat and ties. 
They can wear golf shirts if they would like.  We want they guys and gals to be comfortable.

Thanks, Dee!


The NNHS Class of 1966 reunion will be open to all NNHS classmates. 

It has been slow going getting all the cost information we need to come up with a pricing structure but I think -
mind you - THINK - we are about ready for that.  I'm sure something will crop up to change this ALMOST positive feeling.
