Hi Classmates!!  I've neglected writing in this Guest Book because as you know, I've been busy keeping your mailboxes exploding with all sorts of Reunion info.  In less than two weeks we'll be together... some of us for the first time in 50 years!  Yikes!!  Fortunately, we have a whole weekend to catch up.  The weekend is jam-packed with activities but most important is that we'll be eye-to-eye, with hugs, laughs, smiles and talks of nostalgia that will become cherished memories.  A photographer will be at the Dinner to capture our glorious time together... and the DJ will give us the reason to kick off our shoes and get up and dance.  Of course, we will honor the memory of our dear classmates who have passed away but will no doubt, be with us in spirit.      Get packin' ! I can't wait to see you all!! xo, Sheila

Thanks for your thoughtfulness, Nancy... and everyone who's expressed thanks... There are have several people involved in making our Reunion happen, and they will all be thanked at the Reunion.  At this time, though, let's add Sharyn Mirsky Levine and Larry Bloom - without whom Rich Bentley and I would be lost.
 
See you all in 25 or 26 days!! xo

The re-launching of the Valley Stream North 1968 web site is exciting!!  Now we're commemorating our 45th Reunion.  Look to see what you said about the 40th Reunion.

If you aren't convinced to BUY YOUR TICKETS TODAY, read some of the wonderful messages left by Classmates!

Hi All,
It was simply heartbreaking that I couldn't attend our 40th HS Reunion.  Unfortunately a prior family commitment didn't allow a choice.  I was blowned away viewing all the wonderful pixs from the weekend - I must admit that I had my Yearbook open, comparing people to 1968 pixs - some were so easy & others really had me guessing - just too funny!  Kudos - reunion committee - you did an amazing job!
Love, Barbara

What a wonderful night of fun and great people.  Jane and I had such a great time.  Seeing old faces and laughing as we did when we were young was great.  I am so happy to see so many of our classmates feeling well, enjoying life and having a good time.  The reunion committee did an outstanding job and each of you should proud of the opportunity you gave to all of us.  What a good looking bunch of people!  We had better get together again soon, I am not sure how much longer it will hold out.  Great night, great time, great people.  Wishing everyone happiness, health and continued enjoyment of life.

Wow, what a weekend!  Each of the four events (Friday night at the Hilton, softball at NHS, reunion at Ambrosia's, and still another get together at the Hilton) was just fantastic.  I'm so glad so many of you attended since it could never have been a success without you all.  So thank you all for coming.  Hopefully we can have an even bigger turnout the next time, whenever that will be!

I really enjoyed seeing my old friends.  I hope to hear from you and my invitation still stand for anyone who comes to the Washington, DC area (or Ft Myers, FL in the winter!).  My treat for a round of golf!

The reunion was incredibly wonderful, and everyone who put this together deserves a stand-up round of applause.  I haven't felt that exhilerated in years. Seeing so many people who meant the world to me for so long was a shot in the arm, and I was grinning from ear to ear driving to my daughter's after the party. We stayed up late into the night while I told her stories and we laughed til we cried. I hope to see everyone (and more!) again...it was wonderful. Love to all, Barbara

I haven't quite caught my breath yet, but I have to THANK EVERYONE who attended our 40th Reunion!  It was beyond wonderful to be with all of you and to see all of you enjoying each other.  It's a testament to the friendships we shared all of those years ago.  I hope there were rekindled friendships.
     In the next day or two we'll start posting photos of the Reunion.  Please send me photos you have taken and they will get posted.
   Thanks, again to YOU, my Friends.
xo, Sheila

Wow, 40 years, Holy Cow!  It seems like just a few weeks ago that Smith served me with a detention notice, Phil D. Banks was vanquishing me from his History class, Bernie Artz was hitting me with an eraser to wake me up, and Bob Burns was dragging me(by my left ear!) out of Phys Ed for goofing off.  Oh, what great memories!  
I was so excited to receive the notice about our 40th reunion, and want to thank Sheila, Rich, David, Sharon, and Richie for putting this all together, I know how difficult and time consuming this has been.  Although my first thought that there was no way I would miss the chance to reunite with some old friends and classmates, unfortunately a previous commitment will prevent me from doing so.  It would have been wonderful to see my dear friends Steve and Jane Evans, Tom Diganci, Joannne DeSantis, Elaine Murtha, Patti Braver as well as all of my former classmates.  Hopefully there will be another opportunity soon.  Anyway to all who attend, have a wonderful time, and take lots of pictures.  I am currently residing in Atlanta with my wife of 25 years, and our three kids.  Would love to hear from you if you are ever in the area.

I will be doing all I can to see if I can make the reunion, and hope I end up on the attendee list asap! I would really love to see everyone...whatever shape we're all in! I'll be working on the schedule to see what I can do. Love to all.

Class of 68, I can't believe it has been 40 years . I have been living in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida for over 30 years and have lost touch with many of my old classmates. I have made plane reservations and look forward to seeing old friends and classmates  and some that i grew up with since 1st grade. It seems a lot of classmates live in Florida " winter reunion  also"  ??

Hi class of '68!  Forty years??? Can't be....I'm not getting older; only you are!  I must have taught some of you at some point....Does anyone remember ANY French or Spanish???  Remember: I graduated from North in '60, and taught there from '64-'68...after I raised my 2 kids, I returned to teach in Forest Hills and eventually retired 2 years ago - but as a Guidance Counselor!  But you guys were my first teaching experience... and that was very special!  I have fond memories of many of you and of North High!
Enjoy the reunion.... and never lose touch with old friends (forgive that word!) or with your past! Those were good times!  Love to all.... Madey Sperber (Parlez-vous francais? Ou espagnol??)

Hey class of 68.  I can’t make the reunion – we’ll be traveling that weekend.  But I wish everyone the best.  I’ll miss seeing all of you, especially how old we all look.  I saw Elaine Murtha in the grocery store a few weeks ago.  It brought back some great memories.  By the way, Joanne D. – It’s strunz a mez!  Have fun.

I'm trying hard to make that date work for me; it'd be great fun to see all of you!  Ah, those were the days!  I know we were all born to be wild, and I'd love to see what condition your condition is in!  I'm sure it'll be just like a magic carpet ride, and if I remember the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Class of 68, there just may be a bunch of midnight confessions as you all dance to the music!   Hey Jude, please say hi to Abraham , Martin, and John for me, and here's to you, Mrs. Robinson!  If I'm unable to be there, I wish you all a a yummy, yummy, yummy time re-aquainting and reminiscing; 'cause there ain't nothing like the real thing!!!

Was speaking with Tom DiGanci last week about how much we both enjoyed high school.  There is not another year in history we would prefer to have grown up in.  More importantly the greatest part was being able to share memories, laughs and the bonds that shaped our lives with such wonderful classmates.  It is so exciting to return for our 40th reunion and to see old friends.  Looking forward to catching up, laughing and recapturing the memories we shared.  Hope all can come and looking forward to seeing you there!!

Hi all!
Sorry that I won't be able to be at the reunion. Maybe we could try to have one in Florida? I would gladly help coordinate it! Lots of people come to Florida over the Xmas vacations, so just a thought! I know Carol Wagner and Larry Welner are in Florida ( and they are married to each other) I look forward to seeing the pictures from the Reunion and hearing about everyone! I am on Facebook (my son signed me up) and he used my senior high photo so you'll recognize me! I'll attach some new ones!
