Welcome to the Great Neck North/South High Class Of 1960 Web Site

Small get-togethers are happening....send me a photo and I will post it.

I avoid using our class web site to further

commercial ventures of our classmates.  However,

I just received a request to publicize an eBook

authored by our classmate Barry Small.  The

story sounds so bizarre, I am making an exception

and letting you all know that


7 HIT ATTEMPTS" is available on Amazon.



       OCTOBER 13-15, 2017

In case you’ve been thinking about coming to the 
mini LA reunion this fall (Oct. 13-15), but haven’t 
yet decided, here’s one more chance to ponder it 
and then say yes to what promises to be a
special weekend together on the West Coast.

Here’s what we’ve got going, so far:

- We expect the reunion price to be $100, a flat 
rate for the weekend that covers a casual (and 
delicious) welcome dinner on Friday evening at 
Ellen Schlesinger Friedman’s house in 
Brentwood; and a more formal dinner Saturday 
night at Guido’s (classic Italian style). As with 
past class reunions, if price is a deterrent, there 
are options. Please get in touch with Keith 
privately, at  

- We’re working on one organized event for 
Saturday afternoon (final plans TK). We also 
have a list, compiled by Judi Hochman, of other
good options in and around LA for those who 
want to head off separately.  Here are a few of 

Walk down to Venice beach area with street 
people, stores,  beach.

Walk on the Santa Monica pier, beach, or Third 
Street Promenade.

Self-realization Fellowship Lake Shrine off W. 
Sunset Blvd., a place of quiet and meditation 
overlooking a small beautiful lake with swans 
and birds.

Cross country shopping in Malibu. Beautiful park 
overlooking sculpture garden. Lunch outdoors at 
Tony's Restaurant (middle eastern food) in Malibu 

Hike up to Inspiration Point.

Will Rogers state park off Sunset Blvd.  near 
26th St.

Train ride from Santa Monica to downtown.

Visit Grand Central Market, Olivera St.; visit Union 
train station (near Chinatown) and return by train.

For something very LA: Santa’s Alley, a Downtown 
walk among stalls of clothing, luggage, toys.

For those with a car, there’s Reagan’s library in 
Simi Valley.

And, of course, the L.A. classics: La Brea Tar Pits 
and Museum, The Getty Center, Hollywood Bowl 
Museum, Petersen Automotive Museum, L.A. 
County Museum of Art, Geffen Contemporary Art 
at MOCA, Armand Hammer Museum on UCLA 
campus, etc.

- Sunday brunch. Selected cafe TK.

- Below is a list of a few of the many good hotels in 
and around the Brentwood/Bel Air/Westwood area,
in the vicinity of Ellen’s house; also near UCLA, 
Getty Museum, Hammer Museum.  Lower rates 
available through Expedia,,, etc.

                        Lewis E. Love

        Memorial Science Education Award


At its 50th Reunion, the Class of 1963 (North) announced its

intention to establish an award in memory of Lewis Love, whom many

class members consider to be the best teacher they ever had, as its

class gift to the Great Neck Public Schools. A small committee worked

to make the award a reality.


Through 2016, we raised ~$60,000 (~half of which was donated by our

Class of 1960 members) that will fund an Award of up to $10,000 annually,

for at least 6 years, for projects that will advance science education in the

Great Neck Public Schools. Any tenured teacher in the Great Neck Public

Schools will be eligible to apply for the award - s/he need not be a science

teacher. We wanted to establish a system for granting the award that will

continue beyond our personal abilities to manage it, so we have established

a rotating committee of teachers and students who will judge the applications

each year.


We continue to seek additional donations. With your help and the help of

the many other people who were touched by Mr. Love's magic in both the

North and South schools, we can extend the duration of the Love Award,

a meaningful tribute to an extraordinary teacher.


We are asking you to do two things: make a generous contribution to

the Lewis E. Love Memorial Science Education Award, and forward

this appeal and the donation form and FAQs to as many Great Neck

alumni as you can.   (Click on "Love FAQs & Donation Form" on

the left hand side of this page).


You will see on the donation form that all donations must be made by

check to the Great Neck Public Schools and must be accompanied by the

form so that the School District can keep track of and send

acknowledgements to donors. As the check will be made out to the Great

Neck Public Schools, donations to the award are tax-deductible to the

extent of the law.If you have any questions that are not answered by

the attached form or FAQs, please feel free to contact any member of

the fundraising committee.
