Our 60th Class Reunion Is Being Planned For 2023

Greetings. We have good news. Your MHS Class of 1961 Reunion Committee met on July 28 to begin planning for our 60th Anniversary reunion. We are targeting the April-May timeframe of 2023 after a long delay caused by Covid. To keep cost down, we are looking at a Thursday time frame from 4 pm to 8 pm. We hope this works out well for everyone. A Thursday event would allow smaller groups to get together after the event on the following weekend. Also, to reduce costs, the committee is suggesting “heavy hors d'oeuvres” in lieu of a large dinner.

Of course, this is all dependent on finding the appropriate venue for this event. We have funds that we plan to use to subsidize the event. The committee will provide a date and a time as soon as possible so that you can “block out” the date and time on your calendar

The committee has decided to not publish a booklet for this event because of the heavy effort involved and because we have fewer classmates to support this effort. However, we want to “memorialize” our classmates who have passed with a handout and a ceremony at the event. We need your help in this effort. If you know of any classmates that have passed recently, please send us any information that you may have. However, to include them on our deceased list, we must also validate their passing through a newspaper clipping or official document to avoid embarrassing mistakes. The committee appreciates your help.

Please pass the information along to your fellow classmates.

More will follow soon, Your 60th Anniversary Reunion Committee

Our 75th Birthday Party Was a Winner!

75th Birthday Party - Parkside Grill and Lounge, 2307 - 5th Avenue, Moline, Illinois, August 11, 2018.

We had a small turnout for our 75th birthday party (44 happy people), but everyone still had a great time. The Parkside Grill and Lounge also did a superb job with our small group. The Parkside was renovated from the "Parkside Tavern" and still retains some of its old charm.
