60TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION PLANS AND NEWS




CLASS OF 1965 60th BIRTHDAY DETAILS:

CANCELLATION!!!

I'm sorry to report that the committee has decided to cancel the birthday celebration picnic scheduled for June 23, 2007.  We had established minimum numbers for the event to be feasible and failed to meet the minimum.  It could be the time of year, gas prices, end of school or a number of things.
 
Those of you who have sent payment in advance will have your checks returned shortly by mail.  If there is interest in having an event in the fall please contact us with your thoughts and a suggested time frame.  We regret taking this action but have no choice under the circumstances.

The Newport News High School Class of 1965 has planned a 60th birthday party for all the members of our class, as well as any other Typhoons who wish to attend.  Please mark your calendars for June 23, 2007, from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm.  Well be at Shelter #12 at Newport News Park, the same location we used for our 55th birthday party.

The Reunion Team is finalizing the menu and activities, and well have an update soon regarding the cost for the event.  The 55th party was a great success and we hope that many of you will be able to attend this party.  After all, its not every year that we make it to 60.  Please also watch for announcements on the website.  If you would like additional information at this time please contact the committee at nnhs65@cox.net, or call Dave Arnold at (757) 618-6646.  We look forward to your company in June!

Following a meeting last week the Reunion Committee discovered a conflict on the initial date. 
The new date is one week earlier - June 23, 2007, still in Newport News Park at Shelter 12. 
Shelter 12 is the same one we used for the 55th birthday party. 
Thanks for making the update.

- Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 04/15/07
Thanks, Dave!
 


The NNHS 1965 Reunion Team is back in action!  As much as we may not like it we must face the fact that the majority of us will have our 60th birthday this year.  Even though we've only been out of school "a few years" we have verified that 60 is the correct number.  The 55th Birthday Picnic was well received, so we're going to do the same thing for the 60th. 

Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 30, 2007.  (OOOPS - SEE CHANGE ABOVE!!!)  We'll be meeting at Shelter #4 at Newport News Park on Jefferson Avenue in Newport News from 2:00 - 6:00 PM.   After some discussion among the Reunion Team, we decided this would be an open event with all NNHS classes welcome.  If you haven't yet reached 60 it will afford an opportunity to practice.  If you have, you can act like Jack Benny and move back a few years.  No matter the case, all are welcome.

It's never too early to make plans, so mark your calendar today and we'll follow up shortly with further information. 
If you have any questions please contact Dave Arnold at
dlarnold@cox.net or 757-618-6646
We look forward to seeing you in June!
