Fellow Classmates from the class of 72, we hope you are doing well, as we are having a record setting hot summer !!!!

July 11th Update.

All, I wanted to bring you up to date on a couple of topics. First, in the March update I told you the reunion committee, mostly Midge, has been working with Newton Forestry Department to plant a tree in front of the High School with a plaque stating it was donated by the NHS Class of 1972. I am pleased to report this project was completed a couple of weeks ago. 

 

 

The Class of 1972 has planted this Maple Tree

Glad we got a watering bag to keep this tree alive in the heat

____________________________________________

Yes, that’s our tree just about dead center

in front of the High School. It will grow!!

____________________________________________

We got a very nice Plaque and yes,

its cemented in, or so I was told.

Actually, it may outlast the tree, Yikes!

__________________________________________________________

And here is our tree champion Midge. We have to give her

credit for her steadfast efforts to get this tree planted,

and on school property. Originally the city wanted us to plant it

in an open space in Newtonville.

 

Well so much for the tree. Regarding donations for our annual scholarship. So far we've had several of you make a donation. We greatly appreciate your participation. I have left the scholarship donation link open for anyone still thinking of donating to help needs- based students make it into college. 

Well as those Loonie Tune cartoons we all watched ended with, I will end with "Thats all Folks". At lease until I have new news to report.

 

May 6th Update

The Reunion Committee would like to thank all of you who have contributed to the annual scholarship fund !!!!  We are off to a great start towards reaching our goal of $1000 for the 2024 award.

It’s not too late to contribute. Your contribution, no matter the amount, will be helping a “Need Based”, first generation college bound student to have the opportunity to attend college.

To contribute, go to our home page; https://www.newtonhigh1972.com/  and look for the “Class of 1972 Scholarship Find link in the upper right column.

Best Regards to all,

Your 50th Reunion Committee.

 

Update - March 2023

The reunion committee is still active and plans to keep the website open for at least five more years. Doing so allows classmates to keep in touch using the private message feature of the website.  We can also keep the “In Memory” page updated as a reminder of those classmates who have passed.

We have also been discussing additional ways in which the class can be remembered going forward.

Currently we have decided to remember our classmates who served in the armed forces. Working with the VFW on Veterans Day we will have two United States flags displayed on a bridge in Newton. One will be “In Memory of” and one will be “In Honor of,” the latter being for those still among us.  Our flags will be displayed among the many flown by the VFW on Veterans Day.

Next, we have been working with the High School Guidance Staff to identify low-income, first-generation college bound students, who could use some financial help.  We have created a small scholarship fund in the name of the NHS Class of 72 and will be awarding the first scholarship this spring.

Finally, we have worked with the City of Newton’s Forestry department to plant a tree on the high school grounds. In front of that tree will be a small plaque which will read something to the effect of “Donated by the Class of 1972”. Still working out the final details but we are getting close.

Well, that wraps up our work so far. There have been some discussions around pulling together some small socials and as those plans take shape, we will make announcements well in advance.

 

I hope you are all looking forward to a great summer.

 

Best regards to all,

Your Reunion Committee
