Needham High School
Class Of 1965
Welcome to the official website of the
Centennial Class of Needham High School, Class of 1965.
Right now we, your Reunion Committee, are working diligently to plan a memorable weekend, while at the same time trying to keep costs down. Not surprisingly, there are ongoing expenses: the website, deposits for the hall, the caterer, etc. What we lack right now is cash.
We are inviting voluntary contributions to help cover costs for the weekend and to build up the amount our class will contribute to the students of NHS. Several of our classmates were asked about contributing. The response was immediate and generous with over three thousand dollars pledged to date. Based on this initial response we believe that a goal of ten thousand dollars is not out of reach for the class as a whole. Dedicated contributions or those in memory of a classmate are welcome.
Also, we feel strongly that cost should not be a reason to miss the reunion. If you can get yourself to Needham, we want you to attend. We are in the process of developing a way to work with classmates who may need financial assistance, one that will be in the strictest confidence.
REUNION DATE AND VENUE
The 50th reunion of the Needham High Class of 1965 will be held in the James Hugh Powers Hall at the Needham Town Hall on Saturday, September 26, 2015. The location is beautiful and classy and a perfect location for the 50th reunion of the 100th class to graduate from Needham High School. We have posted photos of the space in the 50th Reunion photo gallery. The NHS '65 Reunion Committee has secured blocks of rooms at three local hotels for the nights of Thursday September 24 to Sunday September 27, 2015. David Drake posted the details on the Message Forum on October 19.
MISSING CLASSMATES (Missing from our website, that is!)
We're trying to get MANY of our classmates to register on this site, share their memories, their ideas for the reunion, and renew acquaintances. If you know of anyone who hasn't joined yet, please encourage them to sign up!
As you are aware, several of our classmates have died. The "In Memory" section shows their names; but in order to have a rose placed next to a name, someone must add a memory or other tribute for a given classmate. We encourage you to help place a rose next to each and every name on the list.
Please join us and please encourage your friends to sign in, too!
