40th Reunion Memories and Future Planning

I thought I would update the blog since it has been several months now since our 40th Reunion activities in June!  Such great memories and my only regret, like many others I have talked to, is that I wish we would have had more time.  There were many classmates I did not get a chance to spend as much time together as I would have liked!

As you know the GPN1970 Planning Committee's work continues and in fact we have added additional volunteers to locate classmates and to plan future events. We are meeting monthly!  I want to personally thank each of the Planning Committee members for all their hard work because without their assistance the 40th Reunion would have never come together nor future activities planned.  If you want to help out and join a great group of individuals please write to me at as we can always use more help.

Thanks to all classmates that filled out our 40th Reunion Survey.  The link to the Survey Monkey survey resultes is at the 40th Survey link on the webpage.  The committee has taken that feedback to move forward with plans for a 60th Birthday Party in 2012, 45th Reunion in 2015, and of course 50th Reunion in 2020.  For each of these events we are working closely with the Grosse Pointe South High School Class of 1970.  Stay tuned to our website, Google Groups Listserv, and Facebook Page for details as they become available.

If you have not viewed all the great photographs that were taken at all the 40th Reunion activities please do so by going to our Facebook Page under the Photos Tab.  You do not have to be a member of Facebook to view the photographs or other information on the page.  Thanks to everyone that submitted photographs!

I am also very pleased to annouce that Ahmed Ismail has put together a great slide show using all the photographs submitted along with music from our high school years.  You can download the slide show here. The file is in QuickTime format so if you are not on a Mac computer or do not have QuickTime installed on your Windows computer you can do so by downloading the free component here.  A big thanks to Ahmed for taking the time to put together this slide show!

Our biggest task is identifying classmates.  Even though we had an excellent turnout for the 40th Reunion activities we still have many classmates we have not found. Please go to the Classmate Finder Tab and if you see a classmate that has not been identified please fill out the easy to fill out form to let our Planning Committee know so we can include them for future events.

Take care.
