The 45th Reunion. Come get in the picture at the 50th

January 2023

Dear Class of 1973,

The plans are made, and the date has been set! April 28th is the starting date for our 50-year class reunion weekend celebration. Now is the time for you to return the enclosed reservation.  Starting Friday night, we will meet at Purgatory Golf Club, located at 12160 East 216th Street, Noblesville north of Clare on SR 37. The casual dress evening will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a social hour with cash bar. The buffet line opens at 6:00 p.m. for our dining pleasure. Then from 7:00 p.m.to 10:00 p.m., plan to spend the evening listening to “our” music and reminiscing with fellow classmates. If you have put off going to a class reunion, this is the reunion you will not want to miss!!!!! This is the Big One!

Deadline for Registration is April 1, 2023!

We have planned a very special Silent Auction which will take place during the event. Auction winners will be announced later in the evening. We have some items that you will NOT want to miss! Bring plenty of cash, checks, credit, and debit cards. All proceeds will go towards our donation to the NHS Alumni Association’s Scholarship fund.

The past classes have donated the following amounts to the NHSAA for Scholarships:

Class of 1963 – $6,700.00
Class of 1964 – $2,194.50
Class of 1965 – $6,702.50
Class of 1966 – $4,200.00
Class of 1967 – $10,000.00
Class of 1968 – $16,500.00
Class of 1969 – $10,358.00
Class of 1970 – $15,000.00
Class of 1971 – $1,700.00
Class of 1972 – $7,272.72

Our goal is $7,300 for our class donation for scholarships. You can send your scholarship donation with the enclosed reservation form, wait to see if there’s something at the auction, or do both! This is our opportunity to help NHS seniors who have worked hard for 4 years get our help towards a college degree. A criterion to receive a scholarship from the Alumni Association is the student must have a relative(s) who attended NHS. Presently, our class has taken in $2,660 for scholarships. Help us reach our goal by including your donation with your reservation form. This donation is NOT tax deductible.

When filling out the enclosed form, you can also choose to contribute to the general fund, which is used to pay for the expenses associated with planning and executing the reunions such as the postage, envelopes, printing, table decorations, etc. Any contribution is appreciated and is also NOT tax deductible.

Would you like to tour our old high school and the new high school? We are working on arranging a tour; however, we need a head count so we know how many school buses to set-up. We would meet at our old high school, now Ivy Tech at 10:00am Saturday, April 29th. After touring our old school, we would take busses over to the new high school for a tour there. The buses would return us to Ivy Tech.

In addition to our class reunion on Friday, our class will be the honored 50 – year class on Saturday at the annual NHS Alumni Banquet held at Noblesville High School located at 18111 Cumberland Road.  Jeff Zeckel will be our speaker. Plan to attend and reminisce with other classes from the 70’s along with classes before and after.  Average attendance is over 300 alumni.  Jim Dandy will provide our meal. This reservation is a separate reservation in addition to your class reunion reservation. Each of you should receive an alumni newsletter in early March that has a reservation form to fill out and send back to the NHS Alumni Association. If you haven’t received a newsletter by mid-March, please let us know so we can get one to you. The cost for the evening is $22.00. All the details about the evening are in the newsletter. You may bring one guest to sit with you at our reserved tables. Towards the end of the evening, our class will present a massive check, with hopefully an equally massive amount, to the Alumni Board.  If you plan to donate, please include your donation on this reservation form included with this letter, NOT the Alumni newsletter reservation form.
