Fall Fling 2020 cancelled!

You may be surprised and disappointed, but it really does make sense.

In view of the ongoing pandemic and the fact that we are all in the particularly-vulnerable group, those of us who have spent many hours organizing our second annual 1957 FALL FLING this Fall have decided that we must cancel this year's September 22-24 event at Geneva Point Center.

We recognize that we will need to organize a similar event in 2021 as we continue to plan our return to the NMH campus for our 65th reunion in 2022.  Enthusiasm for hosting the GPC again this 2020 suggests that we do a Fall Fling 2021 at GPC.

Meanwhile, suggestions for the near future are:  Call or send a message to at least five NMH '57 classmates, just to say hello, tell stories, or ask questions!  Send Holiday Cards to classmates. Dream about what our 65th reunion would be like and be prepared to share that.  Join one of our classmate get-reacquainted Zoom Meeting calls.

Holiday plans are already in the makings for a Zoom gathering, so stay tuned!

Lloyd, Joyce, Steve, Coop and Dave have current info on many classmates if you need phone numbers, etc. To leave a message or ask a question click on Contact Us.

Enjoy the Summer and Fall, and STAY SAFE!

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.

Malcolm Peck provided us with fascinating insights into Islamic Terrorism during our reunion.  Follow the link to read a summary of his presentation -  Islamic Terrorism: How Great Is The Danger And How Do We Defeat It

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.
