Welcome to the Northfield Mount Hermon Class Of 1957 web site - your "home base" for exchanging messages, news, pictures, announcements, etc. with our classmates.

Please take a quick tour of the site - review class histories and epilogue, check out the Class Photo Gallery, check the Message Forum for discussions, etc.  Also, see how things have (and have not) changed since "our days" by taking the NMH Video Tours.

Enjoy our class website, and if you have suggestions for improvement please share them.

Click this NMH Magazine link to see the Spring 2020 edition, and follow this Class Notes link to view our class's reflections on reaching the tender age of 80!  This digital-only issue highlights alumni, the Class of 2020, and the NMH campus community as they navigate the world of COVID-19.

Did you ever imagine what it would be like to be sailing across a stormy ocean without a navigational chart? We have not… however, in some ways we are experiencing something similar these days of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is unprecedented in our lifetime.

Above is the lead paragraph of a note you received via NMH from Darell and Joyce reaching out to all of our classmates during these challenging times.  If you haven't already, please read the entire note by clicking here.  We'd love to hear from you.

Despite the dire coronavirus situation in this country and the whole world we remain optimistic that things will be sufficiently settled down by September so we can continue with our 2020 Fall Fling as planned: 

Location: Geneva Point Center (GPC) in Moultonborough, NH

Dates: September 22-24, 2020

Meals: On the GPC campus from Tuesday noon 9/22 to Thursday noon 9/24

Housing: 10 bedrooms on two levels, each with two full size beds and private bath overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee

Here are links to NMH Magazine Fall 2019NMH Magazine Spring 2019, and NMH Magazine Fall 2018.  Be sure to read our class notes (click on magnifying glass at bottom right of screen and search for "magmer" to jump to our page).  Jeanne Magmer has again done a superb job of gathering and presenting all the news that's fit to print for our class!

Here we are, minus Denny Wood Stringfellow, for Fall Fling 2019. We are no longer 39, but we have the energy and enthusiasm  of a younger than 80 age that some of us have reached.

How many can you identify? Extra point for those you can distinguish N’ers from MH-spouses! Send us your scores!

Our Fall Fling at Geneva Point Conference Center in NH brought together folks from OR and WI… PA and NY as well as ME, VT and NH.

Wonderful conversation was the highlight as we soberly acknowledged our age and thankfully discussed “What’s next?”. 

Between contemplative times, we hiked (walked?), kayaked, read and just enjoyed the wonderful views and meditative thoughts.

The Class Meeting  brought thoughts of all of you “57ers  who were not with us. Plans for our 65th Reunion June 2022 included a discussion of what topics might be of interest to you as well as which or who amongst us would be interested in presenting.  Might that be you?

But first… we want to make sure you are planning on coming! We promise a wonderful gathering of old friends and new. You will be hearing from us… and better yet, contact Joyce Arthur or Steve Springer  and tell us your plans at this point and ask what you might do.

The Kelloms:  Marilyn Kellom was our class's Faculty Advisor at Northfield, so she and her husband, Dick, were invited to join our 60th reunion celebration.  Marilyn honored us with a presentation covering her "secret faculty courtship", discussion of some of the school rules and practices back in the day, some insight into behind-the-scenes decision-making regarding sale of the Northfield campus, and other interesting events during her tenure.  Click on this link - KellomsVideo - to view the video.
