ANNOUNCEMENTS

A SIMPLE REMINDER THAT OUR 55TH REUNION WILL TAKE PLACE IN 2022.  That means our Committee will need to meet in March of 2021 to at least be able to announce a date for 2022.  Our Classmates are used to planning a year in advance.  Remember, while we have a group that tends to show up for the Committee, we welcome all who wish to have a say in the event to come to any (or all) the Committee meetings that will be announced from this site.

After the REALLY BIG 50TH, the expectation will be for the 55th to be much more subdued (read that - easier to accomplish) and will be designed around increased ease of socializing and catching up with friends.

This website was created by your classmates to assist with organization of reunions and special events like our 70th Birthday Party in 2019!  This is a place just for you - to reconnect; to keep in touch with everyone; to obtain the most up-to-date information; to share memories; to create new memories; and to let everyone know what's changed and what's stayed the same.  PLUS THIS WILL BE YOUR MAIN SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR FUTURE REUNIONS!

If this is your first visit, here is how to get started:

  1. Click on "Classmate Profiles" tab near top of left menu bar
  2. Scroll to find your name & click on it
  3. Now follow prompts to fill out your profile and/or make corrections to contact info
  4. If your name is not listed, use "Contact Us" tab to notify us and we can add your name (you may have graduated late or left for another school in your senior year and wish to attend our reunion)
  5. Supply your home address (for snail mail invite); your email address (for quicker contact); and your phone number (if we have any questions).  PLEASE NOTE - ONLY ADMINISTRATOR CAN ACCESS THIS INFORMATION!
  6. We encourage you to upload a recent photo and/or any other photos in your profile
  7. IF YOU ARE A VISITOR, i.e., faculty, family, friend or other MHS Alumni and would like to see more of our website, simply send us a message and we will contact you
  8. Once your profile has been created, you will have the option of contacting any person through this website if they have registered.  AND, the great part is your email address is protected - it is kept private.  If you have any questions feel free to contact John Usmial (jusmial@aol.com)  
  9. NOTE:  If you would like to contact a classmate but have not registered/created a profile, we may be able to help.  We keep info confidential, but if you contact John Usmial (jusmial@aol.com), he can email the person you are attempting to contact and they can decide whether or not to contact you.
