The following press release was sent out today to several news sources.  Please pass it on so we can get the word out to all of our fellow classmates.  We are off and running!

Class President, Robert Cleary announced today that the Grosse Pointe North High School Charter Class of 1970 will be having their 40th Reunion at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club on Saturday, June 19, 2010. Activities are planned the entire weekend starting with a Friday Night get together, the reunion on Saturday night, and a Class Picnic on Sunday.  The reunion will be the first one since their 20th in 1990 and the Planning Committee, chaired by Edward Eroe and Diana Moghissi Weaver, with a committee of twelve others, expect a huge turnout since they have gone to great efforts, starting in July 2009, to find fellow classmates by using Facebook, Twitter, Classmates.com, postcards, phone, word of mouth, and a new website at http://www.GPN1970.com.  Classmates can enter current Classmate Profile information, view pictures, leave messages, take quizzes and polls, sign up for the class e-mail listserv and social media sites, and register and pay for all reunion events through the easy navigation at the website.

There have been several discussions regarding a joint party with the planners of the Grosse Pointe South High School Class of 1970, who are having their 40th reunion at the Bay View Yacht Club on August 7, 2010, but since both schools were too far along in planning on their respective events they are exploring working together on one large party for their 50th Reunion in 2020.  The class of 1970 was the first class split when Grosse Pointe North opened in 1968.  Many classmates got to know each other in their sophomore year at Grosse Pointe High School in 1967 and want to renew those friendships.  Also many Brownell students had been together all through elementary school only to be split for their Junior and Senior Years.  Grosse Pointe South Class of 1970 also have a website up at http://gpshs1970.info.  In the meantime, the planning committees will be providing invitations for classmates at both schools to attend each of their respective 40th Reunion Events in June and August.
