Military Recognition

The Metuchen High School librarian, Patricia Glave, has taken over the 'Wall of Honor' project from a recently retired teacher.  The idea is to have any alumni who have served or is serving in the military submit an 8 x 10 standard military portrait which will be placed in a frame with an engraved name plate and dates of military service.  The photos will be hung on the walls of the library.  There are several there now.  The contact information for those who are interested or have questions:
Patricia Glava-Librarian:
Also let me know so I can put something on the website in regards to their service.

Your Reunion Committee


We wanted to let everyone know that we as the Class of 1965 have purchased a Brick for the MHS Booster Club Buy-A-Brick Campaign to support the MHS Athletic Program.  The brick paver will be displayed at the MHS Stadium in Honor of the Class of 1965.  When I was at the stadium I took a photo of the brick.



We've learned, laughed, and faced many challenges together.  Let's not let those endearing memories or friendships fade.  I hope all of you have rekindled old friendships and maybe found a few new ones at our 50th Reunion.  Hope everyone had a great time!


Some sad news.  James Bitler passed away on October 21, 2015.  He lived in Metuchen.


There are five things that you cannot recover in life: 

(1) The Stone...after it's thrown 
(2) The Word...after it's said,

(4) The Time...after it's gone. 
(5) A person...after they die

Hi everyone,
I'm sorry that I wasn't able to make it to the reunion. It sounds as though you all had a great time. Wish I could have been there. However
I have some sad news to pass along. Olivier passed away suddenly on Christmas Eve from cardiac arrest. Many of you may have remembered him
as the "Frenchman" and being on the football team when we were freshman at MHS. He was certainly one of a kind. He lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed himself every step along the way.
Some of you have older brothers and sisters who knew him so I thought this would be the best venue to let you all know.
Best regards to all,
Nancy Parchois
