Thanks, Pam!


A group portrait of members of the Great NNHS Class of 1965 will be taken at the reunion
on Saturday night, sometime around 9:00 - 9:30 PM.  This will be similar to the one taken
last year of the Great NNHS Class of 1964:

Similarly, you may pre-pay $22.00 plus $5.00 S & H, and fill out the necessary form Saturday night.

These are waaaay cool, and you'll want to be there, and you'll want to purchase one, trust me!


We need some stories for the program.  Can be stories from when we were any age.  Can't promise Pauline and I will use them, but I'd love to have a large group from which to choose.  Here's an example of what I am talking about:

When I was in the 5th grade, I was always getting in trouble talking
(imagine that!).  My teacher, Mrs. Ransome, had moved me all around the room to no avail.  Finally, she said she was moving me to sit by the quietest person in the class.  It was Debby Fink.  But, it didn't work - I got Debby in trouble talking when we shouldn't have been (I am SO sorry, Debby).  Mrs. Ransome announced that she believed I could make the dead speak.

I know Van Rowell has a great story about someone breaking his leg - no lie! Van, please send me that.

---So, if you want to share, please do.

We have reserved a block of 20 rooms at the hotel. 
When those run out, you are on your own, but there are plenty of places around.  Please make your own hotel reservations.

Greetings all you Typhoons.  The Reunion Committee wanted to remind all
of you that it's just over eight weeks until we want you to join us in Newport
News for the big 40th reunion celebration.  Celebration you say?  You bet -
forty years later we all have experiences that should be shared and
friendships that should be renewed.  So please make plans right now to join
us.  As of today we have forty paid attendees ready to go.  A list of those
signed up is now available on the website and will be updated every few
days.  Make sure your name is on it.  And if you're one of the ones who
signed up early we really appreciate it.  Having a good projection on the
numbers is necessary to make the event as much fun as possible.

If you're one of the folks who have told us you'll be signing up any minute
now please do it right away.  At this point I should remind you that the cut
off for early registration, and the LOWER PRICE, is September 15th.  So
please take a moment to sit down, get out the checkbook, and get yourself
signed up to join us.  Checks should be made payable to NNHS Class of 1965,
and mailed to Dave Arnold, 153 Exmoor Court, Williamsburg, VA 23185.  The

$30.00 per person for Saturday evening.  After the 15th it will be $25.00
and $40.00 per person.  The money you save for signing up now can be used
to buy gas to get here.  What a deal!  And don't forget your room - call the

Hi Gang,

We wanted to give you a brief on the survey responses to this point. As of today we've received 11 responses.
I've mailed a few to people that couldn't open the attachments but have not had them returned yet. We're still
early in the process so I'm not too concerned at this point. We've also received $350.00 in contributions.

- Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 04/07/05
Thanks, Dave!



I have assumed the responsibilities of treasurer for the Class of '65 Reunion Committee.
We are in the planning stages, but there will be expenses prior to the actual reunion.
If anyone one would like to DONATE to the fund, please send your check
to Class of '65 Reunion Committee, % Ron Smith, 815 Lancaster Lane, Newport News, VA 23602.
The more we can get prior to the actual event will mean the less each person attending will have to pay.
Thanks, Ron

Thanks, Ron!

Last night we had another meeting of the Reunion Committee with good attendance. 
In order that folks may begin to plan we have selected a date for the 2005 reunion. 
October 21 and 22, 2005, will be the days for the big event.

We're still reviewing hotel locations and beginning negotiations 
to obtain good rates for class members and guests. 
We also hope to have several activities during the weekend that will cater to lots of interests. 
Once the hotel is selected we'll be sending out a survey
to determine which activities would generate the most interest.  
We would like to obtain the mailing addresses of class members
to begin preparations for sending out the survey, 
so if you could place that request on the page we'll start compiling that information. 

Thanks again for all you do.

- Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 06/25/04
Thanks, Dave!

At the reunion committee meeting last week we decided to establish an e-mail address for any activity regarding the 40th reunion. 
Please make an announcement on the site that the address is

Come Together

- John Lennon

Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got Joo-Joo eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his arms, yeah, you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Come together, come together, come together, come together, ...
